Post-Arlo Arlo

Cidu Bill on Mar 6th 2016

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

Cidu Bill on Jan 25th 2016

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.

Cidu Bill on Jan 4th 2016

(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.

Spontaneous

Cidu Bill on Dec 16th 2015

arlo-spontaneous1.gif

Several people sent me this one, and in fact I had it queued up as tomorrow’s CIDU, but then I realized that they made the spontaneous decision to do some Arlo-ing in front of the fire, but then Janis wanted to set out pillows and sheets so they wouldn’t be uncomfortable.

Opposing viewpoints will, however, be entertained

Keeping it under your hat…

No CIDU or anything. This just reminded me of something I’ve always wondered about: in Westerns, how come you never see cowboys with hat hair?

“Comments” seems to work now

As always, I went with the low-tech fix: I edited the date/time field. I suppose we’ll never know what the problem was, but it seems as if WordPress decided that November has only 29 days.

She means the neighbor’s leaf blower started up?

I never heard that word used with that meaning.

And is that a leaf blower thing? I thought it was just a lawn mower issue.

Part Two of Tonight’s Arlo Double Feature

First of all, Jimmy’s out-Arloed himself with this one (unless it’s perfectly innocent and I just have a really dirty mind)

Second, what exactly is the joke here?
