The cartoon caption says, "Warning... Your Child May Be At Risk!" The first panel asks the question, "Does your child show little or no interest in his or her education?" Mom asks the kid what's his favorite class this semester. Kid replies that, "Well, Bob and Joey are in my first period class, so that's pretty cool." The second panel asks the question, "Does your child feel depressed or moody?" and we see a drawing of a girl with a black cloud following her. The third panel asks, "Does your child cut classes just to hang out with his or her friends?" The three students illustrated say to one another, "Dude!" The fourth panel say, "Then your child may be COMPLETELY NORMAL." A parent steps forward to admit, "That's right! I didn't take full advantage of my academic opportunities when I was a teenager either! Hmmmm. Fascinating!"
