Fido's Friday Funday, September 9
So here we are in another week, on another Friday, and the "Dog Days" as they're called in the U.S. have not left us quite yet. For those who aren't up on American slang, dog days usually refer to the hot and humid days of summer, which is when most of us -- dogs included -- lie around and do nothing. And we're due for another round of HOT air and high temps, even though it's September!
So, for those readers who are still in summer mode -- or those who are moving towards summer -- I offer you these cartoons for your amusement. And if it's hot where you are, laugh gently.
Yes, I am old enough to remember these. Are you?
This comic strip appears in many newspapers in the U.S., and it's one of my favorites. I love the alternate meanings for the acronyms we often take for granted!
Now can we find something else to argue about, please?
And for those cat-loving readers:
And saving the BEST for last -- from James Saelzer!
Which one made you laugh the most?
Many of these funnies come from Facebook pages that you can access any time you're in need of a few more good laughs. My favorites are Single Dad Laughing, I am not a grammar cop, Language Cranks Redux, and Tannuzzo Copywriting.
