    A candidate for Kansas state House and his XKCD-style recap of how he got way more donors than any other candidate in state history. Good stuff. Good stuff.

    I'm donating my $8.34 because he had a liger in that comic.

    OK, I'm old.
    Somebody want to translate XKCD and everything thereafter.

    Basically, it's a campaign ad in the form of a pretty long comic. I'd recommend clicking the link, because it's pretty entertaining.

    I liked it a lot.

    Awesome. I'll donate $8.34 to this guy, easy. I never thought Kansas politics could be so hilarious (aside from the usual Sam Brownback-Pat Roberts kind of way, of course).

    He's a former newspaperman, and his wife currently works at one.

    What is an information architect, exactly? And how did he get a job doing that in Kansas?

    Brilliant stuff, I'd say he's due for a visit to one of the cable news shows, but I highly doubt they "get" the cartoon.

    I would love to see Jon Stewart or Colbert sit down with him, especially since he represents my hometown.
