Project Balatro #2

Originally published at "PRT Is A Joke" IS A JOKE v.1
Words written with wildcards (***, !!!, etc.) was the way we originally wrote
Ken Avidor, Ken, and Avidor.

*** ****** frequently tsk-tsks people he doesn't like, for being "not nice" or "nasty".

We've previously written about his thang about Michele Bachmann, and his thingie over Mark Olson and chastity, not Bono. But did you know *** worked at something called Weirdo?

[***] was an alumni of PUNK magazeen [sic] and forged his style equally from Kurtzman and Crumb. [***] had some really great moments in 'Weirdo' where he and [cartoonist Peter] Bagge would draw each other beating off to gay porn. He disappeared from underground comix to become a househusband. Unfortunately, his new 'sensitive' side shows in the new stuff. But he's Weiner. Source

"Weiner" appears not to have been a former surname, but rather a monomoniker--a la "Cher"!

It also seems his early art work appeared in that journal of sustainable energy policy, Al Goldstein's Screw. (Thanks to emailer "D" for the tips.)
