Bizarro!


While I was wasting my time with freelance work 25 years ago, Dan Piraro was busy getting his wonderful strip "Bizarro" into daily syndication. Yesterday's Bizarro featured this heartwarming, ingeniously extrapolated family scene, with an almost-recognizable character representing the newest generation of Gagas.

Dan is up for this swell award, and I'm guessing he's taking it home with him and deservedly so. A lesser, lazier cartoonist would've thought up "Baby Googoo" and quit early for the day.

I saw that on Sunday and knew it had to be a shout out.

And just what has the Uh-Oh Baby been up to lately?

Don't give your concession speech YET!

Yeah, Dan Piraro is great, and "Bizarro" is great, but didn't both he and Pastis LOSE last year? Maybe he's the Susan Lucci of the Ruebens...
