Two aspirational comics spotted by Chemgal:
From Andréa, as a kind of Arlo-OY:
This is not a full-fledged Sunday comic, but the intro and the two “throwaway” panels. Yet here is where the funny bit was!
From Mark Jackson:
Of course people have always thought “Ira Roth” could be someone’s name.
Oh wait! Just noticed that Arnold Zwicky’s blog goes into linguistic and referential detail about this one.
A paradigmatic LOL-OY from Pearls:
And it’s a double-PBS week with this one from Stan:
And Stan further suggests you need geezer credentials to get the reference in this Oy-LOL, but it shouldn’t be hard for any cohort to pick up on:
A pair (will it continue?) of Oy-based punch lines from Keith Knight.
Bet “pleased to meat you” will not become the hot new greeting this year..
(Okay, these are not currently dated.)
Question 1: Is panel 5 a Geezer or a known fixture of American culture?
Question 2: Is “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia” a Geezer, or perhaps an anti-Geezer? A cultural meme more likely to be known by the young?
From Andréa and chemgal.
And another one from chemgal. This one has to be a Geezer, right?
