"Cyanide and Happiness is a daily webcomic. Unlike many other popular webcomics, it has no common storyline and no consistent plot. It however has a variety of daily insights, jests or purely satirical 1 - 12 frame comics...

The visual style of Cyanide and Happiness is very minimalist and typically coloured stick figures only with occasional props... Generally, these are only present when required for the punchline of the comic. In the majority of the comics, there is only a whitebackground...

The humour in Cyanide and Happiness is often highly satirical and parodic, touching on a variety of subjects including drugs, sex, religion, and popular culture..."

"The style of Cyanide and Happiness is best described as dark, cynical, often offensive, and exceedingly irreverent... The comic does not always have a definite punchline in each strip, or may have several panels of "awkward silence" after (or instead of) the punchline, with characters simply staring at each other.

There are few recurring characters and virtually no characterization, with characters often acting irrationally or nonsensically.

The lack of characterization is supported by the primitive drawing style. Characters rarely have names, and are usually only distinguishable by the colors of their shirts... The male characters almost always have no hair... Female characters are distinguishable by their long hair and chest size, often used to comedic effect..."
