Bizarro (5/11/09)

05-11-09 (Bizarro)

I don’t know which is funnier, the God-awful pun that serves as the punchline for this strip or the fact that these lions are standing on their hind legs. For a moment, I saw these two as seventies glam rockers with long hair and unruly beards, and imagined them planning an over-the-top stage show complete with twelve-string guitars and pyrotechnics. But then I started thinking about the strip’s reference to professional sports and was reminded of the glories of spring and of its magical confluence of basketball playoffs, hockey playoffs and the start of the major league baseball season. And even though I’m not a hockey fan, I am excited that the Chicago Blackhawks are playing at this moment and have a chance to move on to the next round of the Stanley Cup playoffs with a win. Chicago and Vancouver are tied at 3 in the third period as I type this; hopefully something will happen that inspires some water cooler conversation at the office tomorrow.
