See ya in the funny papers

A wry picture of America then and now

I don't know why my dad often said "See ya in the funny papers" before he left to go to work in the morning. I figure it was some sort of generational thing. Anyway, I thought of that as I read this piece that brings up Matt Diffee. Matt is a cartoonist for the New Yorker. Once again, a BJU grad that doesn't match the stereotype. I will say, the guy is funny - I think he may do stand up as well.

There is another cartoonist with BJU ties of whom folks around Greenville may be aware. Of course, he has not maintained the same appreciation for the time he spent here as Matt. Vic Lee, who pens the single panel, Pardon My Planet (appears in The Greenville News), attended BJ Academy back when his parents were on staff at the school.
