    I’m not sure what to say about these, except I guess wordpress is acting up again, since it is Friday night at 10:30 (Central time), not Saturday evening. And the post is dated tomorrow (12/9). I’m pretty sure Bill is in Eastern time, so it’s still Friday for him too.

    No idea why I typed “evening.”

    Well, I do know why: I seriously over-estimate my ability to multi-task.

    Bill, I hadn’t noticed the Australian headline before. I have an Australian friend on Facebook and I know he is 19 hours ahead of me. And also a FB friend in Denmark, 9 hours ahead. But his sleep habits are sometimes like ours, which means sometimes he might be online just about any time.

    “Best Dilbert strip ever.”

    That would be the one where the company is looking for Unix programmers.

    The punchline is “If the company nurse stops by, tell her I said never mind.”

    On the current television show “The Good Place”, in an artificial post-life environment, when the inhabitants curse it comes out — for them as well as us — with substitutions. The most common is indeed “fork” (not “folk”). There are others, and sometimes becomes non-obvious enough for the figuring-out to be amusing in itself.

    Some signs how old the Dilbert strip is:
    * The artwork is crude because Scott was still actually drawing it all by himself
    * Use of the term “hi-tech”
    * The e-mail address in the margin goes to @aol.com

    Hey, Mona! Nice to hear from you. How are the holidays working for you? For me, so far, fairly easy-peasy. I’m keeping a low profile and doing whatever I’m told - without grumbling or argument.

    Close. The best Dilbert strip is the one _after_ they hire the Unix guys, and Wally encounters a bald, fat, bearded guy with long hair and suspenders.
    W: “Hey, you’re one of those arrogant Unix guys, aren’t you?”
    UG: “Here’s a nickel, kid. Buy yourself a better computer”

    The descendants of Unix are still in nearly-universal use by chip engineers and the developers of serious software, and for good reason. Of all the software designed in the early seventies, this particular brilliant, clean design has held up the best.

    Hi Terry! We had small Thanksgiving at our house, only eighteen, all adults. Well, some of them are niece’s and nephew’s kids, but they are all adults now. Glad you’re having good holidays and behaving yourself.
    On topic….Many years ago Scarface was on “regular” TV, meaning it had to be censored. A lot of “monkey-fooler”s and “fool you!”s to the point of hilarity. Nothing like really angry people yelling “fool you!” “no, fool you!” at each other. And Gina asking Tony if he wants to fool her.

    Saw a movie on tv once in which somebody called somebody an a******, which the network changed to “idiot,” but he was illustrating the insult by dropping his pants and showing the guy his… idiot.

    I’m not sure what’s with this Foxtrot strip. It strains my credulity that Jason has never heard the F word before. He’s also way too smart to think that folk music consists of saying the word “folk” a lot.

    Of all the software designed in the early seventies, this particular brilliant, clean design has held up the best.

    It amuses me how some people describe the system that gave rise to the phrase “worse is better” as “clean”.

    Furrykef, even the most precociously brilliant comic strip children can be dumber than a rock when it suits the particular day’s gag.

    I’m not sure I’ve seen this in Barney & Clyde’s Cynthia yet, but I think she’d be the only exception.

    CiduBill, I agree about comic strip kids. I really don’t get why, when there are so many kids in the strip, Mallett sometimes portrays Caulfield as too stupid to breathe.

    Well, even the most brilliant real-life adult is capable of amazingly stupid behavior from time to time.

    The Dilbert reminds me of a question I’ve been thinking of as a legitimate astronomy question with which a high school student could annoy their science teacher: Is Uranus a gas giant?

    “there’s a difference between stupid behavior and being stupid.”

    Yes, that was my point. Acting in a stupid manner can be a temporary phenomenon, affecting even the smartest of people. Or it can be a baseline which is rarely, if ever, departed from.

    Yes, like Mona/19 said, Jason is play-acting naivete - the last panel make is very clear that he’s pretending - “… he told me not to tell you”.

    That Jason could be pretending did cross my mind, but it still didn’t make sense to me because he didn’t really seem to have much of a motive for it.

    I don’t follow the strip, but Peter is Jason’s big brother. Seems like motive to me.

    Motive for pretending, or motive for getting his brother in trouble? One of the running jokes of the strip is the latter, tattling on his brother. The former, pretending to faux-naivete, is Jason’s idea of being funny (part of his character).

    mitch4@10, when I think of swear filters I immediately think of theSkin Horse webcomic, in which a nerd’s brain was schlorped out and installed in a cyborg helicopter, with a swear filter added. In yesterday’s strip (http://skin-horse.com/comic/windings-for/), he called his boss, an uplifted husky, a…well, I don’t know quite what he meant to call her, but it came out ‘barking cupcake’.

    padraig - it amazes me how many people still have aol email addresses. Last month I had email bouncing back from a member of my embroidery chapter who has an aol address and went to make sure - as I had a thought in the back of my head that something just happened with aol - that the email still existed. I guess she got whatever fixed, as her newsletter went through this month.
