Maybe it’s a genuine CIDU? But I think that punch line is all there is.
I think we all can sympathize with Duane’s motivations for his … little prank. And that’s the main joke, which is not in need of explication; so this isn’t quite a CIDU. But if we wanted to get into it a little, we could ask whether he’s getting revenge more on the kid or on the mom. And at the practical level, what does it mean that he still has the barber’s customer-apron as he’s leaving?
I guess this Working Daze fits an offshoot of the “CIDU-Quickie” category, where the joke is utterly incomprehensible until you are shown (or realize you already know) an instance of something-that’s-going-around, and then that entirely exhausts the mystery.
I had asked for comic with covid inconsistencies. There were enough comics sent in that I’m splitting the comics into two posts. Part 2 coming tomorrow.
woozy sent this one in:
Andréa points out that Peter needs to cover his nose:
On the other side, Working Daze has been so consistent in showing masks that they put a “Before there were masks” label on a comic where no one is wearing masks in the office.
And two comics from the original post asking for covid inconsistency comics, in case anyone wanted to comment on those.
Some e-mails mentioned covid inconsistencies in tv shows as well. I won’t repost the e-mail discussions, but feel free to discuss tv shows as well as comics in the comments. (I guess that goes without saying, as it follows from the fact that you should feel free to veer wildly off-topic.)
