Fun Fact (which you probably never thought about before but becomes blindingly obvious in hindsight once somebody mentions it to you)

Cidu Bill on May 14th 2011

cowboys.gif
“Cowboys and Indians” was never a “thing” in the old west — and when you think about it, why would it have been? Cowboys and farmers were natural rivals. Indians had their issues with the army and with settlers.
The “cowboys and Indians” dichotomy was actually an invention of “Buffalo Bill” Cody.

Judge Mental: ”Here Comes the Snowball (and I say it’s alright)”

Cidu Bill on Mar 29th 2011

snowball.gif

Judge Mental: “I think I get the gist of what is going on here, but I think the colorist confused matters by not coloring the sun. The sun (background) comes off looking like a giant snowball in the foreground, particular in the 3rd panel where Caulfield appears to be staring at said snowball. In cases like this, you wonder if he (the colorist) thought it was a snowball and left it white on purpose.”

Is the joke here that Popeye could have been used to sell spinach? Because, you know…

spinach.jpgI can, by the way, accept the fact that the girl has no idea about the Popeye/spinach connection because according to a scientific survey I conducted a few months ago, neither of my kids had even heard of Popeye.

Farmville

Several people sent me today’s Frazz strip, because it relates to a topic we’ve discussed so often here. Since we seem to be discussing it again because of this F-Minus strip, I figured I’d simplify things by just adding the Frazz to this post.

Outrage

Are one third of all Sports Illustrated readers outraged each year by the Swimsuit Issue? If not, I don’t get this.
Of course, if one third of all Sports Illustrated readers are outraged each year by the Swimsuit Issue, well… they’ve been doing this for a while. Shouldn’t these people either accept it at this point or simply not subscribe?

Rudy

rudy.jpg

Morris Keesan: Should I have understood this without Google? I understood the comic, but I had to use Google to find out what “red rudy projects” are. Rudy Project is a company which makes sunglasses; does not knowing that make me really out of touch, or is Mallett really off base with his assumption that this is common knowledge (or even as common as his occasional literary allusions)?

Up On The Roof

Timothy Carignan wrote, “Either that’s supposed to be ‘I’ve been an adult longer than you’ve been a kid’ or it’s supposed to be the kid’s voice bubble. Either way, something’s wrong here.” I was thinking more along the lines of “I was a kid for a lot longer than you’ve been a kid,” but that doesn’t entirely work either.

The following day, Caufield confessed to Fraz that he has a crush on Miss Plainwell. This doesn’t explain what’s going here on in the second panel, though.
