Wonderful Cartoons Provide Food for Thought...

This is a wonderful video compilation of Dan Piraro's vegan and animal rights-themed cartoons from his syndicated cartoon panel Bizarro. Born in 1958, Piraro had been an artist and musician for years and began drawing Bizarro in 1985. Like Gary Larson's enormously popular cartoon panel The Far Side, Bizarro often incorporated surreal or dark or edgy themes. By 2006, 250 newspapers were regularly running Bizarro, so the cartoon was getting out to a wide audience. Piraro has long considered himself to be a liberal with progressive politics, and in 2002 he became a vegan. Veganism and animal rights issues are frequently incorporated into his cartoons. When you watch this video, you'll see a true artist - and a true humanitarian - at his best.
