Bizarro is brought to you today by Kickin’ It Old School.

It’s election season in the U.S. again, somehow, and the usual crop of ne’er do wells is up and running. I used to follow politics closely but in recent years I’ve thought better of it and I’ve been happier for the decision. Accordingly, I thought this cartoon would be a good lesson for any alien species considering taking over the planet. (Side note: Can you spot your Grand Imperial Exalted Jazz Poobah in this cartoon? If so, put a few bucks in the tip jar at right to celebrate your cleverness!)

Modern sci-fi movies and such tend to put the onus on aliens to be equipped with some auto-translation technology that allows them to speak whatever language the earthlings are speaking, but in the early days of sci-fi TV and films, aliens just spoke English and nobody ever questioned how they knew it. This cartoon, of course, is about that phenomena from the aliens’ point of view.
