Swingsets are keen.

It's funny because it's true!

It's obviously the Blank Label Comics Podcast theme song.

It's like "The Daily Show" for webcomics!

I think the most brilliant bit was the personification of Keenspot as a person wearing a Keenspot t-shirt.

Satire, thy name is Straub.

Is it wrong that I'm spending so much mental energy trying to figure out what tune Chris Crosby could be whistling.

No one understands the forbidden passions of dictionaries.

Sadly, the marriage has become loveless. I'm nailing a thesaurus on the side.

Swingsets are keen.

While I find the Modern Tales news interesting, and I think it's a great team-up, I think the news that we'll be getting more great cartoons like these is much more exciting. Great work!

I once got freaky with Mad Libs, it was pretty unsatisfying. Instead of screaming my name it just kept asking for a proper noun.

Seriously though, this is pretty mind-blowing, ain't it? Good things, I hope.

You've invented a new webcomic category, Kris! Checkerboard Nightmare is now the first-ever immediate response topical webcomic!

My guess would have been "we're having a heat wave, a tropical heat wave!"

UGH... this comic is fucking

UGH... this comic is fucking tired and old. No it's not. I enjoyed that thoroughly. Way to be topical Kris!

This satire isn't niche enough. When are we gonna see a comic parodying comics that parody comics?
