  1. This cartoon is a better illustration of the Friday Funnies than it is of what it purports to be.

  2. If you drop acid and stare at it for 20 min., the meaning will become very very clear.

  3. boo. D+ reversion to the mean…

  4. Come on guys. It’s still better than Marmaduke, so I give it a passing grade. (Although it’s hard to imagine what would fail that standard: I’m defining dumb down.)

  5. It’s funnier without the caption.
    D-

  6. The driver should have a name tag that says, “Unions”.

  7. My Friday Funny was watching Jon Stewart tear Jim Cramer a new one last night.

  8. Untermensch, cancer and AIDS both suck. Which one gets the passing grade?

  9. My Friday Funny was Syracuse beating UConn in 6 OT’s, game took so long it ended on Friday.

  10. All of the Friday Funnies comments are always the same. Now that’s funny!

  11. Hmmm…not bad, really. And as Untermensch points out way funnier than Marmaduke. And as a corollary* to what Bingo said, like this thread, Marmaduke is an exercise in dreadful repetition.

    *mathematicians, please don’t kill me. I’m trying.

  12. (Although it’s hard to imagine what would fail that standard: I’m defining dumb down.)

    Anything that fails the Marmaduke standard is technically a war crime.

  13. *mathematicians, please don’t kill me. I’m trying.

    We use corollaries in Philosophy too, so you’re safe.

  14. Anything that fails the Marmaduke standard is technically a war crime.

    Coming from a soldier in a war zone, that’s…harsh.

  15. Haiku day today
    Show me what you got, bitches!
    Sorry, off topic

  16. There is no topic
    More important, more vital
    Than Friday haiku

  17. Anything that fails the Marmaduke standard is technically a war crime.

    Best description of Cathy I’ve ever heard.

  18. Oh Cathy Guisewite
    Why do you hate me so much
    You are comic whore

  19. Statement is half true:
    It is actually Friday.

  22. Marmaduke, i heard

    (thanks, Achewood.)

  23. You have it wrong, dude
    Clifford is the big and red
    That dog must poop huge

  24. Fat Cathy: “AACK, AACK!”
    “The bikini is too small!”
    Irving: “Lose weight, sow.”

  25. Dog guano exports
    Major economic deal
    In Clifford’s hometown

  26. Clifford, Marmaduke
    These things are best left to suits
    in Washington, dude

  27. Homer Simpson shocked
    Cathy is woman, he asks?
    To be honest, who knows?

  28. Lecherous Pinkley
    Cathy’s atrocious boss
    The only one I like

  29. giant piles of shit

    the sound of GM dying

    no boo hoo from me

  30. Cathy? A woman?
    Could have fooled me… Women should
    not be shaped like tubes

  31. Cathy Guisewite sucks
    Got Emmy in ’87
    Is Emmy worthless?

  32. naughty marmaduke

    cathy gets some puppy love

    go marmaduke go

  33. What’s really funny is how right-wing market fundies cling to the same old bromides no matter what happents in the real world.

  34. Lefiti is cool
    I want to be just like him
    But my hands chafe fast

  35. Nancy Pelosi
    Plays Harry Reid of
    Barack Obama

  36. Shorter Lefiti:
    “Pay attention to me, waahhh!”
    What a fucking douche.

  37. Haiku writing fools
    ignore the master calling
    the days grow longer

  38. Way to bash our fun,
    Domoarrigato, with
    Lines cribbed from Japan

  39. Sorry to tell you
    That the date for Haiku Day
    Was In December.

  40. This has to be done:
    Uh, Domo arrigato,
    Mister Roboto

  41. Sorry to tell you
    That the date for Haiku Day
    Was In December.

  42. re: PBrooks @ 9:44

    Now that’s funny. Or am I just sick?

  43. Haha, he’s all bloody.

  44. Whatever, crimethink

  45. Libs wear Santa garb
    With July sun beating down?
    That would be silly

  46. eye of beholder

    that is where the sickness lies

    my hands remain clean

  47. crimethink says the time
    for haiku has passed but knows
    it will come again

  48. Every day can be
    Haiku Day, if you open your
    heart to it, crimethink

  49. Am I the only one that got a good chuckle out of this one? Wow…I thought it was rather entertaining…not the best but definately one that was dead on…

  50. Cindhi, hating the
    Funnies makes us forget how
    much we hate ourselves.

  51. The Friday Funny
    it doesn’t make any sense
    big fucking surprise

  52. Hey Cindhi, see,
    All commentary should be
    In haiku format

  53. Cindhi has ruined
    Our haiku day with laughter
    Now we hate on her

  54. bonus points are had
    for alluding to seasons
    as all haiku do

  55. Pedantic domo:
    “Silly gaijin, not like that!”
    Dude, it’s Friday, chill.

  56. Haiku are more fun
    when rules are followed my friend
    I am white as snow

  57. obey rules he sez

    how unlibertarian

    go sit in corner

  58. SugarFree isn’t it
    More fun to
    discuss and disect?

  59. Episiarch really?
    Shove it deep
    My lovely commentator.

  60. A cold, cold winter
    has hardened my heart, Cindhi
    now I wear only black

  61. Oh we can only
    Comment in Haiku format?
    My prose is wayward.

  62. Episiarch’s never
    really very “really,” Cindhi
    black velvet clown tears

  63. Cindhi, your meter
    is wrong; it’s five-seven-five
    I just shoved it deep?

  64. blushing maid Cindhi
    invites a chilly response
    from her secret crush

  65. Haikus are pointless
    Electrical Generator
    too long for last line

  66. tarran, five eight five?
    No rule can contain you, man
    Watch out for domo

    Haiku are more fun
    when rules are followed my friend
    I am white as snow”

    A Winner!

  68. I have no idea why it did that.

  69. Loa Tzu, goddamn
    SugarFreed a cut ‘n’ paste
    How does that happen?

  70. I take credit for
    bad links, but cut n’ paste is
    not my bailiwick

  71. I do like me some haiku
    unfortunatly
    my counting is dyslexic

  72. My gleeful heart flys
    As I lovingly and ternderly
    Tell “Ep” to shove it!

  73. Can we still call it
    joe’z law of the internets?
    Don’t summon him now.

  74. Lao Tzu’s trickery

    masterful intertube ploy

    how does he do it

  75. What the fuck Lao Tzu?
    Cindhi you wound me dearly
    You shoved so very hard

  76. Sweet SugerFree, I
    Will do my best to humor
    The gaiety here on

  77. Ah, but SugarFree
    Memetic evolution!
    “Lao Tzued,” not as fun

  78. Xeones, but “Laoed” or
    “Lao’d!” has its subtle charms, right?
    Let the crowd decide.

  79. Wounded Episiarch
    Wouldn’t deservingly so,
    But call a gentle truce

  80. Friday Funnies suck.
    In other news, babies are
    Reportedly cute.

  81. Cindhi’s desire to
    Violate Epi’s anus
    Is hilarious

  82. If only gentle
    Had been your approach Cindhi
    My ass wouldn’t hurt

  83. Just face it Epi
    You actually like Cindhi’s
    violation, whore

  84. you think ass hurts now

    bipartisanship will come

    much more pain for all

  85. Sex and violence
    Have no place in Haiku, friends
    Instead welcome spring

  86. fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck
    fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck
    fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck

  87. Lao Tzu’s point was that
    this has all happened before,
    will happen again.

  88. Unloved Lefiti.
    Overinflated ego.
    That’s embarrassing.

  89. Matt Welch was so wrong
    In his tweet the other day.
    This thread is the wins.

  90. Barack Obama
    The Negro has gone quite mad
    “Hope” is shit on bread

  91. My new Reason vow:
    No more profanities here;
    Ah, fuck that cunt shit

  92. I drink way too much
    Then I come to haiku thread
    and compose haiku

  93. Friday Funnies scrawl
    Worth one hundred responses?
    Ha! Haiku fun time.

  94. Like an oak in a fantasy.

    The yellow
    sand appears
    in my mind
    with a rumbling
    and delicate
    look; you call
    me near a
    sylvan hedge,
    and everything
    shines like a
    taciturn wind.
