Ed Arno, "My teaching machine hates me!" (L) —"The recipe calls for a dash. How many metric dashes is that?" (R)

Ed Arno, "Oh, just the usual, Ed—erosion of moral fibre, technological glut, the decline of passion, the dehumanization of the self. What have you been thinking about today?" (L) — "No, dammit, Hawkins. I will not agree to disagree." (R)
The drawing on the left missing its caption also appeared in yesterday's blog post.
