Sure, Dagwood likes doughnuts. But what’s he zooming around for if there’s no doughnut cart? From Phil Smith III and larK.
I get that the babysitter shouldn’t be sleeping on the job. But “pay up”?
Why is she giving it five stars if she doesn’t like it? I get that humor often (usually? always?) comes from the contrast between what you would expect to happen and what’s actually happening, but I don’t understand what’s happening here.
From Jack Applin who says “I accept that fashion and fascin’ are homophones, but I don’t know what fascin’ is.”
A friendly reminder to avoid political arguments; we’re just trying to understand the comic.
This isn’t really a CIDU. Given this comic’s schtick, I assume the joke is that he’s attacking Loretta because she’s taken something classy (classical music), and made it dumb and low class by playing it on the bongos.

Is there some sort of pun or cleverness associated with thinking of fixing a car like a medical operation? Or is the humor in that a woman might change a tire, rather than a man?
From Stan: “Have humans evolved into lizards? Is this a suggestion that Godzilla wrecked the Colosseum? It was an earthquake that led to the destruction, so what do their “ancestors” have to do with this?”
From Philip, who asks “Are they going to tickle her? Why?”
