    Maynard G. Krebs could easily be regarded as the Founding Father of the OWS movement.

    The older generation will remember him from the black & white TV show as the beatnik friend of Dobie Gillis.

    Who had a severe physiological reaction whenever the word "work" was said in his presence.

    I used to love that show. It's funny. At the age I was when this was on TV, Dobie looked like an older kid, his parents looked like they were ancient and Zelda just looked a little psychotic.

    Now they all look young.

    Maynard was always broke but the thought getting a job scared the heck out of him.

    His goal in life was to sit around all day and beat on a set of bongos.

    Sounds exactly like the OWS protesters. :cool:

    Krebs would not be funny today. No one would even get the humor.

    In those days Maynard was considered extremely odd and a one of a kind goof ball.

    Sadly, today we have a large segment of society who can self identify with him.

    I am sure most of the OWS loons have never heard of Maynard G. Krebs.

    Otherwise, they would have already anointed him as the Founding Father of the OWS movement.

    beatnik = hippie = OWS protester = retard

    Kind of reminds me of those evolution picture charts that depicts the progression from lower primate to humanoid. :lol:
