    I read them as a kid but when I think about it, I never really laughed much. The only one I really like now is Doonesbury.

    Calvin & Hobbes was often laugh-out-loud funny.
    But I used to think the others were funny as a child.

    There are a few that I found funny... "Rose is Rose" has always been a favorite. I love Jump Start. There are a few others that I like, but I can never remember the names of them.

    I think they're meant to be more... cute/chuckle than like laugh out loud funny, anyway.

    Remember Bloom County? What was the rocker chick's name? She was hilarious.

    Boondocks is funny. But it's not even in the *funnies* anymore in our paper. They moved it to the viewpoint/politics section.

    Ah, Monkey, you're a woman after my own heart. I forgot about the legendary Far Side. *sob*

    Get Fuzzy is my current favourite, although Calvin and Hobbes will always be the best!

    I like Foxtrot, Get Fuzzy, and Brevity, which is a lot like Far Side, actually.

    Far Side, Bloom County and Calvin and Hobbes were my favorites. Seeing as how we never had a weekly paper at my house, I'd try and catch up at my grandparents or just get the books at the library. That way you didn't miss anything.
