The Sturgeon General

Periodically I’ve posted the Bizarro Sunday Punnies, always a set of three pun panels. Last Sunday’s (#29) led with one that amused me a lot:

The title is a punning portmanteau: sturgeon (the fish) + Surgeon General (of the U.S.). The Surgeon General gives advice on matters of public health, and at least one SG has campaigned aggressively against cigarette smoking. So then we have the pun on smoking (cigarettes) and smoking ‘curing or preserving (food) by exposure to (wood) smoke’, a procedure often applied to sturgeon flesh.
