Robot Muscles

Bizarro is brought to you today
Roadside Robots.

Two more cartoons today, what a week it has been for more than one cartoon! First is the robot cartoon that comments on our species' regrettable ability to destroy everything we touch, usually for important reasons like personal comfort, sensory pleasure, and convenience. It's not like it's ever going to stop, but then neither will I stop complaining about it so maybe that evens out.

Next is a joke about exercising only a single part of your body. I've explored this theme at least a couple of times before, once with a guy who's right side is totally lumpy like a weightlifter and the other side is skinny. The other appears in my book, "Bizarro and Other Strange Manifestations of the Art of Dan Piraro," and is posted below.

Theoretically, it seems it should be possible to work certain facial muscles to the point that they bulge. I wonder if this will ever become a fad.

Click the image to enlarge it so you can read the caption from the book. That book is out of print now, but can still be bought here. You'll love it and I'll have more room in my garage. Seriously.

A sustained and continuing laugh at the robot cartoon. Thank you.

As for the facial muscularity, I'm marking your words. The pendulum swing away from botox is bound to happen, and I bet that's gonna be the other end of the swing around, say, year 2020. Maybe if people build up the bridges of their noses well enough their eyes will go akimbo and they can develop actual hindsight - so 2020!

I really like how you comment all cartoons, and even the books have comments! In the face muscle image, I dont get the U.B.A. :-)
