Bizarro is brought to you by Fossils.
If you don’t get this gag, it is doubtless because you’ve never heard of Swedish Fish, an ancient and pretty famous candy. Wisely, though they look like little red fish, the manufacturer decided to make them taste like something else. Nobody knows exactly what, though. As my known associate, Wayno of Pittsburgh (whose idea this gag was) says on his blog today, they taste “red.” He has more to say about this collaboration here.
JAZZ PICKLE JAR: Today’s elderly Bizarro cartoon from 2006 is also about fishing and that’s no coincidence. While I was writing the copy above I thought to myself, Unless I’m drunker than I think I am, this cartoon is about fish, and then I thought of another one that I’d done that also seemed to be about fish and I posted it here. Just a little insight into the complex world of professional cartooning.
