Moon hits a double today:
Thanks for this to Phil Smith III.
And as Phil pointed out, Dan Piraro’s blog and/or newsletter contained long and explicit explanations of this cartoon. So it would be best if CIDU readers who have seen those discussions hold off on correcting too soon the mistakes he explains.
(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.
What? What? I don’t get it!
Here’s one from Andréa and Mark Jackson:
This is from Andréa (and was a CIDU for Winter Wallaby, until Andréa explained it):
And this one from Chemgal:
Cartoonist recommended by Dan Piraro on the Bizarro blog. (And credited by Piraro with coming up with the idea for the “Bird / plane / Superman lineup” Sunday Bizarro we looked at last week.)
Here are the two Superman lineup cartoons:
Series of sampler cartoons from Hobbs.

Arlo-ish alert! A couple more that feature partial nudity.
“I didn’t have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead.”
One version suggested by Andréa, another plus discussion from Piraro in his blog.
Would it be fun to see that/those in an image-compare slider? I dunno, let’s try!
