Do not email me asking to promote your Kickstarter campaign.
Do not email me with grammatical errors or typos.
Do not expect diplomacy. The Oatmeal is a one man operation, and this gives me the right to say horrible things to you if it pleases me.
You may even have a valid point or fantastic insight, but this won't stop me from calling you terrible names and emailing you pictures of horse penises.
Do not suggest additional words to be added to my misspelling comic. Ten is enough.
Do not email me and say that I look like Dennis from It's always sunny in Philadelphia.
Do not email me to tell me why manhole covers are round.
I know why they're round; I included the question because it's a good example of a brain teaser.
Do not read my comic on how to use a semicolon and then scour my website for places you think I should have used one.
Do not email me because I offended you. If you're the type of person who is easily offended,
then you're not someone I'm interested in talking to, ever.
Do remember that this site is for fun. If you don't understand satire don't email me.
Do not email me with suggestions for comics about things that bug you.
Every human on earth who has ever had a gripe with anything has suggested I make a comic about it.
Lastly, my website gets millions of readers every month, so I get a shitload of email.
I currently have close to 10,000 unread messages in my inbox
so if you message me and I don't reply please understand
that it's not because I'm mister fancy-pants-comic-artist-too-fancy-to-reply, it's simply because it got lost in the mix.
Also if I actually replied to my email with the time and attention it deserved I'd have no time left to draw comics.
Update: my email address is no longer publicly available on this site.
