RIP: Hugo Rodriguez. More tragedy befalls America as groundbreaking web cartoonist Hugo Rodriguez died tragically on Saturday. His son Mookie says he lost his keys in Lake Erie and drowned. Can't America ever get a break? I guess that means my favorite weblog is over. Hugo was a true Patriot - always representing for the Canton, Ohio crew. At least we'll all have the day off.

I hope its a joke because

1) He would not be dead

2) I can criticize how horrible that webcomic is

This is a tragedy of monolithic proportion. I can't believe we've lost such a promising young talent. I plan to spend the day on the couch eating pints of ice cream in his honor (phish food was his favorite, I hear).

Hugo, we hardly knew ye. You will be missed.

Represent!
