Bizarro is brought to you today by The Road to the Election.
As a vegan, I enjoy a good salad bar from time to time, though I don’t frequent them. They are pretty boring, for sure. For some reason, the idea of what it would take to be a really amazing salad bar popped into my mind and this joke followed shortly thereafter. I’m very happy with the way the veggie characters turned out in the drawing. Also, along with having NINE secret symbols hidden therein, there is a Jazz Pickle, too, which isn’t one of my official symbols. Give yourself 75 bonus points if you find all nine, plus the pickle.
BIZARRO BASEMENT: Here, from 1998, is a fun look at the history of gun control. I’ve always enjoyed Chris Rock’s famous notion about gun control, that we shouldn’t outlaw guns but instead, make bullets really expensive. He went on to say that if bullets cost $5,000 apiece, there would be no innocent bystanders. I don’t remember if he said that before or after this cartoon was published––and they are two different premises, of course––but I wrote this cartoon as a satire of the NRA bumper sticker: If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.
