For St. Patrick’s

Passed on by Horton Copperpot, this day-appropriate Bizarro cartoon from back in 2012 (which I thought I’d posted, but apparently not):

(If you’re puzzled by the odd symbols in the cartoon — Dan Piraro says there are 2 in this strip — see this Page.)

St.Patrick famously (but fabulously) drove the snakes from Ireland, thus leaving the snake-haired Medusa bald (as above) and without her powers. Bad history for a blind date.

Note from Wikipedia:

In Greek mythology Medusa (… Μέδουσα “guardian, protectress”) was a monster, a Gorgon, generally described as a winged human female with a hideous face and living venomous snakes in place of hair. Gazers on her face would turn to stone
