Fly, You Fools! is an Indian webcomic about life, and its irritations. It uses photos-turned-into-comics to push its misanthropic take on Indian life, onto an unsuspecting public (The public is always unsuspecting, in such sentences. Why?).

The comics are updated about twice monthly. Sometimes. Be sure to subscribe to get comic alerts. Or you can follow the comic on Twitter.

The site has been ooh’ed and aah’ed in major newspapers, TV channels, chai shops around the country and Pinky aunty next door is a big fan. You can read all about it in the Fly You Fool Blog.

Now here are some pseudo-FAQs

Q. Why “Fly You Fools”? Who’se flying?
A. No one. Domain names are hard to find. This one was available.

Q. Can I copy the comics on my site, or print them or make them my wallpaper or something?
A. Yes you can. All the work here is under a Creative Commons license. You are free to download and reuse any of the comics. As long as it’s not for commercial use. If you want to post a comic on your own blog, use the embed html code below each comic.

Q. Damit, but I want to make money out of it. Is there any way?
A. Yes there is. Contact the author and work something out with him. It’s very cheap.

Q. Whose photos are these? Is it even legal?
A. Most of these photos have been taken by me. Otherwise I ask the photographer’s permission before using a photo. So yeah, it’s legal enough. If you have a photo with potential to be a hilarious comic send it over to me and we’ll work something out.

Q. Are these actual Frequently Asked Questions?
A. Well, technically these questions have NEVER been asked. I’m just putting down some “In case someone did, what’ll they ask” questions. ICSDWTAQ’s.

Q. In case I don’t find your comic funny or am insulted by it, should I send death threats, put up a prize for anyone who brings your head then go out and burn some flags and generally be a bad person?
A. No.

Q. I want to read more about this blog’s history and the inspirations or whatever. Where?
A. You can go through the Fly You Fools blog.

    Like your tweets and the comics. The name ‘Fly You Fools’, inspired by LOTR ?

    what the hell is this Mr.?
    If you don’t know how to respect others religion then don’t do but why the are you insulting Hindus sentiments?..huh?..we demand you to remove that comic about cow..
    otherwise we will fight against you in the court…You have hurt the feelings of Many Hindus n within two days if you don’t regret n remove the comics then We will take a huge agitation against you…

    The so mentioned link is offensive as its against a certain class of people…you can’t just tell that “Its not because of an action against cow slaughter but because no one cares”
    and for this reason you better remove that article off!

    Being a blogger u might every single celeb involved can complain dis way but dat’s a personal issue…u are not supposed to make a joke on a Hindus… and so u better take that thing off as soon as you can!!!

    Hey man, u r too good. Love to meet you. i am based in Mumbai 9820113641. I feel your kind of humor can be applied to change Indian-attitudes in wholesale (we are full of pretensions everywhere)…. maybe starting with our polity.

    Honestly, give some credit to Tolkien.
    If you don’t know who that is, shame on you for using ‘Fly, you fools’ as the domain name.
