IBB, The Next Generation [OT]

Cidu Bill on Jun 23rd 2017

I just got an angry e-mail from an attorney telling me “my” daughter is claiming he’s representing her in an injury lawsuit when in fact he is not.

I grew suspicious because I have two sons.

So clearly, Idiot Bill Bickel’s daughter also doesn’t know his  e-mail address.

This will never end.

Personal Super-Synchroniciy

Cidu Bill on Jun 19th 2017

A couple of days ago I found myself in the middle of a group of twenty-to-thirty people, all walking together to what I later realized was a Saturday evening showing of Wonder Woman at a monstrously-large London iMax: I counted two Jokers (both new-school), half a dozen Harley Quinns at various levels of sluttiness, two Spider-Men, a Captain America, and other various characters. Oddly enough, only one Wonder Woman.

Ich bin zurück gekehrt [OT]

Cidu Bill on Jun 19th 2017

Back from Germany. Actually, back from Germany and England, but they speak something similar to English there.

Our thanks to Kilby (who, it turns out, actually does have a first name, and it’s the same as Columbo’s), for showing us around Berlin and the surrounding area. I have to be honest: since we hadn’t planned on leaving the city, I hadn’t even known Sans Souci was anywhere near Berlin. 

Now to handle some all-important CIDU matters (and do laundry)…

I don’t seem to be able to upload a video here. I also apparently don’t know how to link to a specific Facebook post.

So if anybody wants to spend six minutes and one second watching something I found entertaining, you can pop over to my Facebook page.

Nolo Comprende

Cidu Bill on Jun 13th 2017

Nolo Contendere, as all geezers old enough to remember Spiro Agnew know, is a legal term meaning “I’m not saying I’m guilty, but I realize you have enough evidence to convict me anyway, so screw it.”

Not sure quite how it applies here, though.

Just a note…

Cidu Bill on Jun 9th 2017

Several people sent me CIDUs over the past 24 hours. Generally, I post them as soon as possible, but in this case I have no idea how WordPress would handle it if I scheduled something when I was in Berlin: would the posts go live at 12:02 Central Europe Time?

Based on how well WordPress handles something as simple as Daylight Saving Time…

Flashback Friday

Comic strip artists post repeats when they go on vacation, so why shouldn’t I?

Here’s what we were up to nine years ago (please note that links to non-CIDU pages probably won’t work)

“Milk, butter, sugar, giraffe, cheese, honey, flour, I think I got everything.”

But what’s the joke?

Of course, the name of the strip, Nichtlustig, means “not funny”…

Does this make any sense at all if you don’t know the original joke?

Everything’s queued up for the next couple of weeks, but I might not be able to free anybody from Moderation Hell.

Or maybe I will. Do they have Internet in Germany?
