was going to post Mr Yuk as well with a quote from when reporters asked if he heard about Mr. Ball's passing:

"I didn't attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it."

I have no idea why Carnegie Mellon University Men's Ultimate Frisbee have usurped this symbol for their sport.

Yes, Mr. Yuck was created in Pittsburgh in 1971 but that is not a good enough reason you socially maladapted CMU nerds.

I was wearing my Harvey Ball shirt from That's Entertainment in Worcester, MA today totally by mistake. Nobody said anything but I guess that's no surprise.

Is that the original 1970s version?

I'm only familiar with the Sandman version.

I still have to add that data to my WizWorld website, currently in caregiver's limbo.  Meanwhile:
