Total random post. Just 'cause.
Here are 3 strange, yet enjoyable, variations on yer basic funnies...
1. The Family Herman: This one's an old-school do-it-yourself that I remember from college. Resurrected in the blogosphere, earlier this year, by Scott Chicken
2. Marmaduke Explained: The name pretty much says it all.
3. Garfield Minus Garfield: Again, name says it all.
Cause for total randomness -
Washington Post article on the 3rd, which was just too odd to not share. Adding in the other 2 just seemed like the thing to do.
