Farmer: This Frazz made me LOL, partly due to a misunderstood punchline. Given the focus on T.Y.R.E and B.I.K.E., I missed the British-spelling joke at the end and assumed she told Caulfield to S.T.F.U., which would be quite fitting for their relationship, if not actually likely.

    Seriously, what’s going on with Buni? I see he’s being threatened with the snow blower, but why does Buni have snowman’s battered hat?

    They killed the snowman with the snow blower.

    Was the snow blower labelled for those southern zombies who’ve never seen one?

    In panel 3 it clearly said “snow blower” on the side and you saw the look of terror on the snowman’s face.

    @Lola -
    Like newspapers, the hat jammed the auger.

    Lola: snow blower instead of wood chipper. They didn’t only kill the snowman with the snow blower — that’s also how they disposed of the body.

    Except for the hat and the carrot.

    So what’s the punch line on the Frazz one if it’s not STFU?

    @ Scott E (8) - Any words the teacher might have used are irrelevant, the point is that she spoke them using British spelling (as in “tyre” and “colour”), and not American (”tire”, “color”).

    The punchline on the Frazz comic is supposed to be that Caulfield’s response was “Colourfully” (the British spelling) as opposed to “Colorfully” (the American spelling).

    (It’s easy to miss if you’re in the habit of normally ignoring the ou/o difference. It’s even easier to miss when the word is broken up onto separate lines.)

    Concerning what Farmer said about laughing at the wrong joke in the Frazz cartoon, isn’t it a bit strange when you laugh at a joke, then you look at it again and you realize you got the joke wrong?

    When it happens to me, it makes me want to share my version of the joke with others, because otherwise it just kinda “feels wrong” to have the joke slip into oblivion without even a chuckle of acknowledgement.

    J-L,

    Exactly why I sent it to Bill. Thought my version was much funnier, and an Arlo as well if it had been true.
