An Historic Event

Cidu Bill on Jul 31st 2008

So I’m reading in the paper today that yesterday morning Jay Serdula became the first person with Asperger’s Syndrome to swim across Lake Ontario.

Setting aside the question of why this was considered newsworthy at all… Who the hell keep track of this sort of thing and why?

Black and White

Most schools still have blackboards as well — but whether or not they do, the white slates are never called blackboards. They go by various names including… wait for it… whiteboards.Yes, I know, I’m commenting on the logic of a Family Circus comic.

Patrick Lenon sent me today’s One Big Happy strip which, like last week’s Adam strips, veered off into very unexpected territory.

Who

Cidu Bill on Jul 30th 2008

Yesterday’s Days of Thunder, by popular demand. The consensus seems to be that figuring out who the man is will lead to an explanation, while Lola adds: “He’s ‘lovelied’ up a piece of sod by putting a bow on it and it’s some kind of a pet since it has a leash. You know, like sod could run in the road and get hit. It’s so sad when that happens.

Lasik is eye surgery. Got it. I don’t see the joke, though.

Upheaval

Cidu Bill on Jul 28th 2008

Cedar was the first to send me this pair of strips from today’s papers:
upheaval2.gif
upheaval1.gif
Not true synchronicity, since the comics refer to an historical event commemorated today (in his blog, Jimmy Johnson writes, “I’ll let you in on a little secret: all cartoonists have calendars featuring every holiday and commemoration imaginable, plus a few more. On days of desperation — ie, days they have to draw — the cartoonists will flip through to see ‘what’s up.’”), but it’s more than passing strange that two cartoonists independently chose to reference The Great Upheaval.

The only question in my mind is, when this gets explained, will I have to add an Arlo tag or an Ewww tag?

A lot of people sent this to me so far today. I’m halfway expecting Jimmy Johnson to e-mail me any minute telling me he’s not quite sure what it means either.
