Hey guys!<P>I was thinking about getting together a dropdown for comic strips whose plot/premise/humor is centered around workplace humor.<P>Maybe "Keen@Work" ?<P>I'm beginning to work on the graphic for it, but chime in if you're interested... we'll see how many of us are out there!<P>(If anyone knows Scott Adams, give him a nudge... wink wink)<P>------------------

Ok, I'm giving this thing a kick in the tuckus.<P>The graphic is nearly done.<P>Anyone whose comics even just regularly involve the workplace... we're talking big-box retail stores, offices, convenience stores, computer tech support... I know you're out there! I've read ya's!

Well, my strip takes place mainly in the offices of a gigantic, evil (we're talking cosmic evil, not Microsoft evil) corporation. It does qualify as workplace humor...I've even drawn a "talking around the water cooler" strip (but it sucked).<P>Kevin Wolf

Silly me has "outsourced" the graphic to my wife, who has promptly shuffled it in her 100 things to do list.<P>High time I lit a fire under someone's proverbial tuckus.<P>I'll see if I can't get this thing done today!<P>------------------

Hmmm... Around half of my comic occurs at work. Can I be in, too?

You may have to read it, but Fiddly Bits is about a pizza delivery boy. Most of the work gags are taken from real events that the writer and myself have experienced. Does this count as the type of workplace humor you are looking for? If so, We would be very much interested.

I think it would depend on what, exactly, the focus of you strip is: work or home? 50-50? A lot of strips include a character's work in the storyline without actually being "workplace" strips.<P>By the way, Fiddly Bits is pretty cool.<P><P>------------------
