If you sell the Moxy Fruvous dol- excuse me-inaction figures that were seen in a previous strip, id buy them. And put them on my dashboard. And maybe another set on my computer. And maybe a set on the entertainment center.

Keep up the good work. I like these guys.

A bitch: the new site design makes it harder (or maybe just inobvious) to catch up on missed stories. I like the "beginning of this sequence" button, but then it seems to want me to read one strip at a time rather than 5 at a time, as I could before. Unless I am missing something.

Also, I have to reset my browser window when I come here, because it's so @#$%@$% wide.

Also, there's a mosquito bite on my ankle and it really itches.

Say hi to Reverend Sean for me.

G'day Doug,

I like the cartoon.... especially the new storyline for Hunting and Gathering. Keep up the good work, and don't stop being sarcastic. I've just read the entire archive while I am waiting for a CD to burn here at work.

Dear Doug and Kat,

If you're looking for merchandising ideas, have you thought about mousepads?

Both of you, in no particulat order,

I wanted to write and say "Thank you!" for Waiting For Bob. I read several online comics, but I think it's WfB I enjoy the most.

The things that happen so remind me of the strange and only vaguely credible things that actually happen to me, which I appreciate, and the people ring true to people I know.

The artwork is clean, and clear, but also contains plenty of little details.

I enjoy the comic very much, and thought I'd let you both know it.

..you're right. It is sort of reminiscient of his rapid fire, lack of verbage style. But it was missing the cursing. ;) Violently.
