Saturday Morning OYs – November 19th, 2022


Is anybody else bothered by the use of “interrogate” in Theory-laden political and social discourse?


If you’re having any uncertainty about the main pun (which comes about third in sequence), think brand name.


Remind you of the title of a contemporary pun-loving panel comic?

  1. What an amazingly rare experience: the squirrel actually cracked a separate, credible joke, instead of rehashing the main panel, or squirlsplaining the obvious.

  2. https://www.verbub.com/i/382195/directors-after-putting-fin-at-the-end-of-a-shark-movie-i “I have achieved comedy”.

    I am sure I have seen Fin before on a black and white shark-related film from ages ago – complete with visible fin – but can’t track it down. IMDb says that The Meg (2018, about a megalodon shark) ends with FIN.

    I’m not sure I get the socks one… is that a pun on Argyle socks? (If you google Gargoyle Socks, there is someone selling real socks by that name).

  4. Oops re odd posting style above. Try again with the text:

  5. This seems like an appropriate time to mention Angus McGonagle, the Gargling Argyle Gargoyle. Here he is gargling Gershwin gorgeously (with help from Mark Hamill):

  6. @narmitaj, yes I think it was a pun gesture to ‘argyle socks’. And from there, possibly a nod to “Argyle Sweater”, a panel comic that frequently builds on a pun.

  7. And looking closer at the cameras, I am not entirely sure what the scenario is. Is the “officer” one of the other cameras? Or is the talking camera on the phone with the police (and also maybe taking a picture of the offender)?

  8. CaroZ, I share your perplexity over the scenario with the camera-beings. My best take (tho flimsy on its face) was that the speech bubble belongs to a future scene, not pictured here, where that speaker is giving a witness statement to some Police.

    I am more bothered by the butchered spelling of “capisce” here…

    “Capisce” is better but not right either ,as it transalates as “does she unerstand” or a very formal “do you understand” sort of “doest thou understand”. The proper word is “capisci” pronounced “Ka-pi-shi” where both “i” are the short “i” as in “pit”. And yes it bothers me too.

  10. I think this is the first time I’ve ever laughed at a Dark Side of the Horse. Of course, this is the only place I ever see it.

    As for Argyle Sweater, I haven’t seen it for a couple of days because GoComics (and a couple of other sites) have been kaput.
