… at Alice’s Restaurant!
And while we’re at it, another Reply All:
And this was a winning week for Andertoons!
This Lug Nuts is pretty funny, but leaves a mystery. Hence LOL-CIDU.
Thanks to maggiethecartoonist, who says “Always remember pants”.
My guesses are that the Sporkula and Foon are made up, and that the Foodle was intended that way but in fact exists, under some other name. I think I’ve seen it used for lifting and serving spaghetti.
So clever! (But we may have to watch out for the pronunciation-guide people.)
To anyone who might have a birthday this year, Happy Birthday!
This is one that takes up a bunch of hyphenate tags. It’s a LOL-Meta-4thWall with a geezerish allusion to a story (urban legend) you just have to know to make it clear….
Would this hyena might benefit from checking Comics I Don’t Understand?
This Rhymes With Orange LOL is from Alan Smithee.
Let’s see if this image is any cleaner
A bit o’ Arlo-OY here:
Very simple OY, classic in its elegance!
You’d need to be a big fan of the Oys to enjoy the preceding run of Diamond Lil, where each order she places at the bar is filled in a way involving a visual pun. So starting here you can picture a frosty mug, a tallboy, a brewski (IDU that one), a draft, a schooner, and a growler.
Okay, is it missing a beat, or brilliantly leaving unsaid, that Martin changes his mind because the patron reveals he is preparing to use highlighter or underline if he doesn’t have Post-Its?
Thanks to Boise Ed for sending this in and noting how it does “clever damage to the fourth wall”.
And a nice plus here is that Percy was not brought in just for this meta moment, but in following days has some entirely non-meta joke conversations with Clayton.
Well, there’s a good OY on the left, and a good LOL on the right, and I’m feeling too lazy to get out the cropper, so let’s print it twice, once today, and once yesterday or tomorrow.
Not a huge LOL, but Tiger and Punkinhead here are reproducing a classic problem in the literature of logical representation, going back to Bertrand Russell.
An Arlo-LOL from Divad who says “I’ve got a pretty good guess what was on Arlo’s mind (in general), but I’m trying to not picture what he’s specifically thinking.”
“Zzz-mailing” makes it worth it…
Two aspirational comics spotted by Chemgal:
Chemgal: Do people pronounce “werewolf” to rhyme with the other three, or more like “where-wolf”? I’d swear the second, but this comic seems to assume the first.
