The Wall Street Journal may not have a comics page, but it does have a daily comic called Pepper…and Salt, as well as a daily A-HED article that is usually meant to be comical or at least light. NY Times has no sense of humor.
Feeding a fed horse isn’t just pointless — it is extremely harmful to the horse because it will eat what you put in front of it. It’s really not the same meaning.
1) If you always close the lid, then it looks neater and both men and women lift something to use the toilet. 2) Yes, the patent shows the TP going over, but if you have cats or kids, you put it under. The reason being that when they paw at the front of it to make it spin, it won’t unroll if it is under. (Cats and young children tend to pull down when they bat the roll, as it’s easier.)
I have a memory of a Born Loser strip from about 20 years ago where he gets vanity plates, but picks 3 random numbers and 3 random letters. Does that ring a bell for anyone?
Trump disgusts me, too, but hiding a Go F Yourself message in the comics is sophomoric.
I used to work in a place where if you wanted access to the ticketing system, you had to put in a ticket. Not kidding.
And, this is an adorable strip. I love panel 7 where Bucky is nuzzling the can.
I went to college in upstate NY in the 90’s and there was actually someone making an impassioned plea for the city of Fishkill to rename itself to something “kinder” because they thought it was cruel to celebrate killing fish. Of course, they didn’t bother to understand the origin of the name before starting up their cause. Passionately uninformed.
The pain level is dependent on a combination of the placement of your teeth and the skill of your oral surgeon. I had three removed at once, took pain killers that day, and was fine the next.
I am surprised how many people are not familiar with these expressions. I am not exactly a pop culture person (I don’t even have a TV and don’t read entertainment magazines), but even I have heard them. “You do you” means you do what suits you and worry about yourself and I’ll do what suits me and worry about myself and don’t judge me for my choices. (In the context of the strip, it is saying I’ll be a criminal and if the judge wants to be a law abiding citizen, that’s his business and he shouldn’t judge me.) “Stay in your lane” means mind your own business. I hope that helps all the people asking the questions.
