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.


Lola: Hey, and I was at work when it happened!





This was on Jim Moore‘s LOL list, while Nicole submitted the same comic as a groaner:

The Complete Funky Files


Morris Keesan proposes a new category: Comics That Made Me Groan Out Loud

Two other visitors sent this to me seeking explanations. I advised them to read the fifth panel out loud.

I have no idea what they’re saying here.

I swear, one of these nights Jeri will go nuts and just slit all their throats, and I won’t be the least bit surprised.

Last week:

I’ve mentioned this before, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a blatant example to back up my opinion: Jeri, the older sister in PreTeena, might not be the most likable character (though really not much worse than many teenagers) but her mother’s attitude toward her is no less than hateful: Her comments about Jeri, and to Jeri, are mean-spirited and often qualify as emotional abuse.

Comics That Made Morris Keesan Laugh Out Loud in October


When Morris sent this to me as his LOL nominee, I was personally underwhelmed by it — and isn’t the line supposed to be that a broken clock is right twice a day?

That’s the joke, he explained to me: This clock is so broken, it’s only right once a day.

Okay, that actually is pretty funny. I’m wondering, though… Is this what Carrillo intended (because if it was, I think it would have worked a lot better if he’d emphasized the “once”), or did Morris come up with a much better punchline?
