Life Imitates Art Imitates Life On The Dragon

Above: James Thurber New Yorker cartoon, circa 80 years ago.  When this cartoon idea came in, the Editor said "Let
Thurber tinker with it.  His people don't bleed."

Touche indeed!  As a commenter said, "The cliche is strong with this one."

And this one, too.

"Where is this dragon you speak of?"  (Killboy's excellent caption, not mine.)

"Knee Dragon" (on a t-shirt).

Nesting dolls: a dragon draggin' his knee on the Dragon...

A more charitable approach to touche: the Reverend Walter preaches the word in the non-denominational Church of the
Everlasting Hold Up.  "Yea, though I pass through the Valley of the Little Tennessee, I will fear no car club weekend.
For their etiquette is with us; their pulloffs and my acknowledging wave or honk, they comfort me."  Preach it,
Brother Walter!  Can I get an Amen!?!?

Bottom line: love the road (it ain't hard).  What's the point of art, or beauty?  Art or beauty.
