When your house is burning down, you should brush your teeth

A story of tabbies, tragedy, and thankfulness by The Oatmeal.

It was a terrible thing and I’ve found the best way to deal with terrible things is to tell funny stories about them later.

How Cuba’s Greatest Cartoonist Fled From Castro and Created ‘Spy vs. Spy’

I’ve always been a fan of Spy vs. Spy, the Cold War era wordless comic about two opposing agents trying to foil and/or kill each other. The slapstick, the subtle satire, and–of course–the abstract character design. I never knew the creator was actually a Cuban political refugee accused of espionage himself!

One day a Cuban illustrator walked unannounced into the MAD Magazine offices, and the rest is history.

xkcd: Horses

This is actually a pretty interesting proposal. It would, at least, make it easier to compare and contrast different models. Right?

Summer of 100 Photos, Day 80: Your favorite childhood film

1ed93aef2ddddb1662e2c58d73906006People consider this to be one of the worst films ever made, but I don’t care; I unironically love this film in all of its cheesy glory! Robert Altman did such a superb job with casting and directing Jules Feiffer’s admittedly silly screenplay, that it plays out exactly like the old Popeye cartoons! The music is catchy, charming, and lovable and only adds to the ambiance of this quirky little world (that still exists as a theme park in Malta, by the way!)

In a world before gritty reboots of lighthearted properties, Popeye stands out as being the adaptation truest to its source material.
