This time Junk Drawer is about a junk drawer!

BUT that doesn’t mean only the namesake can discuss the junk drawer!

Okay, okay, not really a LOL. And certainly not an Ewwww. Just more like …. an Awwww?

Bliss and Martin do a nice job with the last-second twist:

From Dave Berg, who sent it in as CIDU. There is potentially a fairly direct explanation, however (reserved for now — we’ll see if you’all agree). But it still leaves this a good, ironic, chuckle.

A Meta from Working Daze:

And a LOL-Eww as a fitting end:

After seeing this cartoon for a few weeks now, this character is the one who most pointedly clarifies for us the intent of the title Adult Children.

And yielding to the impulse to be a language complainer, we are happy to note that here the writer has stuck to the traditional term and called this an invitation, not the ugly newer form an invite. Good on ya, Maritsa Patrinos!

An amusing meta from Harry Bliss, sent in by Andréa and zbicyclist:

And zbicyclist kicks off a little debate by saying: Since Bliss has many cartoons in the New Yorker, he’s probably frequently asked to explain OTHER obscure New Yorker cartoons — which would make the sitting, bearded guy some sort of stand-in for the cartoonist. But to our eyes, the standing guy with the red sweater looks like the figure who appears again and again in Bliss cartoons.

But then zbicyclist rebuts with this example of an apparent Bliss stand-in (or a comic artist at any rate) with a beard:

But we have to ask: OK, there’s a beard, but which of the guys in the upper cartoon does this guy most resemble, to you?

From the Theodicy Dept.
The (still) “new” Nancy strip is many different things, to different people, from time to time. But here it seems to score a pretty direct LOL!

Hey Geezers, remember when U.S. foreign policy tensions were focused on Russia and China?

There’s hurricanes in Florida and Texas needs rain …
