    Dustpit Follies is webcomic about three friends, Francis, Jeff, and Joe, and what they do in the patio they rent out. Most strips end in a joke, but there are a few ongoing story lines.

    Tropes used in Dustpit Follies include:
    • Atlantis- Fran's harddrive is Atlantean, which he bought from a flea market for 10 bucks. It's actually an Atlantean escape pod
    • Author Appeal- A few of the comics are pretty much just endorsements for US Congressman and former presidential candidate Ron Paul.
    • Bigfoot, Sasquatch, and Yeti- Bigfoot shows up as the punchline in one comic.
    • Christmas Episode- It takes a break from the main plot to do a new version of Twas the Night Before Christmas
    • Cranky Landlord- When the rent's due he'll hound you till you pay, even if that means breaking a hole in the roof to drop in.
    • I Know Mortal Kombat- His vast experience playing video games makes Francis an excellent gunner on an alien spaceship. It also helped him learn to pilot the ship, though poorly.
    • Orphaned Series- The author hasn't updated it since March 2010.
    • Take That

    Joe It won't do anything I want it to do. I must have a virus or something.
    Francis That's not a virus, that's Vista.
