>Bizarro is brought to you today by Extra Protection.
I’m taking some time off from the real world so I’ll not be posting again until next Tuesday. I’ll miss you and will think of you daily.
In the meantime, here’s a passel to remember me by. I like the distinguished older gentlemen chatting up the young chippy on the subway. Not drawn from life, but I’m sure this has happened. Just about anything anyone can dream up happens daily somewhere in NYC.
“My eyes are up here” seems to be a popular phrase lately, with lots of shirts sporting this slogan popping up on the Interwebs. Or maybe they’ve been around for a while and I’ve not been aware of it. I’m not a boob man, myself, so maybe I’m just out of the loop.
When I was a small kid in the 60s, beehive hairdos were all the rage. Now, they still remain the rage among certain retro hipsters like Pentecostals and the wives of elderly astronauts. My early work featured almost exclusively beehive hairdos. They’re funny to draw and, let’s face it, funny to see on real people. Sorry if I’ve offended any beehive-wearing readers, it’s just my opinion. You probably think pink-streaked hair and multiple lip and nose rings are funny. And you’d be right.
And today’s elderly cartoon from the last millennium is about King Kong’s kid. Poor Prince Kong. When I drew this, I remember being careful to judge the scale between the ape and the trees so he’d look huge, but smaller than his dad.
Hope you all have a week of rainbows and butterflies. Please visit next Tuesday for another episode of “The Adventures of Whatever it is This Blog is Supposed to be About.”
