She-Devil He-Devil Afro Tux

Bizarro is brought to you by Still HOT!

Have you ever dated Samantha? I certainly have. I may have even married her once or twice, but that’s another story. Dating is difficult under the best of circumstances but for heterosexuals it is even more challenging because we are compelled to do it with someone of a different sex. Few things make less sense to men than women, and I would guess that many women feel the reverse is true, too. But isn’t that the beauty of human love? No, sometimes it is not.

Enough of the whining, let’s discuss the devil’s trip to the hospital. One reader wrote to me this week asking me what this cartoon meant. If you are that reader, then you already know the answer because I responded promptly and politely, which is my habit. If you are not that reader and have wondered for yourself what this cartoon means, wonder no more for the next sentence will explain it. The devil likes bad things to happen to people so if someone came through surgery quite well, he would be disappointed by the “good” news.  If you are now wondering if I actually believe in the devil since I draw so many cartoons featuring him, the answer is yes, he is Karl Rove.

“What is an ‘afrog,” Dan?” I now hear someone asking. An “afrog” is a hairstyle like the one featured in the cartoon at left, as worn by a frog. When it is worn by a human, it is called an “afro,” which is short for “African” or something, since people of African descent popularized the look. I am of Sicilian descent, have naturally curly hair and wore an afro in high school. I am particularly fond of this hairstyle and wish it would come into style with frogs and back into vogue with humans. The seeds for this gag were donated to me by Victor Rivera, a young hillbilly boy in North Carolina. Too bad he will never see it because literacy has not yet reached as far up into the Appalachians as he lives.

Our final cartoon today shows the double meaning that punctuation can sometimes have. “Party’s” can mean either the possessive of “party,” or it can be a contraction of “party is.” That second use is not completely kosher, but the character in this cartoon is not Jewish and does not care.

That’s all for today’s cartoon-0-rama-explanathon. I hope you found it both amusing and educating and will check back in a couple of days when I sober up and post some more cartoons.

Stay crunchy, kosher, and spicy, Jazz Pickles.

    If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands. If you’re happy and you don’t know it, blow a raspberry.

    Really liked the “press your tux” cartoon. Reminded me of Groucho – “time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana” and “Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read”.

    In my experience, redheads do often need warning labels.

    I thought the devil cartoon meant that the devil was waiting to take the person’s soul who was being operated/worked on and because the person came through and was well, the devil (Karl Rove) was be disappointed. Both work, right? Love the afrog – I giggle writing it. And finally, I shutter to think what would have to be on my warning badge. However the result was the same. :-)

    Interesting, the devil wears underpants… how very American :p (Pixellating people’s bits in even the most harmless of tv programmes and the most harmless of circumstances certainly seems to be an American import… me, I’m German. Nudity doesn’t equal porn. It’s just a body – unless one does something naughty with it, of course.)

    But – ooooooooh! – I notice the little triangle beneath the devil’s modestly folded hands is devil-pink, not underpants-red! Wardrobe malfunction or kinky lingery?

      Yes, American’s are UBERsensitive to nudity of any kind and scream for the purity of their children if someone is even shown breastfeeding on TV. Meanwhile, any kind of violence for any reason is considered wholesome family entertainment. Similarly, half the country would take to the streets with torches if the word “tit” were to be used on a prime-time sit-com, but a TV character can blow someone’s head off with a shotgun to steal their lunch money and no one bats an eye. This is a strange place, to put it mildly.

    “Press your tux” . . . Now that’s how you do a proper pun. Nice one Piraro and Andy.

  8. Packy says:

    I almost agree with Karl Rove as Old Scratch, Dan… except I see him more as one of the devil’s right-hand henchmen demons.

    Dick Cheney is the devil.

    • Indi says:

      I see your point … bad republicans are the spawn of satan while bad democrats are just feckless clowns. And who doesn’t love a clown? “Look Timmy, there’s a clown, go poke it!”

      OK, I know that wasn’t your actual point, but what the heck, I went with it.

      • Piraro says:

        I dislike bad Democrats as much as bad Republicans but I can’t think of any that have approach the kind of insidious role that Karl Rove has played in lying to the nation and persuading so many people to vote against themselves and for the ultra rich.
