I don't see the "not nice" part. I thought it was quite amusing, and
truthful. I didn't see it as a knock on technical writers at all.
Every recent grad in a general field of study I've known had
absolutely no clue what to do for a living nor thought about it all
that much. ;-)
Really, I can't believe you'd take a comic strip seriously, anyway.
More humorous still... when you *do* take it seriously, it just feeds
the humor in the comic! Like throwing gas on a fire! ROFL!!!
