And we, till now unmatched in ill,
Must leave successors more corrupted still."

I have no collection of books on the Pogo.

OMG!  I never knew our brethren in NZ were so deprived!  Why isnít there an international aid appeal going out for this.  Truly shocking... :icon_surprised:
DO NOT send me anything Pogo! My wife will burn it! Her hatred for the Pogo is right up there with that for the Airtruk...

Hmmm...looking at their facebook page, I note they are showing one of my old sketches from 2008:



See here:

Be nice if they credited it at least.

Mind you, I wonder if they realise this was a fictional creation of mine and not even napkinwaffe?

The look on the pilot's face kind of conveys a feeling of trepidation on his part:  "Oh shit!  Why did I take off?  It was so safe back there on the ship.  Landing this thing is going to be a bitch!"
