Implied nudity

June 28, 2009

The strip on today isn’t about Bo being nude but I figured I’d point it out since public nudity seems to be one of my reoccurring “themes.”

Thursday is the new Sunday – and the NUDE Sunday

February 5, 2009


The nation’s nightmare is finally over. After two long, nail-biting weeks of not knowing what day the rerunning Bo color Sundays strips would show up (or if they would at all), they have returned! On a Thursday! Tradition!!

The Sunday up on today is one of my favs. I just realized that part of the premise of this strip is one I used a number of times. No, it’s not Bo and his nudity, but that one of the garden-variety nutballs that Bo meets considers their house, yard or block they live on to be of much larger importance than it is. In this case – a sovereign country.

The drop panel above is a standard head-peek coupled with that ol’ comedy chestnut, wearing a barrel while naked. (A question: Did this ever happen in the real world or is it just a device invented for cartoons and movies?)

Nakedidity Scorecard – 1

November 22, 2008

The Bo/Mrs. Yannes/kiddie pool strip up on today is a prime example of my use of nudity as gag fodder. Most of this comes from the fact that Bo is nude, but sometimes it would be the crazy people he meets who are in some sort of state of undress (cuz that’s the kind of thing crazy people would do). Did I dip into the nudity well too often? Well, I don’t know – but I did do it a number of times.

Hey, I have an idea! Let’s count together. Pull out your Official Bo Nanas Nakedidity Scorecard (TM) and put a big “1” on it. Every time a NG (nudity gag) shows up on we’ll change the number together. Won’t that be fun? And if you notice a NG before I post about it, I’ll send you a little prize. (What will the prize be? Haven’t the slightest. I just thought of it while I was typing.) The first person to e-mail me wins. So keep your eyes, like your bananas, peeled.
