    I liked them all today! Tough to pick out the best one, but I say Buni edged out the Russian nesting doll funeral.

    I think the dialog in the second-to-last one should have been “I guess a flash mob isn’t what I thought it was, either”.

    Why is there a tiny American flag waving as part of the Dark Side of the Horse comic?

    @ PeterW (4) - I agree: why? - In addition, if the cartoonist went to all that trouble to animate the flag, why didn’t he bother to animate the arrow motion that is supposed to be part of the humor? I don’t really think that the strip was very well executed at all, but the rest of the collection more than made up for this one dud.

    As John Small Berries (6) pointed out to PeterW, the US flag on the Dark Side of the Horse site is probably for Memorial Day (which is today).

    SELECT * FROM wp_users WHERE ID = '1' LIMIT 1

    I didn’t notice the flag, because I keep “enable animated images” turned off in my browser, but my guess is that the cartoonist didn’t animate the flag, but merely inserted an animated-US-flag GIF that he found somewhere.
    But Memorial Day in the United States is tomorrow (Monday, 27 May 2013), not today, and in any case that’s not today’s strip.

    Sideshow Bob is still a CIDU for me, because I haven’t looked it up yet.

    Morris, I’ll pass along the results of my quick “research”. Sideshow Bob is a character from The Simpsons who has either a hat or a growth on his head that looks like palm fronds. So that is him standing on that island, mistaken for just a tree by the potential rescuers.

    mitch4, it’s supposed to actually be Sideshow Bob’s hair. Yeah, the Simpson’s is not known for realistic depictions of hair….

    The Dark Side of the Horse was a CIDU for me…the fact that there’s an arrow sign means there’s going to be an actual arrow? Is that it, or am I missing something?

    The animated flag is to tell you that this copy of the strip is in English.

    turquoisecow, I understood the arrow on the sign to “become” the arrow whooshing into the tree right after he passed. Quasi-metaphysical or something. Not atypical of that strip.

    Have to admit it took me a while to get the last one. Had to expand my view to see the markings on the side of the plane & tank.

    The Sideshow Bob one was awesome. XD Kudos to the colorist as well, for knowing the reference. I can see that one backfiring easily.

    Mark in Boston, you have to hold the paper out so the wind will wave it. Low tech gif.

    Around here, car back window stickers of beach flip-flops are popular. I have always thought they look like the bomb/target stickers on the side of warplanes. I find it rather boastful of the car owners to show off how many tourists they’ve taken out.

    16-18: I heard Buzz Aldrin on the radio today, on his book tour. He mentioned bumping into moon-landing skeptics who insist on challenging him. One was making a fuss about the flag they had which seemed to be waving in an impossible wind, and he ran out of patience explaining how they went to a lot of trouble to create that impression.

    The did the “fake moon landing” on Mythbusters. The flag waved because it was flexible and weighted on the bottom, it doesn’t need air to wave because a pendulum works on gravity, not air pressure.

    I don’t see what the fuss is about, all you have to do is go up there and look. It’s not like they picked up after themselves.

    Yes, though I think I caught that this was on a previous encounter and what finally provoked him over the line was a series of “Why are you lying?” accusations.

    Thanks, Norm @14. The last one was a head scratcher for me too, until I read your comment and the little light came on.

    Still not sure about the Buni strip. Is it just that the car (ex)owner doesn’t grasp the difference between “lost” and “stolen”?

    guero - It’s not that anyone is mistaking lost and stolen - appearances are deceiving in this instance. The cat isn’t lost and neither is the necklace. The car is stolen though - by the cat who most likely stole the necklace too. Cats are sneaky.

    What do you know? I just happened to view the Buni strip on a different computer (with a different screen setting) and there a FOUR panels!!! No wonder it didn’t make sense.

    Buni actually did make me laugh out loud when I read it. I did not expect anything like that as the punch line (punch picture?).
