(This cartoon is WAY more fun BIG. Click the clown’s nose to make it so!)
Bizarro is brought to you today by Delicious Dinner Options.
Here’s another collaboration with my friend, Cliff The Master of Wordplay. And letter- and number- and symbol-play, too. For those readers who are blind or dead, the jokes lie in the T-shirt messages. From left to right: I pie NY, Aye aye NY, I owe NY, I see NY, I love York, I pound NY.
One reader wrote to tell me that the # sign actually has several names –pound, hash, number, octothorpe– so perhaps I should have used the symbol for the British pound – £ – or an 8, for “ate.” Not a bad idea, but it’s a matter for historians now. What’s done is done. Water under the bridge. Dachshunds in a picnic basket, as they say. (Wait. Do they say that last one? They should, it would be cute.)
Of course, I’ve also thrown in a few gags in the store signs, just for those of you who like to dig for gags. “Dingo Baby Clothes” is my favorite.
Here’s another fun gag Cliff worked on with me that uses this same motif.
Goodbye for now, dear reader. If you’re one of those people who buy lots of gifts during the last part of the year, please consider my new book, “Bizarro Heroes,” and also any or all of your favorite Bizarro cartoons from over the years on tons of different products!
