March of Dimes

Cidu Bill on Apr 14th 2014

marchtohelp.pngAnd somehow, here we are at Year Nine of asking CIDU readers to help support the March For Babies (and Year Twenty Three of my son and I making the walk; can that possibly be right??)

Each year so far, in good times and bad, you guys have donated more than you had the year before. This year might be a challenge, though, since last year’s total jumped from $594 TO $677.

Of course, we must keep track of what’s really important here:

CIDU raising more money than my wife’s office does.

Update: The usual pattern: first couple of days, we shoot past the halfway mark. Next couple of weeks, I might as well not have the link taking up space at all. The last few days, everything picks up again and we pass the goal.

One and Two have gone like clockwork. Hopefully Three will as well…

Clearly this is a Passover reference (”Why is this night different from all other nights?”), but… huh??

Is this all some late, misguided April Fool’s gag?

And this is far from the first time I learned about an actual news story from a comic strip.

Okay, it’s clear what’s going on here (I think); but how does this relate in any way to reality and what’s the joke supposed to be?

A Shot of Geezerhood?

A week ago I wouldn’t have thought so; but then I spoke to somebody who insisted that “smarter than the average bear” came from the Chicago Bears.

The Arlo With Two Backs

Cidu Bill on Apr 5th 2014

Back-to-back Arlo Awards for Luann. Three in a row, and the strip is legally required to change its name to 9 Chickweed Lane.

The first one also earns the Ick tag, because he’s telling this to his future daughter-in-law.

How I Met The Woman In Whose Womb You Gestated And Who is Otherwise Unimportant To The Story

Cidu Bill on Mar 31st 2014

Perhaps not as badly written as the BSG and Lost finales, but in the end so unpleasant.

I was going to resurrect the earlier Worst Finale Ever thread, but this one requires its own discussion.

So using this awful episode as a baseline, can anybody name anything worse?

They were separated by a few years in the magazine; but you might remember seeing a suspiciously similar New Yorker panel here not so long ago.
