    119. Society, You Corpulent Swine!

    (1983). Bix, the goateed beatnik poet from Jay Lynch and Gary Whitney's alternative comic strip/comic book "Phoebe and the Pigeon People," is featured in his second Kitchen Sink button (see also #108). Bix (named after jazz musician Bix Beiderbecke) was wont to rant and this catchy phrase was his most memorable (and often repeated). Bombastic Bix may not seem to be an alter ego to his notably reserved creator, but there is probably more than a little Jay Lynch (one of the underground cartoonists with genuine beatnik roots) in this character. This very same graphic, by the way, appeared on a limited edition silk necktie (ironically the last place you'd expect to find an angry beatnik poet). For the rest of the Phoebe cast, see buttons #107 through 112. 2.25 inch diameter. $2.50.

    One note, for serious button collectors, you may want to read the KSP BUTTON TEXT which explains the numbering systems for identifying the various buttons produced over the last 30 years, or see the COMPLETE KSP BUTTON LIST. The list is VERY long, so be patient while it loads.
