It's going to be a while before Gail grows out of her "cute" stage, and I'd rather not limit the "Sunday Rant" to a singular topic. While I suppose featuring a weekly picture of her would be harmless, I would like to move on to other topics.
The trouble is, I can't really think of anything I want to talk about this week. I know what's on my mind, but I know better than to open my mouth on certain subjects... And no, it's not because I fear the PC police... OK, well maybe a little, but actually it is because when you make certain personal views public, that's when people pigeon hole you and say, "that's all this guy is about".
Ooo! Ooo! I know what I'd like to talk about: How come every other webcomic out there is mentioned on either Wikipedia or TV Tropes or some other quasi-authoritative medium, but PitP is totally off the radar? How is it that even bad webcomics with only 16 pages created by a 14 year old 7 years ago has third party acknowledgement, but a webcomic that has been active for nearly 16 years is still only vaguely known to exist by a handful of search engines, and then only after you type in some arcane phrase?
On second thought, I'd better not talk about this. I can already feel the pigeon hole closing in, and if anyone ever did review this site and/or comic, whatever they wrote would probably just annoy me.
I should just count obscurity as one of my blessings.
And speaking of obscure blessings, I want to thank ole George and Glenn for continuing to email me jokes. You know, a lot of these jokes are just FWD's that have been handed down from e-mail to e-mail over the years. You can help give these wandering jokes a new home here by copy/pasting the joke on our submission page. You could also forward your FWD's to email@example.com.

So what makes a joke funny?
It all boils down to a sudden shift in perception. The story starts you thinking one way, then the punchline turns that thinking on its ear. The art of the joke is to craft a short story that isn’t overly contrived, then deliver a punchline that suddenly shifts your perception about the story you were being told.
Many of the jokes on this site are offensive, and we make no apologies for it. Offensive jokes work by making the reader uncomfortable through the use of a taboo subject thus enhancing the underlying humor. Without the offensive element, the joke would simply not be as funny.
