Gray Matters

(To make it big like a rhino’s butt, click any brain in a jar.)

Bizarro is brought to you by Halloween HORROR!

Once you’ve recovered from the image below that first link, dear reader, I encourage you to click on the above image and view it large because I put a lot of effort into this art.  And I added a few small jokes on the wall posters that I don’t want you to miss, but with screen resolution be so low on computer, I fear you’ll not be able to read them. On the poster behind Frank it says, “Diversity — Because you’re made of different people.” On the anatomy poster behind the mad doctor, the hands are labeled as “Paws,” the thigh label says “Lap,” the legs tag says “Getaway Sticks,” the feet say “Dogs.”  I thought this was a fun, non-traditional Halloween cartoon that you might enjoy. If you did not enjoy it, please don’t tell me; I live for your approval.

The picking-Frank’s-brain idea came from my buddy, Cliff, King of Word Play. He’s a peachy fella. I very much enjoyed composing this picture of Cliff’s vision. I hope I did it justice.

    I love the stapler on Herr Doktor’s desk. Nice touch, as is the band-aid on the skull.

    Kudos to Cliff on a terrific gag, and to you, sir, for another amazing drawing.

    I so hate those “motivational” posters. You ought to get yours printed!

  7. sandie sajner says:

    Yes, very hilarious! I always enjoy finding where you’ve hidden the pie and the firecracker! Where’s the penguin? You always throw in so many interesting facets to observe, smile and laugh over! Eyeballs! Thanks Dan!

  8. Sean Maslow says:

    Freakin’ brilliant! I LOL-ed at “getaway sticks” and have always appreciated plays on those motivational posters (i.e., Thanks, Dan!

  9. Cliff says:

    You took a cute little pun and turned it into a masterpiece! You da man, Dan!

  10. Keera says:

    I went right to the bigger version and zoomed in. Managed to read the fine print on Frank’s poster, too, which leads me to my question: Just how big is the original art that you draw, anyway?

    PS: I LOL’ed, too.

    Diversity: Because you’re made of different people.

    I love it :-)

  12. Carolyn Dane says:

    Yeah, but Frank was the doctor, not the patient.

    • Piraro says:

      Someone always mentions this. The thing is that in my cartoons I often just use the vernacular version of things so people will catch it quickly. Who knows, maybe Dr. Frankenstein came to call his monster “Frank.” :o)

  13. Francesca says:

    If Frank is the monster, what is the doctor’s name?

  14. jeannie says:

    camel toe much on the horrible Elvis?

  15. Joan Peters says:

    I’m stealing “Getaway Sticks”. Thanks for the laugh!

    ( I traced the Larry, Curly & GMO cartoon back to you…glad I did! I have been sporadically back since then…great site! You funny! :-)

  17. Cob says:

    This IS one of your best. The layers of funny are almost too many to count.

  18. Olivia Neil says:

    i love bizarro!!!!!! this is my favorite cartoon!!!!!!!!!!! :) :) thx so much for this hilarious one!!!!!!! i love it! :)

  19. John R says:

    I always enjoy the attention to detail in your art, Dan. These aren’t comics you take a quick glance at and move on :)

  20. nudge says:

    Dan you so rock.

    Two shovels of approval for you!

  21. Michael Loh says:

    Hi Dan, always enjoyed your stuff…but technically, “Frank” never had a name and Frank is actually the doctor’s name I believe. But its ok, its funny none the less.


    • Piraro says:

      Yes, I know. I always get this when I do Frankenstein jokes. The monster is routinely called Frankenstein now so I just use the vernacular to make the gag clear.
