Frazz (2/19/09)


Here’s the thing. The main character in Frazz is a janitor who flies in the face the stereotypical working class schmo. The strip takes great pains to show readers that a janitor can be creative, caring, ambitious, intelligent and cooler than most of the stuffed shirts who sign his paychecks. So why would Frazz upend that nuanced portrait by having its main character reminisce about his poor grades, mop in hand? Beats me, although I think it may have something to do with the argument that grades are not a true measure of intelligence. That’s a fair point, but I still have a hard time believing someone as savvy as Frazz would be saddled with a D-plus average.
