Things We Love: The Oatmeal

(Quick Note: Some of the Oatmeal's content is NFSW.) 

If you’re anything like me, you sometimes ask yourself questions like, “Where can I find a print of a grizzly bear with a sriracha flamethrower?” Or “Where can I find an illustrated guide on the proper use of the semi-colon?”


Well, look no further, dear friends. The Oatmeal has you covered. Part internet comic, part blog, part colossal time-suck, the brain child of author/illustrator Matthew Inman will help you sort out some of life’s truly urgent issues, like “How long could you survive chained to a bunk bed with a velociraptor” and “Are your loved ones plotting to eat you? 


I could go on, but like so many great websites, the joy is in the discovery, so pop on over there and poke around. If you’re a word nerd like me, you’ll especially love Inman’s awesome blogs on grammar, which are so great I could LITERALLY kiss Inman for their creation. 


But I’ll just leave you ponder the merits of punching a dolphin instead.
