The webcomic Irritability
combines the fantastic with the realistic. Commonplace are things such as people taking "adventurer" as an actual career, HMOs requiring their clients to wear elemental damage rings to prevent damage from rockslides, giant octopi rampaging around college campasses yelling "ERROO!", and a boat made out of a giant hollowed out Cheeto.
Started as a story that the author thinks is bad
, and later made into a newsprint comic in The Daily Texan in 1998, it then was moved to the author's website.
