Mayan Mahem

by Wayno & Piraro

Bizarro is brought to you today by Predictions.

In this first week of 2012, the last year of the world as we know it, this cartoon of mine from ’09 has really been making the rounds. People are posting it all over the interwebs: forwarding it in emails, putting it on their Book of Faces pages, etc. I’m cool with that, as long as my copyright is legible and it is linked to this blog site whenever possible.

The strangest use of this comic so far, however, is the bizarre picture below, sent to me via email by a reader in Denmark. She couldn’t say where it was from and I have no idea either. I think it is hilarious that someone went to all the trouble to recreate this comic in a photo. Why not just use my comic? But still, the result is fantastically odd and charmingly awkward. I can’t help but be flattered.

If anyone can find out where this came from, I’ll send you an autographed one dollar bill. Why an autographed one dollar bill? I don’t know, it’s just the first thing that came to mind and all I can afford at the moment. I’d love to contact these guys and find out what the reason behind this kooky image is and what they’re using it for.

A lot of similar cartoons have been done about the Mayan calendar prediction hoax. Some before mine, some after. It’s inevitable with this kind of topic. Many people have hilariously pointed out that if the Mayas were so good at predictions, their culture would still be here. The first time I heard that, it made me LOL out loud.

So get cracking Bizarro Jazz Pickles. I want these nutty wack-monkeys delivered to my throne immediately! I shall decide whether to have them beheaded after I’ve spoken to them.

In the meantime, you can get my Maya cartoon on a gazillian different products right here. Spend as much as you like on these things, the world is ending this year anyway and you won’t need your money. (Here’s my personal favorite)
