Some random retro LOLs

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:

Saturday Morning OYs – January 28th, 2023

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?

Thanks to Rob for this Stahler:

A LOL-Ewww or CIDU-Ewww from Kliban:

Second-order synchros of LOLs

What I mean by “second-order synchronicity” is that Arthur was struck by two different synchro pairs on the same day.

Some Ewwws: Compacto-cow pies

A pair of Ewws from Olivier:

Every year when I (Winter Wallaby) go to the Washington state fair, I see a booth selling something like “Cow Chip cookies,” or “Cow Patty cookies,” with a graphic to match. While I assume the cookies themselves taste fine, I always wonder about the marketing decision to have a name and graphic that makes me go “ewww” when I’m considering what food to buy.

On the other hand, every year I see poop emoji hats for sale at the state fair, and I assume they wouldn’t keep putting them out if people didn’t buy them, so what do I know?
