The Unfunnies: Varsity Vic!

Varsity Vic!

I was going to say something about this being about the only sport that I've ever seen Varsity Vic participate in, despite his name, but then I looked it up, and it turns out that though the most common use of 'varsity' is in regard to sports teams and other competitive arms of universities and colleges, it can also refer to those institutions in general. So Vic can be varsity simply by virtue of being a college student.

Of course, that revelation is now throwing me for a loop, because I always thought that Vic was in high school. I guess that all of the jalopy-riding and eccentric hat-wearing of the majority of his cartoons makes a bit more sense in that light.

As for the comic itself, I have but one thing to say: that girl has admirable levels of self-esteem.
