Do your guys’ professors use the word “cartoon” to describe a drawing? And is this normal? One of my undergrad professors used to do it too, but I thought it was just him. Now all of my professors do it. Am I the only one that’s like, ‘wtf that’s not a cartoon?’
Not a cartoon:
Yes! I think it’s part of the professor lexicon… because “figure” is too mainstream.
I’ve never heard a professor refer to a illustration as a cartoon. Even when it actually was a cartoon, the professor said “I found this ‘comic’ through google.”
Me: Dr. RNA, one of our exams is scheduled on a day that the med school is supposedly closed.
Dr. RNA: what do you mean?
Me: the academic calendar says we are closed on that day for break.
Dr. RNA we don’t have breaks here.
Me: Oh… *deletes Winter Break, Spring Break, and Sleep from iCal*
