The Angriest Dog in the World
I’ve always been a big fan of David Lynch’s films and his television series, Twin Peaks, but what some people don’t know is that he’s also been a pioneer as a comic strip writer. His comic strip titled, The Angriest Dog in the World, is a favorite of mine. Each strip almost always has exactly the same progression of images, and every strip begins with the same caption:

The dog who is so angry he cannot move. He cannot eat. He cannot sleep. He can just barely growl. Bound so tightly with tension and anger, he approaches the state of rigor mortis.

Here are some links to a few favorite examples:

If everything is real…
The psychological origin of the idea of space…
Pete has a “running gag”…
It must be clear even to the non-mathematician…
Some weeks, nothing is funny…
It doesn’t get any better than this…

David Lynch is also my favorite source for getting the weather in the morning.
