Middle school book reports will never be the same.

Yesterday, Microsoft announced they're getting rid of Clip Art in favor of Bing image search. Apparently, nobody used Clip Art -- not even hipsters being ironic -- so it was time to say goodbye.

Gizmodo's Mario Aguilar put it best: "Farewell Clip Art. We didn't know we missed you until you were gone." As a hat tip to a youth spent trolling the Clip Art image library for just the right image to adorn the upper left-and right-hand corners of my student council nomination flyers, I've compiled some of my favorite ClipArt images, with their accompanying search terms.
