Three Parrots Chess

Bizarro is brought to you today by Shoulder Pet Art.

I put out a book of Bizarro pirate cartoons a couple years ago––do you have it? If not, that may be the nagging sense of emptiness that you’ve been feeling lately. Whatever the case, this cartoon is not in that book because it is new and publishers will not publish something that does not yet exist at the time of printing. Moreover, this one is a collaboration with my known associate, Wayno. You may wonder what Wayno has to say about this gag. If so, you can find out here. I think it’s lots of fun.

But what’s this? Another cartoon with a parrot? At least the parrot’s companion still has an eye to see with and a hand and foot to do whatever people do with their hands and feet. But is she in a romantic relationship with this parrot? This is something you must decide for yourself. That’s the beauty of art––even low-brow cartoons––the viewer can make whatever they will of the image. Yay for you!

And then we play chess with our dog. Border Collies are thought to be the most intelligent of all dogs so how hard can it be to teach one to play chess? I mean, essentially, it’s just checkers with fancier names for the pieces, right?
