It would be a lot funnier if the artist stopped using the same pictures over and over.  :-\

That's sort of the point.  The "artist" has used the same picture for 6 years now and has been able to come up with some pretty hilarious comics (in my opinion).  Here's one of my favorites (although some of the language is not safe for work): http://www.qwantz.com/archive/000244.html

meh - don't see how you can look at the same comic over and over and still think it's funny.

Someone hasn't Gotten Their War On yet!
I expect to pass through this world but once;
any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now;
let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

Actually I found that rather amusing.
It must be all in the writing. *shrug*

That's the point. When you read a funny story you don't think "Man, it's really boring that they use the same font the whole time, I don't understand how people can stand it."

The point of presenting it in comic form is that it actually gets people's attention, you can have characters, and the story can be nothing but dialogue.

Stop being such a curmudgeon, SQ!  ;)
For the life of me, I cannot figure out how a man can love a woman when a woman is just a screaming clear area with a wig on and a large middle where the smells come from.

Toast IS the ultimate breakfast-time treat!  That's not relative, that's just pure objective fact!

Every year is getting shorter...never seem to find the time.
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.  :-\

Yeah yeah, and the creationists are right about the age of the planet!  ::)

My friend, the ultimacy of toast in the breakfast food arena is indisputable!  The scientific evidence is overwhelming!

You run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way but your older
Shorter of breath
one day closer to death....
