18. I Married R. Crumb...

...well, not me, but Aline Kominsky-Crumb did, and she admitted it in an article with that title in Newsweek, March 10 2005:

<Interviewer> In a recent interview he described himself as an "ineffectual individual," which is surprising for someone with such a prodigious output. Do you think he could survive without a woman like yourself in his life?

<Aline> No, he wouldn't. He'd be dead without me. [Laughs.] When I met him his life was such a wreck. He's really a soft guy. He just wants to be liked too much. When he says ineffectual, he just can't say no to people. There are always parasites ready to jump on somebody like that. So I'm the bad cop.

<Interviewer> He's always been criticized for being misogynistic and racist. You live with him. Is there any truth to that?

<Aline> Not at all. People just don't get satire. He pokes fun at every single stereotype in our society equally. He touches all the tender points of people's innate racism and sexism and ethnocentric attitudes which are all there just under the surface. When he does a thing about the "The Family That Lays Together Stays Together," anyone who thinks that he's proposing that people should indulge in incest would have to be pretty dumb.
