Bizarro is brought to you today by The Talent Portion of Our Competition.
What's funnier than caveman violence? A lot of things, but today's cartoon is about caveman violence anyway.
I guess this joke comes from the recent economic catastrophe, known in some corners as The Bush Legacy, and while there is nothing funny about so many people being out of work, maybe a recently laid off employee might look at this cartoon and say to him or herself, "well, at least I didn't get clubbed or speared." Or perhaps even, "At least I don't have to go around in a one-shoulder dead animal skin and get an uneven tan. At least not yet, anyway."
Keep in mind that during the Great Depression, things were even worse than this and FDR brought us out of it with government spending, which Republicans (who pushed us into that one, too) decried as insanity. Those who do not learn from history are destined to repeat it and here we are again. But things are beginning to turn around. Let's keep our fingers crossed for a quick recovery. It took 8 years to bury the country this deep, it's going to take more than a few months to dig it out.
P.S. I think I used that photo that is beneath the "Talent Portion" link above before, but it's so great, I decided to use it again.
Until tomorrow, smile with every lip on your face...
