When I talk about boarding school people always assume it was a juvenile delinquent type thing.
“I went to boarding school.”
“Really? Did you do something really bad or something?”
Grmph. It would be more fun to get a Hogwarts reaction.
thank you. this made me laugh harder then i have in weeks.
Heh. I went to school with Mat and I can confirm there was a tuck shop but no owls. Mat did however run around in a cloak though. This is awesome, great site, great stuff. You just made me loose 2 hours!
You are ridiculously cute.
“Candy”? A true Brit would have said “sweets” (definitely when refering to childhood sugar-based products) or just “chocolate”.
I’m actually listening to the harry potter audiobook as I read this so I laughed twice as hard.
Also, I wasn’t able to comment on the transmen comic, so I’ll say it here- I agree they are TOTALLY hot!!!
Shutting down comments on the “transmen are hotter to me than mere ordinary men” post is probably wise, but I have to say that one of my female friends transitioned, and is now a man with far more exacting grooming and taste in clothes than most of the men I know, which is certainly a look that appeals to a lot of people.
you are the most adorable person in the world
Whenever I say I go to boarding school, everyone says “Ooh I’m sorry.” And then I have to stop and explain that I love my school.
I have to say, this is my favorite DAR comic. :] I’ll miss updates on this. Look forward to seeing your other work, Erika! :D
I like to pretend all my British friends went to Hogwarts…
s’ok erika… all the everyday british types take the mickey out of the boarders too. a bit like your prep schools, if i’m getting my references right.
(we just bought our sweets / candy / whatever on the way home from a hard day’s schoolin’, like any typical kids, and didn’t have to hide them away in a special box :D)
poor bastard – hope he’s recovered ok…
LMAO i loved this one!!
Lmao! Just brilliant! :3
It’s not just boarding schools, my primary school used to have a tuck shop, both a mini one inside the school where the school had bought a certain amount of sweeties and sold them at break times, and then there was a little shop on the corner of the street across the road from the school, and it’s actually called “Tasty tuck!” 8D
Howgwarts isn’t in England anyway, its acutaly in Scotland.
…for some values of “actually”.
I went to boarding school expecting it to be mildly hogwartsy. Then I went, became horribly depressed, and got sent home. And I didn’t even get a candy box.
I laughed so unexpectedly, I spit. Admittedly it is unladylike but this was TOO hilarious. Love it.
