For CIDU or For Ewww

Lorraine Woodward: Tell me “legs” is some Canadian Christmas candy that smells like candy canes or pine cones–otherwise I’m putting this one solidly in the “CIDU EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!” category?!


  1. It could definitely have been worse, as she’s actually SLIGHTLY above leg level 🙂

  2. I had a similar thought: Imagine this same comic as written by Scott Hilburn…

  3. haha – yeah, I was going to suggest yesterday’s Argyle Sweater installment for an Arlo, actually. Does referring to a saying that uses the word “ass” count as an Arlo strip?

  4. Sorry, “legs” doesn’t have some other meaning in Canada that I’m aware of, and I’ve lived here for 35 years.

  5. I’m assuming it’s some sort of “kids say the darndest things” joke, but even that interpretation is weak. She should have featured Liz and Anthony talking about hwo much Christmas reminds them of their own childhoods–the lights, the excitement, the displays, etc–and then asked Francie what she thinks of everything, and had her respond with “All I see is legs” or something. As is, it’s gross and doesn’t make any sense.

  6. The weird thing about this, to me, is that she’s not saying everything smells like legs. She’s saying everything smells like “legs”. Why the quotation marks? Does it smell not like actual human hind limbs, but like something named “Legs”? Do ZZ Top songs have associated aromas?

  7. I have said some very similar things as a child (and now). I think I would have said that everything smells like pants from that perspective, but some people may be wearing long skirts or something of the like. Thus, legs is an equivalent substitute.

    The statement itself reminds me immensely of the video “Zombie kid likes turtles” that I recently saw. Search for it if you care to see the connection or if you want to get a cheap laugh.
