Sometimes, I wish life were more like a cartoon strip. Everyone speaks in punchlines; you get a cool name like Ziggy or Lemont or Dilbert; and when you get mad, you just bug out your eyes and yell "Aack!" Plus, crocodiles talk, ties curl, and jokes that were never funny (a circuitous path in Family Circus; an "I hate Mondays" gag in Garfield; Dagwood crashes into the mailman in Blondie; the bathing suit does not fit in Cathy; etc.) get laughs year after year.
Even better, the authors of those magical little comic boxes fearlessly call out the silliness of our often unduly serious tech world. Whether they're poking fun at Google's privacy practices or taking a jab at Apple's fiercely devoted fan base, online cartoonists find plenty of fodder for a funny scenario.
We scoured the Web in search of great tech-related cartoons. It would take hours to list all the top-notch illustrations around, but the dozen presented here struck us as particularly terrific. We hope that you'll agree.
