Bizarro is brought to you today by But I’m Vegan.
Happy early April, Jazz Pickles. I’ve been as busy as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs lately as I plan to escape Bizarro International Headquarters next week for a bit of time off. Yes, even super-human cartoonists need time off from comedy from time to time, so I’ll be going where nothing is ever funny: Oklahoma.
If that news makes you wonder if this might be a good time to break into my Los Angeles mansion, think again. I’ve got a full-time security team staying here while I’m away, led by my dog, Jemima. She’ll chew up your shoes while you’re not looking and you’ll be sorry you ever broke in. Plus, I have nothing worth stealing other than half (or less) of a bottle of good scotch.
My Tuesday cartoon is a collaboration with the talented illustrator, cartoonist, and my known associate, Wayno of Pittsburgh. He waxes philosophical about this gag on his blog here.
My Wednesday gag (Hey! That’s today!) is not about philosophy, but is about the modern technological problems we humans face every day.
BIZOMBIES: In my archival gems section today, I’m posting a cartoon from election time in 2004. This is, to date, the only cartoon I’ve ever done that got me canceled in a given newspaper. You may not be surprised to find out that the newspaper that took such a bold move was one in Ft. Hood, Texas. It’s a military town which pops up in the national news from time to time, and did again last week.
