Nice to meet a dragon these days that isn’t a Game of Thrones nor a Wagnerian dragon.


More evidence for the idea that any philosophical system extended too far develops problems.


It’s in the detail!


The allusion surely does not need explication here at CIDU!


Okay, we’ll allow an Ewww-LOL this time!

Sender Dana K and I were in minor disagreement over whether the word-play element here is pun-like enough to count as an OY. “Neg/Q Scope Ambiguity” is certainly there potentially in the 3rd panel; but it’s not clearly intentional, and even less the point of the gag.

Here’s a nice LOL-Eww from Boise Ed:

This Moderately Confused sent in by Rob is in what we might dub the “foibles funnies” genre:

Out of season

Two funny bits that seem like they might belong more to winter publication. The Kliban of course is a reprint from ages ago, so that makes sense. And the Liz Climo is funny any time. Also noticed by Andréa and used in a comment!

We can’t let a Whack-a-Mole reference go by without linking to Cameron Esposito’s “Guacamole” bit! (In case the “start at” feature in the link doesn’t work, you might want to skip an intro and jump to about 1:40.)

This LOL-Meta from Argyle Sweater surprises me a little by taking it for granted that kids that age would tease (or try to insult) each other in the terms Sara used.

I just need to say I’m impressed how he selected and wrote out the twenty-five names.

And a thorough Ewww-LOL:

Here’s the same vet who treated the cute “I’m a little horse”.

A link-only reference to this Medusa Far Side:

That’s quite a surprise!

“Thought I was being ghosted.”

A slightly Ewww-flavored LOL:

This might take a moment as a Quickie-CIDU before resolving as a LOL:

Bliss has been running an excellent series with the dog and/or cat in anthropomorphized domestic settings. Here is a good example:

TBH, this was for me more a chuckle than a full LOL. But I was wondering if others also see an analogy between the point here and our thread about interpreting “The exception proves the rule” from early January.

For that matter, what sort of thing was a “buck” in that saying, by the time HST talked about it?

Thanks to Boise Ed for this Ewww-LOL!

Okay, okay, Reply All is an acquired taste I guess.

Is anyone ready to name a particular Raymond Chandler title being quoted? Or is Bliss just happily riffing on the voice?

From Le Vieux Lapin:


And still from Le Vieux Lapin, and for that matter still about bees:


Le Vieux Lapin still on a roll!

This linked (not copied nor link-embedded) Far Side provides an explanation for one of the great Netherlands floods. Link probably not valid after 2021/12/08.

An Ewww-LOL from Reality Check:

And another Bliss. This maybe should have counted as a CIDU, if there’s much doubt what his special message would be …

Yet Another Ewww-LOL from Kliban:

Nice twist, maybe LOL-worthy? It takes the over-familiar observational-humor point “fitted sheets are hard to handle” but adds a factor which is gonna interfere with anything at all he tries to do.

I guess the premise is mostly “analogy”.
