    249. Friends of Sluggo (2002).

    We know nothing about the Bushmiller Society despite offering button #248 above. We know even less about Friends of Sluggo. We have heard that it is a radical group that splintered off of the B.S. under a cloud. We have heard persistent rumors that cartoonist Frank Miller (Batman: The Dark Knight) is, inexplicably, linked with the splinter. After Miller was "outed" in Denis Kitchen's Too Much Coffee Man Interview and on the cover of Too Much Coffee Man #15, he wrote a curious letter in the following issue, and reportedly created Friends of Sluggo as a "purer" form of Bushmillerism, itself a fringe crypto-religion based on the creator of the world's dumbest comic strip, Nancy.

    True believers scoff at this put-down and assure us that "there is dumb and then there is sublime," implying that Nancy is "sublime," but we remain skeptical. All we know is that some pretty rough-looking characters "asked" us to sell these buttons and we are doing so without wanting to know too much about industry politics, religion or cults. And if you seek similar esoterica, we refer you to buttons #'d #8-B, 128, 129, 134, 156, 248 and 273.)

    1.25 inch diameter. $3.00

    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.
