Obtuse NUMPS of Stultified Hebetude

Kelly's dialogue is delicious, like cookies and milk.

Oh 🎵 3,679,40 and 1 🎵

Now, where was we, before being interrupted by one of the most divisive and ugly American politiwockle events, which is far from over. Indeed, what would Kelly have made of all this? But also knowing that he reserved Sundays for fun and frivolity for children and children at heart. 

So,  we plunge ahead with our continuity!

A Grand Old Tradition


If You Can't Vote My Way


Back in 1972, the New York Times ran some cartoons for the first time, and Pogo was one of them. Knowing how Kelly could capture politicians at their looniest, you have to wonder how wonderful it would be if Kelly could have taken on this year's looniest/saddest campaign ever. 

Wonderful, because that would mean Kelly was still with us. Sigh.
