Sunday Funnies – LOLs, September 26th, 2021 

This Bliss is something of an LOL-Eww.

Sent in as a LOL or semi CIDU-LOL by Chak, who asks “And do we think the bowling bag is important here?”

How annoying, to be mis-speciesed!

Ah, so young to be falling into the essence of Meta!

Mannequin on the Moon

And thanks to Shamie F who sent it in and says: “I think it has something to do with a flying cup looking for a flying saucer. If that’s the whole point then OY!  I’m thinking I must be missing something though.” We think the default tag here would be LOL moreso than OY (a flying saucer is called that just because of resemblance to an ordinary saucer), but how does the gang weigh in on the “is that all there is?” factor?

Here’s one from BillR:

Very smart to use Peter’s name – the others are more easily identifiable.

But on the griping side of things, the wolf I think did not emerge a winner from any of their encounters. Maybe it depends on versions of the stories.

Thanks to Michelle for this LOL bit of pained irony:

Saturday Morning Oys – September 11th, 2021

Looking for 9/11 commemorative material to watch tonight?

Great Performances – Verdi’s Requiem: The Met Remembers 9/11

Premiere: 9/11/2021 | 00:00:30 | 

Honor the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks with this special performance hosted by Misty Copeland and led by Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin featuring soloists Ailyn Pérez, Michelle DeYoung, Matthew Polenzani and Eric Owens.

Blame it on those ink-stained drudges …

Boise Ed sent this in, and says “We have sometimes chatted about colorists, and this A&J blog is the best illustration of that that I have ever seen.  (See the text at https://arloandjanis.com/colorful-explanation .)”

Go to that link for Jimmy Johnson’s full account. But we could stand some explication of his closing remark: “And, no, it was not intended to be dirty in the least.” Does anyone else have some surprise reconciling that claim with the Jack Spratt saying?

We were calling this a CIDU briefly while trying to understand why it was a Summer Concert but the bands were not notably summer foods. But then quashed the question on the basis that summer is just when there are lots of concerts and particularly the big outdoor festivals.

Jenny also sent this in, and considered it sort of a CIDU, asking “Why is meatloaf on the list, along with the veggies?”.

Saturday Morning Oys – September 4th, 2021

This is not really a solid Oy, not really very funny, but somehow it’s just … just … just *something*.

The legacy of “Who’s on first?” is an apparently inexhaustible vein of humor!

Here’s a chuckle-OY from Philip:

Here’s one done by Jenny:
