Dan Piraro’s Bizzaro

Dan Piraro is a cartoonist, famous for his Bizzaro panel which often includes themes incorporating veganism and animal rights, like this one of pig tofu statues. He became a vegan in 2002 and has devoted a section of his website to ‘Animal Stuff’ detailing the reasons for becoming a vegan. The website features a hilarious “Talking Pig Video.” A Sherlock-Holmes-like pig narrates the cartoon: “Are human beings natural meat-eaters? Let’s find out…” There is also a stunningly beautiful drawing of birds rescuing a pig from a factory farm.

Snargleplexon asks “What good is thinking about compassion if you don’t get some humor out of it?”

  • Knock knock! “Who’s there?” A chicken! “A chicken who?” A chicken who is so glad you stopped calling her an “it.”
  • I’ve got this great chicken recipe. What we do is take veggies, eat those, and leave the chickens alive and in peace.
  • What do you call bite-sized sausage snacks? Feces Pieces.
  • Someone should stuff a hot veggie burger and some fries in a bag and sell it as a Happier Meal.

Lola Lollipop by Lara Matthews

Lara Matthews says:
My journey eating began at a very young age. I grew up in Maine where I ate almost anything, but mostly chicken. I fancied double cheeseburgers with only mustard from McDonald’s and the original recipe chicken from KFC.
Years later, I moved to Los Angeles and became a pescatarian (eating only fish) largely out of compassion for animals and hypocritically unable to make that same compassionate leap for fish. I ate a lot of sushi and thoroughly enjoyed it until I made the mistake of thinking.
With a diet in constant flux and a myriad of incongruous thoughts, I decided  to channel all of that madness and created the Lola Lollipop comic strip. While researching and compiling my book, Lola Lollipop: Animals Are Evil, I was inspired to go vegan. I hope my comic strips can provide similar inspiration.

You can see more of Lara Matthews’ delightful and thought-provoking comics at her Lola Lollipop website. She has just published her first book, Lola Lollipop: Animals are evil: Comic strips and quotes about vegetarianism, evil farm animals, and diabolical sea creatures.
