Jeremy and Mom

Cidu Bill on Apr 29th 2008

jeremyandmom.jpgThis is actually a fairly clever idea: The Zits cartoonists — or some flunkies at the publishing house — went through the run of the series and picked out a book’s worth of strips about Jeremy Duncan and his mother. It’s being advertised as a Mother’s Day gift and I’d be tempted to buy one myself, except my mother has zero interest in comic strips and I’m sure she’s still convinced reading them will rot my brain.(I think that ship has already sailed, Mom)

If this book is at all successful, by whatever sales standards constitute “successful” for a comic strip reprint book, I can certainly imagine Baby Blues, Jump Start, FBoFW and other strips jumping on the bandwagon in time for next year’s holiday.

Is there enough truth to this to even warrant the exaggeration? I’ve had three cell phones, and I don’t think I’ve had to open the (thin) instruction booklet for any of them. It’s a phone. You press some buttons and you magically get to talk to somebody far away.

Okay, I’m not altogether sure I understand the logistics of what’s happening here, but I suspect this is partly because I’m trying not to think too much about it. I doubt there’s any interpretation that doesn’t qualify it for the Ewww Files, though

Jumping Back to 2004

Cidu Bill on Apr 25th 2008

jumper.jpg
I just came across this comic, which was on the CIDU page four years ago and was one of the rare comics that never really got explained (”Arlo jumped a lot of broads” was the most frequent guess, but I think we all hoped the explanation would be something better than that).

The first two panels, fine: “self-esteem” comes out “selfish stream” in Ruthese. Nothing about the third and fourth panels makes sense to me.

Saturday Morning Cocaine

Okay, this was supposed to go online Saturday morning, which is when I generally post Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal CIDUs, but something (or more likely I) screwed up and since so many people use RSS for this site, I’ve learned to just leave comics online even if they’ve been posted in error.

The Evidence Against Joel Courtney: Major Update

Cidu Bill on Apr 20th 2008

  • The initial report released listed circumstantial evidence that was weak at best, leading to an interesting discussion of whether a jury should convict a defendant based on the firm belief that he’s guilty even if the evidence is lacking.The D.A. has now made public some significantly more persuasive evidence (updated article, and your comments)

The Irony of Ironic

Cidu Bill on Apr 20th 2008

ironic2.jpg
My best guess is that we’re supposed to think Alanis Morissette has gotten the inspiration for “Ironic” (”It’s like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife…”) but it turns out she’s somehow instead been inspired to write “Hand in My Pocket.”
 
Which is, I guess, at least by her definition, ironic.
