Hairy Donkey

Bizarro is brought to you today by Sad News.

As a man who has lost a bit of protein real estate on my north forty, I feel I can honestly critique the “comb-over”. Gentlemen; it looks terrible. Just go with what nature gave you and “own it,” as they say. Confidence in who you are is so much more attractive than any amount of hair flowing over, hovering above, or swirling across places where it no longer grows. We live in a time when being completely bald is not only acceptable, it is fashionable. Embrace it.

That said, I don’t really care what anyone else does with their hair. I just thought it would be funny to draw people with hair coming out of bad places. So did my buddy, Cliff Harris, who constructed this gag with me. Cliff is over forty but still has all his hair. The bastard.

And, for extra gits and shiggles, here is yesterday’s gag: History of the Pinata. (Sorry, I don’t know how to make the little squiggle mark [tilde] appear over the “n”. Maybe I need a Spanish keyboard?) I grew up in the southern U.S. where pinatas are a standard birthday party accessory and I’ve always loved them. What kid doesn’t enjoy putting on a blindfold and swinging a bat in hopes of knocking the stuffing out of something and being rewarded with candy? On my 11th birthday it was Doug Enevoldsen who got the stuffing knocked out of him but it wasn’t candy that came flying out, it was teeth. Still, a good time was had by all. Except Doug.

This is the perfect gift for somebody on your gift list. If you don’t have a gift list, it’s the perfect book for you. And it’s cheaper than a life-size Michele Bachmann pinata.
