Thanks to Boise Ed for sending this one! “Pardon My Planet often has head-scratchers, but this one really befuddles me. If she has gotten a restraining order to keep him 500 feet away from her, why is she about to marry him?”

Saturday Morning OYs – February 18th, 2023
A couple OYs from Andréa:
P.S. And then I saw this one on Facebook:
I had to give it a minute to hit.
And in Chicago we call it “wha’s this here sauce?”.

Hmm, a little more acidic than we usually expect from Bliss.
An eminently reasonable request! (And Andertoons seems to have taken on a larger format.)
Yeah, one of the jokes is just too old — but the comeback is new to me, and pretty good!
A measured response to conflict won’t make the movies.
Here’s hoping all our CIDU readers are in good health, or will be soon.
A few from Guindon

It’s a bit gruesome to contemplate just how her face has been involved in those ship launches!
P.S. Don’t forget the milli-Helen, a unit of facial beauty capable of launching one ship.
Pardon my outrage! (Bonus OY)
Realistically, he would not have so simply found a vet who would go along with this. It still is a bit of a shocker!
Saturday Morning OYs – November 5th, 2022
Some of these are somewhat CIDU for me, actually. I’m just guessing “Frankenstein’s Castle” is a thing, and “Vampire Bass” draws a blank.
Since we seem to have a subcategory under Oy for “Literalizing an Idiom”, might as well provide it some examples!
When he dons it, is it part of his gay apparel?
Should this strip have appeared on a Throwback Thursday?
Happy Halloween — a good excuse to post some monster-themed cartoons. Here’s a couple that might fit into a Halloween-themed library.
This man isn’t worried that he’s out of candy, because he’s planned ahead.
If there is something left, it might not be the good stuff.
One measure of how influential Peanuts was is how familiar the Great Pumpkin is to us all.
First mention of the Great Pumpkin, October 26, 1959. You can follow this arc at https://www.gocomics.com/peanuts/1959/10/26
So, Monty Python’s science was right!
Andréa sends in this synchronicity. Cartoonists are always looking for a new angle, but sometimes push it too far.
Finally, like that house at the end of the night that gives out multiple candy bars so they won’t eat them all themselves, there’s this bonanza from John Atkinson — some cartoonists would have spread these out one at a time, and gotten a whole month out of this idea.
Pardon my Glass Slipper
Thanks to Usual John for sending in this one — and as the first to actually use the new Suggest-A-CIDU form! He asks “What is the joke? Is it just that this aspect of the Matter of Britain has been reimagined as a modern day reality show? Or is there something more to it?”

Boise Ed sends in this one, which was decades in the making.
Pardon my 1590 mile displacement
A CIDU (or Ooops!) from zbicyclist, who explains: The line from Folsom Prison Blues is “I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die”. So what’s the significance of Kansas City (where everything is up to date, according to Rodgers and Hammerstein)?
Can you advance a principled reason for changing the city? And, more to the CIDU point, how does her “ready for marriage” second sentence relate to anything?
