Adult Humor


Today’s classic A&J is from 1997. In my earlier work, prior to this period, Arlo & Janis jokes were very dependent on dialog. In the early 90s, I began to stretch my range and do more humor that relied upon the visual. I still couldn’t draw all that well, but I was getting a lot better. Back to the present: you may remember a couple of months ago, when updates were few and far between, I said I was going to redouble my efforts here going into fall. Well, I’m trying! Last week was fun; let’s see what we can get into this week.

  1. Good morning Villagers….

    Jackie….don’t make me come out there and strap you down in bed!!! Lady, you are pushing it. Stop it…now!!!

    later with more on my past weekend.

  2. Love today’s current strip. That is what Dickens the Adventure Dog does. He wants to know you would eat it too.

    I had the tee shirt, “Growing older but not up.”

  3. Uh oh, just realized Dickens and I are resting on a bed covered in unpacked clothes and Ghost’s side is not accessible. Uh oh. He will be here in a couple hours so I still have time to clear if I don’t fall asleep like Dickens has.

    And shower rod is sagging with hung up stuff. I need a huge walk in closet.

  4. Jackie:

    “What did everyone do today that kept them occupied?”

    Just got home from work, doctor’s office, library, now it’s time for a short nap, then off to a free dinner while learning about neuropathy stuff, then to an astronomy lecture followed by a star party.

    So, nothing much.

  5. Just made homemade cornbread with fresh corn cut into it, sweet red peppers and cheese.
    Big Arlo pot of made from scratch vegetable beef soup, homemade cole slaw.

    No dessert.

  6. Jackie:

    My wife and visited our local Social Security office and enrolling her in Medicare. My turn comes in February.

    Another milestone.

    PS: I’m glad we never switched to the metric system. “Kilometerstone” just doesn’t have the right ring. “1.60934kilometersstone” is even worse.

  7. Jimmy:

    You know drawing far than I do, but I see nothing wrong or deficient in today’s retro strip. I especially like the work with the eyes and body posture.

  8. My tenants have moved out and the house will have to be redone from floor to ceiling. They did leave a gift for me. It’s a live python, which is illegal to own in Florida. I’m trying to get someone from the state to come out and remove it. If they don’t I’ll have to kill it myself and I’m not crazy about the idea.

  9. Jerry: How big is this python? You don’t want it to mistake your neck for a tree. When Ged was only 5′ long, Elaine and I never handled him unaccompanied. Peace,

  10. Rick in Shermantown, one of my favorite authors of modern science fiction is fond of using the phrase meterstick instead of yardstick. Probably on the assumption that most of the world does not use the English-based system of measurements and that if mass colonization of space occurs we will all have to go metric.

  11. I was reminded a few days ago of an outdated observation. It is not strictly accurate, but a fun observation. There are two kinds of countries in the world: those smart enough to use the metric system, and those who have flags on the moon.

  12. Jerry, was that the same tenant that had 2 small children? I was feeling for you having to evict them, but if they have trashed the place then I really feel for you.

    The metric system debate is a lot like the Designated Hitter rule, Daylight Saving time debates about the best car. Everyone has an opinion and no one ever changes their mind. I am proud that the first and last men on the Moon, both who have passed to the heavens, were graduates of my ala mater, Purdue.

  13. Many of the elongated measuring devices met in science labs are, indeed, a meter long. Hence, “meterstick” is accurate for them.

  14. It is in a big glass tank and I actually have not seen the tail end of it. I think that it may be 5-6 feet long so it isn’t big, but it is illegal and it is definitely a python. I had someone who knows look at it and he agrees. Yes they are the people with two small boys. It has a cover over the tank and I have watched it trying to push the cover up and get out. Keep in mind that I do not own a single gun and I had the situation well in hand as I entered the house today. Oh, and I had a cop look at it yesterday and he was taking precautions also. It just needs to be removed and I am trying to get in touch with the proper authorities. I have left messages and they do not return my calls. If I do not hear from them tomorrow I will move up the chain of command until I get someone on the ball.
