No real post to speak of today, since I'll be one of the multitude watching Stupor Bowl XLVI and rooting for the Patriots to kick some Giant ass.
However, since I won't be watching the pre-pre-pre-pre or pre-pre-pre or pre-pre or pre game show, I'll be needing something to occupy my time.
In other words, writing.
Since I'll be attempting to do some writing and thus being sporadically available for blogging, I thought I would leave you a top eight list of my favorite non-pushing-up-the-daises comic strips that give me a chuckle a day.
1} Rhymes With Orange by Hillary Price. Best semi-cerebral comic out there today.
2} Funky Winkerbean by Tom Batiuk. Been a fan of his since I was teenager and the updated story lines, I believe, is far better than the original story lines that took place in high school.
3} Get Fuzzy by Darby Conley. Absolutely love this strip as the humor is absolutely wicked.
4} Close to Home by John McPherson. Fantastic one panel comic.
5} Mutts by Patrick McDonnell. If you like comics about animals, this one is for you.
6} Pearls Before Swine by Stephen Pastis. This strip, I believe, is a worthy successor to Calvin & Hobbes. The humor is absolutely brutal, spot on and pulls absolutely no punches.
7} Zits by Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman. I often call this strip a clone of my household, simply because I look like the father (minus the mustache), my wife looks the mother and my son's name is Jeremy.
8} Mother Goose and Grimm by Mike Peters. Warped, just like me.
