Saturday Morning Oys – November 20th, 2021

Luckily (I suppose) that we’ve been de-emphasizing “synchronicities”, or I would be slapping my forehead at not being able to re-find the one I saw in the last couple days with an apparently British guy approaching a band practice and asking “Mind if I sit in on your marmalade?”.

Mr. Snail bought a snazzy sports car, and he ordered some detailing: a big “S” on the sides. When asked why, he explained he wanted all the people on the streets to notice him in the car and say: _________________________ YOUR QUIZ IS TO FILL IN THE BLANK!


Return of the repressed? Yep, Argyle Sweater always has a pun in store! This one sent by Le Vieux Lapin, and it delivers a double shot of Oy!

Perhaps slightly technical jargon, but not unfamiliar.

Veterans Day add-ons

Cartoons with Veterans relevance that we recently ran across, or that CIDU Bill had saved to the site’s media library with a note for possible Veterans Day add-on use.

This one Bill marked “Nov 11 Veterans Day addon”. It was posted in https://comicsidontunderstand.com/2020/11/11/one-more-for-veterans-day/


This one Bill marked “UDIC Frazz Veterans Day” . It was posted as https://comicsidontunderstand.com/2018/11/09/udic/

They just don’t quit with the puns over at Mannequin on the Moon!

Is it a Geezer factoid to remember the term for this particular form of standing arm-wrestling?

Is a Spoonerism necessarily a pun? Maybe not, but it can still be an Oy!

Jan’s dating adventure continues. This seems to use a pun on an unspoken characterization.

And it is rather cute to think about how the cymbals can be incorporated into a password. Probably no more annoying than when the form has no way of communicating the legal symbols it will accept to your secure-random-password generator.

I really like treating “erudite” as the name of a mineral. But don’t care for the supposed punch line here that was used to get that across and try to pun on the standard meaning.

Saturday Morning Oys – October 9th, 2021

Boise Ed recommends Doc Rat, and this Oy from the October 1 front page at Docrat.com.au was more available than others.

A CIDU-Oy of sorts, sent in by Usual John, who says “This is from Brevity, so it presumably is some kind of Oy, but I really don’t get it. I guess this is a version of Doc Holliday, but why is he offering to be my huckleberry?”

And indeed Brevity is generally going to yield up some species of OY, as here:
