If the joke here is that she’s so tired she doesn’t realize this is February, then that’s pretty funny. Otherwise, I’m stumped.

Hey, Boo

Alan Hamilton: I don’t get it. Is she saying he’s expressionless?

My own thought was that she’s calling him ugly. Setting aside the matter of which gratuitous insult she’s offering up and why (and when I say “setting aside” I mean that purely as a figure of speech, of course, because nothing’s beneath analysis around here), why is she wearing a Halloween shirt in February?

Peter Byrnes: Scanned from the Feb 2008 Australian Reader’s Digest.
I don’t know how the editor let this one by.
And I really hope that’s his thumb…
 
And actually, this is somewhat of a CIDU for me -Bill

By Hook or…

I’m thinking this is no more complicated than “Bo Peep’s crook looks like the hook-thing blackjack dealers use to rake in the chips; but if I’m wrong, I’m sure somebody will tell me.

In case I’m not, here’s another one:

Julie: This is exactly what tax firms do this time of year. Is the writer making of fun of them or am I missing something?

Question of the Week

Cidu Bill on Feb 26th 2008

Because so many wrote to ask where this comic came from, I figured it would be quicker to answer here: Day by Day by Chris Muir.

And we still never did figure out what “flimngth” meant

Not a clue (and to save everybody some time, let’s stipulate that in some states school lets out in May while in others it lets out in June).

Wet

One that made Janice Rey say Ewww: “Don’t want to go to a movie in that theatre any time soon. (Mind you, I can think of lots worse things to be on a theatre seat, but lets not go there…)”

noob

Okay, I understand the language (”For your information? Too much information” “lol, whatever”), but the “noob” puzzles me, because it seems like a rather harsh thing to call your niece. Is there some other, more benign context for the word?

More of That Cool Global Warming Gag

Cidu Bill on Feb 24th 2008

Powers: Today’s Hi and Lois is another “Global Warming” gag, but it’s not clear whether Lois is falling into the same trap as so many others, or if she really does know better and is intentionally making a joke.

The Funky Winkerbean Mysteries

Cidu Bill on Feb 23rd 2008

wheresfunky.gif
First of all, are we now to understand that Funky has been expanding all over the country (or the world)? No weight jokes, please. I’m pretty sure this is the first indication that Montoni’s has locations other than in Westview and Manhattan.

And who ever heard of “taking over” existing pizza shops? You want to open a pizza shop, you just open a pizza shop.

But the more important question is, where’s the Stuck Funky website, where we should be asking these questions? There’s a note at the site’s old address saying it’s moved, but no indication where. Anybody know?

Update: Okay, I just heard from Stuck himself: The site has been moved to http://stuckfunky.wordpress.com
