Tragedies, Funny and Not

by Wayno & Piraro

Bizarro is brought to you today by Tragedy.

I trust all of you had a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day this week, and by “wonderful” I mean “drank until you puked and made a complete public nuisance of yourself.” While wearing too much green. For that is what St. Patrick would have wanted.

On a lighter note, in 1912 a very big boat sank in the North Atlantic and over 1500 people drowned. The cartoon above is a humorous look at that event. As the old saying goes: Comedy is tragedy plus time. Perhaps 99 years from now, someone will make a frivolous cartoon about the recent tsunami that struck Japan. Hahahaha. But not yet.

I’ve had a rough week myself – nothing to do with tsunamis or boat sinkings or St. Patrick’s Day, just a generally rough week – so I’m not feeling wordy today. Maybe that’s a good thing. I’m not complaining, mind you. At least I wasn’t floating 10 miles off the coast of Japan for four days on what used to be the roof of my home like this guy.

P.S. The idea for this cartoon was sent to me by the Gorban family, who came up with it over dinner one night.

P.P.S. Here are some products with this cartoon on them. Share the tragedy with friends! Titanic
