A technical note: the website listed above is for J.'s boyfriend Gareth Brookes, as that seems to be the only place where you can get this comic at the moment.  I hate to have that as the only link due to the generally transitive nature of relationships (not that I'm cynical about that subject or anything), but what are you going to do?   This is a collection of one panel gag comics, unique in that most of these are actually funny.  The sampled image will, as always, tell you a lot about the book.  Is that funny to you?  No?  OK, read it again and think about it for a minute.  Is it funny now?  Have you tried reading it aloud?   If none of that worked, it's probably best to move on.  If you smiled slightly or chuckled, you're going to love this.   Most of the jokes here are homophones, which means I learned something today, as I thought they were all homonyms.  Well, according to Wikipedia anyway, but they do seem to have a lot of brightly colored charts, which must mean they're correct.  You also have images of spoons spooning, donuts at a gunfight, hot potatoes, and I really have to stop myself there.  What's the point of my ruining all the fun by blandly describing jokes?  The only thing you need to know is that there's a pretty decent pile of funny in this comic, and it's worth checking out.  While you're at it you should also get a pile of Gareth's books and have a marathon of funny.  No price, but let's say $3.
