While the comic is single-panel and doesn't have an ongoing story, there are some recurring characters, including:
* The bar guys. Morose, grumpy, and unsociable (except with each other).
* The couch guys. The definition of arrested development.
* Bigfoot. He's on all the social networks, and he follows back.
New comics come out every Monday, because having to go back to work/school sucks.

Early strips tended to focus on depressing scenarios and {{black comedy}} while later strips have branced out to incorporate traditional comedy, sight gags and absurd situations.
