Hopefully a step above demonstrative-gestural lip syncing, the illustrated song comic can combine the best features of geezer nostalgia, punning, and comic drawing. A nice touch here is that Rubin combines the song’s key line that everyone remembers with its somewhat less-familiar title.
Bonus! On Twitter they provide a bit of animation with another line from the song. Actually, one in the tweet text, and another as an animated header – it may be lost to the crop here. But try clicking *once* on the “play” icon and it may show properly.
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.
Not exactly a CIDU, says Targuman when sending it in, but maybe an OY-I’d-like-to-improve? His issue is which geezer ref might fly better today: “Not a CIDU but this is 2021, wouldn’t U2’s Bono be a bit more famous (and alive)?”
This was a momentary CIDU, for want of a comma. Sent by Boise Ed. Ed did some research on our behalf and reports “If you look in the [GoComics] comments, you’ll see that it caught Mark Parisi by surprise.”
This is from a book, Otto: A Palindrama by Jon Agee. It was brought to our attention by (and we picked up the image from) an online book review by Gene Ambaum, attached to his Library Comic newsletter.
Pastis is trying so hard in this one, how can we pass up enjoying another look?
Unless it’s disqualified because one of the characters is consciously making the pun joke?
Falco titled this “The Red Hoodie” in his enewsletter. But do we accept that these characters would use the plain form “hood” for either of the meanings required here? Mebbe.
