Crumb’s Thumb

The Robert Crumb photo-gallery never fails to entertain, but this one really had me laughing out loud (refuses to use the acronym):

Crumb’s son Jesse (pictured right):

This is like 10 or more years ago. Pop and I had to thumb it down to San Francisco. At this time I hitchhiked everywhere. Pop had a story about doing this exact thing in his youth. So we did it again. He made the thumb. I still have it. No one picked us up… it took hours… ahhh, that kind of freedom is… intoxicating.

    Took me a day and a night, but now I’m actually getting your first comment Bob: Manny the Camper, right? Right?
