Am I just not the audience? I don't get it.
Giraffe and cat on bench, two birds.
One bird wistfully observes that the location is peaceful.
Is that just it? Is the bird just saying that, and we just enjoy the scenery? What's the point?
The joke is that the man made the mistake of wearing a fishbowl for a hat in the Heathcliff household.
The joke is that Heathcliff loves ham, and his ham helmet ensures that everyone knows he's particularly hungry for it.
The joke is that the mice are so used to Heathcliff's presence that they're using his breath to heat their home.
The joke here is more complex than usual; the bird on the left compliments the bird on the right's disguise, despite having no disguise of his own.
Heathcliff's mood is often exaggerated. The joke here is a representation of his current mood.
The joke is a reflection of Gallagher's opinion of morning breath, particularly the heated breath brought on by the consumption of coffee, combined with Heathcliff's trademark bad breath.
This is one of Gallagher's subtler jokes. While the birds are well within the reach of the herbivorous giraffe, they're too far away from Heathcliff to be in any danger.
Sure, I also enjoy the pure confusion and befuddlement they give me. But in trying to rationalise and understand them it feels like falling down a flight of spiral stairs.
It's just confusing and to some level perhaps indicative of a greater disease.
The joke is that Narwhals are cold creatures by nature, paired with the absurdism of such an animal being kept in such an average household.
The joke is that the new kid was such a good salesman, he managed to sell his product to someone who had no need of it.
Been up for a few days and feel like im having a total breakdown myself and heathcliff threads still put a smile one my face.
Maybe you have to be nuts to find these funny. Have I become insane?
I feel it has become relevant to post these in the thread.
