Clam Shells of Comedy

Bizarro is brought to you today by Nature's Cruelty.

This cartoon idea came from my good buddy, Richard Cabeza. It is a simple pun, but a funny one with a good pic. I got a number of emails from readers who really liked it, including one from a woman who said it had particularly spoken to her since she had just gone bra shopping.

You just never know when a cartoon is going to touch someone's life.

I am still in Indianapolis at this writing, which, if Columbus had thought he were in Japan instead of India when he arrived in the Bahamas, would be called Japaneseopolis. I think that's worth remembering.

It is cold here and the people are cruel. So cruel that they don't allow smoking anywhere in my hotel – not a single smoking room. So to smoke a cigar I have to go outside, bundled like the Michelin Man, and walk the streets like a common peasant. Why does life have to be so hard?

In contrast to the last few days when the temps were in the mid-to-low twenties during my peasant parades, today it was 40 degrees! This was much appreciated and the city felt just a little bit less cruel. Like 15 degrees less.

More in my next blog about the shenanigans and monkey shines that have ensued since I got here.

Hey everyone,

given dan and ashley are big on animal rights ..

once again off topic i have to say this is without a doubt one of the funniest videos i ever seen.

julie said...

Cabeza? Is that his real name, or is he just trying to get A Head in cartooning? What have we done to deserve this particular PUNishment?

not that it matters a whole lot, either way.
i'm really glad you're posting again. it got very boring very quickly while you were gone.

If Anon may die over a few insipid plays on words, then all the better reason to do them.

I wonder if hell has the internet yet, if they do its still probably dial-up.

Ha! You wished me death. Great stuff, man. That dial-up internet joke is classic too. But seriously, a little heads up - if you're going to lay out jokes as low end as those, don't be surprised when they end up in a Bizarro six weeks from now.

You two should get a room.

I would be happy to have Dan illustrate a joke of mine. You must value his work on some level, you take the time to comment on it almost every day. Almost, Every, Day.
