Welcome to Lee Lorenz's world.

Rob gives guidance and all sorts of "material" to Bucky, a temperamental cat, who clearly wears the fur pants in the family. Satchel, a good-hearted pooch, plays neutral, but usually ends up on the receiving end of Bucky's mischief.
"Thanks for Get Fuzzy, the funniest comic strip on planet Earth. Sweet-natured Satchel Pooch and the utterly crazed Bucky B. Katt are much more fun than Odie and Garfield." --Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly

F Minus makes the grade.
Creator Tony Carrillo brings us a profoundly funny strip that asks the following questions: Why are we here? What is life all about? Can I take only one shower per week if it's seven times the normal length?
This very funny, quirky comic strip was chosen by more than 200,000 college students as the winner of the mtvU Strips Contest.
F Minus is a strip short on life lessons, precious moments, and pearls of wisdom. It tackles life's serious issues, pins them to the ground, and steals their lunch money. Then it feels a little bit guilty and gives some of it back.
"I draw my material from my experiences at a wide array of failed careers," says Carrillo. "Over time, I have worked as a pizza cook, Web site designer, dancing costumed character, portrait artist, insurance drone, waiter, custom framer, camel ride attendant at the zoo, and the guy at the airport that waves orange wands at the airplanes. As varied as these jobs were, eventually I had the profound realization that they all had two important things in common: each offered a wealth of comedic inspiration and there was always a creepy guy named Larry."
Life isn't fair. But it sure is funny in F Minus.
* Carrillo began his drawing career while attending Arizona State University. F Minus appeared in the college newspaper, The State Press, for two years.
* In December 2004, the strip was named the winner of the 2004 mtvU Strips Contest, as chosen by judges Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert, and David Rees, creator of Get Your War On, as well as more than 200,000 online voters.
