Saturday Morning Oys – September 4th, 2021

This is not really a solid Oy, not really very funny, but somehow it’s just … just … just *something*.

Here’s a chuckle-OY from Philip:

Here’s one done by Jenny:

This time Junk Drawer is about a junk drawer!

BUT that doesn’t mean only the namesake can discuss the junk drawer!

Okay, okay, not really a LOL. And certainly not an Ewwww. Just more like …. an Awwww?

Bliss and Martin do a nice job with the last-second twist:

I had asked for comic with covid inconsistencies. There were enough comics sent in that I’m splitting the comics into two posts. Part 2 coming tomorrow.

And two comics from the original post asking for covid inconsistency comics, in case anyone wanted to comment on those.

Some e-mails mentioned covid inconsistencies in tv shows as well. I won’t repost the e-mail discussions, but feel free to discuss tv shows as well as comics in the comments. (I guess that goes without saying, as it follows from the fact that you should feel free to veer wildly off-topic.)

CIDU – these reverse or warning sayings are always confusing. “Feed a cold and starve a fever” — Is that two pieces of advice (cold and fever seen as two different conditions to be treated by opposite dietary strategies) or a single one (feed when you have a cold, and it will kill off [starve] the fever, which is this time another name for the cold)?
