Needless to say, a lot of people sent me today’s Arlo and Janis. Jimmy clearly slipped an Arlo Award comic past the syndicate’s censors.

Professional Courtesy

Of course I understand what professional courtesy is, and why it might apply in this case. What I don’t understand is, what’s the joke here?

School Days, School Days, Dear Old Snow and Flu Days…

Cidu Bill on May 27th 2009

Just wondering… Has anybody ever heard of “flu days”? Other than during this year’s Swine Flu Panic, that is. Seriously, can somebody explain why we’re treating this like Son of the Black Plague? Sure, it can be a dangerous illness — but so can “seasonal flu” (a term apparently nobody needed until this year; think “analog clock”), which so far has killed, no exaggeration, more than one thousand times as many Americans this year as Swine Flu has.New York City Health Commissioner Thomas Frieden said yesterday, “Our hearts go out to their families” of two New Yorkers who apparently died from Swine Flu last week, adding “as for everybody who died of other causes last week, hey, life’s a bitch.”

Keep Out

Keera Ann Fox: Who or what is he trying to keep out, and why does he look like he really wants to beat whatever/whoever it is up so it’s just an advantage if whoever/whatever comes through the door? (At least I think that’s a door.)

That Should Do It

Laurie Wylie: I haven’t had my coffee yet, but I have no idea what he’s holding in the last panel that would be a revelation. Or maybe the joke is just that it’s large and obviously (?) man-made, after the other guy was talking about looking for something tiny?

Shall I Be a Twit?

Cidu Bill on May 25th 2009

Speaking of Twitter… It has been suggested that I set up a CIDU Twitter account for the purpose of notifying people when this site is updated. What with the RSS feed and the fact that most people know there’s always a 12:02am update Monday through Friday, would enough people find this useful to make the enterprise worthwhile?

S.P. Charles: Bill, I’m not trying to draw you back into the Funkyverse… but I was hoping somebody could explain to me why Summer thinks it’s a bad thing that her father’s lifelong friend knows where he hides his spare house key.

2.0

Cidu Bill on May 23rd 2009

Mitchell Marks: It’s not synchronicity, it’s the same cartoon from the same cartoonist for the same date. But the words changed just a little between syndicators. Is it clear who that was done by, and why? I assume it’s the cartoonist and he had an improving afterthought that caught up with the panel some places but not everywhere.
(I like the “pictures” one better.)
