Comics That Made Me Laugh Out Loud: October


Borderline: Not quite LOLs, but a couple of definite grins:


For some reason, almost all the comics that made me laugh out loud this month were published on October 11.


Lola: Hey, and I was at work when it happened!





This was on Jim Moore‘s LOL list, while Nicole submitted the same comic as a groaner:

  2. Well this Sunday’s F-Minus made me laugh out loud. And I think it may get you too, Bill, even though it involves cats.

  3. I think that’s the first Ziggy ever to make me LOL. Actually, I think it’s the first Ziggy in a long time that I’ve even found mildly amusing.

    I was going to send in the F-Minus that Count Shrimpula refers to, but I assumed that “Comics that made me LOL: October” wouldn’t come out until Nov. 1. Bill, why are you so sure that nothing will make you laugh over the next 8 days?

  4. Actually, Autumn, it was a WordPress glitch: This page wasn’t supposed to go live until the 31st — but once it did appear, I figured it would be easier to leave it alone than deal with all the e-mail from people who were informed of an update via RSS and now couldn’t find it.

  5. Bill: great selection of ‘toons here. I got several chuckles from these. Interestingly, the site seems to be heavily weighted towards one-panel gag cartoons. Here, for instance, they outnnumber actual “comics” by about a 2:1 margin. I wonder why that is? Are one-panel cartoons more likely to inspire debate as to their meaning? That could be it. With one-panel ‘toons, obviously, there’s only one chance to “get” the joke.

    The way I found your original site, incidentally, was when I was unsuccessfully searching for the real-life New Yorker cartoon which had inspired the “Seinfeld” episode in which Elaine didn’t understand a cartoon and decided to write one herself. So even there, it was a cartoon rather than a comic which sparked the debate.

  6. Just what the hell is an “ironic shoe” supposed to be? That one was pure CIDU to me.

  7. An ironic shoe would be one chosen for an ironic reason, or chosen to appear ironic. For example, the mud boots worn on a bright sunny day.
