Bizarro (6/4/09)

06-04-09 (Bizarro)

I one stood at the base of a staircase inside a Bass Pro Shop for 20 minutes staring at a large aquarium filled with colorful fish. One of the reasons fish are so fascinating to me is that they don’t approximate anything we see on land. Dogs and cats (and even zoo animals) seem to have personalities that mimic our own, but there’s something alien, and therefore very intriguing, about our aquatic cousins. That’s why the couple in this strip seems so bizarre. Have you ever seen an angry fish before? How about a forlorn fish? Me neither, which is why it’s more than a little strange to read those emotions into the realistically drawn fish in this strip.
