Things to Know About Andy Capp
About Andy Capp:
I think "Andy Capp" is hilarious, but it knocks
political-correctness in the teeth. Andy Capp is not, in any way,
a role model for anybody. He's lazy, shiftless, and
unemployed. Andy always gets drunk and chases other women.
Him and his wife, Flo, beat each other up regular. He avoids
paying any bills. Andy Capp is, quite literally, one of the worst
people on the planet. However, he is presented to us in a most
light-hearted manner. Everyone around Andy takes him for what he
is. Knowing someone like Andy Capp in real life would NOT be a
pleasure, but seeing him in comic strip form is alright. This
strip was Smythe's way of poking fun at the "losers" in society.
