Zippy on figures of speech

April 7, 2014

Today’s Zippy:

 

 

Zippy runs through an inventory of figures of speech. Then there’s the language play: oxymoron / moron, and (in the title) idiomatic pressing ‘urgent’ vs.one of the literal senses of pressing (Zippy is ironing clothes).

Cheap pun

April 6, 2014

Just in: a Mother Goose and Grimm with a cheap (but enjoyable) pun:

 

Justin Bieber / Beaver. The pun is straightforward, but this is another case where you need a lot of sociocultural knowledge, in particular about Justin Bieber.

Another Pearls elaborate pun

Pig sets up an elaborate pun (on “Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn’s early light?”) and Rat confronts the cartoonist.
