This comic makes no sense, I know. But it reminds me of the road trip my family took in 2013, when we stopped at my old college campus I hadn't seen for almost 40 years. Buildings that were shiny and new in the 1970s had not been maintained at all, and looked sad. My dorm, which was new back then, was completely gone. Buildings that were around since the 19th century were the same, but less charming. My kids were not impressed. This comic is from Things in Squares.
