Polly Want a Salad

By Jeremy Meltingtallow

Bizarro is brought to you today by Easter Hangover.

Today’s gag was written by my good friend Bill O’Reilly. He is better known as the open-minded, tough-but-fair purveyor of truth on Fox News. He and I were on the links a while back (we play golf together twice a week) talking about pirates when this carrot/parrot pun came up; we laughed ourselves silly. Okay, it was likely because we were really stoned––Bill loves his weed–– but it’s still a fun gag. Bill and I have been best friends since my severe head injury back in ’98.

And if you believed anything in that first paragraph, you’ve likely forgotten today is April Fool’s Day.

Back to the real world, my actual friend in real life who is not an arrogant, lying, buffoon, Wayno of Pittsburgh, wrote this gag. He quite amusingly explains his process and another little April Fool’s Day gag I planted within this cartoon on his dandy blog.

Now that I think of it, this cartoon would’ve fit nicely into my book of Bizarro pirate cartoons, which can still be found if you search the right cranny.
