7 of Bob Mankoff’s Favorite “Jewish” Comics

Cidu Bill on Apr 30th 2017

Mankoff being, for those who don’t know, the New Yorker’s outgoing Cartoon Editor.

Honestly, given the source, I’d have expected a more impressive list: I’d have put three of these, maybe four, on the LOL Page.

Not that that’s chopped liver, of course…

Morris County’s Walkathon Top 10

Cidu Bill on Apr 29th 2017

Thank you all so much!

By the way, I know of three other donations which for various reasons did not get counted toward the “Cidu Bill” total — so you guys are even more awesome than the official list indicates.

We’re Back!

Cidu Bill on Apr 29th 2017

Of course if you’re reading this, you already knew that. At least GoDaddy quickly determined and admitted the problem was at their end.

This time.

Can you imagine how much of my remaining hair I’d have been pulling out if the site was down and we were still a few dollars short of the Walkathon goal?

Walkathon 2017

Cidu Bill on Apr 26th 2017

marchofdimes.PNGAs of Wednesday afternoon, with four days remaining, we’ve raised $615 toward the goal of $1012. I can’t stress enough that $615 is an impressive amount — and is that’s the total when the Walkathon begins Sunday morning, both I and the March of Dimes will be grateful.

Of course if a last-minute surge puts us over the target, all the better.

They’re actually predicting decent weather this year, which would make for a pleasant change: my strategy, of late, has been to wear sneakers I know I won’t want for the next few days, while they dry out.

Of course, weather forecasts seem to have been getting less and less reliable the past few months. Maybe my imagination…

Anyway, the donation links are both above, and in the left-hand sidebar.

Stunningly bad “eyewitness” identification, or the first guy did it and Ewww, or does “#1″ describe the method of assault?

Avocado

My best guess here is that once avocados ripen, they’re good for about 47 minutes before they start going bad.

Actually, wouldn’t the damage to a human friend have been just as bad, and possibly less easy to fix?

I guess John Deering, at least, works under a two- rather than three-week lead time

Cidu Bill on Apr 24th 2017

Have lead times been shortened over the years? Three weeks for a newspaper strip has always been axiomatic, no exceptions.

Unless Deering was referring to earlier incident and just got lucky?

Not sure whether this qualifies for the “Oy” tag, since I’ve seen it in person. A lot.
