L'iL Abner's Father's Day Suggestion



Al Capp, for all of his much vaunted political satire (from both left and right depending on the year) was all about the crass commercialism that is "selling out." Thus we have Abner and Daisy Mae appearing in ads of all kinds over the years (along with, of course, Fearless Fosdick!) Here, for example, is a timely look at L'il Abner and family for Father's Day. Seriously, what could be a better Father's Day gift than Abner's underwear? While we're here, let's throw in yet another L'il Abner ad, this one for tasty Orange Crush. Forget all about that Kickapoo Joy Juice stuff. Orange Crush is the "offishul" drink o' Dogpatch! MMMM-MMMM Good!
