Well yes, that does seem blindingly obvious; but what’s the joke?

Lehman Brothers. Bankrupt financial services firm. what’s the joke, though?

I don’t know that this is a CIDU exactly — but I don’t follow Cheese’s logic, since cheese certainly does exist on its own.
 
In fact, it’s known to stand alone

Rayal was amused by the similarity between this New Yorker cartoon that appeared shortly before Election Day

Okay, my ignorance about cats is fairly well-known (though I did wind up catsitting a couple of them last summer), but… Don’t house cats use litter boxes?

The Cone of Non-Silence

Cidu Bill on Jan 27th 2009

An observation, not a CIDU: Though Hilburn made no effort to make her physically recognizable, he was confident enough that the bra would be self-explanatory that he chose not to name her in a caption.
I just thought this was neat.

Is it no longer politically correct to call it Chinese New Year? I swear, this is a serious question. I really believe there are people whose job it is to tell people that hitherto common words and phrases are not insulting to them.

A couple of people sent me this. I see it simply as Superbaby’s cape being turned around to make a bib. Any dissenting opinions?

Watch the Hand

Cidu Bill on Jan 22nd 2009

Lola: I’ve seen other versions of this obsessive/compulsive joke and, once again, find it amusing. Not milk out of the nose funny, but OK. However, I am confused by the placement of the one man’s hand in the second panel.

Tiffany Gone Wild

Okay, unless that’s a very thick t-shirt, Miss Phelps might not have thought this out very well. Is that where Greg Evans is going with this? You know that’s where Jimmy Johnson would be going with this.

By the way, is it even possible to put on a t-shirt the way Tiffany is?
