WTF is the Arlo Page?

The Arlo Page — which is named after Arlo Guthrie, as many of you know — is where I park comics that meet the criteria for the CIDU site (CIDUs, LOLs, whatever), but are too iffy for the front page because of language or sexual content. Or because there’s some element that parents really might not want to explain to their kids. It’s a judgment call, and I err on the side of caution.

The Arlo Award goes to a cartoonist who sneaks something blatantly inappropriate past the syndicate’s censors. Obviously this doesn’t apply to Internet-only or self-published comics.

Please note that nothing will appear here without a link from the main site.

Unless I forget.

Is anybody really going to wear this?

And if they do…

Recently a couple was thrown out of a Wal-Mart for wearing Swastika face masks. How would retail stores handle something like this?

For the record, Facebook has no problem with Swastikas, but they wouldn’t allow this (though if she were a photo-realistic painting, that would be okay)
