Regarding the Frazz strip, Miss P. hasn’t even scratched the surface on how many things are wrong here.

Organ

Dare I ask which organ?

I’ve decided the best way to handle Caulfield is to subject him to Clockwork Orange-style aversion therapy: lock him in a room like Alex was, prop open his eyes, and make him watch Steven Wright until he cracks.

In keeping with comic strip tradition…

… since I’m going to be away for a week, today’s post is being replaced by  an almost ten-year-old repeat.

New responses can still be added, though please note that some of the external links might not work.

Normal posts will resume tomorrow.

Commando

Cidu Bill on Nov 15th 2017

Why would Connie possibly think that’s what the word means? And why would she think anybody could tell by looking at her that she wasn’t carrying a cell phone? And wouldn’t Jeremy be even more mortified than Walt by the thought?

I’m probably missing a few questions, but these will do for a start.

And this is one day removed from synchronicity with Luann’s Commando Tara story line (still ongoing, and possibly headed into uncomfortable territory if it means a return to Creepy Leslie and his mother issues).

Otherwise, if this strip is even remotely centered in reality, Marla’s a cashier at A&P by next week.

The Tom Lehrer tag

Cidu Bill on Nov 13th 2017

Mark M. sent me this with the comment “Sometimes I think I read too much into Beetle Bailey, but other times I say Nah!

Well, I think “Nah” is correct, but it made me think maybe we should have a category for comics that really don’t deserve the Arlo Award, but could be seen as improper if we really work at it.

Okay actually, Frazz…

You can stop encouraging his pain-in-the-ass disruptions of Mrs. Olsen’s class. Yes, we get that you and Caulfield both thinl you’re smarter than Mrs. Olsen.

(And it’s unfortunate that Mrs. Olsen doesn’t seem to be able to control her classroom)

I was Caulfield when I was that age — and if I had one of the school’s adult authority figures goading me on, I’m pretty certain Mrs. DeBeech would have had no choice but to have me killed.

Even by comic strip standards, this reaction seems to be less a punchline than a sign of mental illness.

Veteran’s Day

Cidu Bill on Nov 11th 2017

The first time I posted the link to this Arlo and Janis story (runs for six days), somebody told me they should run it in the newspapers every year. Since that’s not likely to happen, I’ll do the next best thing by posting the link each year.

And on the same basic subject, it’s probably hard to really appreciate this one unless you were 18 years old during a very specific time:

Kryptonite

The caption is “They now think that kryptonite is actually good for you, in small doses.”

Is this some sort of homeopathy reference?

And while we’re all here, I don’t get the joke.

is that it took him 46 years to realize he doesn’t like the song.

Oh, and just for the heck of it…
