I’m delighted with how the Bizarro literalizes the idea of the fourth wall.
So then the problem-solvers’ question is “what are we seeing on the left side of the drawing?” And the answer should be “The adhesive side of the wallpaper”.
The contributor sending in the Macanudo points out that it’s a very old joke (probably could be found in Mutt & Jeff 🙂 ), but this is still a very good realization of the idea.
And they pair well because the Macanudo is at the other end of sticking to the metaphorical.
P.S. Wayno prepares two versions of each Bizarro he makes, a squarish panel and a more horizontal strip format. Occasionally in his weekly blog he shows the variation, and in the week covering this cartoon it was the one getting that treatment. Here is that alternate image:
I had a stationary bike. After a few years, I had done 12,500 miles on that bike — halfway around, at the equator. But I wondered what degree of north latitude would be12,500 miles long (so I could see what cities were at that latitude). I thought I’d figured it out, but wanted validation; it had been a long time since I was in junior high. We were having parent-teacher conferences, so I asked the 7th grade math teacher. She took the problem and said she’d get back to me. Never did. When my daughter asked about it, she said she’d lost the problem — but didn’t ask for another copy.
I repeated this with math teachers each year. Never got an answer.
Can you finnish this problem?
Thanks to Chemgal for this Zits, which earns a LOL-Ewww!
And here is your LOL-CIDU-Geezer for the week!
Another CIDU-LOL, or Arlo-LOL, and the one calling for the category tag about “There must be a popculture reference that will clear it up instantly” — if you can see putting the chess world in “popculture”. Yes, something upsetting happened recently in the world of chess, and then Twitter has its way with answering some of the questions raised.
Thanks to dollarbill for this DSOH, featuring one of their favorite tropes, counting sheep. See also the posts in Random Comments and Site Comments on his idea for a structured-commenting game. (Please respond there, not so much here.)
