Being For The Benefit of Mr. Guillen
In recognition of the White Sox’ trip to the World Series, here’s a trip-down-South-Side-Memory-Lane link from Barnacle Press’ online archive of vintage comic strips. I was pleased to find some selections from “You Know Me, Al,” a 1920s comic strip by Ring Lardner about the fictional Jack Keefe, who is sold to the White Sox.
I think this one is my favorite. “Well, I ain’t payin’ no eight dollars a week to be near your mother” has to rank with the greatest pick-up lines of all time.
