I know the cow jumped over the moon and the dish ran away with the spoon, but other than that I don’t see any connection.

Okay, actually…

This isn’t past tense. It’s conditional, so “I’d hanged” would be correct.

Of course this all would have been less awkward if he’d said “I feel insignificant” in which case “I hanged” would indeed have been correct.

Just saying… if you’re going to do a strip based on grammar, you might want to have somebody proofread it.

Broncosaurus

Morris Keesan informs me that the hovertext was “broncosaurus.”

Which is troubling, because it means the hovertext disease has spread to another comic, and now I won’t b able to use Buni strips as CIDUs anymore: because I have no good way to store hovertexts along with comics and if I don’t include the hovertext for a comic that uses them, people will go hunting down said hovertext, whether or not it does anything to explain the comic.

Have I mentioned how much I hate hovertexts (and !@#$ squirrels)?

A Tale of Two Scooters [OT]

Cidu Bill on Mar 22nd 2015

Little Tikes makes a preschool scooter, with a little compartment in the back to hold a stuffed animal. Back in the day, my older son virtually lived on his.

Now that I have a year-old niece of course I want to get her one, but I see they make two models now, absolutely identical except for the colors: one in bold primary colors, and one in light blue and lavender.

The former is sold as a Boy’s Push and Ride Racer, the later as a Girl’s Push and Ride Doll Walker. President Eisenhower personally approved.

Now obviously, not my kid and not my call. And I recognize I may lack perspective since I have only sons and grew up with only brothers: but my first thought was “is this 2015?” and my second was “it’s disheartening that this is being done by a company that presumably knows it’s what the market wants.”

Your thoughts?

Meanwhile, in an alternate universe in which teenagers phone one another instead of text AND cell phones are loud enough that other people can hear what’s being said from across the room AND volume can’t be turned down AND people are incapable of holding a cell phone and walking out of a room at the same time…
