Another of the recent Doc Rat suggestions. Jack Applin sent it in and thought “Perhaps this refers to a commercial well-known in Australia?”
That’s the artist’s title for this one, as pointed out by Boise Ed, who further points out that we have no idea how that can be an organ-donor card.
Thanks to Jack Applin for sending this in.
BTW, the cartoonist’s title for this is “Sole food”.
Chak says “I know this is supposed to be a pun, but I’m hoping some of our Aussie readers will tell me what it is. ” I agree it has to be a pun — in fact the artist’s home blog gives the title “Ram home the pun” — and I’m no more able to say just what it is.
Here’s a funny pun from Boise Ed:
The dancer’s foot-across move in the last panel seems like just the right punctuation to signal a punch line, much like a rim shot. (Have there been tap-dancing stand-up-comedy acts?)
Picked this one up from Arnold Zwicky’s blog, where there is a full description and analysis.
And I just was watching Beanie Feldstein.
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:
Sent by Boise Ed.
The comic’s creator on his website can’t stop punning apparently, and gives the post containing this a title of “O temp, O remoras“.
