It’s Good Friday, and we’ll celebrate with two things. First, a recycled Jesus and Mo: And a still from the Simpsons (note the time):

Why, oh why, did Gary Larson stop doing cartoons? He was terrifically funny and creative, much beloved by biologists, and all of us had at least one Larson cartoon on our office door. Nobody has replaced him, and our doors are bereft. Since a day without cats is like a day without sunshine, I offer […]
Reader Aidan Karley called my attention to the Irish comedian Dave Allen (1936-2005; real name David Tynan O’Mahoney). He seems to be a forerunner of Dara O’Briain, sans the profanity.
