Now everybody sympathize your watches!

Because when the clock strikes three, we will have the Big Synchronicity Roundup!

First up, Andréa was struck by the treatment of the old Goofy/Pluto problem, in Pearls Before Swine and Strange Brew:

Next up, Jerry found the focus on Feng Shui in Bizarro and Pickles:

Finally, BillR was seeing jigsaw puzzles all over the place, or at least in F-Minus and Rhymes With Orange:

Sunday Funnies – LOLs, August 15th, 2021

Yikes! Or is that LOL-Yikes?

Saturday Morning Oys – August 7th, 2021

This is from a book, Otto: A Palindrama by Jon Agee. It was brought to our attention by (and we picked up the image from) an online book review by Gene Ambaum, attached to his Library Comic newsletter.

Pastis is trying so hard in this one, how can we pass up enjoying another look?

Unless it’s disqualified because one of the characters is consciously making the pun joke?

Falco titled this “The Red Hoodie” in his enewsletter. But do we accept that these characters would use the plain form “hood” for either of the meanings required here? Mebbe.

From Andréa, a sort of OY-Awww!

Saturday Morning Oys – July 17th, 2021

From Andréa, as a kind of Arlo-OY:

Also Andréa:

This is not a full-fledged Sunday comic, but the intro and the two “throwaway” panels. Yet here is where the funny bit was!

From Mark Jackson:

Oh wait! Just noticed that Arnold Zwicky’s blog goes into linguistic and referential detail about this one.

Sunday Funnies – LOLs, July 11th, 2021

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.

Saturday Morning Oys – July 10th, 2021

From Andréa:
Andréa otra vez

Do they have something backwards, tho?

And it’s an Andréa hat trick. She also remarks on this one: “HOWEVER, there is NO SUCH THING as a ‘pita pan’, altho there ARE restaurants named such.”

Hmm, the status as an OY may be slightly dubious, but it’s worth it.

Remodel

Sent by Mark M, saying: “The mouse hole is taller than the usual depiction of one, but why would that deter the cat?” We were going to rejoinder that it is also much narrower, but on reflection that would not stop a determined paw. Anyhow, was this not the goal of the remodeling? Or does it somehow surprise the speaking rodent?
