Bizarro is brought to you today by My Yoga Practice.
As is often the case, I was too busy on Monday and Tuesday to deal with my blog so here is a multi-pickle post with three cartoons. Only one of the strip versions is included because the other two don’t really offer any information that the vertical panel formats don’t. You’re supposed to begin any piece of writing with a sentence or two that grab the reader’s attention. Boy, did I blow that on this post.
I once saw a man on a NYC subway train making out with a giant salami and that was the inspiration for the character behind the dialogue bubble on the strip version of my Jan 7 cartoon.
The truth is that if you ride the NYC subway often enough, you will eventually see just about anything you can imagine. That’s fun for a while, but eventually I found that it began to warp my view of the world and make me feel that I was living in some kind of test tube belonging to a grand research project by beings from another planet. One can only imagine the sort of impression they have of the human race after studying people on the subway. Come to think of it, it’s probably a fairly accurate one.
My final cartoon in today’s post comes from the exceedingly clever dog of a friend of mine, Tom Marshall. His dog, Oso, a former captain in the Sardinian Navy, once came across a pirate in the Mediterranean who had restless leg syndrome, then lost the leg but still had the restlessness. What a bummer.
REBIZARROS: Today’s archival oddity is from 1998. As I was riding the subway one day in the same car with a sheep, I began wondering what she might be thinking of and this cartoon forced its way into my brain. Now, 17 years later, I humbly offer it to you.
