Anyway, the first rule of comedy is that the Onion already did it, and better, no matter what.
Apparently some washington post blog is having a little old vote on which webcomic is best. I myself know better than to care about the results of this highly unscientific and meaningless poll, but still, if you want to vote for one, you might as well. XKCD was winning but now it's in a very, very distant 4th, so that's not so terrible. Most of the comics were things I had never heard of. My own opinion is that PBF is the best on that list (with Kate Beaton / Hark a Vagrant being awesome in a different way) so I am ok with the standings now.
In other news, am I the only one who hadn't seen the pilot for The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret? If you liked Arrested Development, you should at least take a look, given that Will Arnett and David Cross are in it. I think it shows promise, and the last big scene is a really good example of what I mean when I say chaos is funny. Come up with a well engineered chaos scene and I will likely laugh heartily. Of course, it's hard to pull that off in a static format like xkcd, because nothing actually moving makes it harder to convey the energy you need, but still. um, think about it?
