Quick poll: What is the single favourite humour site you visit regularly when you're supposed to be working?

Mine is http://www.dilbert.com . As an aside if you also visit this, did you use the List Of The Day, before it was removed (I ask, because some of names here look spookily familiar)?

That's my usual bunch. There are others (megatokyo, for instance) that I read on and off, but something positive is the main one I use for pure, dark laughter.

I thought there were no new Calvin and Hobbes strips for years? If that's not true, please, please, tell me where I can find them.

Another vote for Calvin and Hobbes... that kid is wise beyond his years.

a classic... "The one sign that there is intelligent life in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us!"

Dunno if the humour works for non-Brits, but The Framley Examiner ( http://www.framleyexaminer.com ) is a very, very funny spoof local paper set in the fictional town of Framley.

Im also a big fan of Get Your War On ( http://www.mnftiu.cc/mnftiu.cc/war.html )
