To Wit: Some Wit

"Pogo" comic strip by Walt Kelly

Love them all and especially the gene pool needing some chlorine.

Have a terrific day and weekend. :)

I've seen some, but some are new, or at least my memory tells me they are new. Quite enjoyable.

I always loved Pogo. Kelly did have a way with words and the pen for drawing.

I do appreciate your wit. Thanks for sharing.
