Remember when I was the only person on the internet who liked Nancy and Sluggo?

So pal Dorian gave me my Christmas gift last weekend…or should I say “gifts,” because he bestowed upon me the Nancy and Sluggo double-whammy.

First was the immortal “Sluggo Is Lit” image, the official print in a handsome frame that I shot at an awkward angle to minimize glare and to (mostly) keep myself from appearing in the reflection:

And second, a pin featuring America’s hardest-working wastrel, Sluggo Smith:

These are great items (inspired by the wonderful new version of the Nancy strip by Olivia James), and if you want to be as cool as I am, you can get your own N&S merch right here.

Anyway, in exchange I gave to Dorian a copy of this Tumbleweeds paperback wrapped in a Burger King bag.

That’s almost as good, right?

    So, I am apparently the sole person who thinks the funniest line in that strip is actually “…and that’s why I’m only wearing snowsuits from now on!”

    That pin is perfect but your gift in a Burger King bag….priceless.

    I saw John Goodman with a shaved head on Letterman maybe six or seven years ago, and he made a joke about looking like Sluggo, and I thought to myself, “I hope Mikester sees this!” (That thought was compounded when he later made an off-hand reference to looking like Lex Luthor and threatened the bottle city of Kandor). No matter how lit Sluggo and neu-Nancy get, you will always be the person I most identify Sluggo with.

    Tumbleweeds, in our out of a Burger King bag, is always a good gift. Lotsa Luck forever!
