Classic Arlo

Cidu Bill on Jan 31st 2011

I didn’t realize that a very old version of the Arlo Page was still live online. If anybody’s interested, it’s here.

I’m pretty sure all the links on the page are dead.

Morris Keesan, one of several people sending this to me, wondered “Is this one of those where Guy said something over the phone and Rodd totally misheard him?”

Ignorance is Ignorance

Colin is 9 years old.

Once again, I’m struck by the fact that Len and Abby are easily the worst parents in the history of comics. And of course by that I don’t mean humorously-incompetent-in-a-comic-strip-way bad parents, but there-are-parents-like-this-in-real-life-and-holy-shit-why-is-there-no-law-providing-for-mandatory-sterilization bad parents.

Oh, and by the way, Abby’s a psychologist.

Gotta Defend Sarah Palin on This One

Cidu Bill on Jan 28th 2011

She’s drawing heat for this comment:

The President’s State of the Union address boiled down to this message: “The era of big government is here as long as I am, so help me pay for it.” He dubbed it a “Winning The Future” speech, but the title’s acronym seemed more accurate than much of the content.

No, this was Obama’s screw-up all the way: you do not coin a phrase without thinking about the acronym first.

Okay, number one, the first two panels make perfect sense to me. “Poker night” though? Not so much. Or at all.

I could understand both Holly’s and Val’s reactions here if Holly had said “a f****** cop-out.” But she didn’t. So I don’t.

A Tale of Two Bar Mitzvahs

Cidu Bill on Jan 24th 2011

It’s traditional, for a child approaching his or her bar- or bat mitzvah to choose a “mitzvah [blessing] project.” My younger son ended up volunteering with a local Big Brothers-type organization. Close to six years later, they’re still hanging out together.

And scarily enough, young Noah is now gearing up for his own bar mitzvah, and his project is raising money to bring water to communities around the world where people are dying for the lack of it. If you’re feeling at all charitable today, please visit this site and consider giving them a few bucks: not for me, not for Noah, but because this is one of those times when throwing money at a problem can actually help.

The Year 2015 Called…

Cidu Bill on Jan 22nd 2011

We have tags, of course, for comics that really should have been published years earlier than they were (or not at all) — but I don’t ever remember seeing a comic that showed up several years early: unless I’m misreading this, Arlo already has himself a 3D television, which seems highly unlikely.

Death and taxes are certain, and the dentists certainly agree, but I’m not seeing the connection.

What’s Up, Deus?

What’s up with this child’s question? Where did he pull the whole “people get paid to work for God but people work for the devil for free” business out of? If anything, I’d think that Lucifer’s people are the ones who are in it for the bucks.

Duck

Cidu Bill on Jan 18th 2011

A Pennsylvania woman is suing Disney, claiming that on her last visit to Disney World, an employee in a Donald Duck costume groped her breasts, leaving her with post traumatic stress disorder resulting in difficulties eating and sleeping.

Now, I’m in no way excusing what this guy did. I’m perfectly okay with him seeing the inside of a jail cell. There’s a really simple rule of thumb here: you don’t grab a woman’s breasts without her permission. Ain’t really complicated.

That being said though… post traumatic stress disorder? Seriously? If you’re suffering from post traumatic stress disorder because a guy in a Donald Duck costume groped your breasts — to the extent that a guy in a Donald Duck costume can grope anybody’s breasts — then I’m sorry, but I have to think you had some issues before ever setting foot in the Magic Kingdom.
