Cool story, bro

Don’t get overexcited, this is NOT a new Happysad cartoon!

On the contrary, this is an old one dating back to 2007. The reason I’m picking it up again is this cool anecdote: some time ago, I was contacted by a New York philosophy professor who came to ask permission to use this cartoon in a book he’s writing on quantum mechanics in popular culture. How cool is that? I love knowing my cartoons will end up in some academic publication on another continent. I love it even more when people have the decency to at least request permission, instead of just stealing it like most people tend to do. By the coolest thing was that in his e-mail, he actually addressed me in Dutch! Turns out he studied in my home town some thirty years ago. Nice touch :-)
