Crankshaft: I use mine to kill spiders in the basement.

Make all the fruitcake jokes you want, Crankshaft, you'll never be as hacky as The Born Loser.

  1. Question: is there a list somewhere of comic strip concepts which the syndicate or editors consider to be "Always Good For a Laugh" - in the sense that the strip doesn't necessarily have to even include a joke, or have anything to do with recurring characters; the mere mention of the thing is enough to make a good daily strip?

    For example:
    Around Christmastime: fruitcake
    Summer: golf
    2009: Twitter
    anytime at all: mothers-in-law, women shopping

    There must be plenty of other examples as well.
