Useful Children

Bizarro is brought to you today by This Century's Village People.

Kids. What're you gonna do with 'em?

I have to modestly admit I really like this gag. The picture alone makes me smile as the house frau attempts to change channels by squeezing the baby. I also really like the dad's T-shirt, which is one of my Bizarro aliens. Did you know you can purchase this very shirt, or any of my other "secret symbols" on a shirt here? Now you do.

A while back, I published a Sunday cartoon a small part of which was the design below. A couple of people asked me if I'd be releasing that design on T-shirts. (Side note: I hate that term "releasing" used in that way. It comes from the record industry, I think, as they try to drum up excitement about a new album. It makes it sound as though they have a product in a cage somewhere and are going to unleash it on the public. Whoa, Katy bar the door.) So yes, I will be offering this design on shirts soon. Keep an eye (or both, so it doesn't give you a headache) on this blog for info on how/when to order. I have high hopes of selling more than a dozen! I shoot for the moon, that's how I roll.

I can understand the "icons" But the "Bizarro.com ©Dan Piraro" Shirts & products are just advertising

... and is kinda looks like employee clothes for only you( and people who work with your website, if the are any?)

But people are suckers, Some people buy designer label clothes, so why not this and that is good for you and your bank account...

I agree with danman there are 7 hidden objects. That is why I don't like the little number; I try to avoid looking at the number whenever I read a new comic.

Hey!!!! Can I get an Anonymous T-shirt???? That would be swell!

PIRARO said...

You're right, there are seven. I go over it and my editor goes over it and somehow we both missed one. Damn!

This extra hidden mystery object, seemingly appearing out of nowhere, could be evidence of intelligent design.
