These comics are glorious, the best of them have the self-contained perfection of an early Kinks song or Donald Barthelme short story.

Pure hilarity for the hell-bound. Let me just put it this way: The panel about little kids playing 'bortion is one of the least offensive ones here.

extremely un-PC and entirely in bad taste but pretty funny for one read-through. the jokes don't really hold up to re-reading.
