While you're fixing issues with your site, you should let amazon know that their headers are bad for anything coming from this url:

"The Server did not return properly formatted HTTP Headers. HTTP headers
should be terminated with CRLFCRLF. These were terminated with LFLF."

Here's a factoid: the word 'factoid' means a piece of random trivia.

Oddly, I read that name as 'Telstra' the Australian government owned telecommunications company (at this stage). Made perfect sense.

Someone slap me...hard. That last panel had me beginning to feel sorry for the boss. So much emotion in one little drawing...

"That’s not his wife, yo! How long have you been reading this “comic strip”!?"

Maybe Scott should put up a page of the "cast list" so people can play the home version of Who's The Lesbian.

The sad thing is that I've used every single one of those penis factoids in conversation. My girlfriend is even worse; she's studying animal behavior and will tell you all about how to arouse field mice to determine their sex. I don't see what's wrong with that.

“A factoid is a spurious — unverified, incorrect, or fabricated — statement formed and asserted as a fact, but with no veracity.”


also, cat penes are about the size of a grain of cooked rice. which is probably why they're barbed. not to mention being another reason female cats are angry during sex.

Ahoy, ahoy!
Ding-dong, Avon calling!

Probably explains why catwoman was so pissed.

But that would, by the same logic, make the plural of "moose" become "meese", as "goose"x2="geese".

Of course, I've been using that forever, but...

The book already exists. It's called "Penises of the Animal Kingdom," and yes, it's a pop-up book. The guy who wrote it won the Ig Nobel.

It's too bad his book didn't get published. I would have used it as a visual aid to teach my daughter about sex. Let's see if she wants any after that. HA!

Sadly, I already knew all of those penis factoids.

Also, duck penises are really long and spirally.

Here's a grammar (spelling? linguistic? English?) factoid: You can say "penises," and it is grammatically (spellingly? linguistically? Englishly?) correct.

Wish I'd seen this sooner. My mind immediately jumped to this book:
Dr Tatiana's Sex Advice to All Creation

Fun factoid: Bell also said “Mr. Watson, come here, I want you,” which sounds more penis-related than it is.
