Comics That Made Me Laugh Out Loud in Late December



I think the difference between fathers and mothers is that fathers deliberately embarrass their pre-teen and teenage children, while mothers just… do.
I already had this on my list, and then Nicole seconded it:

Also from Nicole: “Because fart jokes are the universal language…”


And even more from Nicole: At the risk of starting another Global Warming discussion…


Nicole: Is that a gopher in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?





Jim Moore:


Joe Gottman:


Count Shrimpula: The look on the baby’s face in the last panel is what clinched it.


Keera Ann Fox:



  1. Just the first two panels of that Baby Blues made me laugh out loud. I think something with the way “Big pumpkin head” is split up over three balloons.

    I don’t understand the F Minus kidney cartoon.

  2. I LOVED the F Minus comic. Naturally, it’s ridiculous that the kidney could have come from both of them, which is funny enough but there is a second level of funny where when someone (no names please) forgets to get a gift and then someone else who did agrees to put your name on the card….not that I’ve ever had to do that….much.

  3. Re I am Spartacus: Everyone was going to be killed anyway. Of course, if they had turned in Spartacus, whoever turned him in might have gotten off, but that would have been only one or two people. By concealing Spartacus’s identity, they robbed the Romans of a P.R. coup and saved Spartacus from greater tortures. The historical Spartacus is believed to have fallen in battle, his body lost.

  4. Spartacus — weren’t they all offered thier lives if they turned over Spartacus? If I remember correctly (and who says I do?) the point was they were all willing to give up their lives for Spartacus.

  5. Pearls Before Swine — it is a pretty lame joke — but it was the ‘Flying Monkeys’ that got me.

  6. The Fly House of Windows got me…

  7. Regarding the Victoria’s Secret car bra, I think Betty did that gag a while back, with a car in bra and garters.

  8. Sparticus:
    Sort of like the grand gesture of futility in “ANIMAL HOUSE” crossed with trhe Spartans at Thermopylae.

  9. #2 The man’s off posture made him look as if he were pregnant, and I thought the joke was that the kidney was coming not from them, but from their child. Which is kinda creepy, and I also didn’t get why the man was pregnant. Looks like I was reading too much into it; thanks for clearing it up.

  10. The cartoon with Barbie and Ken is a little creepy, considering that Chatty Cathy is a little girl doll, not a grown woman doll.

  11. Todd — but compared to Barbie and Ken, Chatty Cathy is a big girl.

  12. I’ve been in that “Baby Blues” situation many a time, struggling to pull a shirt over my daughter’s head and wondering “why won’t this come off?”

  13. What’s the joke with Herman?

    Comment by Michael — January 4, 2008 @ 11:29 am

  14. #13 – he thinks the ice bucket is a glass….and as such there’s too much ice in it and it’ll water down his champagne. Clearly doesn’t get out to restaurants often.

  15. The kidney joke, as I got it, was that when you’re part of a couple, everything is “we”. So when the woman is pregnant, they say “We’re pregnant”. Pretty funny commentary on couplehood.
