Saturday Morning OYs – January 7th, 2023

My guesses are that the Sporkula and Foon are made up, and that the Foodle was intended that way but in fact exists, under some other name. I think I’ve seen it used for lifting and serving spaghetti.



So clever! (But we may have to watch out for the pronunciation-guide people.)




Twas the OY before Kicksmess – December 24th, 2022


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?


More Bizarro.


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.

Sunday Funnies – LOLs, December 18, 2022

From Ooten Aboot, with an illuminating commentary:

In 1874, a similar culture clash happened in real life when Montreal’s McGill University challenged Harvard to a two game “football” match. To McGill, “football” meant Rugby, while Harvard followed “Boston Rules”, a version of Soccer with limited catching and carrying of a spherical ball. The solution was to play one game under each set of rules. Harvard won the “Boston” game, while the Rugby result was a 0-0 tie. Nevertheless, Harvard apparently liked the McGill style and adopted similar rules, so that encounter with McGill may have been the origin of American Football as it known today.


A case of How to Respond to Critics?






Saturday Morning OYs – December 3rd, 2022

Let’s see, where is the checkbox for category “Food Neurosis Puns”?


The reader sending in this Barney & Clyde wrote: Heh heh, she said “stern”!


Vintage Funky from this week, recycled from when it was a gag strip.



Callback to Bizarro’s “Casual Frida” from October?

Saturday Morning OYs – November 19th, 2022


Is anybody else bothered by the use of “interrogate” in Theory-laden political and social discourse?


If you’re having any uncertainty about the main pun (which comes about third in sequence), think brand name.


Remind you of the title of a contemporary pun-loving panel comic?


Sunday Funnies – LOLs, October 30th, 2022

You knew there had to be one of those! (But I was befuddled looking for it at the wrong side.)

Y’know, I basically hate straight-out Ewwwws. But the way this one exploits the dispensing shape, you just gotta laugh.


A new take on the Law of Identity?


Thanks to Rob for this Tom Falco.

Is it a CIDU for any readers? We’re figuring no, everybody knows the sandwich franchise.


Saturday Morning OYs – October 22nd, 2022


Andréa sends in this synchronicity / Ewww. Kids and bidets. Never thought of them as such a big source of comic material. Marvin even spends a whole week on bidet gags, making you wonder a bit about what’s going on in Tom Armstrong’s life.

And thanks to  Las Vegas Chasm, we can pair that condiment joke with a seasoning joke:

Or if not seasoning, then powdered mix for reconstitution …


Saturday Morning OYs – September 10th, 2022

Several OYs from Andréa who says “Today must be Pun Day, rather than Labor Day . . . altho some of these puns could be considered quite labored . . .”.

Pedants / experts, have at it!


And another batch stamped “From Andréa” :
