man who literally wipes the smile off people's faces

Also, this idea was somewhat inspired by my Microeconomics Professor, a curmudgeonly-yet-ultimately-pleasant old man who once made an example of a factory manager (portrayed by a crude smiley face on the whiteboard) who thought he'd be smart by opening another plant, to produce and sell twice as much. I forget what the lesson was, but ultimately the manager failed and his company went bankrupt. The professor then re-noticed his drawing on the board and said, "get that smile off your face, pal", instantly removing the mouth with an eraser.

Maybe you had to be there, but it was the funniest thing I've ever seen in my 18 years of education. So, this one's for you, Professor.

This did just the opposite for me - the comic not only made me smile, but your professor comment made me LOL!

Funny story about the Prof...gotta love those curmudgeons that make higher ed worth it all.

As for this, it's kinda freaky. You may want to sell this idea to Stephen King, I hear he's running out of ideas.

RUNNING out of ideas? that implies that he had ideas to begin with (ooooo).

i really like this one, though it saddens me that the first thing i notices is how twig-like the appendages of the blond dude are.
