Is this political cartoon neglecting to make any clear point?

Yeah, the teachers aren’t doing right by their students, but what’s actually going on here?

Farmville

Several people sent me today’s Frazz strip, because it relates to a topic we’ve discussed so often here. Since we seem to be discussing it again because of this F-Minus strip, I figured I’d simplify things by just adding the Frazz to this post.

Snooki

Okay, granted I don’t know a whole lot about that Snooki person — but I was under the impression that “miniaturized” was not the first word that comes to mind when describing her.

Okay, wouldn’t this make more sense — or, you know, sense — if these were adults?

Or am I missing something here?

Elmonicity

Cidu Bill on Feb 25th 2011

Timothy Carignan: Context: Fleshy, the hairless cat, got a hold of an Elmo puppet. He’s been pestering everybody with it. At the beginning of this strip, he’s using the puppet to try to lure a mouse from its hole.

Observation: In panel 2, “Elmo” is waving to the mouse. A nice friendly wave.

Question: In the last panel, is the puppet beckoning him out, or making a rude gesture? It’s hard to tell because Elmo doesn’t have fingers.

The Cult

They pulled the ad. They apologized. They high-fived one another, ecstatic about the nationwide free publicity.

Actually, Kool-Aid should have sued them.

And you know, you have to feel sorry for Kool-Aid: even if they had used Kool-Aid in Jonestown, Kool-Aid didn’t deserve being forever associated with mass murder/suicide (the fact that they earn millions of dollars selling colored sugar watter notwithstanding) — but in fact Jones only sprung for some off-brand colored sugar water.

I’m fine until Arlo’s final line.

I suspect, by the way, that I ran this one when it first appeared back in 2003.

XKCDs That Made Us Laugh Out Loud

Cidu Bill on Feb 21st 2011

Naomi D.: I don’t even know what this game is but I found the last panel extremely funny - especially considering that when my husband’s wisdom teeth came out, I came home to find him speaking gibberish and hallucinating on the painkillers! (that was 25 years ago, it wasn’t so funny at the time.)

Watson

Cidu Bill on Feb 21st 2011

I think people are making way too big a deal about the fact that a computer beat two former champions on Jeopardy. When a computer creates a game, and a human has to spend a full year learning how to play it, then we’ll talk.

No Laughing Matter (Important CIDU notice)

Cidu Bill on Feb 18th 2011

For the foreseeable future, Comics That Made Us Laugh Out Loud will shift to Mondays and there won’t be any regularly-scheduled weekend updates (though as always you never know when unscheduled posts will turn up). Fear not, everything’s fine in CIDUland… but the backlog of CIDU comics is running a bit low, so by eliminating regular weekend posts and replacing Monday CIDUs with the LOL page, I pretty much eliminate the possibility that the queue will actually run dry.

And practically speaking, traffic is pretty low on weekends anyway: most of you visit during work hours.

Nothing new here, actually: I believe this is the third time I’ve made the same change in order to build up the queue. We’ll probably be back to 7-days-a-week before you know it.

Facebook Post of the Week

Monica Lewinsky will turn 38 years old this week. Can you believe it? Why, it seems like only yesterday she was crawling around the White House on her hands and knees, putting everything in her mouth. They grow up so fast, don’t they?
