Big 'nuts

This special edition of Bizarro has been made possible by a generous dose of Real Life.

I got the idea for this cartoon from seeing a picture of Randy's Donuts in Los Angeles. From there, I leapt to the not-uncommon belief that aliens helped build some of the wonders of the ancient world like the pyramids and soforth, and arrived at this joke.

A day or two after it ran in the paper, I got a nice email from a couple of groovniks whose last name is "Oh," and who had used this pic of themselves for their holiday card one year. I asked if I could post it on my blog and they said no, but I did it anyway because I am an inconsiderate ass. One of the fringe benefits of having no money or assets is that you don't care if people sue you.

I changed the name of the donut place because I figure Randy is famous enough without my help. How could you not be famous with a huge donut on your roof?

(NOTE: I lied. My new friends, the Ohs, did give me consent to post this picture of them so I am not the inconsiderate ass I pretended to be above. Please go back to thinking of me as a role model of civility and compassion.)

You know, you do look a little like that image of St. Francis. File it away, I suppose, as a potential Halloween costume, for the year when you meet someone with dozens of trained birds...

Highly likely an alien "police force" design.

And it's about as far from NYC as you can get...

I buh-lieve that particular donut was just a location for the new Iron Man movie that's filming. btw, the more Godzilla strips you do, the better. This Sunday's may have beat out "why Godzilla hates cities" for my favorite.

I like how this is one of two recent comics where a hidden item was not hidden.
