Surreal humor, which we pay homage to in this 20th installment of the CallBoyZ comic strip, is based on unpredictability and a violation of reason.
- Researching how to portray surreal humor in today’s strip, I needed to hit these conditions in three panels:
- Bizarre concepts paired or juxtapositions
- Non-sequitur or illogical chain of events
- Irrational story
I should have gone instead with Casey’s new boyfriend, Kip, creating a holographic illusion of the City of Romance in the office and messing with everybody’s heads to break Cordy apart. What about Gordo, Inc. experimenting on their own employees with a hallucinogenic in the water cooler (too realistic?).
Yes, ridiculous and unlikely in Monty Python-esque surreal sort of way. Happy Strip #20!
