It’s not fancy, it’s just funny!
I guess this is crystal clear to a more knowledgeable tennis fan or player, who knows whether that ref (or is it a “line judge”?) is lax in not taking more notice of what happened. And when “second serve” is an appropriate call.
A CIDU-Quickie is like a Minor-Mystery — it seems like it will work out to a good joke, but there’s that just-one-thing we can’t understand. But it’s so close, obviously once someone makes a good suggestion there will be nothing to discuss; so it can’t be expected to be a standalone CIDU to satisfy a whole day’s spot.
Thanks to BillR for this CIDU-Quickie from Bizarro, about which he writes “No idea what the x-balls are.” Well I had an idea – but it wasn’t very good. Then BillR wrote back that his wife had a better idea – and yes it was better. But still not certain. So, what say you?
(Did this already get posted separately and discussed?? I thought so but can’t find it.)
This is a case of what some defined the “oopsie” for – a possibly good joke, but something about the drawing is wrong, or as in this case, tiny, scribbled, and indecipherable, to the extent that the joke is quite lost.
So the anticipated encounter is …. “Hold on! Where are you going with that ape” … “No, this is my kid! Look, here’s our tickets, that proves it.”
The last few weeks I’ve felt that Wrong Hands has been a bit off their best form. But this one seems a good case of returning to their former standard.
So here is another Wrong Hands, sent in by Philip, who notes that as an Oy it would be tripartite. (Have we seen this one before?)
I have never sat down on a cat …. that did not immediately make the situation known! 🙂

A nice little twist on a familiar cat-behavior-pattern trope! Suggested by Andréa.

And after that, he drew a bath.

And I swear I remember when their State Tourism Office had this as their motto! (Probably around the time the University of Illinois used “Four colors suffice” on their postmarks.)
