Ring Lardner
"Ring looked like 'Lo, the Poor Indian.' He had that kind of a face, very sad and dead-pan. Of course, he was very different inside. The funniest thing I remember was when someone asked him to go out one night. He said, 'I can't do it. It's the children's night out and I have to stay in with the nurse.' "

You know who's the spitting image of Ring Lardner? Dan Clowes, the cartoonist. Or he was when he had hair.
