I can think of several different possible explanations, none of which quite makes sense.

I’m old enough that this hardly seems like a geezer reference.

What the actual joke is, on the other hand, stumps me.

Boise Ed: $240 for a few hours’ non-work? Wow! Assuming it’s just dinner, and say, three hours out, that’s $80 an hour for babysitting. I would expect something in the cartoon to indicate WHY they are spending $240, but nothing does that for me.

On one hand, I’m not following what he’s getting at. On the other hand, bonus points for spelling “lede” correctly.

A few weeks ago, I was following some online discussion — I don’t recollect what it was about — and somebody claimed he knew what he was talking about because he’d been a reporter for over 30 years. Then he used the expression “burying the lead.”

Busted, dude.

Ring Tones

Cidu Bill on Jul 8th 2017

ringtones.PNG

Ringtones are the 21st century’s greatest opportunities for passive-aggressive behavior since, unless you’re unfortunate like Cynthia, the person calling never knows what ringtone you’ve assigned to their calls. Like the guy I was with a few years ago whose phone rang with a funeral dirge and he answered with “Hi, Mom.”

Presumably there are issues.

Most of the ringtones on my phone are benign, such as “Blinded Me With Science” playing when my mad scientist older son calls, and “Pictures From an Exhibition” when my younger son, the artist, calls.

But the fun comes when you, well, choose ringtones you’d rather the person not know about, the way Cynthia did. We have a friend, whom we’ve known for twenty years, who always feels the need to both tell me her name after I say hello (as if my phone hasn’t already displayed it), but describe who she is. After the millionth time, I realized she reminded me of this running gag from Doctor Who:

So now when she calls, what I hear in place of a ring is “Harriet Jones, Prime Minister!”

Anyway, what are everybody else’s favorite ringtones? You do not need to mention specific names, of course.

Or, and I might be overthinking this, is the joke supposed to be that Special Delivery exited at the same time the Flintstones television program did?

Oh, and just for the heck of it…
