Come on, a little too professorial. The elbow patches are spot on, sure, but who lines up markers like that, and why would the guy who tries to simplify everything write so much sh*t on the board?

“Don’t blame me,” said Walt Jaschek. “I’m teaching radio advertising again at Webster University School of Communications during the Spring, 2018, semester, and a student at the end of class snapped at pic on my phone.”

At your own request?

“Well, sure,” Walt admitted. “I promote the class as a way for advertising majors to learn to strategize, write, produce, cast, direct and engineer a original, 3-spot radio campaign — — and I wanted to look the part.”

Walt’s slogan for the class, which is filled with mostly funny radio, old and new: “Laugh Your Ads Off.”

That might be better slogan than the one he had for his previous presentation to UMSL ad students about thinking big: “Let Loose the Large.”

Okay, “professor.” Just please don’t tell us you have a pipe in your pocket.

P.S. Hear funny radio commercials co-created by Walt.

That’s me, left, with two great, St. Louis comic friends and collaborators from Auld Lang Syne: Don Secrease, co-creator and artist of The Herobots™, Ned and the NudeMel Cool: Mall Cop™, and many more comics with me; and Sam Maronie, long-time comics and pop-culture journalist and author of Tripping Through Pop Culture. This was New Year’s Eve, 2015, at the home our mutual friend and ace comic creator, Paul Daly.  Ever been to Paul’s place? It’s like stepping into a movie set. Anyway, my point is: Happy New Year!
