Did I Ever Use These LOLs in 2013?

Cidu Bill on Dec 31st 2013

Hey, remember at the end of 2012 when I uploaded a whole bunch of LOLs I wasn’t sure whether I’d used already, because I wanted to clear out my hard drive once and for all, and going forward I’d be keeping everything more organized?

That was the plan, anyway…

Am I misreading this, or is Norm supposed to be literally brain-dead?

I have a photo from my brother’s wedding where he’s holding the cake knife against his wife’s throat. I wonder what Norm would make of that.

Salad

Is this just one of those deals where a comic strip character gets irrationally angry over something a normal person wouldn’t even notice? I mean, when we go to our favorite Italian restaurant, I always order spaghetti with Bolognese sauce. Sometimes I will look at the menu anyway, and usually my wife points out that I shouldn’t bother because I’m going to order spaghetti with Bolognese sauce anyway.

And I have never — she’s willing to put this in writing — responded by storming off in a huff.

Because he simply divides people into those who can thread a belt through the loops and those who can’t??

An Even More Important Tip: Never Congratulate a Woman on Her Pregnancy Unless You’re 100% Certain She IS Pregnant

Cidu Bill on Jan 11th 2009

This just baffles me: Is complimenting a woman on her varicose veins something that anybody actually does, at any time or under any circumstances?
