Greetings once again from Bizarro Studios North, where the cartooning never stops, or rarely does. A few days ago, I left the drawing table for a few hours, and ventured into the outside world. Unfortunately, it was to have root canal surgery.
I can't say it was enjoyable, but the experience wasn't as awful as its common idiomatic usage indicates. If this post has fewer words (or more typos) than usual, blame the aftereffects of medication.

For Saturday, we pivoted from straight-up comedy to pathos. I believe this is the first time I used an individual Secret Symbol five times in a single panel.
That's the latest output from our fun factory. Don't forget to visit Dan Piraro's blog, to check out his latest Sunday Bizarro page, and read about what's currently occupying his curious mind. It's always worth a visit.
Bongos, Bass & Bob: "Oral Hygiene"
50,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 Watts Records, 1988
While undergoing my endodontic treatment, this tune came to mind. The members of the trio were Dean J. Seal (bongos & vocals), Penn Jillette (bass & vocals), and Rob Elk (guitar & vocals).
Technical note: Some YouTube videos are unavailable outside the US. On some phones, you must select "View Web Version" to see the preview link.
Trivial Note: The label that issued this album was usually referred to as "50 Skidillion Watts Records," and was founded by brothers David and Jad Fair to release music by their amazing band, Half Japanese. The number of zeroes used in the numerical version of the label name varied across releases.
