As with the first literary school of fish, there is no mystery about the point or the kind of joke, but we can exercise our memory and sense of Arizona’s 11th largest city by trying to pinpoint the writer in each case and the reason for the icon.

First appearance of Crabgrass at CIDU.
Can’t remember, has this really not been used? It’s so good!
And a special late-for-Thanksgiving quasi-synchro section of Pilgrim-hat-buckle jokes!

So it’s a Ha*Ha more than a LOL?
You can count on Horace for a technicality!
There are lots of comics about pandemic accommodations and inconveniences, some quite good and some not so much. This one struck our funny bone as charming and gentle. (Despite the swordplay!)
Good turnaround joke contributed by Anon.
Wait, are they confederates? Or is the pin guy just horning in?
Both from Andréa.
A Halloween left-behind LOL.
In case you didn’t know, the “Nick and Zuzu” comic panels run as accompaniment to an advice column by Carolyn Hax. Sometimes they really depend on the writing and are totally CIDU without it. Other times, the comic is quite independent of the column which sparked it; and that is the case here. And the cartoons appear elsewhere, where the column is not available or even mentioned, such as GoComics.
But in case you are interested: https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/advice/carolyn-hax-how-to-tell-dad-that-you-want-to-dispense-with-the-unpleasantries/2020/11/05/f85f3d90-1578-11eb-bc10-40b25382f1be_story.html
You can always count on Gargle Seawater for some Oy content!
Here is Baldo (1) using an embattled English expression in its traditional form, not the disputed more-modern form, and (2) making a pun out of it.
For comparison, for those who can make use of it, also providing the Spanish version. The pun doesn’t seem to have been attempted here.
Full-on pun for *Dingbats*.
The sender says: “It’s been over 40 years since Edith Bunker died.
Has anyone used the word ‘dingbat’ as an insult since then?” Probably not, and it may take a geezer to recall it. The *word* of course remains familiar to font-heads.
Dark side of The Horse so often breaks new frontiers in cartoon-physics! And we usually call that LOL, but here there is wordplay on “airplane mode” that should qualify for an OY.
Take a wild guess at why she’s in the dark and taking a shot.
