Holy cow, a “Cornered” that actually made me laugh! We must be in the End Times.
From an ancient joke book I used to have …
TEACHER: What do you know about nitrates?
STUDENT: They’re cheaper than day rates.
And this exact pair was a classic example for explaining “juncture” in phonology.
. . . and when those two guys’ve finished eating their nitrate-loaded hot dogs, they’re visited by The Exercisist . . .
So it took that Far Side almost 40 years to make it here?
Mark, it took a wrong turn at Albuquerque.
It would seem “The Exercisist” is almost a geezer reference, isn’t it? Not sure how many people under 45 would recognize that artwork.
I thought nitrates grew from the ceilings of caves while nitrites grew from the floors…
“Not sure how many people under 45 would recognize that artwork.”
It’s considered a classic. Like the African Queen was to us.
What artwork? Is that an iconic scene?
I’m well over 45 and *I* don’t recognize the artwork.
Google: the exorcist iconic scene
(the URLs of the pics are way too long to put in here and they then send me into moderation. It’s lonely in there.)
