An almost-synchro Ewww set. Thanks to Andréa for the “PC and Pixel”.
An almost-synchronicity pair from Andréa.
The dog in the Off The Mark could be a boxer, but Grimmy is documented as “a yellow bull terrier”. He’s certainly not old enough to have been in the real, original so-called “Boxer Rebellion” — nobody reading this could be — so this must be referencing the recent famous fashion turn against a certain style of men’s undershorts … mustn’t it?
Do you agree that both do a good job of mapping the dog characters here to the two hobos of the play?
Since the main CIDU for today was laid to rest early, here is a bonus post (though not a CIDU). This synchronicity was noted and submitted by both Andréa and Powers. (Also noted by Georgia Dunn! See below.)
In the comments section of GoComics, Georgia Dunn (the artist who does Breaking Cat News) posted the following:
So, I kind of fan-girled-out when I read my GoComics comic list last night and realized “Cathy Commiserations” also had a chocolate egg strip today!!
I like to hope Cathy and the Woman would be friends, if they ever had the chance to meet on the pages, lol!! I always loved the strip “Cathy” so much, and “Cathy Commiserations” has been SUCH a comfort the past twelve months!! Check it out today, if you’re feeling like binging some laughs!
(For those not familiar with BCN, the cats refer to the humans they live with as “the People” and separately “the Woman”, “the Man”, and different terms for the children as they have aged.)
The Cathy is a rerun, published in an earlier year on 11/24, and then republished on 11/24 of this year on the same date as Overboard. The Synchronicity Judges have ruled this acceptable. From Andréa.
A November 18th Synchron-eww-city from Andréa.
And another Synchron-eww-city from September 4th.
Synchronicity submitted by Mark in Boston:
And to emphasize their simultaneity, he enclosed this clipping from The Boston Globe:
Fans of Wayno’s blog may know he prepares two versions of each weekday Bizarro comic, in the different aspect ratios / formats. Here we see them both.
Synchronicity from Andréa.
They were one day apart, so not a true synchronicity, but close enough.
A remarkable Synchronicity, with both bearing today as publication date, found by Andréa, who asks if it could be that Scott Hilburn and Mark Parisi are the same person. Also noted by zbicyclist, Targuman, Boise Ed, and maybe others!
The overlap of details is unusual, but then again notice things like whether the nationalities are given as proper-adjectives or nouns.
