Got Fried

Fried Society is not a new comic strip, nor has it been updated in quite a long time. But it remains the most insightful use of the medium I've ever seen.

I found this entry about fundies from his blog interesting.

Good, but very Lynda Barry. Not that that's bad, but you'd think there were more different ways to draw badly.

For what I consider more comedic political posts, there's always This Modern World" and Non Sequitur

I'm almost sure I came across this comic through metafilter, although it must have been in a comment...
aha - in this thread - a comment right after I commented, even.

Funny that it never made it to the front page before. I read every single entry when I first was introduced to it, and felt that so many were extremely apt. I'm surprised now that the quality of the art is so lacking - I didn't remember that at all.

For much of my time at a liberal arts college, I had The Liberal Arts League posted on my door.

But then, I was a physics major.

mdn--

Yeah, that's why I keep remembering Fried Society...it keeps making itself relevant in ways nothing else does (jmd82, it's quite apolitical).

I can usually never understand what people are raving about when they tell me to go check out some unfunny comic strip... but I really liked that one. Thanks for posting it.
