Hmm, a little more acidic than we usually expect from Bliss.
An eminently reasonable request! (And Andertoons seems to have taken on a larger format.)
Yeah, one of the jokes is just too old — but the comeback is new to me, and pretty good!
A measured response to conflict won’t make the movies.
Here’s hoping all our CIDU readers are in good health, or will be soon.
A few from Guindon

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.
Yep, that should have more cat-appeal than pizza.
And can’t let it go without a last-minute Zack!

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?
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!

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.
Let’s see if this image is any cleaner
And the band played off?
Dirk the Daring shared this Mannequin on the Moon, commenting, “Maybe someone who watches more TV or movies than I do will know what this means”.
Mitch has a theory he may share, but even if he’s right (and I suspect he is), it’s still peculiar at best IMHO.

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.”
