Bucket Drunk Alien Bats

Bizarro is brought to you today by Making Your Parents Proud.

I got a few emails about this cartoon from people who did not understand it. At least one admitted to not knowing what the word “reverb” means, so maybe that’s it. Reverb is the echo you hear on song recordings sometimes, so the lady is supposedly wearing a bucket on her head because she likes the echo it provides. Not a very good answer, as noted by the good doctor. (more…)

Fur Balls and Beaks

I used to play a lot of tennis so this idea was fun for me. I haven’t played in about ten years now, not because I got too old but because that was when I moved to NYC and I didn’t know anyone there who played. Now I’m in LA and still don’t know anyone who plays tennis but I’m also too busy to fit it into my schedule. Why am I telling you all this? I have no idea. Because this cartoon is about tennis and it reminded me that I used to like to play, I guess. Is this a boring post? I have also had several cats in my day. (more…)

Welcome to my blog. If you’ve never been here before, I hope you enjoy poking around a bit. I post about three times a week and comment (often humorously) on my various efforts. If you’re a regular to this blog, skip the previous three sentences and move on. (more…)

Tweeting Feet Drag Parrot

Bizarro is brought to you today by Crack Repair.

When I was a kid, I always watched the Olympics and dreamed of one day competing in them. I’ve always been a pretty good athlete and was the fastest runner of anyone I knew, so I figured if I just kept practicing, someday I’d have a gold medal. Life isn’t that simple, of course, and as I got older, I became distracted by other endeavors that I found more satisfying like art, music, theater, girls, beer. I doubt I’ll even have time this year to watch much of the Olympics but so be it. The synchronized tweeting event is kind of dull anyway. (more…)

Man (woman and undecided), it’s been a busy week at Bizarro International Headquarters. So much going on that I can barely keep up. Last weekend I was at the San Diego Comic Con, which if you like 10 square miles of unnavigable crowds of nerds and wackos is where you ought to be. It’s gotten so out of hand that it’s beginning to make Burning Man look like a Republican convention. (more…)

Bizarro is brought to you by The Politics of Fear.

I wanted to publish this cartoon closer to July 4 because it would be in keeping with the theme of the holiday but it didn’t come to me until too late. Still, the 15th isn’t so bad and the constitution wasn’t signed on the 4th anyway (that was the Declaration of Independence), so who cares? (more…)

I put out a book of Bizarro pirate cartoons a couple years ago––do you have it? If not, that may be the nagging sense of emptiness that you’ve been feeling lately. Whatever the case, this cartoon is not in that book because it is new and publishers will not publish something that does not yet exist at the time of printing. Moreover, this one is a collaboration with my known associate, Wayno. You may wonder what Wayno has to say about this gag. If so, you can find out here. I think it’s lots of fun. (more…)

For me, the fun of this gag is in the drawing. It’s a simple turn-of-a-popular-phrase kind of joke, but drawing the lions and their post-modern house was a kick. I love drawing anthropomorphized animals but don’t often do it. If you want to delve into deeper philosophical meanings, you can also say that this cartoon illustrates how far from nature we have drifted as a species. A good example of this kind of thinking is the way we often frame teenage sexuality in a moral context of “good” and “evil.” If you throw out the human construct of “morals” and just notice that teenagers are mammals and their bodies are driven to reproduce, the discussion is much simpler. When my daughters were growing up, I always discussed sexuality in biological terms and instead of telling them it was “wrong” to go too far too young, I explained the psychological effects of sexual relationships and how it can make life much more complicated and unpleasant when it doesn’t go well (and the first few almost never do). As well as the obvious discussion about how disruptive STDs and teen pregnancy can be. Then I  left the decision to them. Both of them had relatively sane relationships with boys as a result. (Or at least, I’m happy to take the credit.)  I’ve long thought that the farther away from nature you get, the harder it is to make sense of life. Not that I live in a teepee in the woods. (more…)

Tiny Pad Tweet

Bizarro is brought to you today by Cranky Bikers.

I got an email today from a graphic designer whose name is “Klein”. Since he works with graphics, is a master of keyboard shortcuts, and wears nothing but a tanktop-T and boxer shorts, he felt a special kinship to this cartoon. I love that no matter how randomly I choose a name for a cartoon, I often hear from readers of the same name in similar circumstances. Sometimes it has been uncannily similar. If I could remember a couple of instances, it would have made this paragraph worth reading. (more…)

It’s been a quiet week in Lake Wobegon, but I don’t live in Lake Wobegon and that’s one reason why I haven’t posted on this blog all week. I live in LA and it’s been busy here. Since I last posted, Rodney King died. I rioted for three days but no one noticed. After that, Jerry Sandusky was found guilty on 45 of the 48 charges he was on trial. YES! I knew that charge 47 was bogus! When I heard the verdict, I considered rioting again, just for good measure, but I was still tired from the Rodney King thing. (more…)
