vert-4Spine Potato

I ran this cartoon just after midterms.  We were all pretty “brain-dead” and could relate to this cartoon.  Vert is the typical “couch potato” here.  You’ll notice he has a bottle of CSF in his hand — short for Cerebral Spinal Fluid [clear liquid that your brain and spinal cord float around in]:  a fitting drink for a spine.
