Blow the noodles down, bullies, blow the noodles down!

Yes, we’ve heard about the recent popularity of sea shanties on Tik-Tok and other youth social media. Also the idea of musically combining sea shanties with modern rap or pop music. 
All of that still leaves most of this Bliss cartoon unexplained!


And a bonus Sea Shanties comic:

“I am wearying of the crew’s constant repetition of the same old sea shanties.”

Arlo day at the DeGroots’ ?

Yes, the Arlo Award is still an ongoing operation! (The sequestered Arlo Page site is another matter.) The Award is for a somewhat racy or suggestive comic that by virtue of double entendre or sheer bluff can get past newspaper-oriented standards-and-practices.

This LuAnn Sunday strip was sent in by some CIDU stalwarts, most asking about the Arlo Award category, but one also counting it as a CIDU since the “spicy” reading is not unambiguous. And some have taken it to the GoComics comments thread, for that matter. Thanks to Bob Ball, Findus, Unca $crooge, and Karl.

(By the way, their names are Frank and Nancy.)
