Cartoon creation maps the trials and tribulations of law student life

A series of law school-themed comic strips created by the new US Vice President has surfaced online.

Donald Trump’s right-hand man, Mike Pence, attended Indiana University‚Äôs Robert H. McKinney School of Law back in the 1980s.

Having spent a number of years as a lawyer in private practice, Pence — turning his back on the law — landed a gig at a right-wing think tank before eventually making the move into politics.

But what many people might not know is that during his law school days the Vice President was a budding comic book artist.

According to art and culture blog Hyperallergic, Pence landed a regular slot in his local school newspaper, Dictum. In a series called ‘Law School Daze’, Pence brought to life the trials and tribulations of life as a law student.

*Disclaimer: some of his strips are distinctly unfunny and others are just downright bizarre*

In one doodle, Pence depicted law students complaining about medical students using their library facilities.

In another, he sketched a third-year student sharing some pointers about parking with a law fresher.

One edition of ‘Law School Daze’ appears to take aim at “big” law firms who only want to employ “aggressive men”.

While in another sketch, Pence drew a weary-looking law graduate with a diploma and briefcase in hand.

Corbyn has never even attempted to crack a joke in his life I bet, the humourless trot.

It’s the willingness to hate which identifies the modern liberal

Unsure how an (admittedly unnecessary) line about them being unfunny qualifies as ‘hate’.

Do you need a safe space?

Unlike the right, who are known for their loving, tender, accepting approach to all, particularly those from other countries and cultures.

Stop spreading Vladimir Putler’s propaganda. Liberals represent LOVE, even when they are sucker-punching their political opponents before scurrying away like rats.

A bit rich from someone spouting anti-Semitism at every opportunity.

Trumpy’s just a major league asshole (since he likes America so much, seems correct to couch comments on him in such terms)

I’m sure a punch in the face is coming his way as happened to his no-doubt hero Richard Spencer. I won’t necessarily approve – but I will laugh my tits off….

It’s amazing – for someone who loves the gay hating Pence, you really are constantly excited to lick his behind.

Behave ! It’s a level of humour that makes Lee Mack seem on a par with Lenny Bruce..

Pence is not a funny man – in many many ways…
