Friday Afternoon CIDU/Arlo

Cidu Bill on Aug 4th 2017

Okay, so… Andréa sent this to me for the Arlo file — but while I trust her judgment, I have no idea what the joke is (despite knowing what “manspreading” is), and therefore, obviously, I also don’t see the Arloicity.

Reposting this for W. W., who objected to my timing when I posted it last month: hot enough for you now? (and also dedicated to James)

Because they don’t burst when softly tossed at somebody’s face from a short distance?

If so, what what really puzzles me is that Marla is agreeing with the customer rather than internalizing some “all customers are idiots” thought.

Just a warning…

Cidu Bill on Aug 2nd 2017

I’m switching computers, so there will be some accidental repeats on the horizon (and said repeats might not actually show up for several weeks). I will, however, try to be vigilant.

What do they gain by including a fake brand to make themselves come in fourth rather than third?

Far be it from me to quibble, but…

Wouldn’t this make a lot more sense if they’d substituted “robots” with “machines”?

Unless “robots” is being used for some specific purpose I’m not seeing.

Bed

I’m not really sure how to tag this — it isn’t an LOL exactly — but I felt it was worth a salute.

Body Image

Did anybody else find this kind of unsettling? Jeremy’s actions, Sara’s reaction, Jeremy and Hector’s discussion, all of it… It’s like something that might have run in the forties or fifties, and not in a good way.

Clocks

Cidu Bill on Jul 28th 2017

Edited to add: So apparently this did have a caption, which for some reason didn’t make it onto the copy that was sent to me. Since Mona and 1958 Fury were considerate enough not to spill the beans, let’s turn this into a “create your own caption” contest (only, of course, for those of you who don’t remember the caption from the origin comic and didn’t look it up).

Shouldn’t that be “Office RUSSIAN Roulette”?

Cidu Bill on Jul 25th 2017

By the way, the first time I ever heard of “Russian roulette” was from this Mad Magazine cartoon

mad_russianroulette.jpg
So of course it was a CIDU.

It took me well under a minute to track down this graphic — and I was indignant that it took almost two minutes to come up with the exact issue (July 1963).

We really do take the Internet for granted.

A mendiant is a sort of chocolate candy, which doesn’t help at all.
