Webcomic: Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal

Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal is an episodic daily strip by Zach Weiner. The strip has only a few recurring characters, including God, Jesus, a fictional U.S. President, and a fictional Pope. Usually appearing in "voteys", the bonus panel beneath the comic, are the crazed, always-naked author and his long-suffering wife (and eventually, baby).

Much of the strip's humor comes from setting up a situation and then subverting either the established premise or the audience's expectations, often going with a Black Comedy punchline. The cartoonist is self-described as having the abilities of Gary Larson and a sex offender.

Zach also does videos under the name SMBC Theater. There's less sociopathy in them, though. (Or more, depending on your point of view.)

Compare The Perry Bible Fellowship. No relation to Chocolate-Frosted Sugar Bombs.
