Props to my ace sock puppet, Professor Xtos, who directed me to this interview with Berke Breathed, creator of the comic strip Bloom County. Breathed manages to avoid serious answers to just about every question. My hero!

At one point, the interviewer notes that early Bloom County installments reference Star Trek and asks if Breathed was a fan of the original show. Breathed sez:

Oh, don’t go there. Star Trek. It’s like discussing buggy whips. Or it’s been whipped to death by buggy whips. Something. I can’t actually bring myself to see Star Trek again. It’s like trying to discuss the culinary virtues of a loaf of bread found in King Tut’s tomb. Yeck.

Ladies and gentlemen, Berke Breathed! Give him a round of applause!
