Hyperbole and a Half: The Alot is Better Than You at Everything
"The Alot is an imaginary creature that I made up to help me deal with my compulsive need to correct other people's grammar.  It kind of looks like a cross between a bear, a yak and a pug, and it has provided hours of entertainment for me in a situation where I'd normally be left feeling angry and disillusioned with the world." Lovely. I would like an alot of my own one day.

xkcd - Spirit
"Maybe if I do a good enough job, they'll let me come home." Jesus, this is not far from making me tear up. I really need to do something about my sympathy-for-small-robots thing.

The Singles Club (preview) - Phonogram
"The time comes again. Here’s the first five pages from the first issues of PHONOGRAM: THE SINGLES CLUB. Not only that, but we include seven sample B-side pages, plus a little introduction about what they’re all about, like." Looking jolly good, and am rather excited by the B-sides.

xkcd - A Webcomic - Height
I don't normally link to XKCD, simply because it would become repetitive... but "Height" is really lovely.

Running for Office: It's Like A Flamewar with a Forum Troll, but with an Eventual Winner
"My name is Sean Tevis [photo]. I'm an Information Architect in Kansas running for State Representative. I’ve decided to “retire” my current State Representative. I'm going to win." Bold. He might just Howard Dean on us, but he deserves $9.

What it says on the tin. Delightful. "You’re a piece of work, Charlie Branaski... you try to fly your kite, you play baseball, you drink all night and you’re lousy at all of it."
