Here’s a little-known fact about today’s Brevity strip…

One person sent it to me with the Geezer tag, one sent it to me as a LOL, and one sent it to me just because. Forgive my ignorance (well, you’ve been doing that for more than 16 years now), but what’s the joke here? I mean yeah, Cliff Clavin from Cheers, and “Clavin” is Calvin is you’re mildly dyslexic, but… so?

I suspect more people know “kvetch, kvetch, kvetch” from Norma Rae than from any other single source.

I wonder whether Blazek uses Velcro to keep his parts from coming loose

Cidu Bill on Jan 10th 2013

Well first of all I don’t quite get it. That’s probably evident by the CIDU tag and the fact that it’s appearing at 12:02am EST. But in addition, Tom Drane points out that Velcro is a company name.

I’m guessing here that Arlo doesn’t want Luddie to see the dog turning the Snow Cat yellow?

Okay, I know (for some reason) that Fergie sang with the Black Eyed Peas (though when she first came on the scene, I confess I thought the Duchess of York had started a singing career; hey, it’s no more unreasonable than a Duchess of York becoming spokesperson for Weight Watchers); but beyond that, there’s so much going on in this strip that’s whizzing over my head…

A belated Arlo Award goes to Mark Parisi, and a belated apology goes to everybody who sent me this. A while ago.

Hard-drive clean-up: it’s a process.

An LOL and a Question

Cidu Bill on Jan 6th 2013

Submitted by both Chak Olate and Morris Keesan:

pooh.gif

Okay, here’s what I’ve always wondered: how did it get so firmly standardized that monkeys throw “poo,” rather than any other euphemism? Now granted there aren’t that many socially-acceptable euphemisms, but still… it’s always “monkeys” and “poo.” Nobody ever talks about “elephant poo,” after all, at least not as uniformly. Is it that simian excrement is somehow inherently cuter?

Chak sent me this back in October, and I’m going to add an Arlo Page tag as well.

And yeah, I’m still finding comics scattered all over my hard drive: 2012 was not a year in which I would have impressed anybody with my organizational skills.
