Triple play

Three varied cartoons fot the day: Rhymes With Orange, Pearls Before Swine, Dilbert.


Rhymes: a play on the idiom hear it through the grapevine.


Pearls:  the conceit is that there’s someone (Willy) who decides which words can be used.


Dilbert: taking literally the idiom my gut tells me … , as if the gut can speak.
