Seriously, isn’t this guy old enough to know not to needlessly piss off the guy who’s preparing his food?

It’s true, you know: they say that because they don’t want you to click the option number you remember as correct and end up in the wrong place — also, the longer it takes you to click the option number, the less time you’ll think you’ve been waiting to be connected.
When I worked with CJA, the automated phone system announced “the options have changed” the moment it went live.

Do people still use white-out? How would that even work when you’re using a printer? It’s not as if you can type in the correction. And having the printer run off another copy would take less time than it took you to read the comic.

Three people sent me this one which I’m pretty certain is a record for a Barney & Clyde. Kilby wrote: The name “Nelson Algren” in the forth panel leads quickly to the relevant quote: “Never play cards with a guy named Doc. Never eat at a place called Mom’s. Never sleep with a woman whose troubles are worse than your own.” But this does not explain why the mattress factory would be trouble, or why it would be difficult to replace it with a warehouse.

So… Mom gives them the nicknames of a pair of sociopathic murderers, so they affectionately refer to her as an alleged Renaissance serial killer??
And what exactly does Loeb mean by “Credit to…”? Her cleverness in coming up with the Leopold and Loeb names? Because that would make more sense if Loeb hadn’t so quickly come up with Lucrezia Borgia.
(Of course there’s the unintended irony that the strip is sort of named after two people who, a few years after Leopold and Loeb’s crime, might have killed more people than Leopold, Loeb and Borgia combined)

Kilby: My question is, how many “normal” readers actually know that word
without looking it up?
P.S. Then again, that leads to the question of how many “normal”
readers follow CIDU.
Bill: So now the question is, how many of you did know what the word means?

Andréa sent me this as an Arlo Award nominee. I agree, but I have no idea what he actually meant or why he said it.
