It wasn't funny just because you didn't get it...

Joe Mathlete Explains Today's Marmaduke

There are a lot of the old, traditional comics that are still printed in the paper, even though they stopped being funny decades ago (if they were ever funny in the first place), such as Peanuts, Family Circus, Nancy... well, almost all the comics, actually. How often do you actually LOL at the funnies page?

Marmaduke, a comic about a big Great Dane, is one of the worst of those terribly unfunny, outdated cartoons that continues to run every day in the paper, because no one has put it out of its misery.

But maybe we've got it all terribly wrong.

Maybe Marmaduke is really, really funny; we just needed Joe Mathlete to explain the comic for us in his blog with his very dry wit and his (not suitable for children) colourful language. The explanations often get me LOL at Marmaduke.
