The Wit & Sarcastic Wisdom of Honkytonk Sue

 July 7, 2023

   Been revisiting an old flame. In 1977 I was between wives and at the end of my tether in The Old Pueblo. In desperation I sent off a packet of cartoon ideas to Matty Simmons at the National Lampoon.

   Long story short, Matty and the editors at the Lampoon chose this one:

"Most cowboys I know are shockingly cruel, hasty in temper and unbridled in tongue. The rest are not my type."
—Honkytonk Sue

    From the perspective of several decades, I don't think a film could have captured Sue in all her glory unless it was expertly animated.

    Turn that around in your head.
