Pogo's Unappreciated Humor

Walt Kelly's Pogo strip of August 6, 1955 starts out with a possibly serious complaint about laughing at the merely cute versus the truly humorous, then descends quickly into an atrocious pun and an old joke missing its punch line. Whatever Walt Kelly's theory of humor, I think it's a great strip, and I think it's aged rather nicely. It is my opinion that the eBay buyer did quite well here.
