I thought about posting this. He also posts great music, and his Pictures for Sad Children is also good.

The first couple were mildly amusing but then it just stopped making any sense. I made it halfway down...

I loved the explanation for "Why don't famous people ever answer my letters?"

It makes me feel a lot better.

Thanks for the tip on this guy's LJ. Bookmarked.

Kinda reminds me of "Jim's Journal". I like it! Thanks for posting.

Loved it, the whole thing. Hope he turns it into a regular thing.

These are actually pretty good. I like the post-cowboys: "Yeehaw, I guess." "What does that even mean?"

Those were terrific! I particularly loved these two.

It took awhile, but the cowboys one got to me, and now it's fridge-bound.

I like the one entitled "Why has my mother never told me that she loves me?"
posted by parallax7d at 5:02 PM on December 8, 2007


This was pretty good. The non sequitur humor reminds me a little of the Perry Bible Fellowship comic.

Not like MeFi. Fails to ask "Can I have a pony?"
posted by DarlingBri at 6:21 PM on December 8, 2007


Yes! The cowboys made reading up to that point worthwhile.

I love stereotypist... don't miss the epic Stevie Might Be A Bear Maybe.

Pretty amusing, and sometimes understated. In this day and age, I really appreciate that.

Awesome. What UseyurBrain said. Thanks.

reminds me of exploding dog, but a bit less esoteric, if that was possible.
posted by MiltonRandKalman at 8:30 PM on December 8, 2007


And a helluva lot funnier than American Elf!

This one (not part of the 50 Answers) made me LOL... since there's someone I know at work that, well... just read the comic....

This one made me laugh so hard I had to put my head down on my desk for a while.

Thanks, Rock Steady. This guy is brilliant.

Oh man, I too hate the guy with the superpower of posting things before everybody else. CURSE HIM.

(Not that I was going to post this comic as I have the superpower of being a day late to all the fun parties.)

Fair enough. (Although I'm unsure as to whether it's directed at me.) I like the dry, anti-punchline-yet-quirky, uber-simply-drawn comic. I like Patches, Graham Annable's Grickle, the aforementioned PBF, and a few others. I just didn't feel the reader-author connection in this one. I felt it showed promise, but I quickly got bored. Thinking, "maybe it's just this particular comic," I am now looking at his other stuff, and I particularly like this one. Much better than 50 Answers.

If AskMe was in comic form, I'd probably read more of the entries. If all the answers were from one person, I'd never read it at all.

No, I wasn't snarking at you. I thought AskMeFi would look like that comic without the no(t only) wisecracks rule.

Sweet. My reputation is clean! On with the thread, then.
