Mickey Free Sees Red And More Fun With Footnotes

 March 23, 2023

  Rain is clearing out and man, is it green!

Fun with Footnotes

   I came out to the studio this morning to find some typical footnotes from my vast collection of stuffy historical tomes so I could parody and mock them. Unfortunately, or fotunately, I picked up a book that is chock full of footnotes that are already parodies of footnotes, like this one:

"Like German archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann when discovering the ancient city of 'Troy' in Turkey during the 1870s, some researchers discover what they wish to find, rather than what is. This path has often been taken by various historians when attempting to solve the riddle of Henry McCarty's origins. I shall not be adding my name to the list."
—James B. Mills, End Notes on Chapter One of "Billy the Kid: El Bandido Simpatico"

   So, mocking footnotes is going to be a tad harder than I originally expected.

   Meanwhile, took a pass at a photo that John McWilliams found and is now in the Anthony Sapienza collection:

Daily Whip Out: "Deadly Blue Gaze"
And, I also took another run at this cat:

Daily Whip Out: "Mickey Free Sees Red"

"He wasn't very tall, but he was big in all the ways that matter."

—James Young, describing his friend Mickey Free
