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. And then he sent this in:
(Not a CIDU) But is it a valid claim?
Two aspirational comics spotted by Chemgal:
Uh-oh! Meta gone wild!
Something of an Ewww-Oy, as well as inspiring the tag misapplied-tech-talk!

From Andréa, as a kind of Arlo-OY:
This is not a full-fledged Sunday comic, but the intro and the two “throwaway” panels. Yet here is where the funny bit was!
From Mark Jackson:
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.
P.S. For anyone who may have difficulty reading upside down, here is the “solution” text flipped up:
Am I missing something, or did he just rule out suspect #1 because women aren’t strong enough to murder? Not sure if this is a CIDU (because I’ve overlooked something) or just a gripe.
I don’t think I’m missing something when I complain that the Inspector rules out suspect #3, just because suspect #3 isn’t eating chicken at the very moment he’s being questioned. How does that make sense? Suspect #2 isn’t eating chicken when he’s questioned either.
Getting some ZZZZs is an ongoing theme with Horace; but this seemed an amusing example!
It’s charming that the other guy also seems to be there to work on his poetry.
Do they have something backwards, tho?
Hmm, the status as an OY may be slightly dubious, but it’s worth it.
