Mike Pence spent part of his time at law school working on the world’s lamest comic strip

It's really unfunny.

Before he was Donald Trump’s running mate, Mike Pence was a law school student with a hobby. When he wasn’t hitting the books, Pence was toiling away at a satirical comic called, “Law School Daze.” The comic follows a fumbling law student named Daze as he navigates the insular world of law school.

Hey, who doesn’t love a good laugh? There’s nothing like comedy to blow off some steam.

There’s just one small problem. Pence’s comics were the most humorless things we’ve ever seen.

We’ve read them all and had nary a laugh. We did, however, notice some similarities between Pence and his alter ego.

For one thing, both Pence and Daze seem to have a soft spot for authority figures who talk to others like they are literal pieces of garbage.

Hm. Could this explain his affinity for his running mate?

According to Daze, attention is king.

Another common point is that Pence and Daze think the law is generally hilarious.

Not that they have a firm grasp on it.

Nope, they’re pretty much flying blind.

And much like Pence, Daze isn’t really into sharing resources.

And he’s clueless about how to take a good vacation. Remember that NYC jaunt to Chili’s?

But perhaps their biggest common point is they’re disinterested in all the responsibilities that come with life outside an insular bubble.

But no big deal, this is just a man who might become second in command of the free world.

Gulp.
