The worst comic in the world is about a dog named Fred Basset. Written by a Scotsman, he seems to have forgotten that jokes are supposed to be within the panels. Try and find the punchline in the above strip, just try. Is wag supposed to be the word that gets you chuckling? The complete lack of originality? Maybe it’s supposed to be ironic. You know, so unfunny it’s funny? But apparently I’m the only one who can’t find the humor:
Any reader who has ever been a “dog’s best friend” will recognize and love Fred. Fred is a wry and witty observer of life, finding funnybones and turning up smiles on three continents.
Which continents? One of them has to be Antarctica. Just has to. The next time Fred digs up a funny will be the first time.
