How to Analyze Classic Literature

The dialog in the first three panels of this comic are made up of what I call “The Moby Dick Joke.” It was my favorite thing I ever wrote as a stand-up comic. I would stand up in front of rooms full of drunk people and share this complex analogy about a famously long, dense novel. More than one of my fellow comedians expressed amazement at it, but they were mostly impressed by the fact that I talked at length about Moby Dick in my act without ever mentioning male genitalia.

Note from Missy: And incredibly, those crowds of drunks usually enjoyed the joke! Scott Meyer, ladies and gentlemen, bringing fine literature to the masses.
