And a happy new year…

Cidu Bill on Dec 31st 2012

…to all the visitors to this site, who are responsible for making it as much fun as it is; and to the cartoonists, good sports one and all, who collectively entertain us every single day of the year.

2012 Comic Strip Question

Cidu Bill on Dec 31st 2012

Same question I asked at the end of last year and the year before: What comic strip did you discover this year that you now read religiously (and that you’d recommend to your fellow CIDU readers)? Feel free to include links, because the “responses can’t contain more than 2 links” function has been disabled.

The two that come to mind for me are Buni and Head Trip (though Sandra and Woo is growing on me).

LOL Housecleaning

Cidu Bill on Dec 31st 2012

Going through my mess of a hard drive, I came across a ton of LOLs I might or might not have posted here; so I’m going to just post all of them and then delete them from my computer and start fresh. I figure even if only a third of them are really “new,” that’s still going make a pretty good collection.

It’s a New Year’s Eve tradition: Armstrong posts one of these Earth-sun-moon strips, and I upload it to the CIDU page because I don’t know what the hell he’s trying to say.

I firmly believe that he draws these a year ahead, on the previous New Year’s Eve, after too many drinks, so they make perfect sense to him at the time.

Paradoxes That Made Us Laugh Out Loud

Cidu Bill on Dec 28th 2012

  • Morris Keesan: hovertext: The prosecution calls Gottfried Leibniz.

    (In case this is a CYDU: Zeno’s paradox says that you can never get from point A to point B, because first you have to go halfway, and then you have to go half of the remaining distance, etc. Leibniz was one of the inventors of calculus, which effectively answers and explains away Zeno’s paradox.)

Don’t mean to single anybody out, but…

Cidu Bill on Dec 24th 2012

“The Grinch’s heart grew three sizes so he died” has become the “Hey, if there’s global warming why is it so cold?” of Christmas comics.

I’m tempted some year to collect all the “Grinch died from an enlarged heart” gags and post them all in one place on December 24.

Yeah, I know, bah humbug.

Ugly Christmas Sweater Synchronicity

Cidu Bill on Dec 22nd 2012

It’s kind of tough to find real synchronicity in Christmas comics — but since I’d never seen Ugly Christmas Sweater Parties referenced in a comic before, and then saw two in one day…

sweaterrhymes.gif

sweaterbrevity.gif

And I’m not entirely grasping the second one: ugly Christmas-related characters sweating? Though Frosty (?) isn’t particularly ugly, is he? I mean for an anthropomorphized snowman.

And I’m wondering… how common are Ugly Sweater Parties anyway in the real world?
