I Can See Clearly Now…

Happy New Year!

Shelagh made this joke when she saw her ophthalmologist recently. I’m not above “borrowing” a joke from my wife. But if I’m the only cartoonist to make a 20/20 vision joke I will be pleasantly shocked. But what the heck. I still had fun doing this.

Art by Vince Colletta Studio in the story “Teach Me, My Love” in FIRST KISS #29, 1962.

Scene: Man has removed a woman's eyeglasses and is staring into her eyes.

MAN: Ditch those 2019 blinders! It’s 2020! And we’ve all got 20/20 vision!

WOMAN (thinking): At last I can see...he’s an idiot!

1962 Art: Vince Colletta Studio Color: Allen Freeman
Idea by the beautifully bespeckled Shelagh Lustig
