Here on The Toybox, we usually stick to posting gadget news and reviews.

But in honor of the impending weekend, I thought I would mix the pace up a bit and post some gadget-related humor.

The Oatmeal is a hand-drawn humor site by Seattle-based web designer and developer Matthew Inman. More and more often, I end up landing on his site for the latest iteration of a series of funny, mildly offensive sketches about...well, everything.

Most of them aren't appropriate for this site. But a few...well, they hit home in a special ZDNet-flavored way.

Here are a relevant few I'd like to pass along:

A warning: if you are offended by crude humor and language, these links are not for you.

But if you aren't...well, Happy Friday.

Topics: Printers, Browser, CXO, Hardware

    I wasn't aware of this site. There is some pretty humorous stuff there.... and some of it is sadly true.
