Sunday Funnies – LOLs, June 5th, 2022

(The artist seems not to publicize their personal names, and work is just identified as by “Worry Lines”.)

This might be a bit of CIDU for someone who doesn’t know the expression one-man band.

Here’s another LOL that borders on CIDU.

Take the A Train

I’ve seen scenes like this in movies, and it does seem sensible when taking a kid on the transit to have an emergency meet-up plan.

But some questions:

— Can our New Yorkers, or anyone familiar with the subways there, comment on whether the described trains or routes, and geography, make at least approximate sense? Not so much “Is it a wise plan for these people?” as I figure it is not, but things like whether there is a station called “Eastern Parkway” and the Brooklyn Museum is right by their doorstep..

— And for CIDUers anywhere, is the joke in the complexity of the plan? Is the “under 3” bit because he’s still thinking about diiscounted admission to the museum, or because it would help with the rescue?

Bonus riddle: “My friend Gloria threw up on the subway on Monday”. What life-lesson familiar saying cab we take from that?

This time Junk Drawer is about a junk drawer!

BUT that doesn’t mean only the namesake can discuss the junk drawer!

Okay, okay, not really a LOL. And certainly not an Ewwww. Just more like …. an Awwww?

Bliss and Martin do a nice job with the last-second twist:

From Dave Berg, who sent it in as CIDU. There is potentially a fairly direct explanation, however (reserved for now — we’ll see if you’all agree). But it still leaves this a good, ironic, chuckle.

And a LOL-Eww as a fitting end:

As with the first literary school of fish, there is no mystery about the point or the kind of joke, but we can exercise our memory and sense of Arizona’s 11th largest city by trying to pinpoint the writer in each case and the reason for the icon.
