Who can explain Jeff Keane's compulsion to show his alter-ego's naked butt? http://joshreads.com/?p=4585 A psychiatrist? @JustinFowler? Who?A psychiatrist is clearly in order, but here are a few theories:
- As previously discussed on this fine blog, Jeff Keane is using the family cartoon as an outlet for his repressed exhibitionist--and possibly oedipal--urges.
- Jeff Keane views his alter-ego's ass as some sort of Platonic ideal by which we should assess all other asses.
- Jeff Keane is hoping that gratuitous nudity will distract readers from noticing his cartoon's obvious lack of artistic quality.
- Jeff Keane is attempting to appeal to a new demographic.
- Jeff Keane usually goes pantsless and is just trying to be true to life.
