Ill-advised comics (aren’t they all)?

I drew this while waiting for my upgrade meeting to start today. Guess I thought this was how it was going to pan out.

Basically I have put this up because I have no pride, someday this is going to stop me getting an academic job isn’t it.

Also, this is the possibly inauspicious start to Self Aware Comics Week at Avoiding the Bears (well, I have at least one more to post that fits that theme, at any rate).
