keep on truckin'

Busy weekend so only a shorty today. When I have more time, I'm planning on a longer posting or series of postings on underground comics. Just for a little taster here is Robert Crumb's Keep on Truckin'. I read somewhere that some copyright lawyers (let it never be said that this blog does not address matters of law) pointed out to him that this pic was used so often in violation of copyright that if he sued, he could make - to borrow a phrase - 'seriously offensive' money.
His reply? Words to the effect of 'nah, can't be bothered'.
Much credit to him for that.
Oh by the way - the Curious Black Cat - to whom Hat Tip mentioned the council who changed the name of Spotted Dick in their canteen to Spotted Richard in a comment on the great Haribo copulating citrus fruit shock horror story. It's actually true. It was Flintshire County Council. A spokesperson helpfully explained that this was done following 'unwelcome and childish comments'

A spotted Richard

Did you ever see the Crumb documentary? He's a seriously odd fellow.
