Gigglebit is Siliconrepublic’s daily dose of the funny and fantastic in science and tech, to help start your day on a lighter note.

Like any sector, technology has a serious side, and it is often issues within this serious side that make headlines or that organisations need to explore for their business. Malware! Data breaches! Cloud storage! Do I really need this software? Which candidate has the best IT skills for this job? And what the heck is fog computing?

With Gigglebit, we turn the spotlight on humorous and/or amazing content about science and tech, because sometimes the lighter side should be taken seriously, too.

Today, for the day that’s in it, we have a webcomic from The Oatmeal that any dog owner can relate to at this time of year. Though it was made for the 4th of July celebrations in the US, it rings truer on 31 October on the other side of the Atlantic.

Stay strong, faithful dogs of the world; Halloween will be over soon.
