I thought of a joke about Americans, media and advertising by the great underground comic artist Gilbert Shelton today.
In the joke from The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers comics, not-too-swift Fat Freddy watches a TV commercial - "Drink Tree Frog Beer and you'll be handsome and have lots of girlfriends" - and then rushes out to buy a six-pack. Swallows it hook, line and sinker! The following photos remind me of Fat Freddy, as well as that joke.
Object lesson here: whatever one's political views, do NOT forget spell-check, EVER (and bear in mind, Fat Freddy couldn't even spell the word naked. . . it was always "NEKKID").
Although, come to think of it, there was a "Tomas Jefferson" who played timbales and rhythm logs in Tito Puente's orchestra.
