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.

Here’s our comic for today. It appeared on June 14, 1987, in the strip Barney Google and Snuffy Smith.

Considering that Snuffy Smith and his family are hillbillies in North Carolina (“Hootin’ Holler”), I’m surprised that they very rarely go barefooted. Yet, occasionally, they do, as this strip shows.

This is so true, and so unappreciated.

This comic is from the short-lived strip <Oh, Brother. This one appeared on July 15, 2011.

While it’s not specifically about going barefoot, it does display an attitude (prejudice) we recognize.

Today’s comic is from a rather new strip that was started just about a year and a half ago. The strip is called Francis, from the National Catholic Reporter, and takes a light-hearted look at being the pope.

The strip below is a double, from a year ago, introducing the pope’s personal assistant and cartoon sidekick, Brother Leo. (I included the first one as part of the set-up; that and it was rather funny.)

Unfortunately, in later strips Brother Leo is always shown wearing sandals, which I’m afraid is what most Franciscans have gone to (for some unknown reason, to me).
