* LateToThePunchline: One comic strip has Bongo hearing his friend tell a dirty joke that gets everyone laughing.[[note]]The joke is as follows: "A woman buys a dog, and for some reason, she names is Freeshow. Then one day, she takes off all her clothes and gets into the shower, but the dog jumps out the window, and she jumps out of the shower to run after him, still naked, yelling "[[{{Pun}} Freeshow! Freeshow!]]"[[/note]] It isn't until he's gone home, sat on his stoop, eaten dinner, and laid down to go to sleep that he bursts out laughing, presumably "getting it."
