Stupid Comics is a haven for stuff like this.  You can almost hear canned laughter playing when reading this mind numbing Flintstones panels.

For truly nerdy non-humour, it's hard to go past the "Bench Humor" thread on Ampage, a guitar amp fixing site. With pure tech comedy gems like this one:

Quote
A couple of years ago, a customer called to enquire about repairing his amplifier. As my secretary took the call I could see that she was becoming frustrated. She asked me to take the call. This customer had a *Petis* *amppifier*. I asked him the model of his amp and he was unsure. However, he did say that it had two big plungers on the front.I opined that I was sure the ladies enjoyed it. He said they did. Unfortunately the amp had the serial #'s ground off so I couldn't help him.

this featured on a recent big Twitter thread of 'the worst mid-2000s videogame webcomics you can find', which includes plenty of other execrable examples:

I can't get over that fucking weird drawing of Kramer, it's like the Tom Waits' corpse after a week in the river.

I've been watching some of the midday repeats on Challenge recently and some of the gags that Brucie et al are forced to spew out are really convoluted.

You're not wrong there. I always got the impression they were Bruce's idea as a leg-up to the girls to help them get on in showbusiness. He occasionally did it on The Price is Right too with equally unsuccessful results, usually because the premise was based on them flirting with him.

Fuck me, that Girlz 'n' Games cartoon, what the fuck? And the C+A+D, am I missing something?

It's a meme based around Tim Buckley's hamhanded attempt to introduce drama into his shitty gaming webcomic by making the main female character have a miscarriage. There have been many, many re-edits and parodies of this over the years. This one has Kramer as the final panel.

It's also based on another awful webcomic in that Twitter thread and someone's request that this bizarre drawing of Kramer become the final panel in every comic.

I think Orange cinema ads epitomise this, the kind of thing you'd smirk at once or twice, but if you had to sit though them in front of multiple films, resentment gradually developed into a bitter, burning hatred.

I agree, but I also remember the Val Kilmer one, which touched on the "difficult" reputation he genuinely does/did have, came out around the same time as the Extras Xmas special which had Clive Owen as a ridiculous sub-cartoonish diva which had no meaningful connection to any kind of reality, and it occurred to me that the former was actually a lot bolder im terms of both acting and writing.

At Cambridge station they've put up a little funny Fred Bassett-esque comic to liven up all the commuters

I'm pretty sure that Powerup Comics! was a parody of the form.

That one was an intentional spoof made by the members of another forum. I remember they were trying to keep it going as long as they could before anyone realised.



There's another slightly less subtle parody of Least I Could Do on the same site.

That's a recreation of an actual Web comic that I saw on Facebook the other day, can't recall the artist. Does that make  it more desolate or less?

There are many questions I have about the Civ comic, but I think the main one is whether the artist has ever actually seen a human woman before.

Really? Fuck me that raises it into stratospheric levels of pointlessness then. I'd be interested to see the original just to see if anything was lost in the transcription (if there even was anything to lose)

Nope, just a spot of gratuitous profanity which nullifies the potential excuse that it was aimed at small children.

It's amazing that no matter how many interpretations you can draw from that last scene they're all equally painfully unfunny, normally that should make something unfunny, funny for the wrong reason, but no.

I think that yellow blob is meant to represent a crowd of nerds staring at her breasts, which makes it such a monumentally bad artistic depiction that I have to give it some grudging respect.

I think there must be some sort of law stating that all webcomics about geeks *must* include that beyond-hackneyed Dreamworks-face raised eyebrow expression.
