BizarroFilter: GoogleFu failing me, very much need to stare into the abyss of my favourite cartoon of all time. Dan Pariro, Bizarro: Coke machine (a "That's Life!" machine, actually) offering such things as "Virtue" "Integrity" etc, but with yellow sticky reading "SOLD OUT" over "Shiny Crap".

This was from prolly a few decades (!) ago, B&W as I recall--not a Sunday feature, but a daily. Found it once on the interwebz aeons ago. You'd think I'd have put it in my "Holy of Holies" folder. Of course not...

Response by poster: Always fun to switch "Headline/Title" with "Tags". :(

Oh well, "That's Life...!"

Dan Piraro is his name. Why don't you ask him? He seems like a nice guy...

Argh, "Truth, Happiness, Honesty and Noisy Shiny Crap" and

"1 - TRUTH





are two versions I've seen from others trying to track this down.

(And even on the ever same site were I tracked it down oh so long ago, to boot!)

Just to get my GoogleFu up to par, HOW did you find it?!?!

Shiny noisy crap on a vending machine--couldn't duplicate the search just now. I think that some random combination of shiny/noisy/crap/Piraro/Bizarro/vending made it pop on Google images waaaaay down in the results. Funny that it's the same site as you originally saw it on, though!
