07-19-09 (Bizarro)

I can discern two history lessons from this strip, both of which strike me as funny. Lesson Number One: today’s fisherman is so fat and out of shape that he’s only able to catch tiny fish and is therefore satisfied with a punier haul. Lesson Number Two: yesterday’s fisherman was so skilled that he caught gigantic fish every time he set out. His family gorged themselves on these fish, leading to our current obesity epidemic. Maybe both lessons are present at the same time, each one strengthening the other.
