We had this poster hanging in our home in the '70s. It's still relative today.

One of the most poignant philosophical lines ever written, and it's found in a cartoon.  I remember when the segment ran...it featured Porky Pine and Pogo, commenting on the trash people leave in national parks and public places:

Is that irony?
