    “Neither of us IS . . . “

    The “cave reaper” is a repeat from three weeks ago, but it’s still funny.

    I really liked the Bizarro - it actually got a LOL out of me - just the level of subtlety that appeals. However, it seems like July was an odd time for it to come out. The second one doesn’t do too much for me (and didn’t when it was here 3 weeks ago, but I’m guessing repeats don’t matter in this case…). Neither does the Benton (which ran on GoComics in September last year - no idea why all the out of season Halloween comics). The basic gag in the Parisi has been done to death, and I don’t think he really brought anything new to it. I did like the Deering, but I’m not quite sure why it worked for me…

    Yes, it took me a minute to accept that “on the way to” is considered false if “you will get there” is discovered (revealed) to be false.

    Tsk. That’s “Neither of us *IS*.” Because English.

    I don’t think I understand the cul-de-sac one. Do zombies always follow roadways or something?

    Okay, let’s dwell on the fact that I’m doing a lot better about repeats than I used to.

    Actually, I thought the Bob Marley might have been a rerun.

    They’re stuck in the cul-de-sac and can’t get out, or they’re looking for the person who inserted that unnecessary comma. (Today is Proofreading Day at CIDU?)

    They’re very polite zombies and won’t walk on the grass.
    They’re wearing roller skate shoes and would bog down off the roadway.
    on the gripping hand:
    Once you think about this one, there’s no possible win.

    I think the Grim Reaper repeat was worthwhile. Compare and contrast….

    Actual phone message taken by my mom: “A man called about the sports car you wanted to buy. He said his name was Alfred Romero or Alfie Romano or something.”

    The Grim Reaper one was good, but the Bob Marley one made me laugh so loud I woke my cats.

    Or they’re like robot vacuum cleaners and just turn aside when running up against a curb.

    If they’re like robot vacuum cleaners, it becomes amazingly easy
    to protect against an attacking zombie horde.

    The undead are stuck in a dead end, ha, ha.
