More from the archives...

It's been fun looking through the old graphics files. I came across another poster that I wanted to share from my days at the computing center. Although I knew of Pascal only as the author of those many dreaded Pensées that we had to translate in French class, it turns out that he was a prominent mathematician in the 17th century and the Pascal computer language was named in his honor. I had a vague idea of when he lived ('though it turned out I was off by about 100 years on the fashions), so I drew these little charmers and thought no more about it. A few days after the posters went up, I was confronted by the instructor for the course (whom I'd never met). It turned out he had "issues" as they say now and thought I was making fun of him with the mice!! Some people have no sense of humor.

  1. That is hilarious. Was he short and 'mousey' looking? If not, then he doesn't have a leg (or paw) to stand on. I love mice.

  3. Brilliant.

    I think you just undid all the damage I suffered during my 7:30 AM Pascal course, senior high school year.

  4. Glad to be of service!! If you're like me, the fact that it was at 7:30 a.m. would have been damaging enough!!
