I'm off to bed will post my list on the morrow. :)

Some sort of Digi/Pokemon?

Adventure Time.  The main character travel to the underworld after accidentally killing a friend's plant to bring it back to life.  Earlier in the episode the friend says she'll be back 'on the morrow', summons a bird and flies away.  Halfway through their adventure Finn (the main character) says "well, at least we don't have to be back until tomorrow."

then...

That's what happens when you live in a fantasy land where everything has a crazy name.

1.      The Bash Street Kids
2.      Roger the Dodger
3.      Dennis the Menace (the British one)
4.      Tom Thug
5.      For Better or For Worse (but only when teenaged April was in it, before and since it’s blah)
6.      School Belle
7.      Beryl the Peril
8.      Desperate Dan
9.      Calamity James
10.   George and Lynne
11.  The Numskulls
12.   Finbarr Saunders and his Double Entendres
13.   The Modern Parents
14.   The Oatmeal
15.   Perry Bible Fellowship
16.   Bananaman
17.   The Bumpkin Billionaires
18.   Jack Black (Viz)
19. Red Meat
20. Buster
21. Hagar the Horrible
22. Fred Basset
23. The Perishers
24. Ivy The Terrible
25. Axa

I think is Basehart had the time to contribute, he'd have gotten more of your picks on the list.

BTW, remember that today's the last day to PM me your suggestions for the next list of crap.  Remember, if you suggest it, you got to do it.  Only 4 lists so far.

That's okay, I don't really mind all that much about making the countdown, I like posting the list at the end though. :)

Here's my list. I thought I had forgotten The Oatmeal but evidently not. Shame it didn't make the LoC, it's a great website. The piece I just read about Tesla (and Edison's douchebaggery) was fantastic.

A lot of these (like Love Is... and Tumbleweeds) are clear indicators that I was a child of the 70s. :)

1. My New Fighting Technique is Unstoppable
2. Hark A Vagrant
3. Calvin & Hobbes
4. Garfield Minus Garfield
5. Get Your War On
6. Life In Hell
7. Peanuts
8. The Oatmeal
9. Scott Meets Family Circus
10. Love Is...
11. Dilbert
12. Rose Is Rose
13. Family Circus
14. Tumbleweeds
15. Mutts
16. Bloom County
17. Far Side
18. Beetle Bailey
19. Ziggy
20. Wizard of Id
21. Lockhorns
22. Shoe
23. Tiger
24. Mary Worth
25. For Better or For Worse

Oatmeal is a pretty funny one. I'd have liked the Tesla one a little better if he'd left the earthquake machine out, as it's been fairly well-debunked, but it is a great story.

Aw crap. I didn't include the comics from The Onion. They would have been really high up, too.

I'd like to say I'm very proud of everyone for not voting for 9 Chickweed Lane. In fact, a quick search reveals I'm the first person to ever mention it on these boards.

I just feel like 9 Chickweed Lane thinks it's better than me. That Brooke McEldowney isn't sharing his vocabulary with me. He's lording it over me. He doesn't allow comments sections on any site that publishes his strip. Who does that?

This is far too true.

Believe it or not that sort of thing even happens at places like Wal Mart.  It amazes me that you don't even have to work in an office for Dilbert to apply to your work place.

Actually, the point I'm trying to make is that I'm the certified guy.  It didn't really teach me anything practical.  I memorized a lot of facts for a test, which I have forgotten in less than 6 months, and have no practical application.

I want to host Top 80s Movies, but I think we should wait a little longer since we just did Top 90s Movies.

Yeah well that does happen quite a bit at Wal Mart.  They insist on bringing in someone special to do something and then it seems like the guy has forgotten everything he was supposed to know.
