I was sitting on the side of the road taking a break when two plain-dressed women pulled up in their car. They said their school was selling hoagies, but they gave me one for free, along with a copy of the famous Chick Publication "This Was Your Life!", seen in the picture open to my favorite page.
I thought you liked onions on your hoagies.
Maybe the hoagie itself is protesting onions.
The religion gets more bizarre the further you go west.
Wait . . . whispering is a sin!? How am I supposed to try cases if I can’t whisper into my clients’ ears? This tract discriminates against lawyers. I’m suing.
Jack Chick is a true American oddity. He’s perhaps the most published cartoonist/comic stripper in history (more than Charles Schulz with Peanuts), he’s apparently some sort of billionaire, has a publishing factory near los angeles with like 50 employees, and he’s never been seen or photographed. There’s only grainy photos of him from high school yearbooks.
I love Chick Tracts! I have a bunch of them, my favorite being ‘Happy Hour’ (http://www.chick.com/reading/tracts/0028/0028_01.asp)
I’m trying to attach my favorite panel from that one. We’ll see if it works.
…That didn’t work. Here’s a link: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v147/fyrejade/youtouchusandillcutyoudaddy.jpg
Obviously, the sandwiches without onions didn’t sell. Good luck for you! Oh, but no onions. :-(
I live in the Chicagoland area. I have never heard of Chick tracts. Is it an East coast thing?
As a lifelong resident of the South, I grew up seeing these little booklets. But I never knew a darn thing about them other than I found them alternately hilarious and creepy. I remember seeing the one pictured when I was a teenager. Nice to know that some things never change…I think.
They are both hilarious and creepy.
