Here's a recap of this week's offerings.
The Grim Reaper is a favorite of cartoonists everywhere, and we figured this panel should be nine times as funny as a cartoon with just one reaper. The additional ink needed to draw and print the extras comes to you at no extra cost.
Here's what can happen when you wait until the last minute to order props for your theater. There were no human skulls available, so this production of "Hamlet" had to settle for an alien cranium. They hoped no one would notice, but there was an eagle-eyed crackpot in the front row.
Office supplies analyze and critique each other just like we do.
This caption originally read, "Lunchtime at the National Bureau of Standards," but that left no room for the picture, so we went with "the lab" instead. This marks my first use of The Lost Loafer.
Here at Bizarro Studios, we admire educators. Teachers work very hard—at least our teachers did—and they rarely get enough thanks. This gag is a token of our appreciation for all they do. It's not much, but, hey, we just make cartoons, it's the best we have to offer.
An example of reverse-engineering to set up a weird pun. While working on this one, we learned the word planchette. It's not the surname of an award-winning Australian actress, but, rather, that heart-shaped contraption used to produce messages from the spirits. A lot of research goes into your daily laffs!
That's it from Bizarro Studios North for this week. Be sure to read Señor Piraro's blog for a beautiful Sunday cartoon, plus Dan's commentary on this week's shenanigans.
Big thanks from the new guy (below, right) for all the nice comments, crazy suggestions, and words of encouragement.
