Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2001 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

I may have actually broken some unimportant anatomical item whilst laughing with Leonard over the oeuvre of Paul Conrad, the man who takes the editorial cartooning genre to new extra-dimensional extremes. Kris introduced us to Conrad's bizarre style and commented on it better than I probably could. I found some of them (example and another) like a mental Magic Eye, but probably Mr. Conrad doesn't intend for them to be as such.

Note that the ultimate Paul Conrad cartoon is a cloud of cloned anthrax bacteria spelling out "I [heart] NY."

Osama bin Muppet (credit Leonard for witticism).

What a cute elephant!

I think I understand now why people appreciate Pokey the Penguin.
