Bizarro is brought to you today by Signs of Intelligent Life.
A Bizarro reader wrote to me recently suggesting something about a BBQ that pointed out the difference between Old West Indians and “real” Indians from India. That sparked this idea, which I like a lot. It has the element of the unexpected right in the last word of the dialogue, which is the best place for it. I know this because I am a cartoonist.
People sometimes ask me, “Have you always been able to draw cartoons?” The answer is no. There have been many times when I was using both hands to carry a heavy object and I would not have been able to draw cartoons. A friend of mine once let me take the controls of his small airplane and this would be another time I would have been unable to draw cartoons. Once, during a sexual encounter, I was using both hands and, again, could not have drawn cartoons. Then there was that time I was a baby. That lasted several years and I was unable to draw cartoons, as far as I can remember, but I’m guessing that if I had, my mom would have saved them. Unless they just weren’t funny enough to bother with. I’ll have to ask her to be sure.
Other people have asked me, “Where do your ideas come from?” You might have already guessed the answer to this one: Walmart. Because I’m “saving money, living better.”
