    Boy, I haven’t thought of the Smilin’ Face of Bob Dobbs in 20 years. Thanks, Cory.

    Like cigars, I thought you weren’t supposed to inhale with tobacco pipes.

    That cutout, sirs, is not Bob! Quite possibly that is the Anti-Bob or one of his minion. Look at the fear of exposure in his eyes and the lame attempt at a confident smile. Clearly this is an attempt of the Slackless to corrupt the one true church.

    Blessed Bob, full of grace,
    grant me slack,
    so I may slow my pace.

    -abs worships at the Head of Bob, and believes all unbelievers should give him their slack….

    My guess is this is a tribute or a ripp of from the Bas Kist Lino cut portrait of his friend M.C. Escher done in the 1920′s – see p20 M.C. Escher his life and complete graphic work. Abrade 1981.


    I was a pipe smoker for years. To this day I can’t even see a pipe without an intense craving to light up and inhale deeply.
