The Call of the Wild

Today is the birthday of Klondike adventurer, socialist, author of rip-roaring yarns and selective racist (he called for the genocide of the Chinese) Jack London. If you know nothing about him you should read his Wikipedia entry. Love him or loathe him you can't help but marvel at his splendidly lurid career. I've decided to adopt him as one of Bad Penny Blues's official mascots, placing him in such distinguished company as Mae West, Oscar Wilde and Betty Boop.
