Sunday Funnies – LOLs, January 8th, 2023

Wow, the last two Sundays were on the holidays, so there were a lot of LOLs people saw but we didn’t have the right place to post yet. And now …




A bit of synchronicity in my GoComics feed suits this post to a T.


Off the Mark





Yep, that should have more cat-appeal than pizza.


And can’t let it go without a last-minute Zack!

Twas the OY before Kicksmess – December 24th, 2022


Andréa sends in these. Good to see the Ministry of Silly Walks getting into the holiday spirit.



A perpetual favorite mixup:

… and what did we just say?


More Bizarro.


Here’s one for the “not a classic pun, but generalized language play” … also it’s time to acknowledge the “dad jokes” category in pop culture.

As we have asked a few times before, Does this Bliss cartoon work better in b/w or in color?


(As we probably have not asked before, Would this comparison slider presentation work better in this side-by-side format or in a vertical division?)

Our own Zbicyclist mentions the resemblance of the b/w paintings above to some works his family saw on a visit to the Fundació Joan Miró (Museum) in Barcelona, which features work by Miró as well as other 20th and 21st Century artists. This shot from the #FundacióMiró Foundation’s Instagram shows a work which was also shown in Zbicyclist’s family visit photo; the dot in the museum is either black or a very dark blue.

But then, don’t you also think “Such peacefulness”?

Perhaps a bit CIDU-LOL?

And another food-centered cartoon (older – you may have seen before):


I can forgive mispelins in comic strips, but the sloppy editing in the regular news (and the sloppy headlines) depress me.


Andréa sends in this update about Mutts:

Patrick McDonnell’s Mutts has a new look: “MUTTS might look a little different to you this week and in the future. If so, it’s because I’ve loosened up my art style, using very little preliminary pencils (in some cases none) and going straight to drawing in ink. It gives the strip more of the power and intimacy of a preliminary sketch, which I love. I’m also freehand lettering the dialogue”


Refusal with very good reason! (Awarded Arlo)

And here is the effect of his overactive pineal:


Back to Bliss!

This may be a case of two overfamiliar clichés combining to give a cynical chuckle.



A couple for those of you counting steps. These were also a synchronicity.




A new twist!

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!

Sunday Funnies – LOLs, September 4th, 2022


To anyone who might have a birthday this year, Happy Birthday!


This is one that takes up a bunch of hyphenate tags. It’s a LOL-Meta-4thWall with a geezerish allusion to a story (urban legend) you just have to know to make it clear….



Would this hyena might benefit from checking Comics I Don’t Understand?


This Rhymes With Orange LOL is from Alan Smithee.



UPDATE

Let’s see if this image is any cleaner

This comic is a work of fiction. Any resemblance to websites living or dead is purely coincidental.



Thanks to DollarBill, who sends this in as a “chuckle on a variation.”


Hey, just thinking about it! Not actually enacting “Nature red in tooth and claw”!

Particularly appropriate because there’s no AC in Shakespeare’s day.


This submission comes with the comment “I thought the REAL name of the eighth dwarf was either “Horny” or “Stoned”.”
I’ve heard the 8th dwarf was Bloomberg. What other names have you heard?


Here’s a juicy one!

Thanks to Le Vieux Lapin for this Mannequin on the Moon.

So, just how will this situation lead to super-villains? And not to feminist anti-fashion super-heroines?

Speaking of couture, the Rabbit asks also whether the logo/branding is to be seen as printed backwards on that top (since it reads correctly in the mirror). But it seems they don’t generally do it that way at Juicy brand:

Saturday Morning Oys – July 23rd, 2022

(This is under the “not really a pun but word play in general” tag.)

This joke may actually date back to the Viking era, or earlier.

Thanks to Andréa for this Bizarro:

I’m sure I’ve seen this joke used before, but not whether that means this is a repeat or just that the joke has occurred to others. A cursory search does find other examples, and tempting as it is to make a whole post out of three or four of them, let’s leave it at that.

From Andréa:

Just a bit corny.

And a little Oy-Ewww on the side.
