Preschool of the Prophets

In 1833, Joseph Smith organized the School of the Prophets in Kirtland, Ohio. The school met over the Newel K. Whitney store. It was the mess of the participants' chewing tobacco that led to Joseph Smith's inquiry into and reception of the Word of Wisdom.

Some 180 years later, I came up with the Preschool of the Prophets in my sketchpad. This resulted in today's gag which led to much eye-rolling.
