Pencils

Is “four pencils and an eraser” another well-known phrase that Tom Batiuk made up? And is that actually a punchline?

I’d actually have described four regular basketball players and a much taller center as a message from Batiuk to his readers.

Lightbulb Question

Cidu Bill on Dec 22nd 2010

In ten years time, when incandescent lightbulbs no longer exist (by next year they’ll be banned in Great Britain and no longer manufactured in Japan, and the rest of the world will likely soon follow), will they still be used by comic strip artists as shorthand for “an idea!”, even if increasingly only geezers will remember having used them for illumination?

First I thought she’s just messing with Brad’s head. Then I thought she’d bought a bra and thong underwear (covering, therefore, three body parts that need to be covered but leaving her butt exposed). Then I thought I should ask somebody else to explain it to me.

Submitted by Timothy Carignan, who also supplied the tag line and added, “I think ink the real kicker is that these two are so close alphabetically that they come next to each other on my news feed.”

Something I’ve Been Wondering About

Cidu Bill on Dec 16th 2010

Don’t Arlo and Janis live in Mississippi near the Gulf? Do they ever really get enough snow down there to build a snowman?

And do Arlo and Janis speak with Mississippi accents? I guess they would have to, which kind of conflicts with the way I’ve always heard them in my head.
