  1. Richard says:

    I wish my college had offered a course in applied mythology.

  2. Eugene says:

    It would be the greatest class ever.

  3. TekServer says:

    Closest I ever got was an Eastern Philosophy class. One of the coolest classes I ever took.

    I love the “gods and plants don’t mix” line; it goes along with all of the vegetable issues Digger has encountered or heard about recently …


  4. Xyon says:

    I am going to make that line into a sign and put it in my garden.

  5. Gen says:

    Richard and Eugene, your icons are mirror twins of each other. It’s so cute!

  6. Trogdog says:

    They have courses in applied mythology. It’s called terrorism. If your going for your B.A. (bachelor of A-hole), you probably would want to minor in stone throwing, righteous indignation on public radio, or picketing abortion clinics.
    I myself went for cult cultivation, with a minor in lobbying. …which hasn’t really paned out yet.

  7. Murasaki says:

    Digger summed it up pretty well. If I found an Applied Mythology class, and it taught us that stuff, I’d take it again and again…even after I pass. Just to have one class that was fun.

  8. BronzeGolem says:

    Actually there really are courses in comparative mythology, someone I once met on one of those old people bus trips (the things you do for a girl…) mention having taken one, but as far as I know it only covered, christianism Judaism, islamism and Buddhism (and the comparisons between all of them) , which is reasonable just those for alone have enough material to talk about for months. It really sounded like a really interesting class to take.

  9. Ponyhome says:

    Digger… that’s geese. Ducks just stand around with a goofy smirk on their beaks and quack and occasionally do promotional commercials for supplemental insurance. Oh, well, my wife doesn’t know the difference either.

  10. JET73L says:

    Absolutely correct, Ponyhome. However…


    Perhaps Digger confused a large Pygmy Goose for an embarassingly small Australian Wood Duck? I’ve never met a cotton pygmy goose, and what I’ve seen of them on the internet was surprisingly sparse with regards to them being right little creeps, or hissing at people, but I expect they are fairly similar to Digger’s description, with the added fact that they can break a man’s back with a single kick*.

    *That may be swallows, not pygmy geese. I never was one for ornithology ; p
