Amazing Web Pages

We used to have some links for really useless web pages. Most of those links died over time. Well, now we have help: The Useless Web.

Web Page Design

We considered using BudUglyDesign for our web pages. For a while. Maybe if we used them, our site might look like The Worlds Worst Website Ever.


[Dilbert!] Here is Dilbert's Home Page

Also, here's an official Dilbert icon that does the same thing, but you may want to use it, since its the official way and not the way that I've been using for the last few years to help you to get to your favorite Dilbert cartoons. This is not a mandate from management, or anything like that of course. It's completely voluntary. But we'll be counting hits, and recording your machine name, and sending a report to The Dilbert Compliance Committee. Go ahead and access Dilbert any way your want. Using the official icon is not required at all, certainly not. We fully embrace diversity of Dilbert access in this organization. Yes siree.

Dr. Fun!

Great Cartoons! (Sadly Gone, but the archives are still there to enjoy.)

Screwball Comics

I grew up reading Smokey Stover in the Sunday comics. Besides lots of "foo", a famous catchphrase from Smokey was "notary sojac".

This brings up a whole world of screwball, slightly-outside-reality, comic strips. These folks inspired such icons as Mad Magazine, R. Crumb, and many later strips up to today.

Anyone remember "nov shmoz kapop"?

More About Smokey Stover

Here is a website (Konkykru) that displays cartoons from the early days of printing and newspapers. Some of these artists were pretty screwball, too.

Bill Tidy

My absolutely favorite cartoonist. Here is some information about Bill Tidy. I was a "student" subscriber to Punch in the 1960's and immediately fell for Bill's sense of humor. His autobiography is out of print, but look on eBay for used copies. It is a wonderful story.

I've keep a few paper copies of the magazine, just for these cartoons:

One of Many Bill Tidy: Titanic Cartoons, and Bill Tidy: Morris Dancers, and my personal favorite Bill Tidy cartoon.

(Not a Bill Tidy cartoon, but a classic Punch magazine item: Hippies vs Police).

Then there is Tidy's magnum opus: The Fosdyke Saga.
