When you look annoyed all the time people think you're busy.

Professional Liars

I laughed at this quite heartily b/c it’s so, so true. Don’t know if it will strike the same chord with all the loyal, good-looking readers of this blog, but c’est la vie. If you work in a large organization/corporation you’ll get it and laugh.

Pardon the piggyback but I don’t feel like creating a new post and I wanted to add one of my all-time favorite comic strips:

Another comic post

So it’s just about Sunday and since that’s traditionally when the funny pages are printed in full-blown technicolor, I figure that I’ll post about comics again.

In fact, this post is similar to the previous one: comics suck and a classic comic is much-improved if a key element is removed. Without further ado, check out some examples below of the greatness that is 3eanuts.

Take a Peanuts strip (something that sucks), remove the fourth panel (hence, “3eanuts”) and voila (much better). Enjoy…

The crises and madness of Jon Arbuckle

Garfield sucks and so does just about every comic you find in your newspaper. I don’t know why newspapers bother printing comics as I’m sure they’re not only expensive but also they suck. Just looking at one makes me pissed off.

In the United States, comics originally printed as a tactic in the Hearst v. Pulitzer newspaper wars. The immigrants who populated the big cities couldn’t read English but they could appreciate the comics and would read whichever newspaper had the best comics. Why they didn’t simply go online, open the local newspaper in Google Chrome and have the browser translate is beyond me.

Anyhoo, today we still have the comics in the paper taking up ink and paper which makes the existence of comics both foolhardy and wastedful. That said, if it wasn’t for shite comics like Garfield, we wouldn’t be graced with such genius as Garfield minus Garfield which actually improves upon the original.

The concept is to take a Garfield comic and remove the titular feline. It’s genius and see for yourself below.
