from the Daily Nebraskan
The Burger King in the Nebraska Union was basically my office for three years, being upstairs from the Daily Nebraskan offices. It was where I developed the habit of needing fast food in order to come up with cartoon ideas. I have many fond memories of that place, having shared many wonderful meals with wonderful people.
I was there when BK distributed Backstreet Boys CDs in 1999. I ate there after aerobic swimming each morning in 1997. I saw the coming and going of the French Chicken Sandwich, one of the three International Chicken Sandwiches. I witnessed the arrival and departure of the Sourdough Bacon Cheeseburger from BKs of Lincoln. I was there when one of the north windows was broken, forcing the Union to replace all of them, as each window had a matching pattern painted on it.
The Daily Nebraskan ran this farewell cartoon today, and to properly honor the end of this era, I busted out the markers and did this cartoon old school DN style.
