Then contribute some witty ideas? The content tends to be a bit on the esoteric side. You have to know about Apple's Cube. You have to remember stories from weeks back about why there's a Microsoft Home Server in the house. And I do find myself scratching my head, wondering what some of them mean, until someone else shows up to explain. They are, in that way, educational. And a bit fun, once you get them.

I think that what many people expect of a comic is that they should be able to "get it" in a few seconds and go on. (Mary Worth fans may leave the room now.) Focus Shift would seem to be more of a challenge than that. Which is perfectly fine with me.

I think when most people say that they don't understand the comics it's a polite way of saying that the comics aren't funny.
