- •The Adventures of Business Cat. Www.gocomics.com/the-adventures-of-business-cat. A human-sized cat who walks on 2 legs and wears a business suit and works for a company. But of course does cat stuff. Chuckle level, not belly laugh.
- •The Argyle Sweater. This is a one panel that is an interesting combination of smart and amusing. Not always super funny, but sometimes absolutely hilarious
- •Bad Reporter. This strip has fake satirical newspaper headlines. Tagline: "The lies behind the truth, and the truth behind the lies behind the truth" Very political and very funny.
- •Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal. Very science funny, a la Far Side. Some about relationships
- •The Bent Pinky. A one panel, like The Argyle Sweater. A lot are about dogs and other animals. Some belly laugh funny.
