And no, I have no idea how this one got posted to this page rather than to the new page (http://www.comicsidontunderstand.com/wordpress). The new page has its own new comic this morning.

Carl Fink: So a silhouette is walking in the background while in the foreground is a Venetian shoe from the Renaissance?
To me, it looks like a clown with big breasts. Is that something I should be talking to my shrink about? -Bill

Is this just, you know, “there are strange people at Denny’s at 3am,” or is there something more specific going on here?

Not a CIDU, not really a lol… just one of those comics that offers some oddly appealing (or appealingly odd) logic
S. P. Charles rolls his eyes as the “Teena’s Teacher Bemoans the War Against Christmas” storyline continues into its second month.
“Gratitude”? What is Cory, some waif they took in off the street last month?
Am I the only one who simply can’t reconcile all these unlikeable middle-aged people with the characters who used to populate this strip?
Okay, no more rants about Funky Winkerbean. All comments about the direction of the strip should be addressed at the Stuck Funky site: They do it better there anyway.
Maybe it’s a guy thing, but I can’t even begin to see the internal logic here: Val accidentally came to work wearing pajamas and convinced her boss that they weren’t actually pajamas, and this encourages her friend to whip off her bra??

Mark Jackson: If Andrew Nutz goes to public school, who was that woman I saw him with last month?
However, I do not understand what the the car wash marquee originally said.
I know “Sal eats cars” is funny, funny enough to be on some blog, not the town’s paper! That’s not it, of course.
It’s the 3rd panel explaining how the phrase ended up on the marquee — “a ‘T’ blow[n] off a sign”
Did it blow off the car wash marquee? If so, where was it before? If not, did it blow off another sign onto the car wash’s, and the marquee used to say “Sal ea-s cars”?
Let’s recap: Les didn’t know whether Funky was chaperoning Cory’s party… and Summer “took the fifth” rather than telling him because she didn’t want FUNKY to find out whether he’d chaperoned Cory’s party… because Les didn’t know that his best friend was off in the French West Indies.
Okay, am I the only one who expects Elly to go outside in the next panel and fly a kite in a lightning storm?

… 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).
She knew she was wearing pajamas and hoped nobody would notice? She forgot she was wearing pajamas? Or did I sleep through a third possibility?
Putting aside the fact that Les doesn’t seem to know what “taking the fifth means” means (it’s not as if he ever knew any lawyers, after all), isn’t whether or not Funky and Holly were there something Funky would already know?
(assuming Funky’s still on the wagon)
And I’m assuming “I wasn’t drinking” is a direct response to “taking the fifth,” referring to “a fifth of scotch” or somesuch. Which, see, Summer wasn’t drinking.
Personally — and let me know if I’m alone here — whether Funky and Holly would be chaperoning the party is something I’d be asking about before allowing my 16-year-old to attend.
It’s 1999. The gang is playing touch football, and Lisa is hit hard and goes down. She loses consciousness for a few minutes and when she wakes up she says “Les, I just had this terrible dream. I died, and after I was gone you aged very badly and became a pathetic loser who creeps out our daughter.” Les assures her none of this will ever happen, she adds “and Les, let’s sell all our dot.com stock right now,” and the strip continues from there.
