Way to go, Idaho!

Cidu Bill on Sep 10th 2014

Even ignoring that phone call from 1991, and the fact that she probably wouldn’t have heard of the movie even if it were new… huh???

A Shot of Geezerhood?

A week ago I wouldn’t have thought so; but then I spoke to somebody who insisted that “smarter than the average bear” came from the Chicago Bears.

The Little Geezer

Cidu Bill on Jan 31st 2014

Andréa sent this for the Geezer files. Was this strip well-known enough to justify this was a homage?

Cidu Bill on Dec 20th 2013

In other words, should this get the Geezer tag?

No Geezer Tag For You!

Cidu Bill on Dec 13th 2013

I’m thinking no on Andréa’s submission, since the show’s in constant syndication. YMMV.

Bird

Cidu Bill on Dec 13th 2013

Mark Jackson asked whether this should get the geezer tag, since the movie came out half a century ago. My own thought is that the movie is a classic so people should continue to understand it, but I don’t think it even remotely works as a joke all these years later.

Thoughts?

Eight Million People Submitted This One

Cidu Bill on Nov 9th 2013

Okay, only three. But three people recognizing a reference to a show that went off the air 50 years ago isn’t half bad.

I’m giving this the geezer tag, of course, but not the CIDU — because I sort of see what he’s getting at, even if the gag is a bit too muddled to really work.

Geezer Week

Cidu Bill on Jul 4th 2013

As if to remind me of my upcoming birthday, multiple people each sent me one of these “Geezer Alert” strips, none of which gave me a moment’s hesitation. To be fair, two of the three contained references from well before I was born.

So the question is, are all of these references well-known enough to take them out of geezer territory?

A Day Without a Punchline?

David Montgomery wonders whether this comic would make any sense to somebody not of this right age to get the circa 1970 reference:

Awkward

Speaking of awkward, that dialog

And is there any real joke here, or is this similar to Jeremy’s comment going over Connie’s head, indicated by his comment literally going over her head (I still think the hashtag thing should have had something to do with something there)?

And, y’know, 1987 called…

Geezer Alert or Not?

Is this geezer material, as Andréa suggests,or will “like a broken record” endure past the point where most people are familiar with its genesis?

I couldn’t figure out why, when I booted up my computer this morning, it kept shouting “1968’s Calling! 1968’s Calling!”

And I don’t really get the joke either, unless it’s “if you understand this as all you’re old, ha ha!”

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?

Do we have to file a Geezer Alert on this one as well, or will most of the non-AARP readership get it?
