  10. Congrats. ๐Ÿ˜€

  11. Thomas says:

    Doug, congratulations on 4 awesome years – checking the day’s cartoon is the first thing I do before work each day; you’ve started every one with a smile, and sometimes a “fall-out-of-chair-laughing!”

    All the Chuck Norris panels are great, I’m going to vote for Day of the Ninja stare-down! Though truly, it’s near impossible to choose a favorite….

  12. Jen says:

    And I’ve been reading for about three. You rock. Thanks!

  13. Harold says:

    Great work on 4 years.
    My favorite would be Frosty from dec 18th.

  14. Giovanna says:

    Definitely million monkeys. I love the logic. Although the sky gnomes come in a close second.

  15. Jen says:

    Oh, and my favorite(s) is the irrational fear series. =)

  16. It must be the French in me being attracted to the logic elements of Amazing.

  17. Furie says:

    Happy Anniversary Doug. My favourite so far has to be Doorstep Ninjas. It’s so simple yet I crack up every time I see it.

  18. Katy says:

    Many Happy Returns!

    My favourite is ‘Life Sucks’ – so much so that it’s my desktop wallpaper on my work pc…

  19. fr says:

    Ok, i discovered you recently so i didn’t check everything, but my favorite one would be “Orientation”, about hell and wi-fi. I really fellt like a chicken.

  20. Rowley says:

    You’ve made me laugh for some time now, I’d like to just thank you for making my work days happier.
    I’d like to vote for “Death”, how I’d love to work from home myself.


  21. James says:

    Thanks for the entertainment ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m voting for “Spork”

  22. Hannah says:

    Savage Chickens is always the start to my day in work – whilst the email fires up, I find out what our feathery friends are up to this morning.
    I loved “How to Quit Your Crappy Job” (and sent the link to several friends of mine who were considering doing it!) but of the Top Ten list, my favourite is “Million Monkeys” – I get this image of a monkey in Shakespeare’s ruff collar…

  23. psn says:

    woo! 4 years, huh? congrats! i’m not sure what my favorite is, but i really liked (and passed around) the barack to the future one.

  24. Juliana says:

    Hi Doug!! Sending you congrats from Buenos Aires, Argentina!! I’ve been following you for more than one year, every morning when I arrive to the office.
    My favourite cartoon in “Chaos in Hell” (Librarian Hell). Kisses! And keep drawing!

  25. Doug Black says:

    Fun With Genetics 5!

    I’ve been working on the rabbit and billy goat to Jackalope. Deer DNA is too complicated.

    Your comic gives me hope.

    ~ Doug

  26. Saulo Achkar says:

    My vote: “CouchBot 2000”

  27. Rodrigo Ortiz says:

    Certainly it’s Happiness ( Nothing beats the blood of clowns ๐Ÿ™‚

  28. J.Sochor says:

    Right now Million Monkeys is my favorite as Darwin’s 200th birthday is coming up (as well as the 150th anniversary of the publication of “On the Origin of Species”). He is perhaps the greatest scientist of all time and evolution is a beautiful theory that unites every living thing on this planet!

  29. Teal Cuttlefish says:

    I found you about a year ago and promptly read all the back cartoons, giving up part of a night’s sleep to do so.

    For this year, I’m torn between “Cubicle Future” and “The Bard.” Yep, I’m a Science Fiction geek. I even dream in SciFi, which makes explaining my dreams a real challenge.

  30. Claire says:

    Definitely my favourite (& the one that resulted in an addiction to Savage Chickens in the office with lots of muttering under breath) is Raccoon vs Moon. Although I note, with dismay, that I can’t see Mr Raccoon in the celebratory cartoon above. Perhaps he was so annoyed with the caper, he protested being included…

  31. Aline says:

    Happy anniversary — and many more!

    One of my favourites, it’s hard to pick just one really, is Death Works From Home. Although if you ask me again tomorrow, or even in ten minutes, the answer might differ just because I cannot choose.

  32. Gavin says:

    Happiness – The Blood Of Clowns one. By a long way.

    You took up the baton from Farside when that stopped.

    Now you and Dilbert run on alone together!

    PLEASE keep going!


  33. Tania says:

    happy aniversary! I’m tottally adict to your cartoons…
    I love freud ones

  34. annie says:

    I like them all. Most days they are โ€œfall-out-of-chair-laughing!โ€ funny as Thomas said. I’m thinking I liked the Pi one the best from March 14.
    Thanks for the daily cheer.

  35. Troy Deutsch says:

    Congratulations on the fourth year!
    My favorite was pi. Being an engineer, that still makes me laugh!

  36. kate dickie says:

    Congratulations on 4 years. My avourite would have to be Chaos in Hell which I forwarded to my friend, who is a University Librarian. So the cartoon adorns the Law Library in Dundee University in Scotland. Travel well, these chickens!

  37. Eli says:

    Congrats! I definitely vote for Bears, but it wasn’t easy to choose.

  38. Shae says:

    My favorite is definitely Welcome to Hogwarts, a pretty recent one, but still a fave.

  39. andres says:

    I love “chickenkrump” because I also do embarassing stuff on elevators when Im alone.

    Great work ! Keep on drawing ! U help my day to start.


  40. Caroline says:

    One has to have their everyday dose of Chicken !!!! Something like “Like an Egyptian” (the Egyprian dog with a leash!) cheers you up for the whole day ! I’m a (French) chickensavageaholic !

  41. Bobbie says:

    So hard to choose, but I think One Cloudy Day is at the top of my list. Tree Hugger runs a close second.

  42. Samreen says:

    I like so many of them..but “Fun with Freud” really made me laugh.. and all others of Ninja, Jason and Prod3000..just love em.

  43. Yeti says:

    Congrats, Doug! Your chickens always make my day.
    My favorite would be “One Cloudy Day” from July 23, 2008. Cheers!

  44. Olivia says:

    I loved the million monkeys one; I had it on my desktop for months! Congratulations on four awesome years!

  45. Charles says:

    Congratulations for the 4th year Doug!! Hope everything just keep getting better ๐Ÿ˜‰

    My favorite cartoon ever is the Death one, Death working from home is just hilarious hahaha

  46. Jake Covert says:

    Chuck Norris is the best: Ultimate Dessert

  47. Theresa says:

    Toshi station! Hysterical!!

  48. Christine says:

    Anything involving Excellence in Management!

  49. John says:

    Happy Birthday! Bock Bock!

  50. Another Doug says:

    The “Overheard on Tatooine” has to be my favorite, or maybe “Toshi Station”. I also loved the “Barack to the Future” one, and “Everything’s better with Mr. T” (just this week).

    Best of luck to you!

  51. Dennis Negron says:

    I loved “Kiss Me”. That was too good.

  52. Kieran Lindsey says:

    As a wildlife biologist, I have to say Million Monkeys is my all-time favorite Savage Chickens cartoon.

  53. Troy says:

    Congratulations on the 4th year and thanks for all the laughs!!!
    My favorite had to be PI. Being an engineer, I still laugh today about that one.

  54. Ronnie Godfrey says:

    ‘Parenting’ has been my favourite but it was hard to choose. The poor little chicken child!

  55. Corrie says:

    Congrats on 4 years, Doug!

    Being a math nerd, I have to say my favorite cartoon was Pi. It matches the Pi tattoo on my wrist.

    …I wonder if people who see my tattoo at bars say the same thing about me?…


  56. Kristin Maynard says:

    I am a new fan and hope you keep going for more years to come. I like Million Monkeys, the strip is funny and the Monkey is so damn cute.

  57. Ross says:

    “One Han clapping” is definitely my favorite-I teach 7th, 8th and 9th graders, and I had to stifle the giggles throughout the school day after reading that in the morning!

  58. lilly says:

    Hey, happy anniversary!
    It’s hard to choose only ONE favorite, but since i’ll be a librarian when i grow up, i choose the “Library Hell”.

  59. Lisa says:

    The eternal favourite… Talk Like a Pirate Day 2008


  60. wcgreen says:

    Congratulations on your four years’ of art on sticky notes. My favorite is December’s “Welcome to Happyland!” because no one expects Santa with an axe.

  61. Scott Smith says:

    I am also pretty new, but out of the lists above, I’d have to go with Tigger or maybe Death. In any case, congrats on the anniversary and thanks for making my morning!

  62. Joe says:

    Happy anniversary Doug!

    My favourite was Happiness (cause I’m sick like that)

  63. kgoule says:

    My favorite is the one with happy bear…
    I know its not that original to pick this one since its in the top 10, but still I think its the funniest cartoon ever…
    keep it up Doug !

  64. Congratulations!

    My favourite of the year is still Gorgeous from June 25th.

    I still want it as a T-shirt!

  65. Teleri says:

    I vote for “Pharmacy”, November the 5th, although there were so many good cartoons this year. And last year.. and the year before.. Anyway, congrats ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you keep it up for some more years

  66. justastranger says:

    Gz with the 4years. This is my new favorite:


  67. Andrea says:

    I look forward to Savage Chickens -it usually gives me my first laugh of the day. It is hard to choose a favorite, but being a card-carrying treehugger, that is the one I choose.

  68. kdc says:

    Tigger. funniest cartoon ever. followed closely by the Toshi Station cartoon. congrats on 4 years!
    best wishes –

  69. Angela says:

    “The Development of Language”, of course – because I’m a linguist and because it’s almost impossible to find good humour based on Linguistics…! ๐Ÿ˜€

  70. sofija says:

    I Like almoust all of them, but to pick one ill pick One Cloudy Day

    allso spot the narcisist iz one of my favorites

  71. Crucifire says:

    Congrats bro.. keep up the chickwork..

  72. fracai says:

    I only just subscribed to the RSS around a week ago so I’m having to go off of the 20 listed favorites. But among those, hands down, it’s gotta be “Million Monkeys”.

  73. Tony says:

    “Death” rocks!

  74. Keeheon says:

    Hey Doug!

    I really enjoyed your cartoons…

    my favorite was Children of Hecklers


    Thanks for everything!

  75. Kari says:

    Seriously, I love saving the womp rats, because honestly, they can’t defend themselves! My children blow up womp rats for fun on their Lego Star wars game. I just want to do my part in saving these poor defenseless…ummm…rats.

  76. Pando says:

    It was hard for me choosing a favourite, so i randomly selected one of my top 5, and i came up with “gorgeous”. the others are; return to happy land, day of the ninja 2008, sick of moving and meanwhile. So congrats on making so many awesome cartoons in 4 years ๐Ÿ™‚

  77. Lisa says:

    I have way too many favorites, but recent one that really made me giggle is Fire! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Happy Anniversary!

  78. Greg says:

    My favorite are the dont let the bedbug bite. Thanks for making my mornings start in a good place.

  79. Luv2fli2 says:

    Congrats on 4 years!

    My boss thought I was “cracked” posting the chickens outside my office door everyday until I gave him the “PI” cartoon and he changed his way of thinking. He has a degree in Physics.

  80. Julie D. says:

    Congratulations and thank you for giving me so much enjoyment every day! ๐Ÿ™‚

  81. Andrea says:

    My favorite is T-I-G-G-E-R!!!

  82. George says:

    I have to admit that I didn’t review all of the 2008 cartoons, although I have read them all at one time or another. I did glance at some of the choices that readers and also the creator–Savage Chickens’ creator, of course, not THE creator–and recall that cartoon called “Treehugger.” It’s one that I saved. Even though there may be a different one somewhere from 2008 that I may also have saved, I’m short of the time required to review a full year of cartoons, and , therefore, I’ll go with “Treehugger.” It’s at great cartoon!


  83. GBM says:

    I’ve only been subscribed for about three months now, but I really liked “Life is Grim” – not so much because it made me giggle, but because it expressed something in a way that I couldn’t put my finger on. Seems to me that’s the bar that should be set to qualify as art, and I was tickled to see that a simple webcomic had passed it.

  84. Brad says:

    My fave is “Death works from home,” but there must be something wrong with me – my favorites are usually the hell / death ones. Definitely need one of your psychoanalyst panels to straighten me out…

  85. Sam says:

    Yay Year 4!

    My favourite of the past year is “The Boss Who Cried Deadline” and all of your cubicle themed jokes. And anything with Timmy Tofu!!

  86. Ashley-Rose Harris says:

    Obviously… my favorite is “Happiness” with Happy Bears 2nd appearance. I heart Happy Bear!

  87. CD says:

    Look forward to the skewed humor every morning.
    I loved Chickenmeh – my teen daughter’s favorite word.
    And a million monkeys

  88. Jonathan says:

    I loved going back through the year and rereading them all!

    This one stands out though!

  89. Sara J. says:

    The last panel of November’s “Troll” made me wonder if you’d been out drinking with me the night before you drew it.

  90. rgthane says:

    Congrads on 4 years! I’ve been following you for over 3 years.
    One of my favorites is “Deadline”.

  91. Tristan says:

    I’ll go with Next for NASA.

  92. Niamh says:

    Hey Doug,
    Congratulations on four years, wow!
    One of my recent favourites was ‘Fire!’ as someone else also mentioned. I have so many friends who are addicted to Twitter that it was really funny to me ๐Ÿ™‚

    Keep up the good work ๐Ÿ™‚

  93. oops! I posted under Death.(hoping for a mug)
    that’s gota be one of the all-time greatest.
    love yr work.I’m always fwding ’em to my kids.

  94. Karen says:

    Congrats on a wonderful 4 years! It’s awesome seeing the stuff you come up with.

    My favourite has been “Spot the Narcissist” from January 7, 2009

  95. Amauriel says:

    I’m a Star Wars nerd…so Toshi Station got linked from my delicious and facebook and sent to tons of my friends. (^_^)

  96. Dean says:

    HAPPY 4TH ANNIVERSARY! I enjoy your cartoons every day! My favorite cartoon(s) this year have to be “Hell Smell” (I laughed so hard!) and “Happiness” (Pure brilliance!). Keep ’em comin’!

  97. jambuku says:

    Four Years! Congrats and
    here’s to the next 4.
    I have loved a lot of them but as noone else has mentioned Talk Like A Pirate 2008 yet, that’s my pick. Tops!!

  98. Lisa Long says:

    My definite favorite this year was the Pirate Day one… ARR! YAR! HAR!! Pirate linguists debate… ๐Ÿ™‚ I sent it to everyone at my school and printed it out.. it’s still hanging on my wall in my classroom!

  99. Klif says:

    GET ON UP.

  100. Kat says:

    Maybe because it is so recent it is my fave, but I LOVED the ‘celeb getting out of car with no panties: Bad Santa’ one. Made me fall all over the place laughing. Posted it at work… and got the same reaction from others.

    LOVE Savage Chickens!!!

  101. alvaro says:

    My favourite one is Couchbot2000, or perhaps Meanwhiled… No, definitively Rock-paper-scissors.

  102. Geodora says:

    Congratulations on your anniversary!! Greetings from Argentina! I really enjoy reading Savage Chickens every morning before starting to work. My favourite now is Sleep Tight I and II.

  103. Ted Katzung says:

    My favorite has got to be the “Tigger” one (

    I have it printed and taped up on my file cabinet at work! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Keep up the great work, it’s the only way I make it through the mornings!

  104. vickie says:

    Soooo many good ones this year, but the one I printed out and posted to the bulletin board was Exposed! (Dec. 12). Tsk tsk, Santa!

  105. MagyK says:

    My favorate was:
    Flying Reindeer
    December 19, 2008

    I just couldn’t stop laughing at this one. Pure genious ^_^

  106. Wendy says:

    My favorite was The Boss Who Cried “Deadline”. Too true, and hanging in my cube ๐Ÿ™‚

  107. Sheila says:

    I have the chickens emailed to me everyday and I love opening up that email in the morning. I have both “One Cloudy Day” and “Ultimate Dessert” hanging in my cube and it’s tough to pick but I’m going to have to give “One Cloudy Day” my vote. I remember laughing really, really hard when I read that one. I love a good surprise ending.

  108. Emily says:

    Congrats! I like the one where Darth Vadar is the new defense against the dark arts teacher!

  109. RAMPAGE says:

    Congrats on 4 years.
    My vote is for Barry White #10 back in July.

  110. Maria E. says:

    Morbid as it may be, I think my favorite would have to be Everlasting. I actually printed it out and have it on my cubicle wall. =)

  111. masarak says:

    My favorite is always the current one… mostly because I have a short attention span from watching He-Man and Transformers cartoons as a child. But if I had to pick a runner-up, it would be chickenconversation. Because, unfortunately, that’s my life.

  112. Dawn says:

    Pi is the loneliest number haven’t we all felt that way.
    Keep up the good work Doug, love your cartoons!

  113. Sally says:

    Congrats! I’m going to go with The Crawling Eye where he loses his contact.

  114. Kathy A. says:

    One Cloudy Day is definitely my favorite (although Pi was a strong contender).

  115. Another Doug says:

    My favorite this year was yesterday’s…Confidence. My all-time favorite was Know-It-All. I think it was more than a year ago, though.

  116. Carol says:

    I’ve been reading you since the early days and still waiting to see if the chickens ever go bowling. Out of the top 10 showing I must vote for Ultimate Dessert. Who can refuse Chuck Norris Roundhouse Ripple.

  117. kgoule says:

    @Nathalie : ca fait plaisir de voir qu’il y a d’autres franรงais fans de doug ! ๐Ÿ™‚

  118. sheala says:

    Barack to the Future is pretty awesome, especially post election.
    I’m always a sucker for the Star Wars theme…

  119. Julie says:

    Doug, I love your cartoons! I look forward everyday to seeing what you’ve come up with next. And I love the fact that you are a Star Wars geek like me.:-) My fav this year was “Death Works From Home”. Laughed so hard and I forwarded it to all of my friends. Will you be putting out a book with your collection in it? I would definity buy it and I know others would too. Please let me know. Thank you and keep em’ coming!

  120. Rebecca says:

    Congratulations on 4 years! It is well deserved.

    My favorite cartoon is “Drink Beer”.

    I definitely support the Brewers Association and a few weeks ago I could have been one of these chickens! I needed it to be Friday bad!

    I introduced your cartoons to my Mom and she’s hooked!

    Thanks for making us giggle a little every day.

  121. Ken says:

    My favorite is “The Loudness” from June. I think we all know what it’s like to have rowdy philosophers living next door.

  122. Jiffy says:

    Oh, I have so many favorites and look at your site almost every day, but this one is definitely true in my own life and made me laugh out loud:

  123. sarah louise says:

    My favorite were the Bed Bugs, but Barack to the Future is pretty close behind. You rock! We love chickens at my house!!


  124. Tim Canny says:

    I’d like to see the comic that contains all the characters that were only featured in a comic once in the last year. I think that would be a most sad cartoon. :[

    Hard to pick a favorite but in order to adhere to the rules of the game and possibly get a free mug I’m gonna say the Tigger cartoon. I always knew there was a sociopath hiding behind those stripes and those beady black eyes.

  125. Definitely the James Brown alarm clock. I walk around the office singing that whenever someone’s late!

  126. Lori says:

    Tough choice….but since I love Halloween, I’ll pick The Crawling Eye.

    LOVE your weird sense of humor!

  127. marianne says:

    happy anniversary!
    my favorite is the Barack to the Future one!

  128. Rachel says:

    Not easy to choose a favorite, but I remember laughing all day about “The Detour”, so I’ll go with that one!

  129. Karine says:

    It was hard to choose just one, so I’m going with Death works from home. ๐Ÿ™‚

  130. AndyT13 says:

    I love ’em all. Can’t get through the day without my dose of savage chickens!
    Of these though my favorite is
    “Happiness”! The Blog Of Clowns! So Funny!!!!!

  131. Mike Wagner says:

    Happiness — I drink the blood of clowns.

    I want a tshirt with that on it!

    Congrats…thanks for sharing you talent with the rest of us.

    Keep creating…with abandon,

  132. Angela says:

    The worlds of awesome comics and awesome music collided when I saw your video for Phantom Mountain! Gratz on 4 years!

    My favorite has to be Meh from Dec 29… As someone who uses the word often and has received the same question I am happy to have a link to give those questioning me.

  133. Sarah Minchin says:

    Happy Anniversary! It’s my birthday this weekend too… although I’m just a leeeeetle bit older than 4 ๐Ÿ˜€
    My favourite cartoon was Tigger, I always knew there was something suspicious about that grin on his face!

  134. Erica Gieras says:

    I have a lot that I love and have cut out and placed in my cube but my favorite would have to be “Orientation” where the chickens were all in hell and also the one..not sure which day…
    “Great another famous person photographed getting out of a car with no underwear on”

    “I expected more from you santa!!”…that was so funny to me.

    I love savage chickens soooo much i want to have a 1/2 human 1/2 chicken baby..haha

  135. veggiegrrl says:

    I love the entire PoetBot series. Every time you post a new one that alludes to a poem, I offer a prize to my students if they can tell me the author & title.

    My favorite PoetBot of all time is “The Road Not Taken,” and my favorite from the past year is “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud.”

  136. Laura says:

    Congratulations! I love your chickens!

    If I have to choose, I found really funny the one named “exposed!”.

  137. John Payne says:

    Awesome! Entertaining! Congratulations on four years . . . mat there be many more! I forward these gems to my friends ’round the world. For me it’s gotta be #2, One Cloudy Day. It’s in the realm of reality which makes it that much funnier! I laughed at it for days. I still have a copy of it tacked to the front of my refrigerator. Your email is one of the few that I truly look forward to receiving each and every day. Thank you so much.

  138. WhizGidget says:

    It’s a tie between Tigger and Deadline (love that Prod3000!)

    Tigger made me laugh so hard though…

    And Congratulations on the 4th year!

  139. Jessajune says:

    I’ve been reading Savage Chickens for quite a while now, and it always makes me smile!

    My favorite this year was probably “How to Quit Your Crappy Job”… probably because it had some, uh, personal relevance for me. Anyway, it was funny AND true, and it made me laugh quite a bit.

  140. Annika says:

    “Overheard on Tattooine” is possibly my favorite cartoon of all time.

  141. Linda says:

    Congrats! My favorite has gotta be Troll.

  142. Martha Whitney says:

    Although Million Monkeys is truly classic in my book, I have to say that Chicken Misery is one that resonates in my heart, and gives me a better attitude under difficult circumstances, because it is so true: misery is only grudgingly tolerated!
    Thanks for an upbeat start to my day.

  143. R. Bayardo says:

    Don’t know the name,but: Welcome to hell…No, there is no Wifi!

  144. Leigh says:

    SOOO hard – I loved the bed bugs, but I think my fave had to be….

    Writer Monkey!

  145. Lolita says:

    I loved the seek of a thousand chickens. That was great. I also love the pop up cartoons. So 3D!

    Happy Birthday! Pre-school awaits!

  146. claire piper says:

    As a migraineur, I really identify with this one. It’s good (but yes, sad) to know one is not alone.

  147. April says:

    Life in Eight Easy Steps – too true…

  148. Mike W. says:

    Death Works from Home is priceless. I have it posted next to my computer at my mind-numbing job. If he “deletes” me any time soon, I hope he does it early in the morning so at least I will get out of a day’s work. ๐Ÿ™‚

  149. kristina says:

    Congratulations and best wishes for your continuing success!!

    I’m partial to poet-bot and the sky gnomes….

  150. Christopher says:

    My favourite is probably “The Grapes of Wrath of Khan” (titled Wrath), although it’s a toss-up between that and the Lost Ninja Battle sequence from Macbeth.

  151. Maureen says:

    My daughter-in-law is French Canadian, lovely girl, and her and my son do love good restaurants and zombies.
    I LOVE your humor!

  152. Balam Quitze says:

    Congrats I had a few of your chickens in my desk (orientation and wellcome to hell) they make happy every day.

    Thank you.

  153. Roxanne says:

    Congrats on 4 years! My fav is Ten Miles.

  154. Alarm clock. This cartoon was the first in a long time to make me want to own it. The alarm clock that is.

  155. lindylu says:

    My favorite is the “Bad Santa” getting out of the car with no panties! Also love “misery is merely tolerated” as it really must be. Hope you keep cartooning because I love the chickens, and really, it all comes down to being about me, right? Congrats on 4 great years!!

  156. camelama says:

    I loved “Movers” – move across town in 5 seconds! Hee hee hee.

  157. Feng says:

    “The Dating Scene” with Tofu Timmy really tickled me for some reason.

    I love your work. Thanks for all that.

  158. jgf says:

    The comic I thought of first was Barack to the Future (a.k.a. Barack Obama). =j

  159. Sammy says:

    Thank YOU for a great year Doug! Your chickens make my otherwise dull life much brighter! My favorite is:

    Barack Obama (especially considering BTTF is my favorite movie!)

    Another one I like is “A Long Flight” July 21, 2006

  160. Deede says:

    Hands down… FLYING REINDEER!

    I get the daily SavChicken and will forward some on to my whole address book. I sent this one and now my sister gets the daily SavChicken because she loved it so much!

    You make my cube-world tolerable… Thanks Doug!!

  161. Alina says:

    death :X

    luv your work, hope you draw the chickens 4 many many years 2 come

    kisses and hugs from romania!

  162. Tyler says:

    Congratulations on 4 years, Doug!

    I’ve been checking this site every weekday for the past 3 1/2 years, and you are consistently able to make me laugh.

    My favorite cartoon from this past year, I believe, would be Million Monkeys.

    It was one of those cartoons that made me laugh and then go “hmmm…”

    Keep it up!


  163. James Quirk says:

    HellTV has to be my favourite: it’s reality TV meets grad school if you ask me. I liked Godzilla Movers but it cuts a little too close to the bone after moving house last summer.

  164. Jillian says:

    Way to go Doug!! I visit your site every day and I love your PROD3000! It so descrbes my life in corporate America, that they are posted in my cube! I also love the the Trekkie! (

    Here’s to another fine year!

  165. Andre says:

    Well done, and many thanks!

    I have to say I love the Million Monkeys logic. Other favourites include The Dance of Life, IQ Test, Cancelled, Binge-Drinking … the list goes on.

  166. Susannah says:

    Exposed! on December 12, 2008

  167. My favorite was “Barack to the Future” because sometimes I wish Barack Hussein Obama’s parents hadn’t met.

  168. Bernardo Zirpoli says:

    That Karl Marx cookie lover one!

  169. Alyssa says:

    I absolutely love Poet-Bot!!

    It is tough to pick a favorite one because so many make me laugh. Keep up the good work!

  170. Rachel says:

    I loved Tigger. The twisted portrayal of a beloved Disney character made me laugh out loud.

  171. Karen says:

    I love your cartoon! Thank you for four years of fun.

    Yesterday’s cartoon, Confidence, cracked me up. That’s my vote.

  172. susie says:

    My favorite is from October 8th – “Skydiving”. I keep it in my email inbox so I can read it every morning. You are the best.

  173. Seraphine says:

    four years! congratulations doug! no wonder you are awesome, you’ve had practice.
    i’ve always liked your poet-bot comics. there’s a little poet in all of us, so its easy to relate to.

  174. Cheryl D says:

    ohhh hard call! Im debating between “Change is Possible” and “Ultimate Dessert”

    I think I’ll go with “Change is Possible”
    ๐Ÿ™‚ I love your comics!

  175. Dan says:

    OMG, Love love love the Death works from home!!!

  176. Sara Clauss says:

    Darth Vader as the new professor of the Dark Arts. Mixing of geeky genres?!? HEAVEN!!!

  177. Sarah O says:

    Yay to 4 years. I love starting my day with your comics.

    “True Confessions” really made my day when I got it.


  178. Jody says:

    Death. Definitely Death.

    Thanks for bringing fun to the day! ๐Ÿ™‚

  179. DoubleJay says:

    I’d have to go with “Trivia Pillage”. Pirates of Penzance references are always welcome!

  180. Jen says:

    Happy anniversary! I’m so glad I stumbled on your site – love the comics. It’s hard to pick a favorite when I love them all, but I have to say I laughed out loud at work when I read the Barack to the Future one – it really resonated with this child of the ’80s! Here’s to many more years to come!

  181. Raquel says:

    Poet Bot 5 is my vote.

    He always makes laugh or at least brings a smile to my face… he’s such a character. ๐Ÿ™‚

  182. Jane says:

    Has to be Tigger!

    I think this is quite possibly the funniest cartoon I’ve ever seen.

    Love all your work though. Here’s to the next 4 years


  183. Carroll says:

    My favorite was “Excellence in Management 10.” Let’s just say that art imitated life a little too closely…

    Thanks for making me smile every day!

  184. Daphne says:

    I’ve loved so many of your cartoons (and am still so impressed you can come up with GOOD new content every day… still hoping you’ll be syndicated Doug!).

    However Death is my favourite, since I often work from home myself.

  185. Dennis says:

    Wow favorites … so many to choose from. Ok, I really did like Toshi Station. But the search for intelligent life one was good too. And the vodka water cooler mixed up with marketing … cool!

  186. Roberta Taylor says:

    I giggled about ‘Sleep Tight II’ all day- perfect!

  187. I can never remember what happens when, or which are my favourites. (Especially since you have so many good ones!) I was going to go back and review the year, but I seem to be having problems loading your site today. Here’s a good one I did manage to load: Famous Screams,

    (Of the ones you listed above, Toshi Station, and Pi rank pretty high!)

  188. gabi says:

    My favourite is the “Mistaken identity”. I also love psychology cartoons:)

  189. TAMMY says:

    Dear Doug, I can’t believe that it has been 4 years! congratultion on your sucess with the chickens, and all the others! My 1st pick would be your Forth Anniversay But that was not in the picking so 2nd would have to be One Cloudy Day! I remember doing that when I was young, Glad I never did it with your chicken! hehe Thank you for bring a smile to my face and making me laugh out loud! You are the best Smiling Tammy

  190. Jessica says:

    Thanks so much for all the great comics!

    Being an English major in university, I especially love Poet-bot.
    I’d have to say that my favourite cartoon from this year is Poet-bot 5.

    Thanks again! ๐Ÿ˜€

  191. Laurie Ann says:

    I LOVED the Pirate text messaging (“R”). I laughed all day just thinking about it.

  192. Brian Symington says:

    Without a doubt, my fave chicken cartoon of last year, of all time, is “Tigger.” The cartoon explains so much! Thanks for the smile every day!

  193. By far the development of language…so very true!

  194. Robbie says:

    Hooray for savage Chickens!!!

  195. Dave says:

    I agree with those who voted for yesterday’s as one of the all time greats. Spot the narcissist is close second of my favorites for the last 12 months. Third place: Excellence in Mgt 8.

  196. Kari says:

    I hope I’m still eligible since I won a coffee mug last time you did a giveaway!

    My favorite from this past year was the follow up to the bed bug cartoon where the bed bug asks for booze ๐Ÿ™‚

  197. Brian Donley says:

    I think that your Excellence In Management series is your best work, so I’m gonna go with Lesson #9. Stretch Goals are the BOMB!

  198. Mike says:

    So many faves!! But I’d say Ultimate Dessert is good. I can’t get enough Chuck Norris jokes!! They are addicting!

  199. Dinana says:

    Happy 4th Doug! A day without chickens is like a day without sunshine! My favorite is Eight Steps. Runner up is Snowflakes/Spiders! (why wouldn’t chickens like snowflakes to be spiders, by the way???)

  200. Kevin says:

    It’s got to be “Blue Sky!” How true that the internet (wikipedia) knows all things because anyone can edit it.
    Keep up the great work Doug, your mind works in an interesting way.

  201. scrufflepuff says:

    Congratulations Doug! Thanks for bringing much needed laughter to my mornings!

    Loved the popular Tigger and it got some coworkers to start reading regularly, but Fun With Freud is the only one I actually printed out this year. It appeared the same week I got “promoted” to running kid’s parties at work and I rival Freud’s inability to connect with them.

  202. Dave says:

    I would have to say Pi is my favorite this past year.

    congratz on 4 years and still going!


  203. Susan D. says:

    So many to choose from–but I think my favorite is “Death”, where death is telecommuting. I practically choked on my coffee when that came up!

  204. lefolieadeux says:

    I’m a psychologist, so of course, my favorite features that hilarious guy, Freud! The one “reinforcement” really had me giggling

  205. Amy says:

    I like Rock On, the comic about “ukulele hero”. I’m a new reader, but I love the comics!

  206. Lesley Riley says:

    Who knew chickens had such adventures?! Your creativity kicks all. Thank You Doug

  207. Chuck Toporek says:

    I gotta go with Death, man.

  208. Julie says:

    My favorite from last year is from Jan. 21. Still Life with Ninja. My ultimte favorites are Ninja Library and Tastless Tofu.

  209. abinikai says:

    Treehugger. Most definitely. As an environmental scientist, I have developed a firm belief that treehuggers will almost always be disappointed.

  210. Dood says:

    Best one was easily “Meanwhile, in New Mexico…” that was just genius


  211. NormMonkey says:

    I get a laugh from Savage Chickens daily, but “Freud” (the reverse psychology one) made my flip my lid. I had to share it with the rest of the office:

    I’d have to say this is my favourite, and would make a great coffee cup comic for the store.

    ASIDE: this one taught me to always check the title for puns:

  212. Stacey R. says:

    I personally enjoyed “Gone Sledding”!

    Thanks for the Chickens!

  213. Christopher says:

    I vote for the Facebook comic.

  214. ChickaSher says:

    Congrats on 4 years! I’ve been reading for about 1 and look forward to them every morning.

    “Gloog” just about had me laughing coffee thru my nose. Thanks! ๐Ÿ˜€

  215. Zack N says:

    Congratulations on four years! Thank you for allowing me to look forward to a yellow sticky note in my inbox every morning. Classic stuff.

    I’d have to say my favorite is definitely “Overheard on Tatooine”. Absolutely hysterical!

  216. Nancy says:

    I can’t decide between “Friday”, “Carrot”, “Fun with Genetics 4” (all work related), “High Efficiency”, and for pure gruesomeness, “Tigger”

  217. Suzie says:

    My family makes me vote for any zombie associated ones……but I did like “Fire” as well as whoever it was that liked it…..

    Articulate as ever!!!

  218. toma says:

    Hi Doug
    First comment ever here.
    I check your comics everyday, love them.

    My favorite from the past year is

    with a close second and third place:
    “The Development of Language”

  219. Zork says:

    I vote for Poet-Bot#5. He (she? it?) is by far my favorite reoccuring character (other than the chickens, of course).

    Congratulations on 4 great years! Why aren’t you syndicated yet???

  220. Dave D of WV says:

    I’m too embarrassed to admit that I enjoyed “Tigger” and “Happiness”. So, instead, I’ll claim “Bears” and “Good Times” – though I’ve forwarded soooooo many of your panels. Thanks for brightening every (week) day.

  221. Sue W. says:

    Thanks — I just had a great time going through both lists — I love them all! Excellence in Management 9 is the one I have up in my cube.

  222. nonamedufus says:

    Congratulations on 4 hilarious years. I gave you a plug here:

    You present us with a tough choice as so many of your pieces are simply great. Lately, though, I had to laugh and wipe my nose after reading that binge drinking caused “drain cabbage”

  223. Andy says:

    I hate Chuck Norris jokes. I do. And I’m not fond of the actual guy either. But “It tastes like pain!” made me laugh, so I have to vote for “Ultimate Dessert”.

    But the Freudian cartoon about bears is a close second.

  224. Sharilyn says:

    i love my daily dose of chickens and look forward each work day to the chicken-of-the-day in my email box! there are so many that i adore! it’s hard to choose a favorite, but i do find Amazing! pretty amazing! ๐Ÿ™‚ though two close runners up are Bears and Death.

    you have such a great sense of humor! thanks for sharing! and, i’m still waiting for your first book!!!

    happy chick-i-versary! ๐Ÿ™‚

  225. debochan says:

    I would definately have to vote for Naughty Timmy Tofu.

  226. Andreas says:

    Happy Anniversary! My favorite has to be: Toshi station. (I even blogged about it:

  227. jesรบs says:

    congratulations ๐Ÿ˜€ and I believe the strip about tigger is the best (

  228. King Bob says:

    May 29, 2008 “Return to Happyland” Yeah Prozac

  229. Dani says:

    I think I have to say “Something to Live For”, but then I’m a sucker for bacon-related hilarity.

    Congrats on the four years and here’s to many more.

  230. Dawn says:

    The Alarm Clock!!
    It is my ringer.

  231. James H says:

    Congratulations!!! My favorite for the past year is definitely “One Cloudy Day” — with “Tigger” running a close second.

    Here’s to MANY more years and MANY more chickens!

  232. Sindy says:

    love – one cloudy day

  233. Bruce says:

    “Something to Live For”, also a bacon lover.
    Wish I could remember all of the greatest, my favorite of all time, so far, has been “Read My Blog”
    Congrats Doug and keep ’em coming!

  234. Cristina says:

    “Confidence” really cracked me up. This one gets my vote!

  235. victor says:

    GRATZ!! ive been checking out your skity notes for about 2ยฝ years
    my favorite was “ultimate dessert”

  236. megatron says:

    it’s hard to pick one favorite, but i definitely like the one about how there’s nothing to live for… except the smell of frying bacon in the morning. i have that one hanging in my kitchen.
    i also like the one about only running when chased by a bear.
    and very recently i liked the one with the confidence/intelligence chart.
    ohhh, and there was one about quitting a job the day i quit my job last february.

  237. Nick says:

    I think I probably enjoyed the “Friday” comic the most. I can also be applied to all the other work weeks.

  238. Frizz says:

    My absolute favorite is “Freud vs. Jung.”

  239. Luwano says:

    Congrats Doug!!!

    4 years of chickenly cartooness! Woohoo!!

    Thank you very much!

    “Something Wicked” was a great cartoon which turned brilliant with the sequels.

    But my all-time favourite is “Friday”. That one was just ingenious!


  240. Ellie T! says:

    Congratulations, Doug! My favorite cartoon from the past year is “Pi”, primarily because it is hilarious, and secondarily because it’s dedicated to me. I’ll be sticking with you for all the years to come!

  241. Laurie Mair says:

    Congrats on 4 great years! Here’s to 4 more!!!!

    Your cartoons are always hilarious, but if I had to pick a favorite, it would have to be “Tigger.” I’ve always thought he was a tad to happy……..

  242. Leigh says:

    Sky Gnomes are my favorite for this year!
    I’ve been reading Chickens for 3 years now, I’m so glad you do this everyday!
    Have a great weekend, Doug.

  243. Melanie Berg says:

    Huzzah for you! Thanks for the regular pick me up! My fave this year was “Barack Obama”, and my all time favorite is still “raccoon versus moon.”

  244. Arlene Kelly says:

    Congatulations on 4 years down and many more to come. Great cartoons, and picking one is hard. However, it came down to what helped me through the work day. I really enjoy the work related ones most and have made my husband a big fan (and he in turn has corrupeted,er, introduced his workmates).Given some of the supervisors each of us have had, your Prod3000 cartoons really hit home. I especially enjoyed your November 17th cartoon-Excellence in Management. I had a supervisor like that and still remember the feelings that she brought to her staff. I was never late but that didn’t stop the “quick look at the watch” given each time one of us came in. I think she was disappointed that we were punctual. Sigh

  245. Heidi says:

    Doug – Usually my fav Chicken is the last one I read. But if I have to choose: “Writer Monkeys” still makes me laugh when I think about it. And Spork and Dawn of the Dead are the greatest of all time. Keep it up!

  246. tod says:

    Congrats on 4 years! I’ve been a reader for about 2. Every one is awesome, but I’d have to say “Video Games” is my favorite…because it’s so damn true. Take care!

  247. charybdis4000 says:

    Congratulations for four years of chickens, Doug!

  248. pardes says:

    I am delighted to have discovered you a few months ago. Now my day isn’t complete without a “savage chickens” post. Thanks!

  249. Budo says:

    Wow, four years already, keep up the excellent work! As for my favorite for this year, I love “Time-Saving Device.” Everyone at Zen got a chuckle out of it too!

  250. kerry says:

    Congratulations on the anniverary – love the chickens! While Happiness is a favorite, for me it comes close second to Impostor. What can I say? I’m a politics junkie ๐Ÿ™‚

  251. John says:

    I vote for Tigger and I drink LOTS of coffee!

  252. Joe D says:

    “Happiness” is probably my favorite Savage Chickens comic of all-time. So I vote for “Happiness.”

    Congrats on 4 years!!!

  253. Nikki B says:

    I loved ‘Happiness’, starring Happy Bear. :).

  254. Joe says:

    I loved “The Kessel Run”!!! Chickens and aliens criticizing Star Wars is brilliant! Keep up the crazy work.

  255. Sheri says:

    Love you so much! “Meh” wins for me. Thanks for doing this, you keep lost souls sane.

  256. Mike says:

    Congratulations on another year Doug!

    So many drawings to choose from, I can’t remember them all but I do love “Overheard in Tatooine”, one of the best definitely.

  257. Joanne says:

    I love so many, but it a random review of my “funnies” folder, I came across ‘Death Works from Home’. Funny!!!

  258. Georga says:

    I have many favorites, but Parenting ( is at the top, mostly because it is so something I would say to one of my kids.

    I love the Chickens Doug. Keep it up!

  259. Natasha says:

    I would have to say that Sleep Tight and Sleep Tight II are my favorite! (That bug is one crazy dude and changed my mind about bed bugs and what they REALLY want.) My vote is for either one of those. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Awesome on the 4 years!

  260. Fraser says:

    I totally love “Good Times”. Self-referential humour is so much about loving good times!

  261. willwot says:

    I don’t remember Steven Stills or Galighar being in any of them but yada, and cluck on, cluck on.

  262. Lorraine says:

    Pirate’s best friend/Scurvey Dog is my all time favourite. Congrats on year 4 from someone else in YVR trying to wish away the piles of dirty snow.

  263. TChuck says:

    Happy Anniversary, Doug!!!!

    Death works from home.
    I laugh everytime.

  264. Shane says:

    I loved the “Living Life” one- Fantasy and Reality-
    Fullest or Dullest?

    Love ’em all. Keep it up.
    Put a chicken on a bike!! That would be funny.

  265. CD says:

    I happen to really like chicken meh, mostly because meh is my teenaged daughter’s favorite word. I also like a million monkeys, and Death-Delete. Thanks for the morning laugh, with a side of the dark side

  266. Susan says:


    My favorite from this year is probably “Work is Easy” (

  267. Sarah says:

    Pi…. definitely Pi. I sat on my couch and laughed until my sides hurt.

    Doug, you make our lives brighter.

    Thank you!!!

  268. Adam says:

    I really like the one where you made the cloud a pirate upset about people looking for the silver lining. That makes me laugh.

  269. Lynn Marie says:

    Doug, I’m so glad I found you! I love waking up and laughing at your crazy cartoons! Tigger, Something to Live For, Reinforcement, Barry White 8, and Endorphins are a few of the many that made me laugh out loud. If I were maimed, tortured, and threatened with chocolate deprivation in order to make a decision on the best one, I think I’d choose Reinforcement! Keep up the great work! ๐Ÿ™‚

  270. Tomi says:

    Congratulations Doug!

    4 years of livin’ the creative dream. We love chickens!

    Tomi and Kevin in Vancouver

  271. Sean says:

    Congratulations!! Keep them coming Doug, these are what keep me going at work on many days. More Aqua Chicken!!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  272. Clay Colt says:

    For years when my (now 24 year old) son was a little kid, somehow that silly line from “Star Wars” about getting power converters from Toshi Station became a frequently cited family mantra – for no explainable reason. It just sounded so inane in & of itself, out-of-context. This was inthe 1990’s, and the second wave revival of the Star Wars Trilogy was in full swing, maybe. It was a meaningless phrase that took on no more significant meaning through repetition. But like any absurd, inexplicable bad habit, took on a life of its own. Blind repetition (like blind obedience) certainly did engrave that sentence deeply into the hard drive of out brains ands lives. And maybe somehow imbue it with prescience
    So to find it again, all these years later in – of ALL places! – “Savage Chickens”, in 2008! well, it re-affirmed that there must be some Transcendent Cultural Significance Which Passeth All Understanding to that line. Or a god of small things like George Lucas. Or maybe just something to the idea of Industrial Light & Magic, besides George Lucas. Or that the imaginary national boundaries we take so seriously between U.S.A. and Canada are merely constructs of small-minded nationalists at home & as well as abroad. Or maybe some subliminal meaning that will only become clearer as civilisation approaches ever-closer to the apocalypse. The need for power converters must strike a common chord both here in the belly o’ the beast and to our friendly and polite neighbours to the northwho are less-enamoured of empire than we are. Oh, Canada. Oh, Bama. Oh Toshi Station. Thanks for the power converters. We needed them. Now we just need a national/bio-regional infrastructure we can plug those power converters in to, and begin to turn this global depression around, with sustainable energy, sensible, equitable and socially responsible financial and economic policy, investment. And long, non-negotiable prison terms for Bush, Cheney and Rove – the ultimate “savage chicken” hawks.

  273. Nancy says:

    If I REALLY had to pick ONLY one, it would have to be Dance of Life!

  274. RogerR says:

    Difficult to choose from such a good selection. “Death Works from Home” is just so simple but very funny: same goes for “Pi”.
    Either of these represents the spirit of Savage Chickens to me.

  275. OttawaRiver says:

    Congrats on 4 years!

    So hard to choose between “Bears” and “Death” (not sure what that says about me…), but, as I need to choose one, it’s gotta be “Bears”.

    Thanks for all the laughs!

  276. Susan Wenger says:

    I vote for Million Monkeys. Love ’em all!

  277. Regina Holt says:

    It’s hard to pick a favorite!
    I love “Pi”, and “One Cloudy Day” from these lists, but, I also loved “Protest Rally”

    I often send your cartoons on to friends. It’s amazing how some of them really speak to a particular aspect of our lives. You’ve got something for Literature folks, Geeks, Philosophical types, very good mix of stuff.

    You have Excellent taste in humor!
    (tastes like chicken!!!)

  278. I just loved Time Travel Taxi!

  279. Lanni says:


    my favorite is Good Times!
    : )

  280. Christopher says:

    I tried checking back through the archives to decide. After only two months I came up with five favourites I couldn’t choose between. I’m going with Time Travel Taxi, it was one of my favourites and also gets my vote for “most wanted this to be real”. Thanks for the comics and congrats on four years.

  281. Karen Jacobs says:

    From the list I love “Death,” but my favorite is “How to find a Narcissist.” You have so many great ones though that I can’t decide which to get on a coffee mug. It would rock if you came out with a set or two or four. Thanks for the great laughs everyday.

  282. connie says:

    You always start my day with a laugh. We all love the Excellence in Management toons at work because Prod 3000 works here. Really!

    The gathering, on April 25th:

    It’s just as real as life itself. It happened to me, and the other guy ended in a hospital

  284. Andrew hull says:

    I’m gonna have to go with “Adversaries” (the cat and mouse one).
    best. cat. ever.

  285. cheryl says:

    Thanks for four great years, Chicken Man!

    My favorite is “Poetry Blog.” But you have so many great ones: “Bears” “Blue Sky” and “Death -working from home,” just for starters….

    Keep drawing!

  286. Thisisme says:

    “Parenting” was hilarious. Sick and wrong, but hilarious.

    5)Horror of ’84

  288. Brad D says:

    Cloudy Day made me laugh out loud-

  289. Mary Ann says:

    I love them all! But I am still searching for that elusive Inner Calm (
    Keep ’em coming Doug!

  290. wplmom says:

    Anyone who loves DDR and chickens has to appreciate the Dance of Life!

  291. Yulie says:

    Death is the best one; although tree hugger’s a close second. Keep up the great comics!

  292. Introspectre says:

    Congratulations in your fourth year! Please, keep it at least four years more! ๐Ÿ˜€

    I sign my posts with “Introspectre”, so I felt identified when I saw the “Introspection” cartoon (July 9, 2008). Somehow it was “my” cartoon ๐Ÿ˜‰

  293. rachel micija says:

    My favorite has to be Welcome to Happy Land with the Prozac plant dumping into the river, since I work for the local Water Authority. What’s the chance of us getting one of those plants to help our water supply? ; )

    (Also, as a Obama fan since 2004, I have to also add Barrack to the Future as a fave!)

  294. tammy says:

    I like all the star wars cartoons, but also love ‘treehugger’. I always share the chuck norris ones with my students (high school) because they think chuck norris is awesome… lol. keep on chickening!





  296. kim hill says:

    Thanks for all the laughs! My fave was Time Travel Taxi. But dontcha know…they are all a HOOT!

  297. Joe vince says:

    Writer monkey bay far was my favorite.
    I love the cartoons, congrats on 4 years, and good luck in the years to come.

  298. Katie says:

    4 years? Keep up the great work!

    My fave is definitely Death. Delete.

  299. Nora says:


    Hard to choose, but one of my favorites is “Mistaken Identity” from April 18, 2008!

  300. Big Bill says:

    Congrats on 4 great years of “chickens” Doug!! My all time favorite is “Bears”. Keep up the great work!!

  301. christa parish says:

    It’s so difficult to choose just one favorite. I’ve been posting all the work related ones in the office kitchen!
    2008 February 29
    How To Quit Your Crappy Job
    stands out for me this year!

    Happy Anniversary! And thanks for giving visuals for so many of the random thoughts that cross our minds!

  302. Renata says:

    Congrats on the 4 years!

    Hard to choose, but ‘Blue sky’ definitely gets a giggle

  303. ramonathepest says:

    Personally, I love them all; however, my favorite from this year was “Orientation”. Heaven help me if I go to hell!!

  304. Rita says:

    Definitely ‘Tigger’ is my favorite. Satisfyingly sick.

  305. fox says:

    My favorite cartoon is “How to Quit Your Crappy Job.” Probably because I wish I could follow those two simple steps, but I kinda have to pay rent. =P

  306. dig girl says:

    Being an archaeologist, my fav from the past year was definitely “Like an Egyptian”

  307. PG says:

    My favorite has to be The Kessel Run. I’m an astrophysicist, so I totally grok this.

  308. Romouz says:

    My Absolute Fav of all is “Monday Wish” it makes me laugh every time i see it!

  309. sean says:

    I’m sorry to admit this (being the father of two younger children, I was constantly bombarded with Pooh books, movies and games) but I loved the ‘Homocidal Tigger’. I couldn’t function for at least ten minutes I laughed so hard at work (they thought I was having a stroke). What macabre delight. Now I am going to look up a good therapist and make an appointment. Sigh.

  310. Randy B says:

    “The most wonderful thing about tiggers is…
    I’m the only one!”

  311. Gord says:

    Happy anniversary and keep up the great work. From the past year, “Million Monkeys” was my favourite.

  312. Dennis Negron says:

    Kiss Me would definitely be my favorite one. My teacher had it posted on her bulletin board and I would always just look and laugh.

    Congratz on four years.

  313. Kyle Arch says:

    Four years… That is quite an achievement! I love your cartoons, and hope you will continue to keep drawing them.

    I know that it isn’t saturday anymore, but I wanted to say that “Cloudy Day” is my favourite one. Thanks for the comics!

  314. Teri says:

    Introspection…I Hate introspection!!!!

    Dont we all!!!!

    *posted this one on my office door….beware i may be introspecting!!! haha

    Keep them coming!!!

  315. MissK says:

    Congrats on year number four, Doug!

    It’s very difficult to choose favorites, but FIRE! tops the past year’s list for me. I work at a daily newspaper and we have been given classes in the “fine art” of Tweeting (I wish I was joking) as part of our multi-platform strategy. I printed out and hung up FIRE! in our common area, and everyone who sees it cracks up.

  316. Michael says:

    Mine just misses the cutoff date, so I guess I’m just here to sing its praises:

    I write and teach philosophy for a living, and had always thought of the blank page as my mortal enemy. I love the inversion of that expectation here. Much joy has come my way from the Chickens.

  317. Gaia says:

    Congratulations from Rio de Janeiro(Brazil)!
    Thanks for making me smile.
    My favorite is “Good Times”.

  318. Johnett says:

    Happiness is my favourite. I used to be in a clown troupe and I used to do the makeup for the entire group. At times, drinking their blood sounded like a very good thing, indeed.

  319. Barb Wright says:

    I really liked “Good Times,” because it was subtle, yet ironic (don’t cha think?)…Best wishes on the comic – I hope to see more of Savage Chickens for many years to come.

  320. julianna says:

    Love love love the chickens!
    I never miss a day.
    “Happiness” is my favorite.

  321. Daniel Barba says:

    Happy anniversary, keep rockin’
    “Bears” !!! “Bears” !!!!

  322. momz says:

    My cartoon favorite was the one that started it all for you & for me. Fear Of Peter Gabriel. It is about my favorite Rocker of ALL time, best album, coupled with chickens! Also it shows how you have matured as a cartoonist & yet still maintained that subtle, dark, confrontational existentialism, all in one little yellow square. Thanks 3M for the stacks of weak adhesive & thank you Doug Savage for the years of laughter. Many happy more years at your art.

  323. AussiePeta says:

    My favourite from last year was Santa “Exposed”.

    Darth Vader as Defence against the Dark Arts is a close second. Actually they all appeal immensely, thank you so much.

  324. Adam says:

    4 years? Where does the time go?

    I have to profess my love for “Return to Happy Land”. Those smiling trees creep me out, but in a good way.

  325. mickey hennigan says:

    Love’m all! Death maybe a little more. Hope you keep it up for years to come, It would be worse the when we lost Carson, if you stopped!!!

  326. Gerard says:

    Congrats Doug! Your cartoons make my day!
    I thought Money vs Science was gold!

  327. Sabrina Mix says:

    My favourite is Tomato vs Ketchup.
