Super Bowl Question

Cidu Bill on Jan 31st 2008

I noticed in the supermarket today a big sign saying “Stock Up For the Big Game,” which made me realize I’d been seeing a lot of advertising that referred to the Super Bowl without actually mentioning its name. Which made me wonder whether tis is some sort of legal thing where the NFL owns the rights to the name “Super Bowl” (which of course they do) and won’t allow companies to use the name in their advertosing without permission.

Does anybody know this to be the case?

Groceries

Okay, this is one of those “comic strip character gets angry for reasons I can’t remotely understand” strips: She said the card gives him discounts. He says he’ll be paying the same as he’d pay in the grocery store across the street. Does he think she’s lying about the discounts, or is he shopping in a store that simply charges more for everything to begin with and if so, how stupid does that make him? On the other hand if he has good reasons for shopping at a more expensive supermarket (better produce, for example), then the fact that the card might reduce the prices to those of the grocery store across the street is still a good thing.

In either case, dude, stop off at the pharmacy department for a Prozac.

Okay, I get the first panel. I get the second panel. I get Marcie’s comment in the third panel (Joe’s mom is a terrible driver); but what’s Joe’s mom talking about in that third panel?

Is there anything here other than “Yes, you’re old”? Which doesn’t really explain “staring”…

Nicole sent this to me as an Arlo Page candidate, but I voted it lol status:

Another lol that borders on Arlo territory — though I’m beginning to think that sufficiently creepy comics should start getting a Lio tag:

If this is a direct current/alternating current gag, Dan Piraro’s even older than I am and I still don’t get it.

I’m lost. A snooty salesclerk at the Gap? And I’d think the other customers would be applauding Val rather than rolling their eyes like PreTeena’s teacher.
