Wherein I admit I like a webcomic

First, I suppose I should admit that I loathe most webcomics. Cat and Girl being the notable exception. Most of them have twisted senses of humor I don't get, are drawn... subpar or are about geeky in-jokes I have long since ceased caring about. That is not to cast aspersions on those of you who like or create webcomics, just it has been repeatedly proven that it is not my thing.

But this past week a webcomic has come to my attention for awesome entries twice!! Almost in a row!! So if there is an LJ feed for xkcd, someone let me know, because I will subscribe.

Seriously people, don't tell me how funny the Perry Bible Fellowship is again. Funny is subjective. In SnideLand, that is not funny.

...

Nope, I checked again. Still not funny.

I am surprised that you like xkcd if geeky in-jokes aren't your thing. Then again, I find the xkcd math/crypto jokes most informative and potentially helpful in future geeky conversations. So ... yes I have no point.

So far as I have seen, the geeky in-jokes on xkcd are not ubiquitous or genre-specific or deeply geeky, and math I just consider acceptable source material, for some reason. Thank you!

"Three hours of fascinated clicking"

HA! It's funny because it's true. Why, just today on Wikipedia I learned the differences between various kinds of soy sauce, which led me to fish sauce, and to Thai tea. AND BEYOND.

that is my favorite one of all time. I got totally teary eyed when first saw it. =)

I won't push any webcomics on you, but I must admit that PBF does nothing for me either, and I just got to be a fan of xkcd myself!

I am so glad I am not alone on the PBF thing. SO GLAD!

While I am not defending your choice not to like webcomics, as your friend I have to tell you that some of your most positive traits are also embodied by T-Rex.

Every once in a while someone shows me a dinosaur comic that I do appreciate. It's true.

:D

yes, yes, yes! whoever writes that stuff rocks. be sure to mouseover the image because sometimes the alt tags are very clever, too.

Ooh, excellent. Something to add to my tiny list of 'webcomics I actually read.'

Just like always with Achewood, I don't get what's so funny!! I am ever so slightly less hostile about that one than I am about PBF.

I second Katie. It's funny because I just got a heads up about xkcd - via the velociraptor preparedness page, http://www.velociraptors.info/ - just the other day.

I approve! And I only approve of two webcomics now. Dinosaur comics and xkcd.
