Saturday Morning Ewww - August 26, 2017

Cidu Bill on Aug 26th 2017




ImPortant Notice: It has been pointed out to me that cartoonists have been severely over-using urine in their comic strips, to the point that it’s lost most of its Ewww value. Or “Valewww” if you will. But you probably won’t.

So we’re putting in effect a moratorium on… “Ewww-rine” comics?


Anyway, from now on, unless the comic really goes above and beyond,

    Aside to Bill: The “ImPortant Notice” label mostly disappears as yellow on white background. (Despite the possible thematic value of the color scheme.) I actually couldn’t read it until trying the “select to highlight” trick.

    Comment-question on the Crankshaft: Would human or coyote origin be worse? You would think coyote, but this is rare among the lemonade/urine mixup genre in actually showing it being consumed.

    Your PCommentary is funnier than all the PComics are . . .

    . . . or should that be, Anti-P commentary . . .

    And we must avoid ‘Marvin’ ’cause it’s nothing but P ‘jokes’ . . .

    I wonder if it has anything to do with the (alleged) pee tape from the most recent presidential campaign.

    Bill, on a scale of 1 to 10, you’re an 8.

    Sorry; Bill, on a scale of 1 to 8, you’re an 8!

    With Number 2 still qualifying for Ewww, you’re saying we should hold off on Number 1 unless it goes…beyond the call of doody? (sunglasses)

    So, you’ve been getting pissed off?

    … was… was that a Crankshaft that was actually amusing?

    For what it’s worth, bottles of coyote urine don’t look like lemonade — they are much browner. More like apple juice.

    Why do I know this? A few drops of coyote urine put on cotton swabs which you then place in strategic places around your property is a REALLY effective way of keeping raccoons away. is where I get mine.

    But you can’t have poopee without both poo and pee.

    The “mistaking urine for other drink” gag was old hat when I was a kid, and I’ll bet it was old hat when my grandfather was a kid too. I can’t really imagine why a cartoonist (even Batiuk) thinks he deserves to get paid for making yet another instance of it.

    According to, which sells (used to sell?) predator pee to get rid of squirrels and other pests, it is not recommended to be used indoors, as the odor is remarkably strong.

    Which leads one to wonder how he managed to taste it.

    “Which leads one to wonder how he managed to taste it.”

    Lemonade is to lemon juice as (blank) is to coyote urine.

    The first comic seems to be an excellent argument for extending the general pee joke ban to poop jokes as well, but as the second comic admirably demonstrates, not all #2 jokes are equal (or rather, some are less #2 than others).

    P.S. The third comic seems to be missing a “here” between “this” and “sand”.

    Good call, Kilby.

    As someone who cleans up after six dogs, and sometimes more, I don’t find comic #1 funny . . . I would NEVER leave any dog waste out for longer than it takes me to get to it, in their own bathroom pen.

    I would consider that comic a YUCK, rather than just an EWWWW.

    Is there a moratorium on bird p**p jokes, too? If not, go here -

    If so, please disregard the previous.

    Back on the old Letterman show, comedian Chris Elliot would come on as Marlon Brando, in for a visit from his remote island hideaway. Once he had a jar of apple juice his manservant back on the island had packed for him. After a swig, he says, “That’s not apple juice”.
