Andréa sends these in. Is there an accent where “Potter” sounds like more like “Putter” than it does here in the midwestern U.S.?

Sunday Funnies – LOLs, February 19th, 2023
Here are two from dollarbill (and a third one we happened upon) with the 4th-wall or meta- theme of characters knowing they’re living in a cartoon. He mentions he has been “wading through J. C Duffy‘s humongous almost daily blog posting of comic/photos/short musings beside them sometimes,” which go back years. “Fusco Brothers is just one of his outputs. The number of fly-in-the-soup variations is staggering.” CIDU has sometimes featured Duffy’s Lug Nuts, somehow strikingly different in graphics appearance yet very recognizably his work.
Does this make you feel like Dark Side of the Horse is by now influencing successor generations?
Although most cats manage without mechanical mousetraps.

An OY from Andréa:
Andréa spotted this one for us:

Shared by Boise Ed, enjoyed by this Florida native.
And check out this previous CIDU LOLs post for Ed’s intro to Shrimp and Grits
But TBH the premise is faulty — is she really going to go pick up a book instead, in the moment?
But is that true?? Questions can be raised about the background view.
Or was this an Oy?
This is here as a LOL but almost went into the Oopsies. The “related products” message from Amazon doesn’t ever appear full-screen as drawn here. It was enough to throw Pam off, who sent it in as not-fully-understood.
Here is a picture of the real Erwin S, and I think the cartoon has a pretty good likeness. We should also note a thank-you to contemporary physicist, Twitter celebrity, and YouTube presence Sean M Carroll, who when explaining the famous thought-experiment says there is a vial of fast-acting sleeping-gas, and when we look for the cat’s condition the choices are Asleep and Awake.
Or top hats, as used by magicians?
Sent in by Dan Sachs, who asks “Are these supposed to be KFC buckets?”; and by Targuman, who brings up that the brims and stripes raise issues for the buckets view.

Somewhat imperfect, okay, but I do like the idea of the Knicks setting up a patsy opponents team, or a practice team, known as the Knacks.

Jan’s dating adventure continues. This seems to use a pun on an unspoken characterization.
And it is rather cute to think about how the cymbals can be incorporated into a password. Probably no more annoying than when the form has no way of communicating the legal symbols it will accept to your secure-random-password generator.
Saturday Morning Oys – October 9th, 2021
Boise Ed recommends Doc Rat, and this Oy from the October 1 front page at Docrat.com.au was more available than others.
And indeed Brevity is generally going to yield up some species of OY, as here:
Snowman and Dog
Because it’s funny to imagine a snowman being blind? I sure hope there’s more than that.
Dog Date Afternoon (Synchronicity)
