Dung Deux

Nicole: Looks like Scott Hilburn might be running out of ideas — this is the second dung beetle joke in two weeks


  1. To be fair, though, Dave Farley (of sainted Dr. Fun memory) would often run “theme weeks” — so by Friday, we’d have dung coming out of our ears.

    So to speak.

  2. You could probably show that Blondie (now by-lined Dean Young; earlier Chic Young) has done several repetitive jokes at least twice in two weeks for decades: Dagwood lunching in the greasy spoon; Dagwood bowling over Mr Beasley the mail carrier; Dithers booting Dagwood in the Bumstead . . . I could go on. Dagwood browsing the family photo album/rogues’ gallery . . . well, I said I could go on.

  3. You can’t have too many dung beetle jokes.

  4. “Off the Mark” by Mark Parisi does this every now and then. He does have recurring themes and characters, but every now and then a week of the same idea will pop through for no apparent reason.
