Saturday Morning Synchronicity, Even Though the Comics Both Appeared on Wednesday

Cidu Bill on Dec 10th 2016

Spotted and submitted by Mike Kruger:

If course, for me either of these comics would be a personal synchronicity on its own: nobody is better at losing cars in parking lots than I am.

A few years ago, when I had to buy a new car, my wife ordered the salesman not to let me have a grey one, because I’d never find it. And every time I find my bright blue car in the parking lot — generally after walking up and down the aisles for a while — I thank her.

I kind of sort of see what he’s getting at, but I just can’t put a ribbon around it, as it were.

A Nippy Morning (Arlo Award)

Cidu Bill on Dec 2nd 2016

It always seems so appropriate when we can give Jimmy Johnson the Arlo Award (even though, of course, it was named after Mr. Guthrie)

Actually, I’m not sure about the “I am,” comment, so I’m adding a CIDU tag.

This strip has become quite chatty lately, hasn’t it? Oh, and… Huh??

Tough Sledding

Cidu Bill on Dec 1st 2016

This is a reprint from 2003, but that hardly affects the joke: just add 13 to each of the years.

Not only don’t I understand it, but that’s one hell of a speech bubble for a Lio strip
