Bizarro is brought to you today by Expository Book Titles.
It has come that time in history when I am going to be forced to buy health insurance. Since I work for myself, I’ve no company policy of any kind that I can glom onto, and the only organization I belong to, the National Cartoonists Society, has no policy or discount rates, either. I’ve been without coverage for the past 12 years and have saved tens of thousands of dollars. But those days are gone. I have no idea where to get decent affordable catastrophic insurance and man, do I hate having to give money to the health insurance industry, something I consider to be more malignant than the Mafia. I guess that’s why the first joke posted here resonated with me.
Regarding the second gag, a Jazz Pickle sent me a link to a story stating that back in 1930, the BBC actually did exactly this same thing on their daily news broadcast. Wacky, yes?
BIZARROLD: Today’s blast from the past dates from 2000 and has nothing to do with the themes of the cartoons above. I just came across it in my archives and thought it was funny. I hope you do not violently disagree.
