Stovepipe Envy

Another Saturday is upon us, which means it's time for the cartoon recap from Bizarro Studios North. Here's what we served up on this week's Smörgåsbord.

Proceed with caution. The first comic depicts human nipples.

Mathematically, this is the reciprocal of an X-ray, so the correct notation is probably X-1-ray.

This is also known as the Baby Step Program.

Historical fact: Stephen Douglas, at 5'4", was a a full 12 inches shorter than Abe Lincoln. 

Historical speculation: Douglas lobbied for another debate after acquiring his custom-made smokestack hat.

If you gotta go, at least go in style.

My comical colleagues Rina Piccolo and Hilary Price ran a different gag involving the Reaper and a Venetian vessel back in November, on the very day I uploaded today's Bizarro. However, we all maintain there was NO COLLUSION.

Friday's comic is an experiment in misdirection. It's fun and satisfying for a cartoonist to find a way to draw something that looks like something else, in hopes that the reader doesn't immediately recognize the thing as what it is. Like this one, for instance.

The LAPD always asks which is your good side before they snap the mug shot.

Thanks for following for yet another week!

Be sure to read Dan Piraro's blog, to see what he has to say about this latest batch, and to gape in wonder at his Sunday Bizarro page.

Bones Track


  1. Bare bones comedy. Doesn't bother me - it's no skin off my nose.

  2. I have question about comic from 3/9/16 - can't find it in your Blog Archive. How can I ask you about it? Thank you in advance!

  3. Oh - you can write to rather than use up your comments space.
