Versatile Vestment

As we plow through the season of gift-giving insanity, here's a shopping tip in the form of today's Bizarro cartoon.
For comparison, here's the sketch I submitted to Bizarro's creator, Dan Piraro.
The joke is a little on the meta side, with a couple of cartoonists (Dan and myself) commenting on one of our standard props: the striped jersey. Depending on a few other visual cues, this article of clothing is indeed routinely employed to depict pirates, mimes, burglars and French people. We've all used it, and will probably continue to do so as long as cartoons are drawn.

We'll squeeze in one final collaboration this year, with many more in store for 2013 (assuming the Mayans are wrong).

Please feel free to review all of our previous joint efforts, which are conveniently archived in this blog's Bizarro Warehouse.

Speaking of blogs, you ought to check out Dan's very informative Bizarro Blog, where he offers plenty of insight into his creative process, along with amusing and unexpected links.

I clicked the link from Piraro's blog looking forward to reading what you had to say about Dan wearing such a jersey & pretending to be Picasso!

Doh.

I guess the joke was on readers like me taking you guys literally. [lol]

The Mayans were wrong.

Not sure about the Frenchmen.
