Murphy's Law of Clutter by stevethepocket Murphy's Law of Clutter by stevethepocket
I could have sworn I already uploaded this here. Now that Podunk U is no more, I figured I'd archive this strip here because, well, look at all the work I put into drawing it! I think this is the single most crowded scene I've ever created. Wish I had thought to put a pizza box in there somewhere, though. The one piece of obvious dorm-room trash AND an opportunity for another Homestar Runner sight gag, and I forget to include it. Murphy strikes again, I guess.

Speaking of which, I suppose technically it should be "Puckett's Law of Clutter" since I came up with it, but Murphy's generally the go-to guy for formalized pessimism, so what the hey.

Mine tend to become a mixture of shelving and seating

I know about this all to well... and I'm always the one to clean it up after everyone... D:

ROFL: To add to the parody I would have phrased it: "If it is horizontal, it will become a shelf."

Needless to say, that's not too messy, my place is FINALLY less dirty than that comic, minus the bedroom, which is now down to equal.

Of course, it's the only time I've seen a realistic mess drawn, which is a feat in itself!

I'm not even in college yet, and I'm falling victim to this law. >_>

Great picture! I love how much detail there is. Made me laugh, too. Which I guess was the point. :XD:

So true... So very, very true.

It’s all too easy to fall for that “I’ll do it later” routine. I love the amount of detail you have put into this, good work. X3

My room looks a lot like this, except for my bed. XD And I'm not even in college!

IDK if I should be happy or not to mention that my current quarters are much much worse than that. I am hauling some major arse atm, since I have a final evaluation on Monday (Architecture, that is...).

The floor won't stay uncovered long at this rate. =P

I looked at this comic, then I looked around my dorm room, then I :iconfacepalmplz: (in a good way).

This law is too true. :D
