    Matthew Inman, who started the web-comic The Oatmeal. The name originates from the nickname he used on Quake as a kid – ‘Quaker Oatmeal’


  2. Mathew Inman, The Oatmeal.com From Quaker Oatmeal,which also happened to be his Quake nickname.

    Matthew Inman the creator of the oatmeal website.
    Apparently he hated oatmeal and used ‘Quaker oatmeal’ as nickname while playing Quake. That is how the website gets its name.

    Matthew Inman of The Oatmeal (pictured here with I believe is an Alot).

    he used to play the Quake video game a lot when he was younger, and used the nickname “Quaker Oatmeal”, which is where the website’s name comes from.

    Oatmeals – Matthew Inman.
    Some funda that he doesn’t like oatmeal, but is a cereal killer.
    and that used the “Quaker Oatmeal” alias on quake.

    Well shit, that was a wolverine, not an Alot. And good timing – today (24th Sept) is his birthday!

    I’m done grinding through lists of webcomics. Who knew there were somany thousands of them?
    It kinda looks like “Toothpaste for Dinner”, but there’s no way that’s “Drew”.
    “Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal” seemed like a logical try but that doesn’t look like Zach Weiner.
    From there, it just gets worse “Webdonuts”, “Red Meat”, They’re all just wrong.

    Maybe I spoke to soon. The riding of bears isn’t totally alien to Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal. Maybe I just can’t find a good pic of Zach.


  15. This is Matthew Inman of Oatmeal

    Okay final answer: Matthew Inman from The Oatmeal.
    and I must disagree about it being an easy question.
