Good old-fashioned pineapple hate

BillR sent this in and said “I know pineapple on pizza is a contentious issue (I’m in favor, myself) but what’s the joke here?” And hdh sent it and had a related thought: “Okay does this have something to do with the domino effect or pineapple on pizza controversy?”

I agree it’s probably just a gesture of pineapple-hate.  But I can’t quell the urge to take “gruesome”  as “grew some”  despite not having any available grammatical quirk that would make that sensible.  

Hey, not avoiding brand names!

Sunday Funnies – LOLs, May 22nd, 2022

The caption does a good job of picking up on some terminology that is deep deep geezerdom, beyond even the floppies themselves.

And I recently noticed some folks referring to the 💾emoji as “save file” rather than anything about “disk”.

From the “Ain’t it the truth!” brand of complaint humor:

The dog is up to something, hmm?

Bonus Bliss, with a somewhat less communicative canine:

Saturday Morning Oys – May 21st, 2022 

From Andréa:

And which sort of meaning is invoked in “Check your privilege”?

The person sending this in said Today’s “Rubes” would qualify either for a Sunday Funnies or a
Saturday OY post
. So which one won out? Aha, Andréa found it too and says “OY (also, EW – and such a waste when folks are starving in the world)”.
A couple of OYs from Darren, who says “The unshelved is old, but I enjoyed the extra time to get it” (Old inasmuch as “This classic Unshelved striporiginally appeared on May 9, 2011.”)

… and “Along with 10 seconds before I got the loose parts ‘remorse'”:

Clips (bonus cidu/amuse)

Citizen Kane took me a moment! The Old Yeller I don’t get, but I don’t recall much about the movie. Maybe my favorite here is Vertigo.

I’m recalling (but not its name) a comics-page feature which used photos of everyday household objects manipulated and posed, to fit a comic caption. I can imaging them trying to do this same thing with real paper clips. But probably the drawings are a better way to go.

WP tech check. L:et’s see if a WEBP image works in a WP post. It’s a bit tiresome converting them.

Ecce Homo

Thanks to Targuman, who says “Rather than Charles, wouldn’t he be any Tom, Dick, or Herodotus? He clearly got the human half of each so he is just…human.”

Meanwhile this has sent your editor to the dictionaries to figure out why Minotaur and Centaur weren’t both bullish.

But the CIDU factor mostly remains “Why Charles?” Or whatever leaves you scratching your head here…

(I was also going to ask why WuMo doesn’t appear on WaPo; but it turns out, it does. 🤷‍♂️ )

After a while, we scooted out over the pool and were eating pizza on the high dive, in the rain

Thanks to Targuman, who offers this as not as CIDU but a physics challenge. “The comic is easy enough to understand (although having been a Jeremy and a pool rat, I can NOT imagine using napkins at a pool, no matter the location), but what is insane is the length of that board! Can someone with math skills figure out how long that would be in real life? A ‘high dive’ is 3 meters tall and the board looks at least three times as long as it is high…” However, do we know the math to apply to cartoon physics?
