    Sure! Reading left to right, the “U” should be on the other side of the “Q.”

    (1) You’ve evidently never been to Dubuque, Molly J.

    (2) That picture was from a visit to Greece, right?

    @ Proginoskes 2(2) - I was about to object that the Greek alphabet doesn’t have a “Q” in it, when I realized that they were visiting, and had someone take a snapshot of them.

    A Q is just an O with a boner!

    Dragon #4: But just yesterday I saw promos for a music or performance group that seemed to have a feminist outlook, and the uppercase Q’s in their name seemed meant to resemble the circle-with-cross-below sign used for Venus and “female”.

    And sometimes, U doesn’t even come at all (QI, for example).

    Damn considerate of Q.

    I’m sure it’s a comment on how most couples agree on a side of the bed each sleeps on, and obviously, U is used to being on the other side. I am clearly not all the way awake though, as it took me until Jeff’s (7) comment to catch your double entendre, Bill.

    Seeing U next to Q like that just looks… awkward.

    (Just auqward… See what I mean?)

    This cartoon was initially confusing to me until I realized that it is a simple visual play on the fact that all English words that begin with a Q are followed by a U. (queen, quite, quota etc.) In other words the U always belongs on the right of the Q, not vice versa….

    … and the last contestant crosses the finish line!

    At first glance, I immediately assumed the Arlo joke was being made! I completely thought “U” was going to have a dissatisfied look on her face and that the spelling rule would be the hidden understood punchline! Interesting effect this comic had on me!

    She later left him for Smokey Robinson.
