For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge

For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge

Comic transcript

TRANSCRIPTION COURTESY OF JOSEPH HOUK - [1434; England] (CW, holding a camera) "Some people want to check out all the legendary works of art in person... Some people want to tour the Seven Wonders of the World... But not you, Matt... No, you want landmarks for your own little 'History of the Vulgarities' Tour! I can't believe I'm taking a picture of this sign..." (MG, next to the sign for GROPECUNT LANE) "Hey, as legend has it, that's where the word originated!"
