This is one of my favorites. I'm pretty sure years of television and bad movies did the set up for me.

Am I missing something on this one?

I figure there are some games at the colosseum, guy raises the kid up to catch the ball, and the guy is beheaded?

Waitaminute, I think they're catching the head.

Well, the bad news is I'm almost done with the pbf archives, this is the penultimate instalment. The good news is I've only posted a fraction of them(well ok a large-ish fraction), so you should check the actual website if you wanna see them all.

Anyway:

Ahhh, neanderthal chivalry. Still effective even today. Even though it is frowned upon.

And in case you were thinking: "God damn, these comics are pretty good, but just way too practically sized". Here's a subnormality:

Hahaha. Those were great. I liked your comment, but I just don't have the patience for that comic :P

Here are some comics from The Oatmeal by Matthew Inman. A lot of his comics are broken down into multiple images, but here are a few single-image files.

For some reason, as I was scrolling, I was expecting some caterpillar joke - cat on a pillar.

I don't even know where that came from.

Also, has anyone been following this: http://www.xkcd.com/1190/? (it's a gif, but he's releasing a new frame every 30 minutes. It's been going on for several days now, for all frames released so far, see: http://xkcd.aubronwood.com/ )

It's an interesting experiment. The people on the forum thread following that thing have pretty much developed a new subculture by now. Seriously, they have made up words and everything. I feel like there should be an anthropological study about this thing.
