Malology = "bad study" or "evil study".
Maniagnosis = "insane knowledge". The pseudo-Latinate term for mad
Both _The New Journal of Malology_ and _Maniagnosis_ are respected
journals in the evil scientific community. The _Journal of Malology_ became
the _New Journal of Malology_ when the editorial staff was devoured by
plague-bearing zombies, which then became the new editors. (See Narbon,
H.B., "Effects of Systematically Tearing Limbs Off the Rotting Carcasses of
_New Journal of Malology_ Editors, With a Detailed Explanation as to Why
This Is a Very Bad Idea", _Transthanatology Today_, Vol. 33.6, pp. 47-60.)
Basically, I made up mad-science terminology in bad Latin a while ago, and
I'm trying to find a use for it. Cartoonists have no life.

to mention hilarious, imagination. Few people in the world who are not
cartoonists can just take anything - a wierd day at work, an ambiguous test
question from a first-hour Economics test, a toilet demon, whatever.... and say
to themselves, "hey, this could make a really funny comic".
I find my best ideas usually come to mind while I'm loading the dishwasher. It
makes it a heck of a lot more interesting.
