"Oh no, pigeons!"

Last night I found myself in a dark hole of depression after reading that the West Baptoro Church will be protesting Constance's graduation. I can't help like feel that she has been through so much in the past few months, and I'm afraid that this will be the moment that she finally breaks. I mean, I'm not even her and I feel like I broke.

So, to cheer myself up, I decided to write a post about my favorite web comic: Pictures for Sad Children! Yes! The comic that I've posted about a million of on my facebook wall! You get to read about it! Again!

It doesn't sound happy, I know. But in a way, that's kind of why it's funny. People in this universe never react the way you're expecting them too:

It's that stark contrast between what seems "normal" and what's actually going on that's so confusing you can't help but laugh.

I'm also relatively convinced that this guy actually has my brain.

This is how I feel about physics:

And this is how I feel about the stock market, and this is how I react every time I see an internet meme.

The art is minimalistic (and that's being nice) and the comics are often grotesque. You'll never make sense out of them, even if you try. Those all sound like things that add up to a bad comic, but not the way John Campbell does it. No, he gets me.

My one complaint is that the merchandise doesn't adequately summarize the hilarity of this comic. I mean, it's funny in context, so if you understand the "Oh no, pigeons" reference, you'll laugh. Otherwise it's just weird.

Or maybe I'm just weird, and even if you do get the reference you still won't laugh.

I'm not sure, but I know that this comic is funny. If you're weird like me, you'll think this comic is funny too.

Side note: You don't understand how much restraint it took for me to not post every single comic I saw. hdfakjdslf.


  1. The financial sector is overrated! Ever since I learned that picking random stocks gets you a better return than using some sort of fund manager I can't take the market seriously.

  2. lololol. that's good to know, because if I ever participated, that's what I would do.

  3. Thanks a lot I can't get any work done until I've read every one of these :)
