Our CIDU reserves are running dangerously low. We have a few posts scheduled for this week, although most are not “genuine” CIDUs. Please send in any spare CIDUs that you have laying around the house.
From Andréa, for whom it was also an Oy, and from Findus.
Also from Andréa
Also from mitch4, who comments that it goes with the classic joke punch line: “We needed the eggs”!
From CaroZ, who says “I believe I am using the LOL doctrine correctly.” We think so, but would remark every doctrine needs wiggle room.
This is true, but where’s the joke? If Loretta was insulting Leroy, I would understand this as a standard Lockhorn comic, and not needing anything additional. But this doesn’t seem mean, so much as a basic statement of fact. If anything, it’s a little reassuring.
Is the waiter making a smart or a nasty suggestion?
(Even granting the presupposition that people would love to have some Limburger but normally refrain from concern about offensive breath.)
1) Now is the chance, as customers are masked and will be protected from others noticing their bad breath the rest of the day. So the waiter is making a good suggestion.
OR 2) But actually he is leading them on, knowing that a masked person will be smelling their own breath all day. So he is nasty and taking out some revenge on customers.
Some oddities come with having multiple editors. One of the editors (mitch4) says this is a “semi-CIDU Geezer.” The other one (Winter Wallaby) found this a CIDU that made him LOL anyway. So it gets all the tags.
