    Yeah – maybe a better punchline might have been “Ms. Harvey, you HAVE to stop letting your son snort catnip.”

    I don’t get it. I understand there’s a cat up the kid’s nose, but surely that’s not the joke? If so, what would be the point?

    He mentions “Ms. Harvey”, and that the kid’s name is “Jimmy”. Usually that would mean the artist is referring to an adult named “James Harvey” or “Jim Harvey” – possibly someone who, in the last 20 years, put something he shouldn’t have up his nose.

    Or maybe the doctor (who obviously hasn’t seen jimmy yet) is in for a big surprise when he sees it’s a cat? If it’s just “a kid got a cat stuck up his nose, don’t kids do the darndest things??” I’m going to be disappointed. But I guess the fact that I have to have the joke explained to me has already done that.

    I don’t get it. Is the joke that even the best student driver still sucks?

    @gir63 no, the joke is that they named the bird, which makes him feel more like a pet, and now they can’t eat him because they’d feel guilty.

    Of course, if you grow up in the country, animals you’ve named and animals you feel okay eating are not mutually exclusive :)

    @wildcatherder omaha isn’t the joke. There’s a pretty well-known company, Omaha Steaks, that sells meat. This joke was a little weak, just a pun written on a box. And a joke should still make some sense. So you called the wrong company, okay, but what did you ask for? Just “a box of your products”??

    I don’t get this either. I’m missing why the wings would make people overlook the dumbness. Oh wait, is it an evolution joke? Like he’s not smart, but he’s the most “advanced” of his species?

    …there were no survivors.

    I thought this comic was the worst. Then I read the comments.

    Searching for John Summers doesn’t turn up any relation to golf OR Kansas, that I can find. And it distracts from the main joke because it’s so prominent that it took me a few seconds to even notice the golf club in the window.

    It’s so bold and specific that if it’s not part of the joke, it shouldn’t be there. My guess is that it’s some inside joke.

    Zing! Take THAT, movie from a quarter of a century ago!
