Well, a personal spongechronicity, anyway:

I read this comic (which I did not at all understand) while I was in Manhattan today, having gone in to buy tickets for my wife and I, our sons and their girlfriends to see Spongebob Squarepants the Musical.

TicketMaster was charging almost $80 in fees for six tickets, by the way: How is this not considered scalping? We’re not talking about the premium they charge for had-to-get tickets (even though they’re sometimes the reason tickets are hard to find), which is a separate matter: these are literally the same tickets I was able to buy at the box office.

Anyway, y’all are here for the comic, not to hear me rant about Ticketmaster:


Added 10 minutes later:

Okay, now it’s getting weird (even though I suspect those are supposed to be pieces of Swiss cheese rather than little Spongebobs: I really don’t have a clue what the Off the Mark is all about either, so I guess we get another bonus CIDU this evening)

You’d think it would be easy to come up with a good Beatles-related subject line, but it’s just not happening.

Okay, not quite Geezer material because, you know, the Beatles. And not quite synchronicity (Andréa sent them to me as “Synchronicity?”).

But while I see what Mr. Rubin was getting at in the first one, I’m not really clear what the joke is. And the Dogs of C-Kennel has me completely stumped.
