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:

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?

Saturday Morning Arlo/LOL/CIDU

Cidu Bill on Jan 7th 2017

Andréa sent me this as an LOL and an Arlo candidate, but I’d already saved it as a CIDU: yes, I understand that “public” and “pubic” look a lot alike, but what’s the actual joke here? That a room that says “Pubic Affairs” means a room where people have sex??

A Nippy Morning (Arlo Award)

Cidu Bill on Dec 2nd 2016

It always seems so appropriate when we can give Jimmy Johnson the Arlo Award (even though, of course, it was named after Mr. Guthrie)

Actually, I’m not sure about the “I am,” comment, so I’m adding a CIDU tag.

Kevin and Kell and Arlo?

Several people asked me whether this strip can have an reasonable non-Arlo meaning.

(Anybody who doesn’t follow this strip, just move along)

Arlo Candles

On one hand, I don’t think this quite rises to Arlo Award level. On the other hand, I can’t think of a single humorous explanation that doesn’t involve naughty behavior.

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.

Okay, I get that those aren’t eye holes (hence the Arlo tag); beyond that, I don’t have a ghost of a clue.
