Bored with the state of lectures in Network Programming, taught by Professor Ingalls in spring of 2005, a number of students undertook the entertaining project of creating comic strips in a very special way. The idea is that one person draws one panel of the strip and passes the paper on to the next person. This introduces a lot of problems, such as consistency issues as people misinterpret previous panels and get distracted, so the whole thing tends to end up being more hilarious than it would have otherwise been if one person were to draw the entire strip.

This seems to be related to the idea of a tandem story, though for the people involved, the idea was born more out of Eat Poop You Cat.
