Happy Birthday, Charles

addamsJanuary 7, 1912, was the birthday of Charles Addams, master of macabre humor.

The Addams Family - 'nuff said (and check the Googel Doodle for today) ... except there's so much more. Here's his most famous, and also one of my favorites.

When I had braces on my teeth in junior high I spent time in the orthodontist's waiting room every couple weeks until it was my turn to be tortured dentally. Being a hipper-than-thou kid. I wouldn't have been caught dead reading the stock of young people's magazines on the coffee tables there -- which largely left "The New Yorker" (except the long articles were pretty much over my head with their rambling). So instead I'd leaf through for the cartoons, which is how I discovered Addams' work, with which I fell in love.

Now I'll have an earworm all day :-)
