Funny Farm is a daily webcomic authored by Ryan Smith (R. Smith) and hosted by Keenspot. The comic details the lives of a group of anthropomorphic animals, who live in a boarding house owned by Ront and Mewn. The author has explained the apparent peculiarity of having humans and anthropomorphic animals coexisting. The main characters are in fact humans just like everyone else. It is merely in the mind of the reader that they appear as animals because this to some extent reflects their personal characteristics.
