Veteran’s Day

Cidu Bill on Nov 11th 2017

The first time I posted the link to this Arlo and Janis story (runs for six days), somebody told me they should run it in the newspapers every year. Since that’s not likely to happen, I’ll do the next best thing by posting the link each year.

And on the same basic subject, it’s probably hard to really appreciate this one unless you were 18 years old during a very specific time:

“Longer”? As in “The part of your life that’s already passed is longer”?

Honestly, this one was headed to the CIDU folder before Terrence sent it to me with an Arlo tag

The comics and subject like were both submitted by Boise Ed

And the first three panels of the Arlo and Janis get the CIDU tag.

Presumably Janis doesn’t really suspect raccoons and Arlo knows it, but beyond that I got nothing

Singing 9 to 5

Cidu Bill on Oct 2nd 2017

9-to-5.JPG

There have been articles suggesting that people go to sleep at 9 and wake up at 5?

And according to the strip Arlo is excited about this?

(though he might feel less excited about it at 5am)

Then why are they walking around in their bare feet like idiots?

Okay, fair question…

Personally, I almost always say “And we’re off to see the Wizard” — though sometimes I break things up with “Allons-y!”

I can’t tell because I have to watch the mirror when I’m backing out of our driveway, but I’m sure my wife’s usually rolling her eyes.

Where do Arlo and Janis live, anyway? The Tower of London? Xanadu?

Honestly, I can’t think of any definition by which this discussion makes sense.

So why are they sitting outside, as if air conditioning hasn’t been invented yet?

You know, this would be a lot funnier if it didn’t happen to us at least once a month.

Okay, it’s 1am, the kids are asleep… what WAS Arlo’s Arlo word?

What did everybody make of this?

Cidu Bill on Jul 1st 2017

If anything was going on here (is Janis flirting with him?), it was never followed up on…

…Or was it? This strip followed about three weeks later:

Are we looking at a slowly-simmering storyline here? It would be kind of cool if we were.

The Fusco Brothers Go Arlo (and other stories)

Cidu Bill on Jul 1st 2017

BVCC sent this Fusco Brothers comic for the Arlo file:

The 4th-wall-breaking reference to how cartoon characters are drawn reminded me of this recent Wizard of Id comic:

rodney.GIF

Which in turn had reminded me of this CIDU:

Is this a meta joke about how, since Arlo’s nose is so cartoonishly large, the mask won’t fit over his face properly?
