Here’s a new comic. It is from the strip “Yenny Lopez”, by Puerto Rican artist David Alvarez. Here’s the description of the strip from GoComics:

Follow the daily life of Yenny Lopez, a Latina teen girl who lives with her mother Yunissa, her sea turtle Buke and a fast talking-iguana called Zacha at a modest wooden house complex in Villa Los Kubos, Puerto Rico.

Yenny dreams of becoming a famous model, but her big, giant feet stand in the way. In the meantime, she studies at the Carizzio Modeling College with high hopes of seeing her dream become a reality.

But if you have “big, giant feet”, you might as well use them.

This strip appeared last month.

Complaints of bare feet being unsanitary around food would make sense only if this were regularly true.

I’ve mentioned before having older adults tell me how they used to run around barefoot all summer as kids, but that they could never do that now. It’s because they have let their feet atrophy.

Today’s comic is a classic. It’s from Pogo by Walt Kelly, and was drawn specifically for Earth Day in 1971.

He originally drew a comic for the first Earth Day in 1970. This 1971 version is similar, but for the second on he added the piece that makes it particularly poignant for barefooters.

This is also the origin of the famous tagline, “We have met the enemy . . . and he is us.”

Our comic today is from the strip “Nest Heads”, by John Allen. The strip appeared on June 20, 2013.

I suspect it gives an accurate portrayal of what way too many people think when it comes to going barefoot.
