Bacon Fat

This afternoon, I'll be attending the 15th annual Hell with the Lid Off barleywine festival. It's important to be well-rested for HWTLO, so this week's comments are briefer than usual to allow for extra nap time.

Coincidentally, the soldiers' last names are Toothpick, Tweezers, Nail File, Corkscrew, Can Opener, Screwdriver, Awl, and Fish Scaler. 

Swiss military personnel also have an extra leg joint for enhanced foldability.

The yellow beak is colorful enough, let's not go crazy.

Domestic felines require plenty of sleep so they can wake their human companions early in the morning for breakfast.

The candidate who promises to bring back crash test jobs is guaranteed the blockhead vote. Or should that be the blockhead bloc?

UPDATE: We at Bizarro Studios categorically deny receiving advance notice of the release of the Mueller Report, and did not coordinate with the so-called deep state on the timing of today's cartoon.

Thanks for following Bizarro, and for putting up with my weekly ramblings. Dan Piraro offers his own take on the week's gags at his blog

Bonus Tracks

Over the weekend, we learned of the passing of the undisputed king of surf guitar, Dick Dale, and Detroit R&B legend Andre "Mr. Rhythm" Williams. Both were in their early 80s, and each made plenty of unique, entertaining music.

Here's one of Dick Dale's earliest hits, which became his signature tune.

It wasn't easy to pick a single Andre Williams record to share, but this is one of my favorites.

  1. Congratulations on all your great work with Bizarro. It is amazing and I appreciate the incredible amount of time spent honing these gags/puns/ideas. Best wishes on the Hell with the Lid Off Fest tonight, have a good nap! I forgot that Dick Dale fronted a line-up called the Del-Tones. That is such a great name.--Fred Carlson from the eastern suburbia of Pittsburgh
