… 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”.
This next one depends on remembering when Lars von Trier and friends declared the Dogme 95 principles for filmmaking. (And probably does not require remembering the Kevin Smith film Dogma.)
With this December 2011 Brevity, we’re getting a bit into OYs.
And we interrupt our parade of Oldies to drop in a Duffy Lug Nuts on the same theme from current GoComics publication:
Btw, the text means “Happy Birthday”
Some medical conditions are best approached gingerly.
Hit me again, dealer!
Just in case anyone here had some doubt, “Himalayan” is indeed a recognized breed of cat. My mother had a cat named Hillary, and some people thought that name was in honor of a prominent American politician; but in fact he was a Himalayan cat, and named for Sir Edmund Hillary. Here is a picture of the breed:
Not really an OY, but then tax filings aren’t due until Tuesday, April 18.
Almost a pun failure, as it is arguable the joke of her equivocation is already well-cemented in panel 3 and then the clues in panel 4 are just a waste. But probably it is also arguable that many a reader would miss the gag in panel 3 and there is a definite need for panel 4 …
And this dampens my hope of someday understanding what “fugue state” is or is not related to.
Yes, it’s the same David Mamet better known as a playwright.
In Chicago we have not exactly Ballet Parking but rather Poetry Parking, close to the Opera House, and with special packages for Opera parking and for Joffrey Ballet. And “ironically” (as the kids like to say) it is very much not valet parking — it is self-parking and their web site brags of “full automation”. As this signage illustrates, you will be aided in remembering what level you parked on by color-coding and iconography of different poets and poems.
Andréa sends these in. Is there an accent where “Potter” sounds like more like “Putter” than it does here in the midwestern U.S.?
This is a bit of deja vu. One of your editors (not saying which one, but their first initial is “z”) accidentally posted these to last week’s OY page, after that page had been published. Proper PUNishment will be forthcoming.
How about some breakfast Grawlix?
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.
P.S. This Bizarro was discussed in some detail on the Arnold Zwicky blog.
I don’t know, wouldn’t it have been simpler and just as effective to go with the standard “minstrel” spelling?
