This week in Bizarro Dan Piraro has been experimenting with using the same punchline in every comic strip. (These actually appeared about three weeks ago but they are only now becoming available online.)
The scenario is always the same: at a funeral, two mourners are viewing the body. The quote is: "He/she looks so natural." The only thing that varies is the appearance of the coffin depending on the job of the deceased (the Invisible Man's funeral, magician's assistant's funeral, etc.) At first I thought it was carelessness on the part of either Piraro or his editor, but as the week went on it got funnier and funnier. I don't recall a comic artist doing something like this before. Hope you enjoy.
