(Click on the image for a Gulliver-sized version to aim your eyes at.)
Bizarro is brought to you today by Big Phones.
I normally post cartoons about a week after they appear in newspapers, so this one should have been posted last week. BUT, last week I posted the current date's cartoon so that readers could find out the answers to the Sunday Puzzler and this one got bumped.
When I was young, stories about Gulliver and his travels were favorites of mine. The idea of being huge in a land of tiny people, or being visited by a giant, was fascinating to me. (Although if given the choice, I'd rather be able to become invisible or fly under my own power than be impossibly huge.)
If you were the size of Gulliver – roughly the height of a 30-story building compared to the Lilliputians – you'd have to say goodbye to things like sexual relations and privacy of any kind. I can only imagine how the Lilliputians dealt with his bowel movements. The stench must have been like living near a commercial hog farm in modern-day America.
No idea who Gulliver might have been calling on his gigantic cell phone, but I like the image. I also like to imagine the Lilliputians playing with the apps by jumping around barefooted on the touch screen.
Until next time...Beware of carnivorous women.
