This is my last day of vacation so my next post will be full of verbosity. If you care.
Today’s cartoon is a bit of a soft gag, I suppose, but I just thought it would be really funny to impose Hollywood action film rules on actual life for a moment.
A fun bit of Jazz Pickle trivia: I used the same boardroom drawing for this gag as I did in the one below from 2013. Compare and contrast.

Here is J.C.Duffy’s (Fusco Brothers, New Yorker) third cartoon of the week. If you missed my previous two posts then you may not know that a few weeks back I took a vacation and J.C. filled in for me. He did the work I was supposed to submit that week, which is just now running in newspapers, so I’m not actually on vacation now; in case you were thinking of robbing my house. (Okay, my nest hanging on the side of a building in downtown L.A.)
One of my most faithful Jazz Pickles requested that I post old Bizarros on these pages along with Duffy’s work, so here’s one from 2002 that I like. If you’ve ever had a job of any kind for any reason, you will likely relate to this gag.

Clowns are another favorite and recurring theme for me as a cartoonist, even though I kind of hate them in real life. Even as a child I didn’t trust them. To me, it was a human in a disguise acting weird and trying to get me to like them. I couldn’t see the difference between them and other strangers with candy that my parents had warned me about. I’m still very uncomfortable around clowns and prefer to move away from them.
Now I know that most people who do the clown thing are nice folks who just want to make people laugh or whatever, so don’t start complaining that I’m calling all clowns pedophiles. Only a small percentage of them are. Like priests.
This fun little ditty was a collaboration with my known associate, Wayno. He’s a clever little monkey and is particularly good at clown gags. Here’s my favorite of his, I think, which is one that he wrote and drew for me as a guest cartoonist back in a former year. Words cannot express how much I like that gag. Well, yes, they can; I like it SO much.
Wayno has an entertaining blog of his own and here’s what he says about today’s cartoon.
