If this cartoon were a movie with a human cast, it would be more gruesome than the whole Saw franchise.

Milt Gross



I am currently enjoying a great book about cartoonist Milt Gross. (See link at right.)

If you watch the embedded cartoon, you'll get a sense of why he was idolized by R. Crumb and the founding artists of Mad magazine for his supreme wackiness.
