Three for today

Three cartoons for today: a Dilbert, a Bizarro, and a Mother Goose and Grimm:

(#1)

(#2)

(#3)

#1 shows the pointy-headed boss failing to respect the Gricean maxim of Quantity, by saying considerably less than what’s required in the context (“We need it for various things, and so on”); the suggestion is that the boss simply has no idea what’s required in the context, or is unable to supply a clear and informative answer,

#2 shows a combination of two prominent images from popular culture, both very frequently parodied: the couple from Grant Wood’s American Gothic, and Batman, with a pun on Gothic / Gotham, Gotham City being the locale of Batman.

Finally, in #3, another pun (mildly off-color) on plucked ‘with feathers removed’ vs. metaphorical fucked ‘ruined’.
