Founding Relationship Stink Island Crow Finger

(To make this cartoon as big as the constitution, click on Washington’s nose.)

Bizarro is brought to you by The Politics of Fear.

I wanted to publish this cartoon closer to July 4 because it would be in keeping with the theme of the holiday but it didn’t come to me until too late. Still, the 15th isn’t so bad and the constitution wasn’t signed on the 4th anyway (that was the Declaration of Independence), so who cares?

Here’s a very odd cartoon that I won’t bother explaining. There is no special information you need to know to understand this cartoon, it just is what it is. If you don’t get it, don’t worry about it. I suspect most of my Jazz Pickles will find it amusing for the right reasons.

A friend recently told me he didn’t think my cartoons are as surreal as they used to be. I hope he sees this one. :o)


This was a really difficult one to fit into the strip format so I cut it up into scenes. I’m not sure how well it works, but it was my only option.





If you’ve never been in a car with one of those godawful, stench-filled pine tree cut-outs that are supposed to make your car smell “good,” you’re probably reading this from a hut in a jungle somewhere. This cartoon is a simple switcharoo, a time-honored technique in cartooning.





Another age-old member of the Cartoon Hall of Cliche Premises is the desert island. Here, I make it intensely self referential and squeeze just a bit more humor out of the category. Or, at least, I thought so.







A scarecrow is so named because it is designed to scare crows. So what is an object designed to scare scarecrows called? Now you know.








This last cartoon needs no explanation but that’s not my style. If you’re marrying a traditional cartoon character, to avoid this kind of embarrassing moment during your wedding be prepared for a three-fingered hand and agree well ahead of the ceremony upon which finger you will place the ring. And be sure the ring is huge. Three-fingered cartoon characters almost always have proportionately large, chubby, sausage fingers.

Want to be my friend? If so, buy my new book. If you don’t want to spend 10 bucks on yourself, read it carefully without bending the pages then give it as a gift.
