Maybe the CIDU Page Should Have a Mascot…

Cidu Bill on Aug 27th 2009

Greg: I finally got the “joke” when I Googled “Bevo” and figured out they were all school mascots. But, when I went to the Wikipedia page listing US College mascots, I couldn’t find “Nova” listed. Any idea which school Nova belongs to?

LOL- August 28

Cidu Bill on Aug 27th 2009

No Ewww Files this week, but a whole lot of LOLs; so we’ll have a Friday LOL page this weekend as well as the usual Monday LOL page.

(of course this would have worked out somewhat better if I’d set the page to go online Friday morning rather than Thursday morning…)

If this is what they’re teaching in middle school

then I can understand how Herb can be so abyssmally stupid

 Of course, this doesn’t explain why Heart was learning differential calculus of whatever it was in second grade a few months back…


Pinny points out, by the way, that “the flash card reads ‘9×5′ in all three panels. Why is she asking for ‘5×8′ and even ‘5×9′?”

Someone told me it’s all happening at the zoo

Cidu Bill on Aug 24th 2009

Pinny: What exactly did he do at the zoo to get himself banned? If it involved his wife, then this should probably get an Arlo Award. If it did not, then this should probably be a EWWW contender.

The first time I heard this joke, the punchline was “Unfortunately, they’ll never let us in Schrafft’s again” -Bill

Double Dipping

Cidu Bill on Aug 22nd 2009

Years and years ago, back when B.C. was a humor strip, the “Dip in the Road” gag was one of the classics:

Does today’s update even make any sense as a joke, other than as a reference to the earlier strip?

”Do We Not Pay You Enough?”

Cidu Bill on Aug 18th 2009

Chris Reaves: Okay, this Doonesbury went over my head. Is the idea that the birthers won’t believe even the actual physical document? That they won’t show up to see it? That displaying it would be giving in to terrorists? That the birth certificate in fact DOES say “Kenya” on it? None are really funny. Furthermore, the language itself seems to imply that it’s the last option (the sentence trailing off where it does suggests the problem is with what they would see) which would be an incredibly uncharacteristic joke for Trudeau.

Every Geezer Here Sent Me This One as a ”Geezer Strip”

Cidu Bill on Aug 18th 2009

A few weeks ago, my 16-year-old son came out of his room wearing an unbuttoned sweater-vest over a t-shirt. I greeted him with, “Hey, Ralphie boy!” and my wife laughed and he looked at us as if we were from Mars. But that’s okay, because we’re used to it.

Many people sent this one as a CIDU, and Christine Eubanks added that it was an Ewww for her even though she didn’t get it.
