Apparently it's true, according to this fantastic psychology finding. Basically what it comes down to is this: shit that doesn't make sense forces us to think harder. Oh, and the bald soprano always wears her hair in the same style.
The article mentions Franz Kafka and David Lynch in particular. The drawing of Kafka above is by R. Crumb. He illustrated Introducing Kafka, a fact that makes the book alone worth while.
And below, a statue of him from Prague, Czech (his old digs).

First we have Nietzsche Family Circus. By that I mean clips from the comic with randomized Nietzsche quotes such as "Thoughts are the shadows of our feelings, always darker, emptier, simpler." I am sure I would enjoy the site a lot more if I had ever actually been a fan of Family Circus, but still, it's very cute.
My absolute favorite though is Garfield minus Garfield, which is exactly that. The original comics, with Garfield erased.
