Nature-inspired Comics?

Yes! Saw this one this morning too. And let’s add the ‘chaser’ he (Zach Weinersmith) usually adds to his stuff (the Red Button panel):

I love SMBC. The Weinersmiths (he works with his wife) also put out terrific books. Not your typical comic subjects at all, and also super informative and well-researched. A real treasure these guys, for all of us (including the non-grad student crowd!).

If we’re adding the red button panel, let’s also add the hovertext – "We are assuming for the sake of argument that all bits of human are equivalent, which is basically correct." :joy:

I’m opposed to these unrealistic beauty standards about red and tumescent anogenital regions, I agree

Calvin and Hobbes is full of some great ones. I also really enjoy Chats from the Void (https://www.instagram.com/chatsvoid/), these are just a few of my favorites.

I can’t imagine the audience for taxonomy jokes is very large, but SMBC is going for it

I saw this New Yorker cartoon and, of course, interpreted it in the exact opposite way from the way it was intended.

These are fantastic, thanks for sharing!

(I laughed so hard at your captcha one: “Mark all squares with Lasioglossum”…well, no danger of a bot being able to figure that out any time soon, if the performance of iNat’s computer vision is any indication)
