You’ll just have to trust me when I say that I had a reason for drawing this.

Yeap, when I behave like that Octopus, multitasking and all over the place, I end up like that shark – very little on the paper or screen 😉

That’s my problem, too!

Love this. It can be interpreted so many ways!

I was about to say the same thing!
Glad you both enjoyed it!

Your illustration works for me.

Thanks! One of my students complained that the shark is anatomically incorrect. Curiously, this student didn’t take issue with the fact that the shark is sitting in a desk and thinking human thoughts. But the fins are apparently a little off.

Love it! So what was the reason?

It’s from a grammar checklist I wrote to address some issues I spotted as I was grading a recent assignment. Mainly, I was just trying to fill up space at the bottom of the page, but our last unit examined, among other things, different ways of thinking about intelligence. I guess it’s a variation on Einstein’s famous quote: “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

The drawing made me giggle and got me curious. I love that Einstein quote you mentioned above. It really is about frame of reference in life sometimes. 🙂

Thanks! It’s one of my favorite quotations.

Your shark looks like Godzilla.

It’s also radioactive.
