Hey, Jazz Pickles. Sorry for the delayed post, I’m out of town and things are wonky.

The cartoon above is a pun on the Uber phenomenon, which has revolutionized the taxi industry; cheaper and more efficient for the consumer, not a good thing for the traditional taxi folks. But that’s beside the point. The point here is a frivolous pun about Uber and goober. (Goober is slang for “peanut”.) The car is a Mercury Comet from the 70s. I like drawing vintage vehicles, especially oddball, goofy ones like this. The truck being used in this cartoon by Bunny’s Pie Repair is some kind of mid-century, British utility van that I found a picture of on the Interwebs. I don’t remember the name of it. Be sure to click on the image and embiggenate it to find the various background jokes and the secret symbols, which today number 7.

So I’ve been including a mustache in most all of my cartoons in November, as part of that Movember movement thing. Can you find the hidden mustache in this image? Here’s a hint: it’s under the doctor’s nose.

If I were an optometrist or ophthalmologist (what’s with the extra letters in that word, for chaos’ sake?) I’d have a traditional eye chart printed up in this typeface, just to screw with patients. See how that works? I’d be the “funny doctor.” But I wouldn’t stop there, I’d go ahead and fit them with glasses that make the poster clear again, then send them off to buy glasses as thick as butcher block table. Oh, the laughs we’d have. (more…)

Eyes on the Prize

In detective dramas, a little cash often improves someone’s memory. Some brainy researchers at a famous medical institute decided to test if this same principle would apply to other sorts of human functions and got some interesting results. In a study performed on 627 people with a variety of conditions from poor eyesight to dry skin to arthritis to bullet wounds to the head, they found that virtually every patient who received money claimed to feel better and asked for an ongoing cash-injection treatment program. One patient, a germaphobe, refused to take the “filthy, disease-ridden” cash, but this result was not common and classified as an anomaly. (more…)

You’ve stumbled upon this week’s roundup of Bizarro cartoons. First up is this silly little ditty by my known associate, Wayno of Pittsburgh. I love this gag and it makes me realize how much has changed in recent years. Not long ago, women worried about have a large butt. Now, with superstar-mondo-caboose celebs like J-Lo and Kim Kardashian, many women wish their butts were bigger. It’s always nice to have a role model, no matter what your body type, I suppose. Here’s what Wayno has to say about this collaboration. (more…)

Dogboy Eye Penalty

You younger Jazz Pickles who’ve not heard of anything that didn’t happen during your own lifetime may be mystified by this cartoon. It is a combination of two famous early-20th-century pop stars: Tintin and Rin Tin Tin. Tintin is a comic character from Belgium, Rin Tin Tin was a canine movie star. (more…)
