Sunday Funnies – LOLs, November 21st, 2021

Syndicated cartoon comic panel called off the mark cartoons created by Mark Parisi Atlantic Feature Syndicate dba Mark Parisi, 16 Slayton Road, Melrose, MA 02176-4222+1 (781) 665-4442,

H/t to Professor Ceiling Cat (Emeritus) for including this 2003 Off The Mark in last Tuesday’s Why Evolution Is True blog.

A sad-LOL in this The Far Side. (Remote-linked, not copied nor embed-linked.)

Saturday Morning Oys – November 20th, 2021

Luckily (I suppose) that we’ve been de-emphasizing “synchronicities”, or I would be slapping my forehead at not being able to re-find the one I saw in the last couple days with an apparently British guy approaching a band practice and asking “Mind if I sit in on your marmalade?”.

Second-order synchros of LOLs

What I mean by “second-order synchronicity” is that Arthur was struck by two different synchro pairs on the same day.

“Barney & Clyde matches with MGG:”

“And Close To Home matches with Off the Mark:”

“Neither are exact matches, but both immediately caught my eye.”

under the remaining five red baidagko

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.)

And neither was on Boxing Day

An almost-synchronicity pair from Andréa.

The dog in the Off The Mark could be a boxer, but Grimmy is documented as “a yellow bull terrier”. He’s certainly not old enough to have been in the real, original so-called “Boxer Rebellion” — nobody reading this could be — so this must be referencing the recent famous fashion turn against a certain style of men’s undershorts … mustn’t it?

Somewhat slapdash Shakespeare but what the hey?

And here is the shocking exposé!

“The following contains scenes of people not accepting what they cannot change. Viewer discretion is advised.”
He thinks he’s so clever, but … !

This time the cartoon should for sure be taken on its own, and doesn’t need the Hax column.
