Arlo the Magnificent!

Cidu Bill on May 30th 2016

Since the first one I posted today wasn’t much fun…

Pirk: I guess the most obvious explanation is that they had sex . . . But an angry eyed Arlo griping “Are you about ready?” just doesn’t seem like the sort of thing that Janis would respond to with sex. And there’s no indication that sex happened. Really, what’s going on here?

Sane

Because reconnecting with her college friends on Facebook reminds her of things she did in college?

(and if so, is this the first we’ve been told that she went to art school?)

Tinker to Evers to Chance to Arlo to Janis

A hundred years ago, they were a famous Chicago Cubs double-play combination. It’s possible that in the off-season, since ballplayers were all that well paid, they took jobs at the Chicago Diner serving coffee — but probably not.

So apparently Gene and Mary Lou are looking for a name for their produce stand

I’m certain Jimmy really wants us to suggest something, but he’s just too shy to ask.

Any thoughts?

CATV

Okay, since the Arlo and Janis strip I’d chosen for today’s CIDU turned out to have been too easy, let’s go back to the Days with another one.

What I’m seeing here is Arlo laughing at what’s probably a YouTube cat video and then Luddie, seeing this, (somehow) destroys the television.

Oh good, now WordPress wants to publish everything an hour late. Which would be understandable if they hadn’t been trying to publish everything an hour early for the past few months.

And then sometimes Jimmy doesn’t even PRETEND it’s not about sex.

Post-Arlo Arlo

First of all, Jimmy didn’t even leave open the slightest possibility that Arlo means anything other than what we think he means. That’s why the award is named after… um, Arlo Guthrie.

But they’ve been married for thirty years or so (in the context of the comic strip), and she’s fine with him walking in on her bathing, so I’m having some trouble with the basic premise of her being so shy about her body.

Your Cheatin’ Heart

Cidu Bill on Feb 11th 2016

Statistically, Valentine’s Day is the busiest day for private detectives following cheating spouses, and the weeks following are great for marriage counselors and divorce attorneys.

Or so newspaper and magazine articles inform us every year.

We already know that Arlo has the hots for Lois Flagston. What other comic strip affairs can you envision?

When’s the beef?

Cidu Bill on Feb 7th 2016

This ran today.

Are we supposed to understand that this has been sitting in the fridge for a month and a half? In which case Jimmy’s obviously ending the strip because Arlo and Janis will probably be dead by tomorrow morning?

If it had been in the freezer, where’s the joke?

Shirt

A bit awkwardly phrased, I thought (sorry, Jimmy), but not a CIDU. I post it because it reminded me that when I met David Willis, the first thing I said to him was “I have shirts older than you are.”

Okay, who do they think she killed? My vote’s on Lyman.

(This question will probably expire as soon as Tuesday’s strip appears — unless Jimmy’s making a Frazz Halloween out of this)

(by the way, when was the last time we saw non-Day children in this strip other than Shrimp’s buddies?)

You guessed it… more comics that I’m not sure whether they made any of us laugh out loud in 2015 yet. Hey, at least I haven’t been accidentally running repeats on Sundays. That should count for something.
