2009 Brevity Box Calendar

( 2 )

Overview

William Shakespeare must have had a premonition of Guy Endore-Kaiser and Rodd Perry's comic strip when he said "Brevity is the soul of wit." With its sly sense of humor and ingeniously understated art, Brevity is not your normal comics fare. It features an eclectic cast of characters such as sporks, nerds, animals, or people in unusual yet relatable situations.

    I agree with the first guy...

    As the fine gentleman --i would have to assume that he's great-- so eloquently put it, this calendar is frustratingly awful to say the least, which is so unfortunate because i too was had at the vulture. I mean, talking animals are generally a slam dunk sale, but pie & todd seem to fail on that miserably. I wish them Good Luck with their 2010 attempt at homour. Peace be with you. One bit of advice though... BE MORE FUNNY!

    this calendar is awful!

    The vultures on the cover were what inticed me to buy... even at 75% off the original price. Because of that, i basically blew $5. This calendar does nothing more than upset me and my work colleagues to the point that we need to read ahead to determine if tomorrows pic is going to be even worse than todays! NOT FUNNY!
