While Insert Life Here does not ‘officially’ take place at RIT (for legal reasons/a blood oath), today’s comic is heavily based on the old Alma Mater. Every few years the college does something preemptive, and it ends up gaining a lot of popularity. Armed and suicidal gunman turns out to be just a drunk kid (gets tazed), school goes under lockdown when a student brings an alleged weapon on campus (turned out to be an umbrella), etc, etc.

Not that I mean to undermine Public Safety’s authority…I’d rather be protected and have these stories/memes than, well, the alternative.
