  1. 1. He’s drawn like a Picasso. His gun and arms art a funny angle. Just like his funny face.
    2. No clue. He’s a centaur, and so in line A-L?
    3. The stamp is BACKWARDS because it was, itself, a rush job. (I’ve done that on stamps and print before, in my haste forgetting to mirror the type so it would be readable when used. )
    4. Dildo joke?
    5. It’s got to be missing a caption. The kid is a bird (the others are animals). He’s probably meant to be a wood pecker, and the kid is telling his teacher “Miss Johnson, Timmy fell down and broke his pecker.” (which HE means is “bill” what SHE hears is “penis”)
    6. The joke is that he’s being abducted by the mob. This is typically affected by hauling the guy into a car and saying “you’re getting ‘taken for a ride.’” But, this being war time, the gangsters are reduced to relying on public transit, as gas rationing prevents them from using the traditional car.
    7. She’s got her rank tattoo on her legs?
    8. Joyriders are often quite reckless. This guy was the original because he’s a caveman.
    9. The Daily Express is a conservative tabloid. Jesus would NOT want to interview with them.
    10. Seller references Hamlet (Act1 Scene 5 Unhouseled, disappointed, unaneled. No reckoning made, but sent to my account With all my imperfections on my head. Oh, horrible, oh, horrible, most horrible! If thou hast nature in thee, bear it not.) And the buyer is saying “yes, but it’s NOT just it’s head that is imperfect, the legs are also bad.” There’s a little bit of classist humor there, with the lower class horse seller being the one quoting Hamlet, and the upper class buyer being a bit obtuse.
    11. The CEO is forcing all the board members to dress up in the native garb of different countries.
    12. Biting on the neck is an act of extreme passion in lovemaking. A) the wife is quite Unattractive, B) she doesn’t really HAVE a neck anymore, and C) the best he could do now is gum her, as his dentures are on the nightstand.
    13. Again, the daily mail is a sensationalist tabloid. “miracles” and such being a classic theme for them.
