Answer That?

Okay, this is just… nice. It’s remarkable how much better this strip became around the same time Jon and Liz began an adult relationship.

I think the difference between fathers and mothers is that fathers deliberately embarrass their pre-teen and teenage children, while mothers just… do. (more…)

A Post-Christmas Comic That Made Me Laugh Out Loud


I can laugh at this, because Christmas isn’t my holiday. All I ever have to do is put away a menorah, and I’m done.

And I hope to get around to that by the end of the week at the latest.

This is the first time he ever stayed to the end of a Christmas dinner??

Politically Incorrect Comic of the Week


(and why the comic is dated 12/24 but published 12/29 is another matter)

Put a Little Sugar On It Honey

Filed under: Bill Bickel, breakfast, cereals, comic strips, comics, Committed, humor, Michael Fry, sugar — Cidu Bill @ 9:37 pm

I have to wonder whether Mr. Fry ever ate breakfast cereal as a child

have always been around.

In fact, if anything, the trend is toward playing down the sugar content:

They’re Christmas cookies. Even the President of the ACLU calls them Christmas cookies. Unless, you know, some of them are shaped like dreidels and Kwanzaa candles.
Just saying…

Big Books

Jim Moore: Visually, it looks like the book “who isn’t on steroids” is BIGGER than the book “who is on steroids”? Then what’s the gag?

No New Trial for Donald Blom

He’s guilty as hell, a sadistic killer and possibly a serial killer as well — so should it matter that he didn’t get a fair trial?

Post-Christmas Comics I Didn’t Understand

Yes I know what schadenfreude means. I just don’t understand how it relates to Santa and The Donald.

If Grandma had gotten run over by a reindeer, at least I’d have known what the joke was supposed to be; but…

Need a Lift?

Is there something specific happening here, or just an unspecified Chas Addams “Uh oh!” gag (which, personally, I find funnier)?

I have no idea what the joke is here, but I suspect the cartoonist is getting coal in his stocking this morning.

Christmas Comics That Made Me Laugh Out Loud

Honestly there’s a bit of CIDU here because I’m not sure whether Dan Piraro intended this as a “There’s a War on Christmas!” whine. I will give him the benefit of the doubt and say no, though, because it made me laugh.

Well, at least he’s not wearing a cheerleader skirt…

I really do believe that Tom Batiuk is leading up to Les being not just embarrassingly eccentric, but mentally ill — ever since, in fact, that bizarre adventure in Manhattan “ten years ago.”

Which of course will make these strips a lot less amusing in hindsight, the same way all those jokes about Ronald Reagan’s memory and attention span lapses were funny until it turned out he had Alzheimer’s.
