Buttersafe is a [[NotableGagPerDayWebcomics gag-a-day]] [[{{Webcomic}} webcomic]] by Ray Castro and Alex Culang. It can be found [[http://buttersafe.com/ here]].

'''Recurring Characters''':
* '''Saddest Turtle''' and his friend '''Jolly Octopus'''. The Saddest Turtle is a rather naive creature who likes playing the guitar.
* '''[[ExtremityExtremist Punch Monster]]''', a purple monster with one massive arm [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin who punches people.]]
* '''Skeleton Harvester''', a giant monster who harvests people's skeletons. Appears infrequently, but his first appearance was iconic enough that he is one of Buttersafe's most famous characters.
* '''Veiny Dog''', a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin dog with very prominent veins]].

There is also a {{Twitter}} [[http://twitter.com/buttersafe feed]], which they use to announce updates/discuss what they've been eating (usually in the same tweet).

!!''Buttersafe'' provides examples of:

* AntiHumor: In [[http://buttersafe.com/2010/04/29/a-guy-walks-into-a-bar/ "A Guy Walks Into A Bar"]].
** AntiHumor is fairly common in the dry world of Buttersafe. For example, [[http://buttersafe.com/2009/06/18/fishing/ "Fishing"]]. [[DontExplainTheJoke The joke is]] [[spoiler:that from the text in the first panel you expect some sort of hilarious shenanigans to go down. You expect these shenanigans (of the hilarious variety) to go down right after the guy says he's got one - say, he has difficulty reeling it in, the boat capsizes, whatever - so when it cuts right to the elephant being sanguinely in the boat with no problems experienced at all (nor indeed any indication that this is at all outside the norm) this goes against your expectations, and thus humour is born]].
* BlessedWithSuck: A man's having his wife be the most beautiful woman in the world turns out to be this in [[http://buttersafe.com/2008/04/15/arbitrary-potato-and-the-most-beautiful-woman-in-the-world/ "Arbitrary Potato and the Most Beautiful Woman in the World"]], because Arbitrary Potato is a capricious and arbitrary potato.
