I guess in a sense it’s pointless to repeat this reminder again, but… just now I happened to check an old mailing address and saw a bunch of CIDU mail. Some of the newest being along the lines of “Hey, did you know the site is down?”
Yes, I’m perpetually behind on responding to e-mail — but rarely several years behind.
I’m just mentioning this for those of you who’ve been wondering “I asked Bill about a comic at the end of 2014: is he still thinking about it???”
So the reminder itself:
Regardless of whatever other e-mail addresses you have for me, please use only this one
for submissions or any other CIDU-related matters (including problems or questions about the site; Random Comments is an open forum, and not the best way to reach me)
Benjamin Cardozo was a justice on the United States Supreme Court. He even has a law school named after him.
That said, what the hell is he talking about?
Strand, in New York City, is an old and world-famous bookstore.
They are also run by the semi-literate, which is not a good… sign.
Mitch: These two giggles aren’t really a case of synchronicity, as the Last Kiss was from a couple days earlier, and come to think of it these aren’t really doing the same joke just a thematic element in common.
Nonetheless, I saw them and said “Hey, that’s the same idea as…”
- I hope we’re supposed to infer that Holly means credit card bills simply don’t have to be paid until next month, not that she thinks having a credit card means you don’t need money at all. That’s what I thought when I was three, but of course comic strip children can be really, really stupid.
- I wonder whether Val bought the book using cash.
Not only is it “Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen” now, but they dropped the apostrophe in Popeye’s.
In a time when people are adding extraneous apostrophes before every “s” in sight, these people are taking illiteracy in a different direction by omitting the apostrophe where every first-grader knows it belongs.
Maybe somebody here can figure this out…
My wife phoned me yesterday; and instead of a default ring, I heard… well, the wrong kind of Ring. I heard “Ride of the Valkyries.”
Which would be fine, except I never set that as the ring tone for calls from my wife’s phone. And I don’t have that music in my phone. Anywhere.
Nonetheless… Ride of the Valkyries
The next time she called me, I heard the usual default ring tone — so I have no idea what happened earlier. The most logical hypothesis at this moment is that this wasn’t a ring tone at all: at the very moment she called me, an army of Valkyries just happened to be flying past.
(She later decided, by the way, that she wants that music to be her ring tone on my phone — specifically, the Elmer Fudd cover version)
Or, since you’re on your phone anyway, type “TYTY” into the browser and get the answer in 4.5 seconds.
