I told myself this blog would not just be made up of snippets of other people’s work co-opted and written into mine. So I’m very appalled at myself for what I’m about to do - namely: stick someone’s web comic into a post and call it a night.

But damn if this one isn’t really funny. More than that it’s a comic about a future that I feel is really possible and it scares me to death.

Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal comic

I’ve only just discovered Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal (RSS), but it’s hit-rate is high and I find myself laughing loudly to more than every second one.

It reminds me a little of The Perry Bible Fellowship (RSS), and both of them are kind of crueller, surreal-er versions of The Far Side - what you might get if Garry Larson had regularly maimed his characters or left them devastatingly emotionally scarred.

If you find any of these comics amusing, you might try some of the others I enjoy (click on RSS to immediately subscribe if you trust my taste):
Ctrl-Alt-Del (RSS) - the lives and loves of gamers and their robot.
Dilbert (RSS) - life in a cubicle.
Dr. McNinja (Unofficial RSS) - He’s a Doctor, who’s also a ninja. And he wants to be Batman (but who doesn’t?)
Joy of Tech (RSS) - geek comic.
Wondermark (RSS) - old Victorian era drawings given new life.
xkcd (RSS) - probably the cleverest comic on the web. It’s about romance, joy, maths and velociraptors.
