The new "Tickle Me Elmo" doll, which is actually called the "Elmo TMX." Cyberdyne's latest model, as seen here, laughs, falls over, and then gets back up on its own.

I just crapped my pants. You give these to children?

Alllllllrighty then...

George Allen wants to make it clear to everyone that he enjoys him a good ham sandwich.

I think it's time for the press to start asking openly if George Allen is, in fact, the stupidest person alive. His breath must smell like Tinactin at this point.

War Preznit


From the beginning, America has sought international support for our operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, and we have gained much support. There is a difference, however, between leading a coalition of many nations, and submitting to the objections of a few. America will never seek a permission slip to defend the security of our country.

-George W. Bush, January 20, 2004

First of all, Pakistan is a sovereign nation. In order for us to send thousands of troops into a sovereign nation, we've got to be invited by the government of Pakistan.

Said a Vatican spokesman, "we'll think about it"

Yeah, so I'm guessing this one's going to be a hard sell.

Latest Comic!

"Thinking not too different"

Well, there's certainly been a lot of talk in the last few weeks about appeasing Hitler, and terrorists being worse than Hitler, and how you love Hitler if you don't want to torture people, and so on. So I guess it was inevitable for you-know-who to show up. Apologies, of course, to John Hodgman and the other guy. As if, you know, there's even a chance they'd actually read this.

Speaking of no one reading this, a word about those of you who do: it would really be great if there were more of you. I make the weekly pitch to buy some crap, but honestly that's just sort of a bonus to having you all read the comic. If you want to help spread the love that is this obscure little strip, take a moment to reach out to the editor of your local alternative newsweekly, and let then know how much you love the strip and how it would be awesome if it appeared in their paper.
