Wrong Size Sandwich











(click the images to see them LARGE)

Bizarro is brought to you today by
Liza Minelli.

Here's another post with a two-fer, to make up some ground on the cartoons I didn't post while away. I really like cartoons like "Clown Mistakes," ones that are outside the usual formula of one-panel comics. More like a chart or diagram than a scene, my hero, B. Kliban was a genius at this kind of joke and the first person I ever saw employ this style.

Lots of readers really loved the sandwich joke, one even said it was the "best Bizarro ever." Normally I'd be happy about such a compliment, but I confess I didn't write this joke. It was given to me by my colleague, Wayno, who was kind enough to help me get ahead while trying to prepare for my lengthy trip away. Several of the jokes that printed last week and this were by Wayno. You can see them all on his blog. Many thanks, amigo!

Still catching up, must run.

Hey, 'Kay, first off, I love your comics. I always cut them out and keep 'em. Second, this has nothing to do with the comics you posted, but I just wanted to let you know that your blog has been nominated for a Cheesey Award. Which really means, that I think your blog is awesome and you need some sort of award. Now you might not know what The Cheesey Awards are, so I'm going to explain them: The Cheesey Awards are a post I post every three month on my blog and they recognize some of the best and the best WORST things out there. So I usually give awards to the winners. But scine I kinda somewhat don't know you, I will comment on your most recent post if you have one a Cheesey. So yeah. Bye. Keep up the good work.

The Clownish Friend... said...

Hey Dan! I love the clown comic, and my best friend happens to work at a children's party restaurant as a clown, so when I showed this to him, he couldn't stop laughing. :p

We're glad that you are back as we are desperate followers.. <3

It's Rubenesque, not Reubenesque.

Yes, but with that spelling there is no joke. "Reuben" is the name of a sandwich.
