I read a couple of the comics on the go comics site. Have you ever read any of the comments that people post? Some of them are mind-bogglingly stupid. Like repeating the punchline, or seeming to miss the point a) that it is a cartoon and b) that it is meant to be funny. One has to assume that the posters are just stupid.
