Wimpy in the news
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Popeyelife imitates comics 21 Nov 2007 12:14 PM
With uncanny timing, this article in the Asia Times uses J. Wellington Wimpy as a metaphor for some sort of financial-market phenomenon that goes straight over my head. (Via Spurge.)
My life as a Zippy strip.

Zippy

So, this weekend I was working a book convention in Portland. I had copies of Zippy: Walk a Mile in My Muu-Muu in tow (the new Zippy the Pinhead collection by Bill Griffith) and a woman walked by the booth on Saturday, saw Zippy out of the corner of her eye, and made a beeline for it. She declared, "I love Zippy!"

I said to her, "Me, too!" and added, "I'm glad to hear it, I always consider Zippy a good barometer of taste, because it's kind of a polarizing strip."

She looked at me without a hint of irony and said excitedly, "I KNOW!... JUST LIKE BILLY JOEL!"
