Pokey the Penguin

Jump to: navigation, search

Pokey the Penguin is a surrealistic online comic strip, which began in 1998 and continues to be updated (albeit sporadically) to this day. The individual strips have little or no apparent logic on first glance, are filled with corrections (crossed-out words, occasionally images scribbled over), and lack of evident punch lines.
