Sunday Funnies – LOLs, May 8th, 2022

Perhaps over-familiar as a mental-health joke, but enough original twist to make it funny.

One (and done) from Andréa, and extracted from a Loch Ness synchro:
Sent by Dana K, who says “Same thing Abe Lincoln was getting at when he spoke of “government OF the people and BY the people and FOR the people”.

Phweww, that is some nasty wren breath!

Stan explains “I’m not sure what’s going on here. Is the dog unhappy because the bird he’s just caught has ‘wren breath’ and therefore tastes bad? Or is the dog upset because he’s got wren breath after eating the wren? If either of these were going to be an issue, why did he eat it in the first place? What did he think would happen after eating a wren?”

P.S. This Zippy has in the meantime received the Arnold Zwicky professional treatment.

P.P.S. Here’s that word ‘serf’ again:

I just like this, more than I can defend.

I only recently started sometimes reading One Big Happy, and evidently don’t yet have a good handle on the age and attitude of the intended audience. But these are all clear OYs on familiar sayings.

I really like treating “erudite” as the name of a mineral. But don’t care for the supposed punch line here that was used to get that across and try to pun on the standard meaning.

Second-order synchros of LOLs

What I mean by “second-order synchronicity” is that Arthur was struck by two different synchro pairs on the same day.

“Barney & Clyde matches with MGG:”

“And Close To Home matches with Off the Mark:”

“Neither are exact matches, but both immediately caught my eye.”

This was a momentary CIDU, for want of a comma. Sent by Boise Ed. Ed did some research on our behalf and reports “If you look in the [GoComics] comments, you’ll see that it caught Mark Parisi by surprise.”

And a longer-puzzling CIDU-oy: I still can’t figure out the intended real-life musical pair being referred to. (Searching got me to an article mentioning opera director Robert Carsen and “superstar soprano Renée Fleming” — but the characters in the cartoon are not doing opera.)
