Achewood: Another use for blogs

Achewood is one of many very humorous online comics. I started reading these sometime freshman year when I got bored with just sitting in my dorm room if nothing was going on. I would recommend starting with the Granddaddy of them all, the mighty Penny Arcade. One of the more interesting things about Achewood, and the feature that led me to post this, is the section of blogs that the author occasionally writes for all the characters (they're down in the lower right-hand corner of the page). I find it amazing that he can write entries in the style of each different character while gently mocking the different and sometimes odd ways people use blogs. He also has been integrating the events in the comic into the blogs, adding a backstory and sometimes information that is required to understand the joke in the latest strip. Yet another use for all this wonderful technology. These comics are sometimes offensive. Use caution if you're at work or might be offended yourself.
