Saturday Morning Oys – February 27th, 2021

XKCD #559. Mouseover text: “Like spelling ‘dammit’ correctly — with two m’s — it’s a troll that works best on the most literate.”

Y’know, it’s true both ways!

Okay, this pun is done all the time, not only in cartoons but standup and sketch comedy too. But this is such a nice pure instantiation of it!

Sunday Funnies – LOLs, November 22nd, 2020

“This explains a lot” says Stan:

From Andréa:

But he still gets a lot of “Oh yeah? What did it use to be?”.

“To Serve Man”.
(Color version posted by Andréa in comments to Oh Deer Me thread!)

School for gifted neonates!

Never runs out.

A LOL-Eww from Bob Ball.

“Who will you be wearing to the awards?”

This is what the caption field within an Image Block looks like, for the curious.

2 and done, Monday afternoon bonus

The “1 and done” panel comic is not quite new to CIDU, but pretty rare. Here are two of their entries from a recent week. In the first one you can sort of make out the text in the manuscript, and it incorporates the important discovery that this draft was done in (Modern or Early-Modern) English! And on the meta plane, to boot, the caption launches with the same opening words.

This one is also a LOL, but something of a CIDU into the bargain.  We get the idea of a joke, the mismatch between the grandiosity of the way he expresses it and the mundanity of the task. BUT why does he look like Moses? Is he delusional? Does he just like to dress up? Or maybe this is Moses, thrown into modern life?
