Good job holding off the reveal!
Thanks to Dale for sending this in, and saying “Is that fish supposed to be smoking? That doesn’t seem funny. Is it that it’s out of the bowl & sitting human fashion? Would that be funny? Are the other fish frowning or is that just resting fish face?”
Also I wondered, as did Dale, as did some commenters at goComics, whether this could have something to do with smoked fish.
That’s where the title about passive progressive comes in. It used to be that you weren’t supposed to say something like “Their house is being built currently”. And instead the recommended form was “Their house is a-building currently” or (slightly less eccentric sounding today) “Their house is building currently”. And by those rules, in place of “The fish is being smoked” you would have “The fish is smoking“. And voilà, here we have a picture of “The fish is smoking”.
Okay, in the spirit of supplementing the daily CIDU with entertaining musical clips, here is Cream doing “Strange Brew”:
… and always thought it was “da doo run run run” . This comes from Philip, who says “Why this song? And why men’s apparel? Is there something obvious I’m not seeing?”
If you have a fave performance of this song, please feel free to share! Here’s a good one, h/t to a commenter rugeirn on the GoComics site:
Clippy was discontinued long enough ago that this may require the geezers category!
From BillR, who says “No, sir, I don’t get it.”
From DanV, who remarks that this Strange Brew is a complete mystery to him.
Because when the clock strikes three, we will have the Big Synchronicity Roundup!
First up, Andréa was struck by the treatment of the old Goofy/Pluto problem, in Pearls Before Swine and Strange Brew:
Next up, Jerry found the focus on Feng Shui in Bizarro and Pickles:
Finally, BillR was seeing jigsaw puzzles all over the place, or at least in F-Minus and Rhymes With Orange:
Do they have something backwards, tho?
Hmm, the status as an OY may be slightly dubious, but it’s worth it.
Sent in by Andréa, BillR, and Dan Sachs; this is somewhat of a CIDU-OY. You may need to brush up on your triggernometry!
