  1. Has anyone ever heard of a nun teaching in a public school? I guess it’s possible…

  2. I don’t think nuns have taught in public schools for decades — not in habits, anyway.

    But even if they did, they certainly wouldn’t be teaching theology.

  3. I guess he’s in Sunday school.

  6. Maybe it’s not a Catholic school… maybe it’s Halloween and the teacher is dressed as a nun. She’s having people call her “sister” for the day.

  7. Halloween on December 15th?

  8. My 12th grade math teacher was an elderly woman with an identical twin who was a nun. We didn’t know this. One day we came to class and there was (we thought) our teacher sitting behind her desk wearing a traditional habit.

    And then a few minutes later our teacher walked in.

    Apparently it was a gag they pulled every few years.

  9. It’s possible he was at Catachism or whatever its called nowadays.

  10. What a great CIDU!, at first seemingly impossible and then credibly solved. I’m glad it took 3 hours ’cause I got to read the headline every time I came back.
    This one made me miss the old wait-a-week format when sometimes (what I thought was) the answer would hit me on the 4th or 5th day.

    I’ve added “Soup to Nutz” to my daily reading.

  11. Well, Kevin, you CAN always just not peek at the answers for a few days…

  12. um, this isn’t a canadian strip, is it? Canadia has some weird system where the christian schools take place in the public schools.

    I’m sure that’s not it but I just had to throw that particular weirdness out there . . .

  13. On a different note: what’s up with the fruit on the sign in the right background of the first strip. I’ve never seen this strip – is it know for random backgrounds or is it supposed to mean something?

  14. > um, this isn’t a canadian strip, is it? Canadia has some weird system where the christian schools take place in the public schools.

    No, we don’t. We have public schools, and Catholic schools. You certainly won’t find a nun teaching in a public school, and I don’t know that you’d still find them teaching in Catholic schools.

  15. There is often interesting stuff going on in the background of this strip – you have to look closely. When it’s inside, a lot of times the pictures on the wall change, and frequently feature classic comics characters like Jiggs & Krazy Kat.
