George Clinton
I still wish it were true.
Title text: I still wish it were true.

Explanation

George Clinton is an American musician most famous for his funk music and wild hair style, which we see depicted in the comic. Apparently, Randall was such a great fan of the man, he once started a rumor that he also has a University-degree in Mathematics. But he wanted it so bad to be true, Randall started to believe the rumor itself.

The mathematic equations on the board are Laplace Transforms for functions, by the way.

Transcript

Narrator: I once tried to start the urban legend that George Clinton has a B.A. in mathematics
[George Clinton indicates equations on a blackboard]
Narrator: ...but I wanted it to be true so badly that I started believing it myself.

Discussion

Rikthoff (talk) Does anybody know what the correct date of issue of this comic is? Also, does anybody know why Randall loves George Clinton?

Have you listened to George Clinton? It's seems reasonable to me that Randall should love him. Blaisepascal (talk) 03:54, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
