Don't let my ratings fool you, this site has excellent content.

The Good:
* Free-form style comics. The artist takes the space required, and blends the panels nicely together.
* A unique perspective. He has a clear sense of wonder about the world, and has the tallent to portray this excitement in a humorous way.
* Content that matters. Many of the comics are swing from their humor to a potent relational truth.

The Bad:
* It is surprisingly non-intuitive to traverse. It isn't clear why it strays so far from the tried and true formulas.
* The art style is quite unappealing. It only works for the content that is intended to be weird/gross.
* Ad placement is excessive and distracting

The Oatmeal gets my "like", but it could be so much more.

too many spam sites and broken links displayed, they need to clean up the search results other than traffic-related sites displayed on the first page. how about they request additional info at the search text entry.
