Excellent Snow Removal Strategy [Found here.]

At least one of our readers wants more giraffes, according to last week’s poll, so there you go, bro.
AXE COP is the most awesome thing we’ve seen on the internest in years.
Imagine Calvin as the author of a comic strip, and this is what you get. Created and written by a 5 year old, his 29 year old cartoonist brother puts it into action in glorious black and white.
Ya gotta read it from the beginning, Episode 1. (Episode 0 comes later.) Unfortunately the website is slow to load, and has some other quirks about it, but it’s worth the time.
Superhero Sockarang is my personal favorite.
He shows up in Episode 5:
“Sockarang came to a try out when Axe Cop was preparing to go on a mission to fight Bad Santa and the Evil Flying Book. Sockarang has socks for arms, and he can shoot them out and they return to him like boomerangs. In his fight with Bad Santa he got some of Bad Santa’s blood on him and he got Bad Santa powers, which he used for good.”

Mr. Zero. He’s Nothing. Really Nothing.
Although he’s Nothing, he wants everyone to pay attention to him, to pay attention to Nothing.
He knows Zip, Nada, and Everything That Isn’t. No one knows him, yet too many people understand him. He says Nothing to everyone.
Mr. Zero is very intelligent, and agrees to Nothing because he can deliver it. He can give you Nothing as well. He can make sure that you have plenty of Nothing, so much so that you can only give it away, even though nobody wants it.
Unfortunately, Mr. Zero demands a lot. He is capable of taking everything and turning it into Nothing, which is exactly what you will get back if you give him anything.
He creates Nothing, and he sells it, too, at a very high price.
The only way to stop Mr. Zero is to give him Nothing.
