Aug. 26, 2007: CulturePulp job-shadows the army of teen volunteers at the Oregon Zoo.

Endnotes & Digressions:

1. Grey-tones for this installment by Chris Hanel.

2. My stepdaughter is a ZooTeen, and she originally suggested I do a “ZooTeen for a Day”-type comic where she would essentially make me do chores. Funny and sadistic! But then we got to the Zoo, and were confronted with the realities of liability and training and schedule and the simple fact that I’m 37 and it would look really odd.

Anyway: There is an alternate-universe version of this comic where I am shoveling poop and shearing sheep and whatnot. Let’s imagine it together.
