I have a touch of that. Straightening things out of line. Probably OCD.
I tend to fix things when I come across an issue. I used to tighten the bits and pieces on the airplane I was in until it became impossible to carry a multi-tool unless you were a terrorist. (Yeah, I know I’m channeling the “outlaw guns and only outlaws will have guns” rant). I still pick up a-hole motorists’ trash (though these days, I use gloves).
Might as well inspect the plumbing while you’re down there.
There’s always some suit that thinks they know everything.
A one way trip to he11 for the guy with the too long tie
Careful with the political stuff — remember, Wiley already lost a bunch of newspapers by hiding “F*** Trump” in his strip.
I’m getting that old Ernie Kovacs vibe again.
I see the need for an additional symbol on a sign!
Buttercup’s policy: There’s only one way. Wish I knew what that was
QUICK Put the man hole cover back on
That’s what you get for keeping your head up. Dude, that sign was specifically put that way because the road crew ran out of watch your step signs!
I believe the adage is something about straining out gnats and swallowing camels – too preoccupied with trivial matters to see what’s important. (As contrasted with seeing the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and missing the 2×4 in your own – i.e. easier to see faults in others than recognize your own.)
No good deed goes unpunished!
Sometimes, what we see as wrong, is actually right. Arguing should not be about fighting, it should be about finding the truth.
More likely, " If you don’t know what you’re doing… " may also apply
Well, that was one way to interpret it.
Another way, punchline to old joke. “But officer, I was only going one way.”
Signs, signs, everywhere are signs.
My mother used to tell my father when he was driving us to some place or other, “Yes, dear. I know you should follow the signs, but you also need to watch where you’re going.” (Mind you, this was back in not only the last century, but he last millennium.)
The other day I watched a woman texting, walk around guys working on a pouring a new sidewalk and step into wet concrete. She said it was their fault!!
One must inquire: Why was the entrance to the sewer considered to be the “one way” in the first place? Wasn’t there “another way”?
I think it says, “Don’t make assumptions”. Get the facts before acting
So here I thought I did just a simple, silly sight gag that wouldn’t be contrued into leading a way for any cantankerous political takes. Seriously, can’t some of you just leave it alone for one moment and just enjoy the little things…like reading silly cartoons?
Our world today is seriously lacking in humor & can no longer take a joke.
In animation, the sign would have slipped back to point at the hole in the last panel.
Draw on Drawer
LOL, too funny, Wiley………… Actually, your comment is the way I have felt for decades – it’s just a comic! I’ve never figured out why some people read so much into a simple thing.
Never step into the street without looking all around first!
Please please guys: it’s a comic strip. Take a deep breath! No politics.
I stopped replying to almost all cartoons because of political stupidity.
a recent pearls before swine addressed the stupidity pandemicMr. Wiley sir, no one can escape its tentacles, even your readers are affected by it.
Love silly cartoons. You done good my friend-still miss you on Twitter, but I understand. Looking forward to Sundays effort.
This is not me. I procrastinate fixing things at my own home
There’s a difference between allegory and applicability.
but remember how popular Pogo was with the political side of things, and Lil Abner really took on the politicians.
@WILEY, I do Wiley, I do, nothing else!
