    This is a complete CIDU for me, unless it is simply a “ck” for “t” exchange. But if that were the case, I would think it should be Lois sending them, not Clark.

    No, replace the t with a d. Think Anthony Wiener.

    Thanks to Kamino Neko @2 for the correction. As Homer Simpson would say: “Doh!

    P.S. In retrospect it’s kind of amusing that the word “tick” could work for either gender. Perhaps Hilburn should have picked a first name that would work either way, too, such as “Robin” or “Leslie”, instead of the deinitively male “Clark”.

    That watch wasn’t careful with who the tick pics were sent to, They are the tock of the town.

    On a differant note, he likes all those young girls going digital online, they really wind him up.

    Like SHE hasn’t admired Big Ben and other clock towers.

    When the picture shows the big hand pointing up and the little one pointing straight down, it is called “sixting.”

    I suppose a chronograph’s relationship status is “It’s complicated”?

  9. Mona May 6th 2017 at 10:24 pm 9

    Perhaps it was originally “tock” pics and the censors allowed it to be changed to “tick”, which is sometimes considered a softer term.

  10. Mona May 6th 2017 at 10:25 pm 10

    Or should I have said “less offensive” term.

  11. Powers May 6th 2017 at 10:43 pm 11

    Mona, I doubt it. Because “*ock pic” doesn’t rhyme, “*ick pic” is far far more common.

  12. Mona May 6th 2017 at 11:17 pm 12

    Powers, I hadn’t thought of that. I’m aware people do that, but am not familiar with the term itself. Makes sense.

    Now that just ticks me off.

    … Huh. You know, I’d always thought Ticks were insects.

    “You know, I’d always thought Ticks were insects.”

    The Tick is a superhero, defender of The City along with sidekick Moon Moth, and other heroes Die Fliedermaus, American Maid, and the Sewer Urchin.

    No moderation ? I am flabbergasted.

  21. Cidu Bill May 8th 2017 at 06:05 am 21

    Olivier, I can move it into moderation if you’d like…

    The original ‘THE TICK’, with Patrick Warburton, is a hoot - the DVD is well worth buying. I don’t know if the reboot ever happened or if it’s any good.

  23. Andréa May 8th 2017 at 08:19 am 23

    @20 - or you could, like me, be put into moderation for EVERYTHING . . . ‘-)

    @JP (18): SPOOOOOOON!

    Love the pocket watch photo on the wall.

  26. DPWally May 8th 2017 at 11:45 am 26

    Wait, Clark doesn’t have a second hand. How does he take tick pics without a second hand?
