Washington Post, August 17, 1929. Rehearsing for his act and doing a little advance publicity work too, I’ll warrant. If I’d been this guy’s counsel, I’d have thrown Leviticus 11:22 in the judge’s face: “Even these of them ye may eat; the locust after his kind, and the bald locust after his kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the grasshopper after his kind.”
I’ve been delving into the circus wild man theme lately on a account of I just finished reading William Lindsay Gresham’s Nightmare Alley, which I heartily recommend though not to the timid. Sixty-four years after publication, it’s still a seriously disturbing toilet-crawl. Makes Jim Thompson look like Beatrix Potter.

  1. The apostrophe in the headline is because they didn’t have room for “Photos”.

    (I can tell because of the taste of some of the pixels.)

    The judge declared, “I find you guilty of eating Photoshoppers, in the first degree, with an alpha channel. You will be sentenced to ten years of eating nothing but MS Paint users… who use Comic Sans.” “NOOOOOOOOOO!”

    On an unrelated topic regarding the same topic, Leviticus also says we can’t eat mice. Then how do you explain the Mouse Nuggets they sell at Disneyland?

    They used to sell them at CostCo, but I think now they’re back to being exclusive to Disneyland. I had some once. Turns out mouse tastes like chicken, only worse.

    There’s a legend about the placement of the trash cans at Disneyland. Walt bought a sack of mouse nuggets and started walking. A trash can was installed where he vomited each nugget.
