Then why are they walking around in their bare feet like idiots?

Okay, fair question…

Personally, I almost always say “And we’re off to see the Wizard” — though sometimes I break things up with “Allons-y!”

I can’t tell because I have to watch the mirror when I’m backing out of our driveway, but I’m sure my wife’s usually rolling her eyes.

Where do Arlo and Janis live, anyway? The Tower of London? Xanadu?

Honestly, I can’t think of any definition by which this discussion makes sense.

So why are they sitting outside, as if air conditioning hasn’t been invented yet?

You know, this would be a lot funnier if it didn’t happen to us at least once a month.

Okay, it’s 1am, the kids are asleep… what WAS Arlo’s Arlo word?

(But please use asterisks if and where necessary — not because it will make the responses any less offensive, because that might not be an option, but because I’ll hopefully be asleep when this goes live and I won’t be able to rescue any responses from Limbo)

What did everybody make of this?

Cidu Bill on Jul 1st 2017

If anything was going on here (is Janis flirting with him?), it was never followed up on…

…Or was it? This strip followed about three weeks later:

Are we looking at a slowly-simmering storyline here? It would be kind of cool if we were.

The Fusco Brothers Go Arlo (and other stories)

Cidu Bill on Jul 1st 2017

BVCC sent this Fusco Brothers comic for the Arlo file:

The 4th-wall-breaking reference to how cartoon characters are drawn reminded me of this recent Wizard of Id comic:

rodney.GIF

Which in turn had reminded me of this CIDU:

Is this a meta joke about how, since Arlo’s nose is so cartoonishly large, the mask won’t fit over his face properly?

Somebody sent this to me, and it came very close to being posted as a CIDU, but then it hit me: Arlo was trying to imitate Julia Child’s deep voice, and Janis is pointing out that he can only manage Mickey Mouse’s castrato.

Ouch.

So in the Arloverse, is “Ahem” the equivalent of “Well, hello, sailor…”?

Whistle an Arlo Tune

This is from 20 years ago, but I imagine the joke — which I don’t get — would be the same if the song were updated to “Belle” from “Beauty and the Beast.”

There are way fewer items that need manual changing now than there used to be.
