Before I get to this week’s cartoons, I’d like to tell you about this T-shirt campaign featuring one of my most popular cartoons. A portion of the proceeds benefit “Roots & Shoots,” a kid’s program at the Jane Goodall Institute. Only ONE WEEK LEFT in the campaign, then the shirt is gone for good! Thanks!Have a look now, then come back.And don’t hesitate to “like,” tweet, forward, etc. it so that other’s may find out about it, too!Bizarro is brought to you today by Church Humor?This Sunday cartoon is a long and winding road and you’ll likely need to enlarge it to get the most out of it. Do that by clicking it. On my computer, I have to click it, then reload the page it goes to before it appears. No idea why; computer voodoo, I guess. (more…)
The King of Wordplay wants to put your name in his book!
Amaze your friends. Stun your enemies. Be a part of Cliff Harris’s kickstarter campaign and help bring dirty jokes to the world!
My buddy and long-time collaborator, Cliff Harris, known to many of you Jazz Pickles as the King of Wordplay, will be publishing his first book soon. He needs some help with getting the book the national attention it deserves so he’s started a Kickstarter campaign. The book is a collection of double-meaning jokes that turn ordinary phrases into dirty jokes. You can get a sense of Cliff’s remarkable skills with word-play in the examples of Bizarro gags that he wrote over the past few years. (see below) These gags are NOT in his new book, I’m just posting them to remind you how clever he can be.
The Bizarro cartoon below has gone viral many times on various social media sites so we decided since so many people respond to its message, we’d make a T-shirt out of it. It’s for sale for two weeks only, so order one before you forget and the campaign ends!
20% of the sales goes toJane Goodall Institute‘s global youth-led community action program, Roots and Shoots. Makes a great gift for yourself or others, plus it supports teaching kids to do a better job of stewardship than we have. It’s a win/win! (more…)

Bizarro is brought to you today by Lifestyle Choices.Regarding the above cartoon, one reader left the following comment: “The idea of advocating romantic relationships between species is disgusting and exactly what the Christian Right predicted would happen if we legalized gay marriage!” Okay, that reader was me, but I wish I’d gotten that complaint because it’s funny.I’ve long called martial arts “the pajama arts” but I mean no insult by it. I find it fascinating that a barefooted person wearing pajamas can beat the crap out of someone with a baseball bat, wearing protective gear and ass-kicking boots. Or at least, that’s how it happens in the movies.This coffee gag is one that has doubtless been thought of a million times and I did a version of it way back in the early 90s myself. But it’s fun, people like it, and my job is to amuse my readers not stroke my own ego with my clever originality, so here it is. (more…)
My old San Francisco friend and genius character-comedian, Will Franken, who now lives in London, is slated to perform at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival’s most prestigious venue. He’s been there four times before, gotten rave reviews (which I believe is how he got into their best venue), but needs money to support himself while there. Unfortunately, there isn’t much money in the non-mainstream comedy he’s dedicated his life to, so he’s always living on the edge. (more…)
Bizarro is brought to you today by My New Offices!I hope you enjoy this version of the popular horror story meme wherein a traveling couple’s car breaks down and they have to ask a scary person if they can spend the night in that person’s farmhouse, castle, etc. The setup is a bit outdated now that cell phones have been invented but I suppose you could always claim there’s no reception in that area because of inherent evil or something. (Note: I put a little extra work on the reflection in the hardwood floors so please take a moment to enjoy that.)I’m sure one or more cats are actually running for president next year but I suspect that, as usual, The Man won’t let them on the ballot. This is entirely because cats cannot be bought by corporations.I have out-of-body experiences every single day, but it’s always involving other people’s bodies. Something to think about. I’ve always thought the coolest thing about porcupines is that when threatened, they can throw their quills outward from their body. Much like our “goosebumps” or “gooseflesh,” but with consequences.Yes, I know I have a bug up my ass about unnecessarily large vehicles and I’ve done a lot of cartoons about that. Here’s another one. The salesman is unnecessarily large, too, but that’s a whole other issue about the American industrialized food system. (more…)
Lately I’ve been posting some of my daily sketchbook musings on Instagram, Twitter, and FacadeBook and people have been super friendly and supportive. So I thought I’d mention that I’m selling similar kinds of images on fancy-pants sketchcards that you can own in this lifetime. Each one is completely original, unique, and one-of-a-kind (which is what “unique” means.) (more…)
Bizarro is brought to you today by A Visit To A Town In Arkansas Called Flippin.Here’s an odd bit of punctuation fun. If you’re not familiar with punctuation and have never (or rarely) used it, it’s those little dots and dashes that sometime squeeze themselves in between words or hover magically above them. In this case, the little dash after the last “E” in Siamese is called a “comma” and changes the meaning of the caption. Without it, it would not be referring to a cat, which it is, but would instead lead one to believe I had used an outdated, non-PC term for conjoined twins. Which I have not. In spite of the impression your 7th grade English teacher gave you, punctuation can be fun.Way back last Monday I published this cartoon about mice. Part of what’s funny about it is that mice don’t wear clothes or enter the medical profession. At the risk of sounding immodest, I really like this little bait-and-switch optical illusion cartoon or whatever you want to call it. I think tiny people inside of desk intercoms are funny.For the most part, critics have been kind to me over the years. One key, of course, is that critics don’t critique cartoonists very often. The worst thing about critics, however, is that they feel they MUST say something negative, even in a positive review, to avoid the impression that they are ass-kissing. Lousy ones do little more than trash people.This witch/cop cartoon is another grammar-related thing, I guess. Some people think wordplay is lowbrow but I like it under certain circumstance. If you’ve ever had a chicken bone in your throat, this cartoon needs no explanation.This cartoon came to me as I was thinking about the story of Little Red Riding Hood. In the original story, as I recall, the wolf eats the grandma, nearly eats LRRH, then a woodsman shows up, cuts open the wolf and pulls the grandma out of its stomach thus saving her life. I think this is a terrible story to tell children because it inaccurately teaches them that wolves do not chew their food. (more…)
