It’s just his neurosis that oughta be curbed

Cidu Bill on Apr 27th 2013

Those who hate-read Funky Winkerbean over at Son of Stuck Funky are of the general consensus that Tom Batiuk meant “neurotic,” not Nordic:

And today’s “probable misuse of neurotic” synchronicity is completed over at Tina’s Groove, and I have to tag this “CIDU” as well:

Funky Tea

Cidu Bill on Dec 8th 2012

Mike: We beat up on Batiuk a lot, so maybe he should be thrown a rose when he gets a decent laugh. (and this also echoes the strips transformation over time)

Restricted Text Messages

Cidu Bill on Apr 16th 2012

funky_winkerbean20120416.gif

A couple of people asked me about this, and my first instinct was that “restricted text message” is something that exists only in Tom Batiuk’s reality. A quick peek at the rest of the week’s strips confirms this.

The Son of Stuck Funky site has an entire glossary of expressions and concepts unique to Funkytown.

Moon

Cidu Bill on Jul 20th 2011

And we’re back live.

Of course by “live” I mean I put this comic in the queue back in June and it would have gone live this morning whether I’d come home from Boston or not.

And it happens to be several years old.

But still.

So what answer was he looking for?

What sort of horse’s ass of a teacher cuts into a lunch line?

(And in case anybody’s wondering, yes, there are schools in which teachers and students eat together and stand in line together)

”Bad Timing of the Year” Award

Cidu Bill on Mar 13th 2011

funky_winkerbean20110312.gif

Can’t really blame Batiuk for this one, of course, since he works with a long lead time. There was far less excuse for the comic (I can’t remember which strip) poking fun at the Queen Mum, which happened to have been published the day she died. I mean yeah, strips are generally written and submitted three weeks ahead, but… she was what, a hundred and three years old? You really have to know you’re pushing your luck there.

Pencils

Cidu Bill on Dec 27th 2010

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.

They tried to tell us we’re too young…

Cidu Bill on Oct 21st 2010

The reporter is too young to know what “nonfiction memoir” means? She’s too young to have been following the Funky Winkerbean strip and therefore doesn’t know who Lisa is? I’m stumped.

Senior

He should really take it up with Batiuk, who draws him to look like he’s at least 70 years old. And not a spry 70-year-old either.
Anyway, a discount’s a discount, isn’t it? And we’ve seen how tight Funky is with a buck (also see here).

Why New York is Different From the Rest of the World

Cidu Bill on Aug 9th 2010

piece.gif

In Ohio this t-shirt would imply “anger management issues”?? In New York, assuming the pizza place was reasonably popular, a t-shirt with this sort of attitude would sell like, well, New York pizza.

That being said, of course… a piece of pizza? I’ve never heard that before in my life. Once again, Batiuk is apparently making up a phrase for the sake of basing a gag around it. Dude, that’s not how puns work.
