Geezer Alert or Not?

Is this geezer material, as Andréa suggests,or will “like a broken record” endure past the point where most people are familiar with its genesis?

Arlo or Not?

Mark M questions whether that’s actually a nose; and if not, this strip “would give the relationship between Sarge and Beetle a whole different perspective”

March of Dimes Walkathon: The Recap

Cidu Bill on Apr 28th 2013

marchtohelp.png

For the seventh consecutive year, CIDU contributions surpassed the previous year’s: $677 this year, compared to $594 last year. The book is closed on the New Jersey walk — but if anybody wanted to contribute and didn’t get around to it, the graphic still works: it links to my son’s March of Dimes page now (which will stay live until the Boston walk on the 11th), but I’m monitoring his page and any contributions that come through the graphic will “count” as CIDU contributions (we’re both part of Team Bickel Boys).

Once again, thanks so much for helping out.

It’s just his neurosis that oughta be curbed

Cidu Bill on Apr 27th 2013

Those who hate-read Funky Winkerbean over at Son of Stuck Funky are of the general consensus that Tom Batiuk meant “neurotic,” not Nordic:

And today’s “probable misuse of neurotic” synchronicity is completed over at Tina’s Groove, and I have to tag this “CIDU” as well:

The meta-text actually works as a joke on its own: “All time machine systems nominal … T-minus ten … eleven …”

CJA: ”Porn on a Plane” Professor Sentenced

Cidu Bill on Apr 23rd 2013

Also, some sidebars to the Boston Marathon bombings: fraudulent websites, the teen whom the New York Post accused of being the bomber, how this might affect future marathons, and why we shouldn’t discuss Chechnya.
