(Thanks to Guero for noticing the mistaken mistimed posting of this last week.)
Okay, it’s Resolutions…
“This year we’ll turn it around” counts as a resolution in my book!
Maybe IDU that one?
Nancy: still looking for loopholes after all these years (and cartoonists!)
Thanks to Andréa for this Half Full:
Some photo puns
À half-full OY from Andréa:
Paired clips of Super-Fun-Pak Comix mini-strips from an assembly published under Tom the Dancing Bug. Oy!
Boise Ed sends in this one, which was decades in the making.
This took me a minute, as I don’t often use “home” for a physical house, the building.
For anyone not familiar with the comic, the character on the right, Lyndon, is a psychiatrist or therapist. So Freudian slips are like his stock in trade. But there is something funny in how this patient or client responds to the “Say again?” with an almost-repetition and not acknowledging he has made a correction.
An excellent OY that also had me at least chuckling out loud.
(But I have to confess I don’t know who the guy on the right is. I hope his identity wasn’t another part of the joke.)
Thanks to Rob for these next two OYs (and some hard-to-classify strips coming up elsewhere on the site):
I guess I’m wrong here — I would have said this doesn’t work unless he actually says “Heckuva” (variation possible for the c and/or k, but the v obligatory). But the crowd at GoComics seemed to take it in stride.
And a Sandal Synchronicity:
And which sort of meaning is invoked in “Check your privilege”?
… and “Along with 10 seconds before I got the loose parts ‘remorse'”:
An Oy from Andréa:
Oy by virtue of wordplay, broadly speaking
At Arnold Zwicky’s Blog he analyzes this and discusses previous comics uses of the same pun.
A trio-oy from Andréa:
But I have told my cats they are not truly brother and sisters. Even though I need to say “Now be nicer to your little sister!”
An unpleasant image and I don’t understand the joke exactly.
