Bizarro is brought to you today by Neanderthal SuperCuts!
A reader from New Zealand wrote to me and asked me to post her favorite comic of mine from years ago. I think this cartoon may have been published in Scandinavia at some point so maybe she saw it there or in a past episode of this blog. Not sure. So here it is, in all its glory. She didn’t say why this is her favorite; perhaps this is a common pick-up line in the land of the kiwi.
Here’s Friday’s comic, and one that I’m particularly fond of. Like most people whose brain is connected to its stem, I hate TV commercials. But the Dos Equis “Most Interesting Man in the World” commercials are actually kind of funny. So here’s an amusing little spoof (that word again! LOVE it!) of those commercials entitled “The Most Interesting Bum in the World.” Please enjoy it responsibly. If you’ve not seen these commercials (because many of my readers are not living in the U.S. or don’t have TVs), here is one now.
This last cartoon proposed some art challenges. I wanted to somehow depict a house that looked normal from the outside but had such incredibly thick walls that there was no room inside. This was the best I could do with the concept. I hope it came across. It certainly is not a thigh-slapper, but not every cartoon is (or can be.) I just like to let my mind wander and draw the things that catch my imagination or amusement. Sometimes you win, sometimes you don’t.
Say what you will about this house, it would cost nothing to heat or cool.
MOTORCYCLE CRASH UPDATE SPECIAL REPORT: Thanks for everyone’s kind words. You’re sweet. People have been asking how we’re doing and I’m happy to report we are doing better. Both of us are still really sore and walking around like a couple of octogenarians after a weekend on ecstasy at Lollapalooza. CHNW is still really sore with a HUGE bruise on her hip, about the size of a watermelon and the color of a raw steak. She’s limping around pretty badly but we hope it isn’t permanent. X-rays showed no break, so she should be okay. Here is the actual doctor actually looking at her actual X-ray. I wonder if this passes as porn for docs?
Other bad news is that my mechanic says my beloved bike is totaled. It would take as much as it’s worth to rebuild it back to its former glory. The problem with a classic bike in mint condition is that you can’t just go out and replace it. I’m really depressed about that, but as they say, at least we are alive and healing. Yay and boo hoo.
