Books Death Nicety

By Jeremy Meltingtallow

Bizarro is brought to you today by Carrying the Baby Low.

It is sad that online bookstores have nearly completely run small, independently owned bookstores out of business. It is sad, but is the way of the world and not much can be done about it. I encourage people to buy my books from bookstores, but most do not. It’s just too damned easy to buy them online and have them show up in your mailbox. I wonder if there will be a day when there are no stores left open, other than clothing stores where you need to know exactly how something fits before you buy it. But I’ve even bought eyeglasses online, although I think I may have measured the distance between my eyes wrong. I have to cross my eyes to get the vision exactly right, or hold the glasses a few inches from my face. Serves me right for trying to save a few bucks. (Sigh)

I have nothing much to say about this cartoon other than why aren’t all of those damn numbers on the front of my card enough to identify me? Yes, I know, if someone has an image of the front of your card it keeps them from using it online or whatever. But damn, are you as tired as I am of remembering numbers and codes and user names and passwords and PINs? They say that using your brain in challenging ways can stave off Alzheimer’s. Maybe we’ve already found a cure. Just hacking into my own bank account online is as much challenge as my brain can handle.

That’s all for today, Jazz Pickles. I hope you have a nice one. And if you don’t have a nice one, I hope you’ve at least learned how to disguise it or use it to your benefit somehow. I know I have.

Bizarro in a book that you could conceivably buy at a bookstore if you can find one.
