Mmm Mmm, Good

Today's Bizarro cartoon revisits a time-honored gag motif: a fly in someone's soup.

It was fun to find yet another new twist by adding a lobster bib to indicate what the character is about to eat. Though I've worn a few lobster bibs in my time, I do recognize that they're inherently a little silly.
