Piled Higher And Deeper

The most recent Piled Higher and Deeper strip (from April 4) amuses me. I have attended universities built in the first three architectural styles listed. The Fairest College is primarily a Red Brick Wonderland. My master's degree institution is done in the ever-so-charming Neo-Penal style. And the University of Chicago is (literally -- this was done on purpose) a Gothic Envyist campus (although it sports a Neo-Penal library).

I loved the Eye of Sauron on the Gothic Envyist.

If you come to Chicago, I'll show you the Eye of Sauron over Rockefeller Chapel. . .

I am -particularly- amused at the Eye hovering over the Gothic Envyist campus. *gigglefit*

EDIT: Seems I'm not the only one, too ;)

It's the details that make Piled Higher and Deeper the work of comic genius that it is.

My old school seems to belong to the Modernist It Cost How Much? architectural style. At least, I can't truly fit it in anywhere else. (It certainly didn't start out that way, though.)

I think that's the style that I hate the most. Because there's so much fanfare about it, and you can see that it looks pretentious.

Hehehe! I've attended or worked at most of those. That is a great strip. I've got to remember to look at it more often because I always enjoy it when you remind me of it.

One of the ethno professors told the class I was in not to look at it unless they had five hours free to read all the strips in the archive. It's that good.

Fortunately, I'd already gotten hooked on it before he said that.
