Caves and Cavities

Bizarro is brought to you today by Birth By Bike.

I have no doubt that most American readers (U.S. and Canada) will get this cartoon, but since I have a growing number of international Bizarro Jazz Pickles, It may be helpful to some if I explain it a bit further.

Somewhere in the United States (either in South Dakota or Puerto Rico, I think) is an impressively large mountain sculpture of some notable American presidents. It is called Mount Rushmore and one of the notable giant heads protruding from it is that of George Washington, our first president. If English is not your first language, or if it is and you don’t know it very well, “spelunking” is a word that means “cave exploration.” (According to the Urban Dictionary, it also means this, apparently. Which is not all that different, I suppose.)

So all we have here is a couple of spelunkers climbing into the nose of George Washington. I’ve been to Mt. Rushmore and you can’t actually do this, but in this cartoon, you can. That’s part of the fun of silly drawings; you can make them do anything you like.

Just for your own personal edification, here is a picture of Mt. Rushmore from behind.

You don’t yet have a copy of my latest book, “Bizarro Heroes”? Whatsamatter?
