Ah, so young to be falling into the essence of Meta!

Cul de Sac
Mannequin on the Moon

And thanks to Shamie F who sent it in and says: “I think it has something to do with a flying cup looking for a flying saucer. If that’s the whole point then OY!  I’m thinking I must be missing something though.” We think the default tag here would be LOL moreso than OY (a flying saucer is called that just because of resemblance to an ordinary saucer), but how does the gang weigh in on the “is that all there is?” factor?

Adult Children

Here’s one from BillR:

Andertoons

Very smart to use Peter’s name – the others are more easily identifiable.

But on the griping side of things, the wolf I think did not emerge a winner from any of their encounters. Maybe it depends on versions of the stories.

Thanks to Michelle for this LOL bit of pained irony:

(This was actually part of a linked series, but seeing the preceding strips wouldn’t make much difference, apart from explaining what might otherwise be a mysterious detail — she was hit in the head by a flying baseball, and is holding an ice bag to it for pain relief.)

And a second shot for Pardon My Planet. This one is a LOL-CIDU. It did take a couple minutes before we got it – but not hard enough to justify making it a separate CIDU post. Also (I confess) it shows the perils of holding on to a negative attitude about some comic strip — one reason I didn’t get it at first was dismissing some meaningful details as merely haphazard artwork.

LOL-synchro from an unlikely pair!

And a last minute Sunday Bizarro LOL.

Thanks to Arnold Zwicky’s blog for introducing us to Poorly Drawn Lines

Have we had this one before? I recall some discussion of “To Serve Man”. But not this trope of “The old surprise ending is so familiar and boring, we have to put in a different twist.”

And no, it shouldn’t be the other way around!

Getting some ZZZZs is an ongoing theme with Horace; but this seemed an amusing example!

Do they somehow have different DNA?
There’s always room for a Bizarro! This would fit with the Ewww-LOL tag.

It’s charming that the other guy also seems to be there to work on his poetry.

Andertoons is a bastion of b/w/grey, small jokes, big funny! A couple of this week’s episodes:

And Jay adds one more for our collection of black and white (and greyscale) LOLs!

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:
