The Dogfather

Today's Bizarro recasts a familiar television/movie situation with canine actors.
The gag is pretty straightforward. Substituting the word "pack" for the expected "gang" creates a question, which is resolved when the reader realizes that, of course, a gang of dogs would indeed be called a pack.

Bizarro's creator, Dan Piraro, transposed the positions of the cast, which makes for a nice descending eye-trail from upper left to lower right, but otherwise followed the submission sketch pretty closely.
There was no deep strategy behind choosing the name Banjo, other than its satisfying sound, and the feeling that the head honcho would naturally address the reluctant participant by his first name, in order to lend his words a threatening air.

We'll be back with another collaborative funny early next week. In the meantime, please browse the Bizarro Comics Root Cellar to view all of our earlier joint efforts.
