Web comics are cool. I sometimes pick up a newspaper and read the comic strips, and it's been like six years since I've even been tempted to smirk, let alone smile, let alone LOL. Web comics are the same way, in general, but there are so many, and you can pick and choose which ones to read. The odds of finding the funny are much higher. I didn't know about Frazz, but Penn mentioned it on Twitter (click the picture on the left to read the whole strip). I like this strip: it's skeptical (even metaskeptical, like this particular strip), and funny, and mentions a guy I know. Too bad there's no specific RSS feed for it; it's worthy of me losing another 20 seconds each day to it.
