I've been proselytizing about that this year -- I always include it in the Christmas carol books I make, right next to Deck the Halls, so I had to explain where it came from at John Olson's caroling party, and when Mike & Kerri's church young adult group went caroling at an old age home to retired nuns. (We sang it at the former gathering, but not the latter, alas.)

And don't forget the other verses!

My dad always sings this. I've never seen the original comic strip. Thank you. :-)

Plate of shrimp.

Odd, me too on replying that my dad sings it every year. Grew up hearing it and know the Pogo lyrics better than the actual ones. I can remember being a little kid and asking him what Boston Charlie was. I think Pogo and Krazy Kat were for his generation what Bloom County and Calvin & Hobbes was for ours. Happy memories.
