I’ll be honest. I did not get today’s Chugworth Academy at first. This didn’t really surprise me. While I read Chugworth every update, in general I enjoy the artwork more than the writing. It’s just a style that doesn’t jell with me.

Guy surfs Internet. Guy finds webcomic. Webcomic is strange and frightening beyond belief. Guy sends link to friends (kinda like when you find something really stinky you make your friends take a whiff). Friend finds strip he likes. Friend starts forum thread. Thread grows out of control. Spill out into other strips. Geek reads other strips, makes post about the whole thing here and there you have it.
