Maybe I've lost my sense of humor, but Family Circus is funnier than that.

I'd call him a mildly amusing cartoonist at best. The almond joy joke is great in a corny sorta way, though.

No offense, but Mark Trail is funnier than that

I liked them.
I liked the bug jar one, at first I just clicked through it, then I realized it was like my life.
It's funny because it's true. And that's sad.
Sad because it's true.
Funny and sad together=profound.
At least that's what they told us in high school.

If you thought family circus was funny...then you never had a sense of humour to lose..

I laughed. And I almost never laugh at web cartoons.

srboisvert, there is an egregious spelling error in your post. Perhaps you forgot to spellcheck?

Hahahaha! Extremely mildly amusing cartoons based on misinterpretations of everyday phrases and/or animals in anthropomorphic situations! One-joke, pun-based humour without punchlines! Hi-larious! Big laffs all around! Totally worth the hype!

(P.S. In case you can't tell, I was being sarcastic.)

I don't know, I wouldn't call it "funny" exactly. Interesting, yes. I like this one.

I apologize for inadvertently signaling my smug sense superiority with my blatent use of a 'u' eh.

I liked his drawing style so much I really wanted to find his stuff much funnier. Having said that, there was some good ones there.

I think some people around here might dig this one.
