Moderately Confused (10/16/10)

Comics are supposed to be stylized; that’s what makes them so much fun. Sometimes, in the spirit of stylization, cartoonists decide to draw characters without crucial body parts (like Cathy) or with exceptionally exaggerated body parts (like Charlie Brown). I’ve read the comics for years, so I’m used to these tropes, but today’s Moderately Confused still caught me off guard. Maybe it’s the size of this man’s head or the relatively realistic detail around his eyes and ears (or even his nostrils), but it struck me as deeply unsettling that he has no mouth. He also has a brain that looks curiously like an intestine, but that’s another issue entirely.
