Bizarro is brought to you today by Modern Lady Godiva.
This is a fairly simple and maybe corny pun, but I love the contrast between the big hullabaloo I made with such a complex and formal illustration, and the final gag. Does that make sense? I actually used much of this art a couple of times before but what the hell, it took me a long time to draw, I might as well get my money’s worth, right?
JAZZ PICKLE JAR: The name of today’s archival section is appropriate since I put a jar of jazz pickles in the title panel of today’s strip. Here, from 1999, is a cartoon full of pathos as poor Mr. Potato Head listens to a prosthetics salesman describe his wares. I can’t help but wonder which one he chose, but I guess we’ll never know.

Hey, Jazz Pickles. Lately I’ve decided to try to do good things for others as part of my regular routine and I’ve enjoyed the way it makes me feel. I’m not going to be posting about stuff like this a lot, so don’t get your corset tangled, but here’s one that comes from my boyfriend-in-law (my adult daughter’s live-in boyfriend.) He’s a very innovative and dedicated high school science teacher, and a damned good person.
He’s teaching mostly under-privileged kids who are trying to get to college––most of them will be the first in their family to do so. He hand-picked these students for his new engineering class and has a group that are talented in, and serious about science. He wants to buy a 3-D printer for the classroom and is using a crowd-source funding page to do it. If he raises half the money by Sunday, the Bill Gates Foundation will match it!
I gave some money this morning––have a look and think about pitching in a few bucks, too, if you can. I think helping serious low-income students is a great way to improve society in the future.
Here are my goofy daughter and her serious scientist boyfriend, Chris.
