Let me share the best blogs I came across throughout my month-long Web-surfing here, on Bloghopping.
I laughed so much when I first came across San Francisco-based cartoonist Ted McCagg’s drawings. Though he doesn’t update as frequently as I’m sure most of his fans would like him to, he’s been consistently posting satirical sketches for almost a year.
The blog started out as his musings on the best word ever in the English dictionary, which he concluded with diphthong, which means, according to Dictionary.com: “an unsegmentable, gliding speech sound varying continuously in phonetic quality but held to be a single sound or phoneme and identified by its apparent beginning and ending sound,
as the oi- sound of toy or boil.”
Hmmm, I wonder how I can use the word in daily conversations. Diphthongal names include Leo, Jaimee, and also my own, Stacia?
Well, in any case, here are my favorite belly-ticklers from Questionable Skills:
Well, can’t say much about the last drawing, can I? Ted, who also authored Paper Doll Orgy, illustrated writers all too well in a modest little Venn Diagram, and I don’t deny his truth :p
Armed with a legion of fans on his Facebook page and elsewhere throughout the Web, Ted’s brutally honest cartoons have appeared on various media publications, including The Washington Post, The Atlantic, and The Laughing Squid.
So tell me: Do you live to die or the other way around? Keeps you thinking, doesn’t he?
