Sunday Funnies – LOLs, August 7th, 2022

This should fulfill the category tag of “Momentary CIDU”. It presents something genuinely puzzling, but solvable quickly enough that it wouldn’t work as a daily standalone CIDU post.


A delectable one from Mutts’ finicky cat.


I couldn’t resist tossing this in the list … for the sake of quoting these classic lyrics:
Ahh you've gone to the finest school, all right Miss Lonely
But you know you only used to get JUICED in it
Nobody's ever taught you how to live out on the street
But you find out now you're gonna have to get USED to it


Here is the Dark-LOL advertised in the Category links:


This reminds me of a joke by Steven Wright: “I wish, when I was first born, the first thing I said was “Quote” so the last thing I said before I died would be “Unquote.””

Chemgal sends in this pair from Strange Planet:


Is the phrasing that somebody “is assisting the police in their inquiries” used everywhere? I first learned the phrase back when I worked for the Journals Division and a certain scholarly Association worked with us to draft a press release and statement to go in the journal they sponsored and edited but we published. The readership / membership had to be told that there would be an interim Acting Editor for an issue or more, as the Editor’s stay in the UK was being extended as he was needed there “to assist the authorities in their inquiries into the circumstances of the death of his wife”! [mitch]


We just had “The Grill is On” as an OY yesterday, so we’ll pick another song to wake you up this morning. [ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1fImXAeS-s if the embed doesn’t show up correctly; your new editor is still learning a few things ]


Independence Day!

Let’s appropriately start with the Pledge of Allegiance.

A serious moment from Nancy. The Gilchrists could do this type of thing well.

Now it’s time for a picnic and fireworks!

And one good Baldo deserves another! We never got anything more exciting than sparklers, regardless of what the neighbors got.

The Founding Fathers had to contend with a lot of logistic difficulties in declaring independence.

Let’s not forget, though, that the Founding Fathers were also quite interested in making a buck, and modern America continues that tradition!

But eventually the Founding Fathers brought their interests into harmony with each other.

But beyond commercialism and politics, there’s a country out there to treasure.

This land is your land and this land is my land
From the California to the New York island
From the redwood forest to the Gulf Stream waters
This land was made for you and me (Woody Guthrie)

Who dun what?

Thanks to Alan Smithee for sending in this Mutts and asking “[Sunday’s] Mutts seems to be a ‘Whodunit’, but I can’t tell what the solution is supposed to be”. And I can’t even tell what the question was supposed to be!

No excuse beyond the canine link:

Has he seasoned it himself? And uses some of that expensive saffron for the dog? How nice! Oh, or maybe he sampled some, and the spice report is the result of his tasting? Or it’s advertised that way, and he’s looking to verify the claims?

Saturday Morning Oys – December 11th, 2021

Oy! A run of treepuns in Mutts!

Let’s just call this format something like “text-added photo” and not get into what can or cannot properly be called “meme”.

There may or may not be a discoverable individual “author”, but I wll lazily enough use the name of the person posting to Facebook Group “The Daily Pun”.

Saturday Morning Oys – April 10th, 2021

This Mutts is from a series introducing “King”. Not the deepest of puns, but has its little charms.

Another not-so-deep Oy, but considering how much grousing and joking has attached to the Zoom software, there has been surprisingly little using this older generic sense.

From Andréa, who asks “How many even know what a CARE package was?”.

Further from Andréa, who says “I was expecting a ‘men don’t ask directions’ joke; this is funnier”.
And it’s a triple hit for Andréa!
