Grave Rolling

The funky little Zebraphant above is one of the thousands of strange characters that populate my Bizarro coloring book. Even if you're not into coloring, you'll enjoy getting lost in the hallucinogenic visions I created. And all at an insultingly low price! Grab one here.

(To enjoy the following cartoon in an embiggened state, click any camera.)

Bizarro is brought to you today by More Stuff, Please!

One fun thing about this cartoon is that no matter what your political views, you can (and probably do) imagine the Founding Fathers are spinning in their graves over what America has become. And you’re probably right.

Some insider info from the smokey, backroom labyrinth of cartooning: Because humans show their teeth when they smile, it's really hard to draw a skull that doesn't look like it is smiling. Sure, we bare our teeth when we're angry, too, but we frame them with lips that point downward at the edges; without those, you've got smiling teeth. It's quite a conundrum.

Hey! What say we saunter down to the cartoon shack and see what Wayno has been cooking up this week?...

Later in the story, a guy with a funny way of talking and big-city clothes visits the local sawbones to get a banana split removed from his rectum. On the plus side, it can be mighty refreshing on a hot day.

Over on Wayno's (much less long-winded) weekly blog, he mentions his favorite living composer and how he figures into this cartoon. The Bizarro Jazz Pickle guidebook lists it as recommended reading.

Locally-sourced, cage-free, gluten-free, caffeine-free––our nits have all the most popular hyphenated adjectives! Come on down to Nit Pickers for our all-you-can-eat buffet!

Seriously, the baboon lice with ginger are to die for.

To get some small sense of what he's talking about, put on a bear costume and try to make a pot of coffee. It's not as easy as you'd think.

I love this cartoon but it saddens me to be reminded that humans hunted giant ducks to extinction. Of course, primitive hunters used every part of the duck: meat for food, feathers for mattresses, foot and leg as an umbrella, etc.

I wish I’d thought of this Troll Doll gimmick back when I was clean-shaven. When I think of all those years I spent deep in thought, stroking my armpits...

Perhaps he’s only saying “Eh?” in response to the doctor’s choice of words; can a person “see” tinnitus? Probably not, but you can spot "Tintinnitus" by the pointy, yellow hairdo.

Before we sign off, here's a vintage Bizarro that you might enjoy. 

Thanks for tagging along this week, Jazz Pickles. Please have a look at some of our links below and don't forget to pop over to Wayno's blog to see what he has to say about this week's cartoons!

Until my next post, be happy, be smart, be nice, and resist ignorance and fascism.
