Low-Class Bongos

This isn’t really a CIDU. Given this comic’s schtick, I assume the joke is that he’s attacking Loretta because she’s taken something classy (classical music), and made it dumb and low class by playing it on the bongos. But as I commented to SingaporeBill when he sent this in, it just seems like a really strange and difficult-to-understand attack, because playing on the bongos and making it sound like “Flight of the Bumblebee” would actually be pretty impressive.

Saturday Morning Oys – July 17th, 2021

From Andréa, as a kind of Arlo-OY:

Of course people have always thought “Ira Roth” could be someone’s name.

Oh wait! Just noticed that Arnold Zwicky’s blog goes into linguistic and referential detail about this one.

Do they somehow have different DNA?
There’s always room for a Bizarro! This would fit with the Ewww-LOL tag.

It’s charming that the other guy also seems to be there to work on his poetry.

Saturday Morning Oys – July 10th, 2021

From Andréa:
Andréa otra vez

Do they have something backwards, tho?

And it’s an Andréa hat trick. She also remarks on this one: “HOWEVER, there is NO SUCH THING as a ‘pita pan’, altho there ARE restaurants named such.”

Hmm, the status as an OY may be slightly dubious, but it’s worth it.
