  1. Okay, so Plungerhead the Shrink is clearing junk out of Toilethead’s brain, and that junk turns out to from Tamponhead. Yawn.

  2. A therapist’s job is to help you “clear your head.” Since she’s a toilet, the therapist’s job is to do this literally. What he found was a bunch of tampons that her partner inconsiderately flushed down the toilet, instead of disposing of them properly.

  3. A psychiatrist for toilet-headed people would naturally have a plunger-head. He clears up what’s wrong with her. And then she leaves, and we see that her problems are due to her husband.

  4. The doctor secretly has feelings for his patient.

    He helps her by removing the things that hinder her from functioning normally, but at the end of the day he pines for her as he sees her get into a car driven by her boyfriend — someone who surely takes her for granted and fills her head with inappropriate things.

  5. The psychologist plumbs the depths of her psyche and removes a clog left by her husband, the way tampons clog toilets.

  6. Whoa! That’s actually funny!

    She’s going to a counselor because she has emotional issues. He he literally roots around in her psyche and extracts her problems and she’s better. Then her boyfriend drives her home and we realize the boyfriend is the source of all her problems because he emotionally mistreats. He literally fills her with stuff she can’t handle.

  7. Seems simple enough. Woman consults shrink. He unclogs her mind, clearing away her issues. But it turns out her husband is really what’s messing up her head.

  8. Nobody wants to touch this one? Understandable.

    O.K., the obvious — Toilethead Woman is being treated by a psychiatrist (Dr. Plunger). Presumably her brain is clogged up by psychoses. Dr. Plunger’s treatment is successful, and removes either the Bad Stuff or the Entire Brain (unclear which). She is pleased with the outcome.

    The less obvious:

    Toilethead Woman then happily goes off with (presumably) her significant other, Tamponhead Man (or possibly Tamponhead Woman, but I think the driver is supposed to be male). My understanding is that tampons generally are not always safely flushible, but often attempts are made to flush them, sometimes causing clogs, so presumably this indicates that her mental problems were/are caused by Bad Stuff downloaded (for lack of a better term) into her brain by said partner. So likely nothing has really changed and she’ll have to be back for another session with Dr. Plunger sooner or later. If only the Bad Stuff has been removed, it will likely be replaced; if her entire brain has been removed, she will not notice what the source of her problem (her partner) really is.

    Or maybe the artist just gets off on drawing toilet-plunger interaction. I don’t judge.

  9. I agree with the explanations. I just wanted to add that “head” is a nautical term for “toilet” (or “bathroom”). It seems to fit well with the action in this comic.

  10. If nothing else, this particular page is an interesting experiment in seeing what people will post when they think that nobody else has any clue how to explain the cartoon.

    In other words: What will people post when given the chance to make the first post?

  11. I just noticed that the boyfriend/husband in the car is impatiently looking at his watch, as if to say in irritation, “What took you so long in there?”

  12. “My understanding is that tampons generally are not always safely flushible,”

    Having used said product for, sigh…many years, my understanding is that tampons are flushable, pads are not. Had significant other been a box of maxi pads this would all make sense to me. One of the major selling points of a tampon is the ability to flush them and move on with your life of flipping off of diving boards and running through meadows in white shorts.

  13. Is my comment in moderation because I kept it too real about tampons? LOL Actually I didn’t. Just trying to draw your attention to my moderated comment, Bill.

  14. It reminds me of the (really, really) old days of CIDU, when there was no commenting system. Bill would put the cartoons up, you would e-mail him your explanations, and he would select the best ones to show. The “new” system is better in most ways, but there are aspect of the old system that were nice, too. Now sometimes someone just gives the clearly correct explanation in the first comment, and you don’t get the diversity of opinions you would with the old system.

  15. @ Bill – Any chance you could install the same WordPress template used by the main CIDU page here for the Arlo Page as well?

  16. Do you mean a fee for WordPress, or a fee for the privilege of using the template?
    P.S. Either way, this makes me feel like a freeloader. You got rid of the ads on the old site, so perhaps it’s time to launch a CIDU Kickstarter or Patreon project, at least to cover the running costs.

  17. Both, in a way: it’s a monthly hosting fee to WordPress– but one perk of paying instead of hosting for free is a larger selection of templates.

    It’s a fairly small monthly charge, though, not worth anybody feeling guilty over.

  18. I’m afraid you really should not flush tampons down the toilet (just google “flushing tampons” for various explanations why. Basically it’s bad for the pipes, and bad for the environment.) Much like wet wipes, even ones marketed as “flushable” aren’t, and they keep causing huge awful clogs in the sewers because people keep flushing them.
