TMI

Cidu Bill on Aug 15th 2016

Mona: I would label it TMIDU Ewww?

Although, it is probably not worth the space it would take up on CIDU.

It appears to me that there is something, perhaps dogstuff or??? on the ground that, for some reason, is identified as stars - the Southern Cross - on Janis’s star-gazer app. Arlo looks disgusted and claims TMI (too much information).

Would an app confuse something on the ground with a constellation?

BTW, I was out in the country, far from city lights over the weekend, and was able to see a totally awesome shooting star during the Perseid meteor shower. I got up about 3am, went outside just in time to see the largest shooting star I’ve ever seen right over my head. Decided it couldn’t get any better than that and went back in to bed.

Irene: Submitting this one for my (slightly dyslexic) hubby, Tim, who at first thought this was an Arlo because Janice found TIM in the bushes.

We’re thinking maybe the app is saying that if they could see through the earth, they would see the Southern Cross looking in that direction. Other than that, we really don’t know.

Actual conversation:

Tim: Don’t you look at that “Comics-that-need-explaining” blog?

Me: You mean Comics I Don’t Understand?

Tim: Yeah. That. Look up Arlo and Janice for today.

Me: It doesn’t work that fast. People submit them, and he picks.

Tim: Well, look at that one. Oh. Never mind. It says TMI, not TIM. I thought they caught us.

Was there really a Golden Age of Grocery Bagging?

Because seriously, there was never in my memory time when it was done well.

Or is the joke that Arlo is just a cranky old man (”In my day…”)?

MAKE GROCERY BAGGING GREAT AGAIN!

Hopefully he meant “grand-daughter,” or else this strip is about to take a very weird and ugly turn

Arlo the Magnificent!

Cidu Bill on May 30th 2016

Since the first one I posted today wasn’t much fun…

Pirk: I guess the most obvious explanation is that they had sex . . . But an angry eyed Arlo griping “Are you about ready?” just doesn’t seem like the sort of thing that Janis would respond to with sex. And there’s no indication that sex happened. Really, what’s going on here?

Sane

Because reconnecting with her college friends on Facebook reminds her of things she did in college?

(and if so, is this the first we’ve been told that she went to art school?)

Tinker to Evers to Chance to Arlo to Janis

A hundred years ago, they were a famous Chicago Cubs double-play combination. It’s possible that in the off-season, since ballplayers were all that well paid, they took jobs at the Chicago Diner serving coffee — but probably not.

And following yesterday’s Arlo and Janis… I don’t follow today’s Arlo and Janis.

Any relation to the old strip where pre-adolescent Gene asks Arlo why he spends so much longer applying sunblock to Janis than to him?

CATV

Okay, since the Arlo and Janis strip I’d chosen for today’s CIDU turned out to have been too easy, let’s go back to the Days with another one.

What I’m seeing here is Arlo laughing at what’s probably a YouTube cat video and then Luddie, seeing this, (somehow) destroys the television.

First of all, Jimmy didn’t even leave open the slightest possibility that Arlo means anything other than what we think he means. That’s why the award is named after… um, Arlo Guthrie.

But they’ve been married for thirty years or so (in the context of the comic strip), and she’s fine with him walking in on her bathing, so I’m having some trouble with the basic premise of her being so shy about her body.

When’s the beef?

This ran today.

Are we supposed to understand that this has been sitting in the fridge for a month and a half? In which case Jimmy’s obviously ending the strip because Arlo and Janis will probably be dead by tomorrow morning?

If it had been in the freezer, where’s the joke?
