Nice to see the cat and dog working together so nicely!
A small but very nice touch is where the words you and happy are used.
This must be a LOL-Eww:
And an unrelated but very funny Bliss, sent in by Targuman.
Thanks to BillR for sending this one:
Is there a song we should be familiar with that *is* about fish and this performer might have in his repertoire? Or wait, that he might have been getting requests for and had to decline?
Eats, shoots, and leaves.
These are comics that somebody thought were pretty good, or even full LOL, and not baffling but a little hard to pin down. Like, you can think of a rather plausible explanation of the chuckle — or maybe two! — but there’s nothing that clinches the case that *this* or *that* just has to be the key to what’s going on.
For example, with something like this Andertoons, we might think of the minor mystery as expressed in terms of providing the missing caption. Is it about the odd feeling you’re being watched? Or more like “Oh, where did I set down my glasses?”. It could be either, do you agree?
A Minor Mystery from Darren, who says “I can’t tell if Watson’s jarns need to be interpreted as a specific term. I’m flummoxed. Apparently the squirrel is as well?”
Okay, the joke here is that the threatened punishment will involve a cannister vacuum cleaner (in what seems to be a photo clip?) rather than a conventional physical beating or the like. But it’s an unanswerable mystery just what the threat is. Torture by exposure to noisy motor, like a household pet? Being inhaled altogether? Having some portion of his body inhaled?
The last few weeks I’ve felt that Wrong Hands has been a bit off their best form. But this one seems a good case of returning to their former standard.
So here is another Wrong Hands, sent in by Philip, who notes that as an Oy it would be tripartite. (Have we seen this one before?)
I have never sat down on a cat …. that did not immediately make the situation known! 🙂
Six of one, half-dozen of the other, sent by Phil Smith III
(Also adding in another Condron as he was unfamiliar to me.)
Bizarro provides an excellent new word! Via Andréa:
Also via Andréa:
From Andréa, here is a matched pair of geezer-warning Oys!
Was that a good word-play or more simply a LOL?
More on the Sad-LOL bandwagon!
Trying for diversity in the writers room.
And from the The Cartoonist knows more than the Character Department:
And circling back to where we began, another Mannequin:
Digital cartoons don’t exist? Or are less self-aware? And why are newer comic characters in black-and-white?
