Bizarro is brought to you today by Materialism.
This gag reminds me a bit of the comedy of George Carlin. I can almost hear him asking why a firetruck isn’t called a watertruck. Maybe I flatter myself.
This gag was very time consuming to draw and especially color, but I really enjoyed the process and am happy with the results. There is a hidden gag for my most faithful and observant Jazz Pickles, too. Hope you can find it.
I’ve never lost anything to fire but I can only imagine the horror of seeing your home go up in flames. It’s one of my greatest fears, in fact. So if anyone reading this cartoon recently lost their stuff to fire, sorry. I say that because this kind of coincidence happens countless times every time I do a cartoon about tragedy, and I always feel bad even though I know I didn’t have anything to do with it. Am I being silly? Probably.
