Bufo

So in the extra-terrestrial version of Buni, the girl he’s in love with, and the guy she loves, “he” gets the girl and the other guy is left out in the cold? Das ist alles?

But then… why does Buni seem dismayed? There seems to be a lot of extraneous goings-on here, if it’s only supposed to be a reverse of the Earth (or Planet of Sentient Rabbits) relationship.

Boise Ed: The middle guy of panel 3 is the boss in Rudy Park. Why, in panel 4, is the Dalek going after Susan’s boss in Darrin Bell’s other strip, Candorville? There has been no indication of a crossover between the two.

“Wildly Inappropriate”??

Cidu Bill on Feb 19th 2017

first-names.gif

This strip’s punchline — which is kind of odd no matter what — assumes there’s only one version of “appropriate” in these things. When I was a kid, we called all our parents’ friends by their first names, but our friends’ parents by their surnames. No exceptions as far as I can remember.

In the neighborhood where our kids went to elementary school, all adults went by their first names (though when one of them became our younger son’s teacher, she shifted to “Mrs. L —” for him but remained “M —” for his older brother).

Then we moved across the state, where local custom dictates that all adults be called by their surnames by the younger generation, even the ones who are essentially family. One of these kids — who’s like a nephew to us, and is in his late 20s now and about to be married — tried out calling me “Bill” for a few days, apparently felt uncomfortable with it, and went back to “Mister Bickel.”

Or maybe the king loves the song, and that’s why he wants his prisoners to re-create it for him.

On a related note, how tired do you think YMCAs are of seeing this:

“Yeah, yeah, we get it. And it was hysterical back in 1978, before you were even born.”

And okay, while we’re here, there was this.
