It Doesn't Make Sense

Lots of times, you'll see a cartoon where two phrases are connected and the cartoon illustrates the joining.
Like "candy corn flakes" or "guinea pig latin" or "clay pigeon toed" or "jumping jack in the box." Some, unlike my examples, are quite clever.

But this one, "bermuda triangle shorts" doesn't work. The joke is cute ~ his underwear disappears when it's inside his bermuda triangle shorts ~ but the phrase is wrong. It has to be "word" "keyword" "word" like "box office building."

So it doesn't work as a normal joke.

But I still like Speedbump.  And it's my Saturday t-cartoon for a reason which I shall reveal tomorrow.  Stay tooned!
