Bizarro is brought to you today by The Heavens.
I was musing one day about people's various ideas of "heaven." The idea of an afterlife of any kind is not one that I embrace at all, I think it is no more likely than a pre-life, of which there was most certainly none to my knowledge. Sorry if I offended any reincarnation believers, it just isn't something I can accept. If it works for you, go for it.
I've done a lot of cartoons about the cliche heaven with angels and clouds and while writing gags a few weeks ago, I suddenly thought; what if they aren't clouds? What if we were lice in God's beard? To my mind, it makes as much sense as any of the other ideas I was brought up with and it gives me a chuckle. In fact, there has likely been a culture that believed something similar; just about anything you can imagine about the origin of the anything, the meaning of life, the consequences and conditions of birth and death have been thought of before and had an alter built about them. Why not bugs in God's beard?
So there's the genesis of this cartoon. If there is a god, I hope he/she/it isn't mad at me for making so many jokes about religion. I'm just trying to make people smile. Honest. (fingers crossed)
