A mendiant is a sort of chocolate candy, which doesn’t help at all.

Are these ghosts of particular people we’re supposed to recognize?

A Fishy Deal

Cidu Bill on Jul 17th 2017

Mitch4: A CIDU inasmuch as I don’t entirely get the joke. But sent in as a matter of interest for a secondary puzzle — is that caption dealing in a cartooning in-joke, using the names of Guy and Rodd?

Strange Apes

Cidu Bill on Jul 14th 2017

Andréa sent this comic

for the Geezer files — quite appropriately, since it references this:

And I’m adding a CIDU tag, because… yes, it references a 60-year-old Ernie Kovaks bit, but what’s the joke?

Edited to add: Arthur also subsequently submitted this with both the CIDU and Geezer tags.

I can think of several different possible explanations, none of which quite makes sense.

I’m old enough that this hardly seems like a geezer reference.

What the actual joke is, on the other hand, stumps me.

Boise Ed: $240 for a few hours’ non-work? Wow! Assuming it’s just dinner, and say, three hours out, that’s $80 an hour for babysitting. I would expect something in the cartoon to indicate WHY they are spending $240, but nothing does that for me.

On one hand, I’m not following what he’s getting at. On the other hand, bonus points for spelling “lede” correctly.

A few weeks ago, I was following some online discussion — I don’t recollect what it was about — and somebody claimed he knew what he was talking about because he’d been a reporter for over 30 years. Then he used the expression “burying the lead.”

Busted, dude.

I understand what she’s actually saying, but not what she means. Or why it’s funny.
