Sikhs and Daggers and Schools[CJA]

Cidu Bill on Oct 30th 2014

If Sikh children are allowed to carry ceremonial daggers in school, should your kid be allowed to carry his Swiss Army knife?

This was nice, if about a month late — though the “football” comment was pointless and distracting.

So… Facebook, which Janis uses and Gene doesn’t, is the only way Gene can think of to send Janis photos? Am I missing something here?

(disclaimer: I just e-mailed my mother a batch of photos from my brother’s birthday party)

What scared the !@#$ out of you?

Cidu Bill on Oct 27th 2014

Just in time for Halloween…

But I’m not asking for traditionally scary movies and such (when I was a kid, the same episode of The Outer Limits gave me nightmares twice; yes, I probably shouldn’t have watched the rerun) — I’m talking about things that frightened you on a different level:

When I was 12 I read Ibsen’s Enemy of the People, and was fairly traumatized when the townspeople suddenly turned on Doctor Stockmann. And that set me up for the film version of Cabaret a few years later which, while not a very good movie in my opinion (Liza Minnelli being frightening in an entirely different way), contained what to me was the scariest movie scene ever:

Update: Beheadings, Bare Breasts, Facebook and Me [CJA/NSFW]

Cidu Bill on Oct 24th 2014

It took Facebook just over an hour to censor my comment about their censorship. The post, and hopefully your comments, are now here.

Beheadings and Bare Breasts [CJA] CORRECTED LINK!

Cidu Bill on Oct 24th 2014

A few choice words (with an illustration that pretty much guarantees that the post will be quickly censored) about Facebook’s policies on these matters. Please check it out while you can.

Not Safe For Work, at least as of right now.

Flat

Are professional cheerleaders generally flat? I suppose there would be logic to this. But isn’t this an odd question for Janis to ask in response to Arlo’s clearly rhetorical question? Or is hers equally rhetorical?

I don’t mean to be picky here, but I’m pretty sure humor requires some anchor to reality, even in a strip about post-apocalyptic fundamentalist Christian cavemen.

Yes, I know, James and the Giant Peach: one of the Roald Dahl novels that hasn’t been re-released with a pornographic cover. But what’s the joke here?
