Bizarro is brought to you today by Party Pope!

I’ve been out of town for a few days, hence being so far behind on blogging. I’ve missed my Bizarro Jazz Pickles and hope you missed me, too.  The Sunday comic above is the first one I can say was completely influenced by my new digs in Los Angeles. California has micro-climates-a-plenty and it is sometimes almost as weird as this drawing. This one appeared in papers on April Fools’ Day. Can you spot the April Fools’ joke that I included in this cartoon? You’ll have to blow it up to see it, I suspect. Only truly observant Jazz Pickles have much of a chance. (more…)

Hell on Earth in a Can

Bizarro is brought to you today by Wheel of Fortune Reject.

Here at Bizarro Headquarters, CHNW and I have had day after week after month of new cans of worms. We were in LA on business about six weeks ago and she got a phone call from Florida saying her (previously completely healthy) dad had just arrived at the hospital in an ambulance and might not survive. (He’d gotten a wicked infection that he mistook for muscular backache and didn’t treat until it reached his brain and rendered him unconscious!) I had to stay in LA for the week to make my meetings, but she jumped the next plane and rushed to his side. I had to return to NYC to get back to my deadline schedule and was unable to join her. One complication led to another for the next six weeks and she just got home yesterday. I’m happy to say that pop-in-law is fine and will be going home any day now. But man, what a month and a half it has been! More worms than we knew what to do with and a truckload of cans for recycling. (more…)

Uranus in Your…

Bizarro is brought to you today by Freaky Crab Hand.

Why do I find static electricity jokes funny? I think that perhaps it is because when I was in grade school, my dad was in a meeting at work and felt something in the sleeve of his suit jacket, reached in a pulled out a baby sock which he then quickly tucked into a pocket so his colleagues would not see it. I remember him and my mother laughing about this when he got home and it stuck with me. I hope you enjoyed this cute story about my childhood. (more…)
