Saturday Morning OYs – October 1st, 2022

Thanks to dollarbill for this Oy-Ewww from Argyle Sweater:

dollarbill’s comment:   “I wonder if he brags about his gross income?”

See also the posts in Random Comments and Site Comments on his idea for a structured-commenting game. (Please respond there, not so much here.)

And now, a mini-fest of Bizarro!!


An OY? An Eww? Or just the type of justice we’d like to see?

The bottom one, with the Motley Crüet, has been given Prof. Zwicky’s detail treatment!.

To anyone who might have a birthday this year, Happy Birthday!


This is one that takes up a bunch of hyphenate tags. It’s a LOL-Meta-4thWall with a geezerish allusion to a story (urban legend) you just have to know to make it clear….



Would this hyena might benefit from checking Comics I Don’t Understand?


This Rhymes With Orange LOL is from Alan Smithee.



UPDATE

Let’s see if this image is any cleaner

Dan Piraro also (as he does) used this in the headers of his weekly blog post, with a nice short commentary on familiar cartoon tropes and several examples of his use of the desert island.


(Yes, you may have seen this here about a week ago, in the comments to “Why do you ask?”)

Patience!

This reads as though she’s hinting he let the dog lick the bowls clean. Only, I don’t recall them having a dog?

Moon hits a double today:

Sent by Ken Berkun. Neither of us tried to look up the Carolyn Hax column this may have been used to illustrate.
Does anyone want to treat it as CIDU? If you think it might be more than the officiant turning the traditional “… or forever hold your peace” into a very modern and casual alternative expression. BTW, didn’t we previously have a discussion on whether that “speak now or …” clause is still announced these days?

But come to think of it, why would Connie be surprised at any of the elements of Jeremy’s forefront concerns as depicted? These are the interests he manifests in waking life as well.

It turns out they had a whole dinosaur-themed series; so this one may lose some of the charm of the Stegosaurus showing up in the conversation out of nowhere.

I was just tickled by the key idea here, of ironic and non-ironic being explicit seating options.

This may be a word-play comic, but it was seen too late to get in the Saturday New YOy collection.

And hot off the presses!

(This was actually part of a linked series, but seeing the preceding strips wouldn’t make much difference, apart from explaining what might otherwise be a mysterious detail — she was hit in the head by a flying baseball, and is holding an ice bag to it for pain relief.)

And a second shot for Pardon My Planet. This one is a LOL-CIDU. It did take a couple minutes before we got it – but not hard enough to justify making it a separate CIDU post. Also (I confess) it shows the perils of holding on to a negative attitude about some comic strip — one reason I didn’t get it at first was dismissing some meaningful details as merely haphazard artwork.

LOL-synchro from an unlikely pair!

And a last minute Sunday Bizarro LOL.
