Is “Baby Boob Generation” something anybody’s ever actually said?

I find it a bit disconcerting when a ”rerun” strip sometimes gets updated and sometimes doesn’t

CIDJew

Is there any non-offensive interpretation to this comic (and what precisely is the joke)?

The arc goes downhill from here, suggesting that John Forgetta’s total knowledge of Jews comes from Rhoda reruns.

Are the generalizations in the second and third panels based in fact? Because my observations tell me they are not.

Has anybody ever referred to a single person adopting a child as “having a child out of wedlock”?

(and of course this rerun strip carries some unintentional foreshadowing, since years later Lila will adopt Annie)

Buzzkill of the Month

Cidu Bill on May 5th 2010

The Meaning of Lila is a gag-a-day strip that never gets more serious than Lila spending too much money on shoes: a fairly shallow strip about very shallow people. The current storyline involved Lila’s best friend getting into an auto accident and losing her unborn baby — yet still retaining the gag-a-day format!

Seriously, what the hell…?

This is not to say that humorous strips can’t delve into serious topics. There have been many well-written examples, including a Calvin and Hobbes sequence about a dead bird. But this is just so out of left field and inappropriate for this particular strip. I mean, even Funky Winkerbean hasn’t made jokes about dead babies yet.

The story arc begins here.

So because Boyd is gay he uses tampons?? I can’t imagine even Ann Coulter suggesting something like this.

Okay, maybe…

Hate Her

Just for the record, Lila on the left, her gay pal Boyd on the right, and Boyd’s boyfriend Jamey in the middle. Now granted I’m not up on my homosexual etiquette, but is there some reason Lila’s referring to Jamey as “her”?
