When you’re sending me comics…

Filed under: Arlo Page, Bill Bickel, ChadWatch, CIDU, comic strips, comics, Ewww, humor, lol — Cidu Bill @ 9:56 pm

… at cidumay2004 at yahoo.com … please send me the comic’s URL rather than the comic itself if possible. E-mailed comics sometimes show up as .bmp files (no rhyme or reason behind it as far as I can tell) and when I convert them to .gif or .jpg files, sometimes those converted files look all fuzzy on WordPress (and sometimes not; again, it seems fairly random).

Feels Real

Sorry, I lost track of how many people sent me this as an Arlo Page candidate — and who pointed out that Johnny Hart was probably turning over in his grave.

And an Arlo candidate from Morris Keesan:

Then Again, What’s Her Basis For Comparison?

Jim Moore submitted this one as a “trifecta”: Arlo Page material, a comic that made him laugh out loud, and one for the Ewww Files: (more…)

…and one LOL that goes on the Arlo Page

He’ll Be Done in a Jif

Delaney Davis donated this for the Ewww Files, Nicole as an Arlo Page candidate (adding “I will NEVER eat peanut butter again!”), and Julie gave it the Trifecta: Ewww, Arlo, and lol.

The November Comics That Made Me Laugh Out Loud collection will be online Friday, by the way.

Arlol

Nicole suggested the Paul Combs as an Arlo candidate and the Heart of the City as a semi-Arlo, but I considered them both LOL material. (more…)

Les Douleurs de la Mort

If it helps, the artist captioned this one (more or less) The Pains of Death.

And from this same strip, a Comic That Made Me Laugh Out Loud that also qualifies for the Arlo Page: (more…)

Cow Flop

cowflop.gif

I received this simultaneously as both a CIDU and an Arlo Page candidate. The scene is analogous to guys watching a female jogger who is overly endowed and underly restrained. I personally never saw the aesthetic appeal of this sort of flopping about; but the women in question must believe they’re putting on a show much to be admired, because I imagine this has to be rather painful and I can’t think of any other reason.

All this being said, of course, the “slosh, slosh, slosh” in the first panel was a great sound effect.

Tell Me About the Ribbits

Matt Paretsky: Near as I can tell, this is heading towards the Arlo page. I guess once Samantha kisses her boyfriend, the costume comes off?

Personally, I’m stumped by the mixed metaphor: Is there a significance to witches kissing frogs?

A Very Frazz Halloween, Part 1

Filed under: Arlo Page, Bill Bickel, books, comic strips, comics, Frazz, Halloween, humor, Jef Mallet — Cidu Bill @ 12:01 am

frazz-halloween2007-1.gif
Thanks to Janice Rey for reminding me open up Jef Mallet’s usually-classic Halloween-week Frazz arc to the annual “guessing game.” Extra points to anybody who gets it after only today’s strip.

“SPOILER” WARNING: I believe somebody did nail this immediately, so you might want to avoid reading the comments section if you want to play along at home.

My own early guess, oddly enough, ties into this semi-Arlo strip Nicole sent me aout five minutes after I received Janice’s e-mail.

Cats. Why did it have to be cats?

John Reiher wrote, “I don’t know if this is an Arlo Page entry or an Ewww! page entry.”

Of course to me it’s a CIDU because, you know, cats. I do have a feeling I’ll be suitably grossed out once all the cat people out there explain it to me.

My Arlo Page Has a First Name…

Well, I decided on a way to do a simple, password-free Arlo section (thanks for everybody’s suggestions), and all I needed was an appropriate (or inappropriate) comic to test it out with. Moments later, Monday’s Monty came online. (more…)

Arlo’s Shoe

Filed under: Arlo Page, Bill Bickel, cars, CIDU, comic strips, comics, Heathcliff, humor, in heat, Shoe comic strip — Cidu Bill @ 11:42 pm

Today, Shoe got into the act — and let’s not discuss here what act I’m referring to. Or the artist was referring to. Or whatever.

And yesterday Heathcliff got into the act as well.

B.A.

B.C. joins the Arlo Page. Johnny Hart must be turning over in his grave. As always, the password is the first name of Bill Clinton’s most well-known little bit on the side (don’t forget to capitalize the M).

Get Arlo

Filed under: Arlo Page, Bill Bickel, Bill Clinton, comic strips, comics, Get Fuzzy, humor — Cidu Bill @ 2:56 pm

By popular acclaim, Friday’s Get Fuzzy strip wins a spot on the Arlo Page. As always the page is password-protected for the protection of the young and the sensitive, and the password is the first name of Bill Clinton’s cigar-wielding girlfriend (don’t forget to capitalize the M).

Arlobert

Filed under: Arlo Page, Bill Bickel, Catbert, CIDU, comic strips, comics, Dilbert, humor, security cards — Cidu Bill @ 3:56 pm
  • Today’s Dilbert ventures into both CIDU and Arlo territory, so it’s on the Arlo Page. As always, the password is the first name of Bill Clinton’s most well-known girlfriend, and don’t forget to capitalize the M.

Arlo Page or Ewww Files?

It was sent to me by three people: one with one label, one with the other, and one with both.
