False Knees is a webcomic (originally a newspaper comic) by Joshua Barkman, which has been running since 2011. The comic's notable features include its often detailed drawings of the animals and plants featured in each comic and the dissonant nature of its characters' conversations.

This webcomic contains examples of:
- Art Evolution: Readily apparent when comparing the earlier strips to the more recent ones, as Josh has also shifted his subject matter from humans to nature, using more references when doing so.
- Art Shift: Occasionally used as part of a punchline. Invoked in the 'How to Draw' strips, where a creature is drawn with more detail in each panel, until the last panel is a complete drawing with a quote exemplifying a random, usually negative personality trait.
Specific strips contain examples of:
- Foul Flower: A non-anthropomorphic example is suggested in the 'House Plants' series of strips, where the titular plants are implied to be reaching for a knife and connecting the water in a bathtub to an electrical outlet.
