Sunday Funnies – LOLs, June 12th, 2022

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:

Citizen Kane took me a moment! The Old Yeller I don’t get, but I don’t recall much about the movie. Maybe my favorite here is Vertigo.

I’m recalling (but not its name) a comics-page feature which used photos of everyday household objects manipulated and posed, to fit a comic caption. I can imaging them trying to do this same thing with real paper clips. But probably the drawings are a better way to go.

Perhaps over-familiar as a mental-health joke, but enough original twist to make it funny.

One (and done) from Andréa, and extracted from a Loch Ness synchro:
Sent by Dana K, who says “Same thing Abe Lincoln was getting at when he spoke of “government OF the people and BY the people and FOR the people”.
