Life is offensive, get used to it.

This comic was called “The Academia Waltz” and was created by Berke Breathed while a student at the University of Texas. As is often the case, he later used this same gag in a Bloom County strip. Still, it is to the point and relevant (even 30 years on). Note the penciled correction of “Sexism offends me!” to “Sex on TV offends.” It is difficult to tell, but it looks like Breathed’s own hand. I wonder when that might have been added/changed. And here’s irony. Googling “Opus life is offensive” yields stories about a firestorm that an Opus strip (the sequel to Bloom County) caused in Sept. 2007. Sure enough. Life is offensive. So is the Gospel.
