DeathMatch! update

Two more for Death today. I assume the Bizarro is somehow related to “cummerbund” and “moribund” sounding a little sort of alike (though I’m open to other suggestions); and the Buni is a full-fledged CIDU.

Well, it doesn’t have to make sense to earn a point.

So that’s Death 4, Russian Clown Gesundheit 0.

Non-participant Pinocchio is hanging in there with 3.

(And I assume the joke here is that a puppet made out of driftwood will become a drifter)

For previous updates, please click the DeathMatch tag.

EDITED TO ADD: Okay, “Oh no, I’m just here for your Yogurt” Grim Reaper only,  Which returns us to Death 2, Russian Clown Gesundheit 0. 

Pinocchio must be enjoying this.


DeathMatch! Update (With bonus CIDU)

Didn’t take long to get started: Saturday, Nathan sent me this Mr. Lovenstein strip (which seems to be designed to make copying the comic impossible; if this becomes a trend, we might be out of business).

So Death drew first blood.

And then Sunday:


Clown Cars would have been on the board if we saw through the window a tiny parked car:

And maybe we should have let Pinocchio compete:

And okay, while we’re here, let’s hit the second one, the Mother Goose and Grimm, with a CIDU tag. Yes, Jonah and Pinocchio both ended up inside whales (though Jonah a few thousand years earlier, but whatever), but why is Jonah holding a sheet of paper (?) and why is Pinocchio disassembled? Is the whale actually an Ikea popup?

Anyway, after the first weekend, it’s Death 2, Russian Clown Gesundheit 0.
