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…

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

Semi-Crass Commercialism

Just a reminder that instead taking up a lot of space with ads here, I’m trying something new: Since the old CIDU site (http://www.comicsidontunderstand.com) is serving no purpose other than directing people here who still have the old bookmark, I’m moving the ads there. If you’re so inclined, drop by once in a while. Maybe you’ll find something you like. Or interesting stuff you’ll want to click. Or not.

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.

Not Craw…

Seven people sent me Friday’s Close to Home strip:

It’s a clawfoot bathtub

and therefore presumably acts like an animal with claws.

Of course, since this is a cat-like punchline, I recognize the possibility that I could be wrong.

Up, Up and Away

But is there actually a joke here?

I saw this really funny comic a few weeks ago, where a balloon vendor like this one says “What really makes me feel silly is when I’ve sold every balloon except for one.”

O-E-O

I thought this was very funny when I first saw it; but three people e-mailed me copies of it asking for explanations, so maybe it wasn’t as obvious as I thought.

It’s a reference to what the Wicked Witch of West’s guards were chanting as Dorothy and her friends were approaching the castle. To better refresh your memory, click here.

Where the hell do the Gilchrists buy their gardening supplies???

With a track record like that, would you brag?

Okay, at least we’re not talking about a strip that should have run 47 years ago; but seriously, either two weeks ago or not at all, you know?

Heck of a thing to mention to the kid who just learned he is your “mistake.”

I’m just sayin’…
