Chess Gangsters

Bizarro appears today courtesy of Paramount Studios. Soon to be (satirizing) a major motion picture starring Jim Carrey or Keanu Reeves or somebody like that.

If you're one of the millions of Americans who cannot decide which is more riveting, playing chess or watching gangster movies, this cartoon is probably already clipped out and on your fridge. For those of you unacquainted with either, these two chess pieces – called a "knight" and a "bishop"– are reenacting an iconic scene from Francis Ford Coppola's classic, "The Godfather."

Seriously, if you needed me to tell you that, you might need a tutor or something.

Hee hee, great panel, actually managed to catch this one in the paper too. It is so heartening to open the daily comics and see content with actual thought and sometimes even a bit of almost subversive content :-) If I have to have a Tudor, I want Anne! I got soooooooooooooul! I'm super bad!

Great use of the Bishop's "hat" in the panel's concept.
