Public Nudity for the Greater Good

Bizarro is brought to you today by Beverage Biology.

I do a lot of cartoons about people sitting in bars, as do many cartoonists, but I don't actually spend any time in bars. But as much as I dislike smalltalk with strangers, noise, uncomfortable seating and overpriced drinks, a bar is still a terrific setting for two people who don't know each other to exchange punch lines. So here we are.

I can imagine a further scene in this cartoon. The bartender says to the guy, "Sir, you're not wearing any clothing," to which he replies with cliche authoritative smugness, "It's all right, I'm a doctor."

Hope you enjoyed this rectangular attempt at humor. Please don't miss the dandy reflections in the countertop. I worked hard on those.

THIS JUST IN: THERE WILL BE A CONTEST LATER TODAY! FIRST ONE IN SEVERAL WEEKS!! SPREAD THE WORD!!! CONTEST WILL BE POSTED AT 7PM NYC TIME!!!!

While reflecting upon the reflections, I also reflected on yesterday's Motorcycle ramp-jump cartoon, which used shadows. Said shadows were a reflection of shade caused by the mid-day sun, apparently directly overhead at that moment. Zowie!

I actually noticed and very much appreciated the reflections before reading your post and seeing that you worked hard on them. Just so you know. Thanks for the comics and their commentary!

The reflections in the countertop are rather exquisite. But since when were bar countertops that clean?

There should be more naked people in cartoons, although of course, if the gods had intended us to go about naked, we'd have been born that way.
