Smoky Chubby


(Are you among the six or seven people who would like to see this cartoon bigger? Then just click on any Indian’s butt.)

Bizarro is brought to you today by Smoke.

One of my favorite readers is a young fella called Victor. He first sent me some cartoon ideas of his when he was a wee tyke of about 13 or 14. I’ve been using a few of his ideas each year ever since. These days, I use even more than a few. Now he’s a big, grown-up lug of a human in his last year of college. My, how time flies. Especially when you’re as drunk as I usually am.

This cartoon based on the Old West cliche of Native Americans reading smoke signals in the distance was suggested by him. Or at least most of it was. I liked it and added the right panel gag myself. I forgot now what Victor had suggested the thought balloon on the right say, but it wasn’t as much of a punchline as this one is. So there, Victor. Have some humility at the foot of your mentor, for Godzilla’s sake.

Now whaddya say we look at a cartoon about a guy with fat eyes? Lots of people gain weight in only one place: their gut or thighs or butt. What if you could gain weight just in your eyes or ears or elbows? It’s worth thinking about.

Here’s where I’ve been hiding the book I want you to have.

    • Victor’s original idea was about the first group mistaking the other guy’s thought balloon for smoke signals. I added the part about him mistaking their words for a balloon. So the part you’re missing is inconsequential. :0)

  3. I really like the smoke signal comic — classic Bizarro, in which it takes a second to get and is a clever observation of the way things appear.
