You can always write abbrv.
that is quite something to ponder
If it wasn’t long, you wouldn’t have an abbr. for it. Next.
But the one that’s really odd is why there’s no synonym for synonym.
How come the word “palindrome” isn’t spelled the same backward and forward?
Why doesn’t “hyphenated” have a hyphen? Why aren’t vehicles allowed on a driving range?
And why is “eon” so short?
And why isn’t “monosyllabic” monosyllabic?
Why is there no such thing as a brief circuit?
Why is phonetic not spelled phonetically?
Why is the acronym for “World Wide Web” three times as long as the phrase itself?
Because it symbolizes all the shortcomings of the world. Move aside.
The word “abbreviation” can be worse in Russian : Сокращенное название (Sokrashchennoye nazvaniye)
Since they’re so close together, why are they called “apartments”?
George Carlin would be smiling after reading some of these comments :-) …. Croc Power !
The comments today are O.K.!
Sounds worth pondering.
Why isn’t ‘onomatopoeia’ onomatopoeic?
The word small is bigger than the word big.
Why is there an “s” in lisp? Why is dyslexic so hard to spell?
TLA = Three Letter AcronymETLA = Extended Three Letter Acronym
Pondering about all these words and definitions is just wasting time when we should be pondering about more serious questions…..like “Do you think they’ll ever make a sequel to ‘Harris Bueller’s Day Off’?”
This is an old joke. This strip is going the way of Dennis the Menace and Wizard of Id.
Oh, this is the kind of strip I live for!!!!
Wise ass on the hill…has run out of thoughts to ponder….
I’m beginning to think there is no meaning of life.
Or why phonetics isn’t.
My favorite is driveway parkway
If the wise ass never moves from that spot, well… I was just wondering… What’s that hill made of?
Why do we drive on parkways and park on driveways? Why does the word lisp have an s in it? Life is full of conundrums.
But ugly is an ugly word and cute is a cute word. Or maybe I’m thinking too much.
Stealing from Gyco commercials are you now Pastis?
Wise Ass is not so wise after all.
What’s another word for thesaurus. I’ll have to look that in my thesaurus.
I don’t like to see drivers drive with their parking lights on. I wonder if they park with their driving lights on?
Today’s strip should be titled, “I have the best words.”
We can agree there are odd thoughts now coming through to us being by ourselves a lot more than usual.
For the same reason that only lawyers will submit a 400 page document and call it a “brief.”
It’s short for abbrevamiationallyobstinct.
Never use a long word when a diminutive word will work.
Meaning? Purpose? Spelling? Ha, I say.
Or why does “cleave” mean to join AND to separate?…
That “hill” reminds me of our outhouse in the winter
The word ’’Abbreviation’’ is long, but what it means is a short* form
Why isn’t phonetics spelled the way it sounds?
those all sound like conundrums
Tomorrow we take on the question; Why does the word ‘lisp’ have an ess in it?
Why isn’t ‘phonetically’ spelled the way it sounds?
Wow! So many likes today. The strip is okay but the comments are hilarious.
The Wise Ass needs a higher hill on which to contemplate abbreviation, so that Rat will quit pestering him. —One too high for Rat to climb….
I think the wise ass should dig a hole and put a sign by it that clearly identifies it as his hole.
For that matter, why is the word “short” longer than the word “long”?
Love all the witty comments today. Laugh out loud.
Thinking about it, a lot of the words for things that are small seem to be long.
And speaking of abbreviations, it’s odd that “WWW” has three times as many syllables as “world-wide web”.
I’m an editor and that’s going to bother me for a month.
Why isn’t “phonetic” spelled with an F?
The return of Wise Ass.
