Hey Hey

I guess you don’t have to be an AARP member to enjoy this comic, but I don’t think you’re likely to really get the fifth panel if you’re not. And could you ever have imagined yourself, in the mid-1960s, as a member of the AARP?

Knit One…

Cidu Bill on Dec 7th 2009

Nor really synchronicity, of course, but several people pointed out that we got a double dose of awful Pearls Before Swine puns yesterday

Those Who Cannot Remember the Pastis…

pastis.gif

Obviously a reference to former attorney Stephan Pastis, who draws the Pearls Before Swine strip; but is there an actual gag here, or just a gratuitous shout-out?

Brads Before Swine

Rhys: I work in publishing, and I have no idea what a “brad” is. I’ve also consulted two dictionaries and google. Please tell me I’m not the only clueless one!
 
If he’d written “Brads” rather than “brads,” I’d have guessed he meant the author could recycle the character’s name so the manuscript wouldn’t be a complete loss. Since he did not, I’m as stumped as Rhys (while also, in fact, working in publishing) -Bill

Is PBS in reruns this week? Because the hedgehog-throwing incident took place in February of 2008, and I can’t believe it took Pastis more than a year to come up with this gag.

Comics That Made Us Laugh Out Loud in the First Week of April

Cidu Bill on Apr 7th 2008

saturday-dali.gif
I don’t know why, but Dali Lama humor always cracks me up. The joke where he calls the pizzeria and says “Make me one with everything”… The birthday card where you see him opening a gift box and he says “Just what I always wanted! Nothing!”
Maybe I’m just easy to amuse.

…people that say ”people that” instead of ”people who”…

Yes, I know that “people that” is very common, especially in the midwest… but it bugs the hell out of me and one of the perks of being an editor is that I get to change it. The Official Bill Bickel Style Guide.This is not a CIDU of course.
