Clones, Babies, Honey, Mom


Bizarro is brought to you today by How To Treat Heat Prostration.

I have been remiss in my blogging responsibilities of late. Spending a week one block from Hell will do that to a person. I was in Texas and Oklahoma visiting family and experienced the daily 100+ degrees of what is being called “the worst heat wave in the history of this area this month.” Oklahoma isn’t actually Hell, but you can easily walk to it from there. Daily highs averaged around 106, the high temperature I experienced was 111 degrees on Saturday. At midnight, when the city was quiet and temps are still in the high 90s, you could hear Satan laughing as he watched reruns of Two and a Half Men. It was chilling, but not in a way that made it any cooler.

Local politicians are making a big deal out of telling people to “pray for rain” and lower temps. It’s funny to me that Republicans claim to have a monopoly on friendship with “God” but it’s the red states that god smites with the worst weather. The Texas/Oklahoma heat wave/drought this year, multiple hurricanes in Florida, Katrina in Louisiana. I’d revisit that relationship if I were them. Or pick up a science book and find out what actually causes weather.

Now that I’m back in NYC, I’ll be blogging more often. These four cartoons will get us caught up to date. Though a parent is always reticent to admit a favorite among their children, my favorite among this group is probably the dyslexia joke because I like cartoons that you have to think about for a few seconds. I expected to get some complaints from sufferers of dsyleixa, or, more likely, the parents of children with dyslexia. I usually do in these cases, but not so far. Fingers crossed.

Oh, I almost forgot. My dad told me about a new state law that is as dumb as we have come to expect from Oklahoma politicians: drivers under the age of 18 are forbidden from texting while driving. But not over 18. Sure. Makes perfect sense.

  1. Apropos of absolutely nothing, the man so bemused by the clones is exactly like an architect I worked for years ago — the stance, the posture, the facial expression, everything. Exactly.

  2. oop aidoom pue eiw ewwow (double dyslexists will get that – or people who turn their screens over)

    I seriously thought the Apple cloning product was going to be called iMeMine.

    I wonder when Oklahoma is going to make it illegal to text while delivering…

    But honestly, my favorite was the “Home, I’m Honey”, if only because when I was much younger and living alone, I’d walk in the door and throw myself into the sticky embrace of the Honey Bear Squeeze Bottle. Please don’t judge me.

  3. As a person with dyslexia, I think MOM is hysterical. I once wrote “now” as “mov”. I was making a list of things we had to do and some of them had to be done immediately so I was (trying to) “now” beside them. I couldn’t understand why my friends couldn’t understand what I was writing.

  4. day after day… FUNNY!

    dunno how you do it, but just keep doin’ it.

    HOME I’M HONEY… such a silly, throw-away gag, but the high level of artwork you put into it is inspiring.

    keep up the good work and STAY COOL!

  5. I grew up in a family of dyslexics, and it was very funny. I just emailed it to several of the dyslexics in my life and they will think it’s funny too. Or, possibly, they won’t understand why I’m laughing at the nice man’s very reasonable exclamation.

  6. The “home, I’m honey” joke made me think of a pun (maybe already done, but I hope not) : Honey, I’m homely! (insert ugly ricky ricardo, and disgusted lucy).

  7. Saw the Muppets skinny dipping in the Sunday paper…. seriously is there anyone we can call for you? Medication helped me… Ok forget I wrote. Besides that what would I do in the bathroom with out you…

    Best wishes

  8. Finally I clicked on Bizarro’s blog. Was waiting for a rainy day and so it is the rainy season here in Guatemala. “…. and other strange manifestations…” is still widely read in the land of the Maya. We have a vertical garden proving I am dis or dat lexick. Times up. I must now find Jesus with Ms. Bachmann, or with Mr. Perry. Chow, Albertus Magnus
