I want to go to the top of a really tall building, take a leak, finish, zip up, and then have my pee hit the ground. I want my entire pee to be airborne. Man I love beer.
Comics corrupt America's Youth! etc. etc.
comes from an article at Damn Interesting
, which is highly recommended for killing time at work. The Setting:
1954 Senate Subcommittee to Investigate Juvenile DelinquencyThe Players:
- William Gaines, publisher of Tales From The Crypt, MAD Magazine, and other Subversive Titles.
- Senator Estes Kefauver, Morally Upright Legislator
KEFAUVER (holding up an especially gory EC Comic title): "This seems to be a man with a bloody ax holding a woman's head up, which has been severed from her body. Do you think that is in good taste?"
GAINES: "Yes sir, I do for the cover of a horror comic. A cover in bad taste might be defined as holding the head higher so that the blood could be seen dripping from it."
KEFAUVER: "You've got blood coming out of her mouth"
GAINES: "A little."
