    Looks like Bosko hasn’t picked up a toothbrush in those eighty years. Honey couldn’t be pleased about that.

    Corporate identities rarely practice good oral hygiene. Mickey sports no teeth when he serves as a logo.

    That’s pretty cool! Looks like something I’d want to tattoo on a bus stop bench!

    I just got this book. The cover is a painting by Greg Gossel. I really like the Lowbow/ Pop Surrealism art movement, but there are a few artists in this book who just plain suck.
