… 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:
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?
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?
Nice to meet a dragon these days that isn’t a Game of Thrones nor a Wagnerian dragon.
More evidence for the idea that any philosophical system extended too far develops problems.
It’s in the detail!
The allusion surely does not need explication here at CIDU!
Okay, we’ll allow an Ewww-LOL this time!
Several OYs from Andréa who says “Today must be Pun Day, rather than Labor Day . . . altho some of these puns could be considered quite labored . . .”.
Pedants / experts, have at it!
And another batch stamped “From Andréa” :
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.
Two Andertoons for the price of one.
Well that’s getting down to the point!
Nice to see the secondary characters getting featured on their own.
Here’s that “LOL-Yikes! (horror)” you saw category-tagged and wondered about.
Actually I think this is making a pretty deep point about the relativity of relativity.
