When is a lazy gag not a lazy gag?


Four silent penultimate panels:
Bo Nanas by John Kovaleski
Garfield by PAWS inc
Red & Rover by Brian Basset
Brewster Rockit: Space Guy! by Tim Rickard



If a lazy gag points out the fact that it is a lazy gag, is it still a lazy gag?

Yes.

It is when it's that gag. It doesn't recur quite enough to justify a "lazy black panel watch" blog, but it does recur.

By the way, this is a rare instance where the left-facers outnumber the right. Now that I've made that observation, I've got to run. It's the time of day when I count bricks.

At least he admits that he's being lazy.

You gotta give him that.

The only thing worse than a lazy gag where the artist avoids doing any art is the lazy gag where the punchline is that it's a lazy gag.

Meta-humor is only funny the first time.
