Aww, n_o_d has a crush on Jessamyn West! I, on the other hand, have a crush on fistulation.

If you link to index.php?terms=whatever, we won't see the same comic you did; it will generate a new one. Use the tinyurl in the corner.

Never mind, it changes. The new ones aren't as funny as the one I saw.

Heh. I made about 40 or so mathowie ones. This minimalist strip may be my favorite of the bunch.

Fun toy.

Ok, I should have linked it like this.

This one was one of the rare gems that made a fully coherent gag by random chance.

Hmm.. The format is so close to A Softer World.. it really should nod in their direction in some way.

troubles, if you click on the big bold "ABOUT" tab directly below the comic you'll read:
The Infinite Monkey Comics random comic generator was semi-inspired by A Softer World, a web comic where two people take the time to put photos together with seemingly relevant text.

Whoops. i missed that, sorry. Now I can continue enjoying it without feeling guilty.

Neat, but I hope they plan on cleaning up the text captions and cooking up a better segregation.

Also, plugging it into bash.org would be neat. Or terrible. Probably terrible.

Let me just reiterate that this is the funniest (and genuinely sequential) comic that has or ever will come out of this generator!
