A Nippy Morning (Arlo Award)

Cidu Bill on Dec 2nd 2016

It always seems so appropriate when we can give Jimmy Johnson the Arlo Award (even though, of course, it was named after Mr. Guthrie)

Actually, I’m not sure about the “I am,” comment, so I’m adding a CIDU tag.

Tough Sledding

Cidu Bill on Dec 1st 2016

This is a reprint from 2003, but that hardly affects the joke: just add 13 to each of the years.

On one hand, I don’t think this quite rises to Arlo Award level. On the other hand, I can’t think of a single humorous explanation that doesn’t involve naughty behavior.

The upside is, when I saw this comic earlier today, it reminded me to take the ground beef out of the freezer.

TMI

Cidu Bill on Aug 15th 2016

tmi-arlo.PNG

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!

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?

(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.
