Comic That Made Me Laugh Out Loud: July

Seriously, if it happens once a month, that’s a lot. The last time was in May, a Beevnicks strip. I decided to e-mail Owen Dunne and mention it, and he responded by saying Well, that’s my ultimate goal in life, to make Bill Bickel laugh.

He meant that in a nice way, I’m sure.

So I’m wondering… How often do the comics make you audibly chuckle? And feel free to send me the comic in question.


  1. A real LOL? about once a month. Plenty of grins, but rarely a guffaw.

    Trying to find the last comic that did.

  2. The Lockhorns, just about every sunday. Dilbert will sometimes do this also, thou most of the time this strip usually provides a slight grin. Dilbert is mostly dry, witty, office humor at it’s best.

  3. Our family likes the new Lio kid. My baby sister doesn’t normally read the comics (gasp!), but I give her Lio almost every day to read, and while she doesn’t laugh, she does… I guess whimper at the grotesquesness.

    The whole family had different reactions to the “Cookie Witch” selling Girl Scout cookies door to door (made with “real” Girl Scouts naturally)

  4. For me, every tenth or twentieth strip when Bucky Katt does something wacky… and you look closer and notice the word-play… I like that.

  5. Once or twice a week, typically.
    Here’s the latest:

  7. Todays Get Fuzzy did it for me for the first time in a while. Last panel – blueberry what?

  8. Ahhhh, I’ve become a Pearls Before Swine devotee. Here’s yesterday’s:

    They have 30 days archived for free, so, go ahead, take the plunge.

  9. Being a wife and the mother of a pre-teen boy, the Argyle Sweater from July 10th made me laugh so hard I literally wept.

  10. Today’s F Minus.

  11. I get a 404 Not Found for the July 18th F Minus.

  12. Today’s Blondie made me laugh. Dagwood claimed the cleaners shrunk his pants, but Blondie points out they’re actually her capris.

  13. Lio, Get Fuzzy and Pearls Before Swine consistently make me laugh (at least once a week for each). Red Meat is also laugh-worthy.

  14. Oh, and the July 28 Achewood.

    Funny in two ways – LOLCATs and the idea that Harlequin would give a $25,000 advance. $250, maybe.

  15. The movie “Open Season” is the first (ok, it’s a movie, but a cartoon one) in a long time to actually make me fall off the couch in sheer hysteria. The river run scene was the funniest thing I’ve seen in years. Heck, my wife had never seen me laugh that hard…
