Bizarro is brought to you today by Modern Convenience!
If you have trouble remembering spelling rules, imagine what it must have been like for the ancient Egyptians and their funny-picture-writing thing. (Why isn’t there a word for that?)
I confess that I used an old piece of art for this cartoon, which is something many syndicated cartoonists do all of the time but rarely admit. I don’t like to admit it, either, but I figure what the hell? This image was perfect for this gag, why redraw it slightly differently when I can save my time for more important things like repainting my hot air balloon to look like Darth Vader?
I’m quite fond of the gag from the original cartoon, as well, so I offer it to you here.
BYGONE BIZARRO: Since we’re talking about spelling, here is a related gag from a couple of years ago that was the brainchild of my good buddy, Cliff Harris the King of Wordplay. I hope this journey into the history of our Egyptian neighbors has amused you in some way.
