Carl Fink sent in the Loose Parts, which we supplemented with the Lockhorns on a similar motif.
Is it kind of charming that Loretta still has romantic expectations?
Carl says “So, let me ask this question: has anyone seen an actual ‘Tunnel of Love’ at a fair in the past, say, 40 years? Would anyone under that age have any idea what’s going on here? Is that old carnival attraction even remembered now only because of cartoons like this one?”
Also, what is going on? People keep climbing into those boats even though they can see the solid wall and the mounting crashes? Is it almost as much their incompetence as that of the designers of the attraction?
This isn’t really a CIDU. Given this comic’s schtick, I assume the joke is that he’s attacking Loretta because she’s taken something classy (classical music), and made it dumb and low class by playing it on the bongos. But as I commented to SingaporeBill when he sent this in, it just seems like a really strange and difficult-to-understand attack, because playing on the bongos and making it sound like “Flight of the Bumblebee” would actually be pretty impressive. And then he sent this in:
This is true, but where’s the joke? If Loretta was insulting Leroy, I would understand this as a standard Lockhorn comic, and not needing anything additional. But this doesn’t seem mean, so much as a basic statement of fact. If anything, it’s a little reassuring.
