So how exactly would be the kids being offline for a day constitute a Mother’s Day present?

CIDEwww

Cidu Bill on May 7th 2011

Yannick Roy sent this one for the Ewww Files, but both the comic itself and his reaction to it are mysteries to me.

BOGO

Um… Actually, these are two different sales, not two ways of phrasing the same thing.

I have had it with these !@#$ cats in this !@#$ strip!

(no offense intended, Jimmy; I just couldn’t come up with any other tagline that amused me)
Okay, so 1) what’s Luddie doing in the first two panels, 2) why’s Janis freaking out, and 3) what’s Arlo talking about?

(note: a couple of people sent this to me as a CIDU, but Laurie Wylie sent it as a LOL)

I think it’s obvious what he’s thinking, but what does he think she thinks he’s thinking?

Boy, did THIS one age badly!

I don’t think we’re quite at the point where you have to be a geezer to know what a roll of film is, but people under a certain age aren’t really going to “get” the whole “photos are expensive” concept.

In 1999, I took my son to the New York International Auto Show for the first time (though he’d been going to smaller shows since he was 3 years old). He went through 19 rolls of film. That’s film plus developing.

I bought my first digital camera just before the 2000 show, realizing I’d pretty much save the price of the camera after only two shows.

Actually, back in the day, it was common practice to tip your executioner — to guarantee a clean, relatively-painless cut.

Carrillo’s going to have to try harder if he wants to out-do reality

Also, there’s another bookstore that sells only a single title at a time — I think they change the title each month — but I only heard bits and pieces of the story on NPR the other day, so I can’t offer any further details.

Because if so, wouldn’t it have made more sense just to offer her a free cookie?
