Flemingtoon: Real Life Funnies

Back in the 70s and 80s, I used to read the Village Voice each week. I thoroughly enjoyed all the features, especially the work of Stan Mack and “Real Life Funnies”. Here’s the scoop on Mack from our friends at Wikipedia:

“Stan Mack is a reporter/cartoonist who pioneered a documentary style of cartooning with his notorious New York comic strip Stan Mack’s Real Life Funnies, which ran in The Village Voice for 20 years.”

The subheading for the strip was “All Dialogue Guaranteed Overheard”.

Inspired by his work, I offer, “Flemingtoon™”, with all dialogue overheard on the streets of Flemington. I, however, do not hear as well as Stan Mack, and cannot make the same guarantee. However, I will assure you that I will make every effort possible to be as accurate as I can be.

This was over heard at the Salsa festival in Flemington. [Sorry for how blurry this is; I am still working on the process of creating the strip, and uploading it on to the blog].

I applaud you, sir. Not many people would have the guts to eavesdrop on private conversations held by individuals in a public meeting place, post their personal discussion on the internet (for thousands to see) in a comic form meant to mock and ridicule their viewpoints, then the very next day scold the Senate for voting in favor of allowing the government to eavesdrop on the private conversations of innocent Americans. It is courage like this that is sorely needed within the halls of power during these dark days.

Yup. The first [posting conversations] is a protected First Amendment right ---it's called 'satire'. And when two people speak loudly in public the law has established there is no expectation of privacy.

The second [electronic evesdropping] is a violation of privacy of phone conversations and emails ---types of communications where there is most definatly the expectation of privacy.
