Felid break: Ten Cats tackles the offense culture

I don’t look at Graham Harrop’s “Ten Cats” comic strip nearly as often as I should, as its premise is cool and the results funny: Ten abandoned cats live in an old warehouse where they are looked after by a young girl named Annie. Unbeknownst to her, the warehouse contains a boardroom on the very […]

Matthew Inman: a very short documentary

If, like me, you love The Oatmeal comics created by Matthew Inman, you’ll want to see this three-minute documentary of his life, “My life in 171 seconds,” described on the Oatmeal page this way: “Saucony made a mini-documentary about my cartooning, eating, and running habits. This was shot in my house in Seattle, Washington over a […]

SMBC Kickstarter raises money for religion-themed comic compilation, features “Speciation”

Zach Weinersmith of Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal is raising money on Kickstarter to finance a collection of his religion-themed comic strips. The project is “Religion: Ruining Everything since 4004 BC.” A bit of information: What’s in the Book? The book is a collection of the best religion jokes on SMBC over the last ten years! […]

Wednesday funnies

Too true! And it’s from Non Sequitur by Wiley Miller, courtesy of reader Linda Grilli:  

The disutility of utilitarianism

From Zach Weinersmith’s strip SMBC, via Matthew Cobb: Matthew is of course a Brit, and his email of this link to me was headed “Ouch!” But of course one problem with this argument is that by voicing your own views on morality, you might improve society. That, after all, is the reason why civil rights, […]

Comics and convergent evolution in trees

Here’s a recent xkcd strip called “Magic tree”, which has an evolutionary twist: When you “mouse over” the strip, you see this: In other words, artist Randall Munroe is giving a humorous example of “convergent evolution,” in which those trees that most closely resemble cellphone towers are those that leave their genes. This form of evolution […]

The cartoon that has it all

As reader Ben Goren said when sending me this Non Sequitur strip by Wiley Miller, it has it all: evolution, faith, and cats!   But it also shows one of Americans’ most common misconceptions about evolution: that what evolves are individuals over their lifetimes, not populations over long periods of time. This is a common misunderstanding […]

God’s plan revealed at last

. . . and in a comic strip of all places! God has chosen to reveal His long-enigmatic plan in the latest edition of Pie Comic, by John McNamee.  And it makes about as much sense as we thought all along. Isn’t it great to see comics (even though they’re not in the daily papers) be […]

Jesus @ #wrongskin

Even when I was a kid I wondered why Jesus was always depicted as if he were from Scandinavia or Germany. From Don Asmussen’s comic Bad Reporter: h/t: jsp

Monday humor: Felidae

Shall we start off the week with some felid humor? Yes, why not. First, a tw**t about the World’s Worst Idea: And here’s yesterday’s Get Fuzzy, featuring Bucky, a cat who is a complete, self-centered jerk (and of course in that way represents all cats). Bucky’s staff consists of Rob, the human, and the long-suffering […]
