Bizarro is brought to you today by Cross-dressing in the 19th Century.

Even though Jazz Pickles tend to be smarter than the average rabble, not all of us are good at punctuation, spelling, and grammar. But surely you can see how the comma in the expression on the apron at left changes everything. By the way, if you are blissfully unaware of idiotic meme products, “Kiss the Cook” has long been a standard saying on novelty aprons. Although, once 89 million of them have sold, they are anything but a novelty.

I’m going to send this cartoon to my daughter, Krapuzar, who is a professional languagy person. She owns and operates ProofNinja.com, where you can have anything you’ve written improved for just pennies. Try it out, it will make you look smarter in writing. She likes to post amusing grammar and spelling stuff on ProofNinja’s FB page, the logo and cover photo for which was designed by yours, truly. (Yes, that last comma belongs there but is rarely used.)


Our next cartoon is a funny bit of parent/child interaction from the Reapers. It is the result of a collaboration between myself and my friend and colleague, Dan McConnell. We call each other the “other Dan.” Seems logical to us. Here’s more of his damn stuff.

As an added bit of mild interest today, here is the strip version of the Kiss cartoon, which I had to publish sideways to make the joke legible in newspapers. I’ve done this only a handful of times before. bz strip 02-08-14
