"I Realize That This Satire Was Probably Unintentional On Your Part"

Online for your perusal: the FBI file of Li'l Abner creator Al Capp, from his early days allegedly consorting with communists to his later days allegedly exposing himself to college girls. By that time, an agent notes, he had "exhibited a strong personal effort to support law and order, and expose radical elements."

    "I Realize That This Satire Was Probably Unintentional On Your Part"

    If it is unintentional, can it be satire?

  • Suki||

    According to Old Mexican's lesson in chaos theory, yes, eventually.

    What Jesse means is unintenional self-satire--something he secretly fears.

    No danger of that for you, huh, Edward?

    Al was the greatest cartoonist who ever lived. What if there had been an FBI hounding Salvador Dali?

  • Suki||

    They would not do that to someone sponsored by the CIA ;)

  • Wind Rider||

    Looking through the correspondence between Capp and Hoover, looks like he had a bit of fun poking the old queen.

    allegedly exposing himself to college girls

    What's the success rate on that sort of thing? Someone here must have researched that.

    I'm guessing pretty low unless it's a big schlong and a not-fat body.

    That's all I was doing, officer: "research."

  • College Guy||

    I thought exposing yourself to college girls was how you get laid?

    Dry humping is so sixth grade...
