Two Thursday cartoons

Words words words. Ruthie in One Big Happy is confounded by sandy, and Mother Goose and Grimm gives us a howling pun on Transcendental Meditation:

(#1)

(#2)

In #1, Ruthie’s grandfather gums things up by introducing the word sabulous, which Ruthie of course treats as a portmanteau of fabulous and Sabbath. And then she runs aground on the common noun sandy and the proper name Sandy.

Meanwhile, #2 has a groaning play on Trancendental Meditation: transit dental meditation ‘meditation on dental matters while on public transit’.

    Thinking of the old joke about why doesn’t the dentist give the Maharishi novocaine? – Because he wants to transcend dental medication.
