    The Bizarro comic reminded me of this meme:

    3-D printers are real things, btw … With them, you can build machine parts which are already hooked together.

    I like all these, but especially the Bizarro.

    The Loose Parts is funny even though I have an inkling I’m misunderstanding it. Is it that we get to understand their discussion as human/English words, but in reality they can only bark — and the pizza place takes barking as a pizza order with “bark”??? [Go ahead, tell me it’s obvious.]

    mitch4 — you seem to understand it just fine. I don’t get your puzzlement.

    What I don’t get is why they think they would have any more success ordering in person.

    If they order in person, they can point at what they want, or just retrieve it themselves.

    I agree with mitch4 that the “bark” pun was good, but a little too obvious. On the other hand, if the dogs had complained about “redwood mulch” on their pizza, it’s fairly probable that it would have ended up here as a CIDU, instead of a LOL.

    The dogs should order on-line (as I do), not over the phone. There’s an app for that, of course.

    “If they order in person, they can point at what they want, or just retrieve it themselves.”

    Of course… As long as there is a pointer and/or a retriever in the pack.

    … and if the dogs went into the store to order, would the counterperson give them a dog treat?

    The “Loose Parts” cartoon where the dogs are still able to order a pizza despite it being covered with bark isn’t too far-fetched for me:

    When I was in high school, I was with a group of friends and we decided to have delivered two large pepperoni pizzas. One guy dialed the number of the pizza place and, only hearing his side of the conversation, this is what we heard (from start to finish):

    [pause] Yeah. [pause] Yeah. [pause] [Hangs up phone]

    When he hung up the phone, we asked him if he ordered the pizzas, and he responded affirmatively. We told him that we thought it was odd that the only thing he said was “yeah” twice, and he told us that they were having a special for two large pizzas. Apparently our order exactly matched (or came very close to) that special. On top of that, caller id was quite new, but apparently the pizza delivery place had it at that time.

    So it comes as no surprise to me that the dogs were able to order a pizza with bark as a topping.

    (It’s spooky when businesses know you so well that all you have to do to get what you want is to say “yes” twice.)

    Amazing how the Mutt & Jeff strip managed to recycle one of the few jokes that’s older than Mutt & Jeff.

  14. DPWally Nov 26th 2012 at 03:10 pm 14

    Mutt and Jeff go into a bar, or maybe soda shop or drug store, to scam a few sodas?? I could see that maybe in 1940 if the cartoonist had to pretend bars and drinking don’t exists to get published in a family paper. But in the post-Andy Capp era I think we all know that M&J are lushes who would rather scam booze than soda.

    Please tell me we’re in the post-Andy Capp era, not the zombie-Andy Capp era.

    I can’t read the copyright date, but from the style of the drawing, this looks to me like Mutt & Jeff PRE-Andy Capp

  16. Chakolate Nov 26th 2012 at 03:27 pm 16

    Sodas? Really? Looks like they’re trying to get a G rating. Kinda blunts the joke, I think.

  17. Mark in Boston Nov 26th 2012 at 07:09 pm 17

    The Mutt & Jeff probably came out during Prohibition, therefore soda, no beer.

  18. DPWally Nov 26th 2012 at 07:25 pm 18

    M&J copyright 1991, which presumably isn’t the original creation date.

    (1) That dog on the left of the “Loose Parts” comic is part setter, part pointer, and part chow. He’s setting and pointing at the chow.

    (2) Re “Speedbump”: Will the cops be ready as well?

    Mark M @ 9 - hilarious. Thanks.

    MK @ 12 - “Sorry. I spell my name DANGER.”

    @ Mutt & Jeff - 1991 cannot be the original date, since the strip ceased regular syndication in 1982. It seems likely that the original copyright information was placed in the second panel, but was removed when the cartoon was recycled and/or colorized (note the truncated foot of one of the bar stools).
