Does anybody with teenage boys think this is a joke or have any idea why Walt and Connie are reacting the way they are?

Saturday Morning CID-Ewww

Cidu Bill on Aug 28th 2010

Elyrest sent this for the Ewww Files, and I don’t doubt that it qualifies — but the “oily” reference is a CIDU for me.

Leaving the cell phone inside a loaf of bread after making a sandwich… is this actually something somebody’s ever done? What’s the joke here?

He should really take it up with Batiuk, who draws him to look like he’s at least 70 years old. And not a spry 70-year-old either.
Anyway, a discount’s a discount, isn’t it? And we’ve seen how tight Funky is with a buck (also see here).

Janice Rey: I understand the joke, but I don’t understand what kid Katy’s age would specify COLOR TV.


I’ll go one better and wonder why anybody of any age would specify “color tv” other than in, say, 1965, when a new color tv might have been a great novelty -Bill

I Spry

Cidu Bill on Aug 20th 2010

A question mostly for the geezers, I guess…

My niece recently defined to the word “spry” as a compliment directed at older people. And I don’t know… is it really? Or is it more a “damning with faint praise” sort of thing, like “at your age, I’d expect you to be a lot more feeble than you are.”

My personal favorite age-related left-handed compliment took place a few years ago when I participated in a Frisbee football game with a bunch of college age kids, well less than half my age. One of them said to me, afterward, “Jesus, you must have been real good when you were young.”

I really wanted to say “I’m better than you now, you young whippersnapper,” but I opted for politeness and just thanked him instead.
