Hat and Shades

Pilots turn up fairly often in comic strips. Gary Larson has them gleefully inducing turbulence. The stereotype is so clear that there's a lot of humour to be gleaned from a few twists. And of course everyone is more interested in something that is about themselves, so of course I notice pilot jokes. I like the way "pilot" is so clearly defined here by two accessories.

That's Pearls Before Swine by Stephen Pastis.
