In the early 80s, some friends and I became obsessed with cartoon character Nancy and her pal Sluggo. Or, more specifically, obsessed with the zen simplicity (or was it idiocy? no, it was definitely sublime genius) of artist Ernie Bushmiller. Buddhism and psychedelia have always bubbled as background interests. These days I’m into ukulele.
Glyph Jockey created this video based on what Mark Frauenfelder calls the the greatest Nancy panel ever drawn (the posting of which inspired one feller to get a tatoo of the same panel).

One Reply to “No”
I was wholly unaware that Sluggo could transcend the Matrix.
A “No” uttered from deepest conviction is better and greater than a “Yes” merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble.
