Woof?

Dave sent this to me as a LOL, but I already had it queued up as a CIDU. I mean I get what’s going on, this is the doggy equivalent of watching a woman taking off her clothing and doing naughty things… but what’s the actual joke here other than replacing people with dogs? And for that matter, how did Hilburn slip this one by the syndicate?

If you’re going to send me your book to review…

Cidu Bill on Jul 29th 2011

…don’t write in the first chapter that “the right to a speedy trial is actually contra productive” — because unless you quickly convince me that that this somehow relates to Nicaraguan freedom fighters, I’m not going to read 300 pages by a sloppy writer who has an incompetent editor.

Bureau of Motor Vehicles? Because they give vision tests (when you get your very first license)?

Ticketing Texters

Cidu Bill on Jul 22nd 2011

The Philadelphia PD has a new plan to “warn” anybody they see texting while walking. Only a warning. No plans down the road for this cash-starved city to give actual tickets. If you believe that, I think the Ben Franklin Bridge is for sale.

There’s a poll seeking your thoughts on the matter, but it’s not here: I’m putting together a new site for Crime, Justice & America magazine (again???)  and the poll is part of the site’s test drive. Honestly, it’s still in the beta-beta stage, but the poll is working, so you’re all invited to stop by and vote. Or comment. Or whatever.

Adventures in Boston

Cidu Bill on Jul 20th 2011

I was walking through downtown Boston the other day when a ten-year-old girl stared at me and sneered as if I were a child molester. A Nazi child molester. A Nazi child molester with body odor. I was starting to take it personally until I realized she was focusing on my Yankees cap.

Moon

Cidu Bill on Jul 20th 2011

And we’re back live.

Of course by “live” I mean I put this comic in the queue back in June and it would have gone live this morning whether I’d come home from Boston or not.

And it happens to be several years old.

But still.

Here comes the story of the hurricane

They’re the Miami Hurricanes so there’s a hurricane in the stadium??

(Oddly enough, I could almost accept this: I went to a Brooklyn Cyclones game last summer which was held up for 2 1/2 hours by one of the heaviest rainstorms I’ve ever experienced)
