Bizarro is brought to you today by Docents.
Plenty of cartoons again today in a desperate effort to catch you up to date. This first one is from my amazingly sexy and talented colleague, Wayno! He knows how much I despise b*llshit (did I put the * in the right place?) conceptual art so I like to imagine he wrote this gag just for me. To read his story about the process, click the funny elf. Funny Elf.
Also included in that entry on Wayno’s blog is last Sunday’s cartoon about plastic surgery, shown below. Wayno had it as a single toy at the surgeon, I decided to expand the number of patients and make it a Sunday panel. “Rock’em Sock’em Robots” and “Operation” were popular toys from Wayno’s and my childhood. If you’re too young to remember these, get thee to a vintage toy demonstration facility NOW; you’re not a complete human being.
Wait, what’s this? Another comic from the inimitable Victor Rivera! He’s a little kid I’ve known for years who comes up with fun ideas from time to time. He sent me the pun “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hide-n-Seek,” and I came up with the premise. A true collaborative effort. Thanks little Vic! Good luck in Little League this summer!
This next cartoon about the unfortunate blind man reminds me of a story from my week in Tulsa. One of the amazing places I went was the Cellar Dweller Bar. It’s a bar. In a cellar. Below a building where people dwell. Yes, a bar in the basement of a very old apartment building. How is that even legal? I don’t know, but it exists and it’s dandy. Here is a picture of it’s owner, Zach, and one of the fine paintings in his Awful Art collection. The mustache in that painting is dog hair glued to the canvas. Brilliant and not the least bit conceptual. If you’re in Tulsa or planning a family vacation there soon, don’t miss the Cellar Dweller Bar! This strange thing happened to me while I was there.
Now let’s discuss the cartoon about Scooter and his affinity for calling bitches. Bad dog! Bad!
Last, but not leased (or rented) is another collaboration with Wayno. Pig tattoos are usually not very funny but this one is a scream. Scream now, but not if you’re reading this at work. Here’s Wayno’s story about this little piggy.
