This panel ran in the South Bay Easy Reader back in 1984. I'm pretty sure I lifted the cute little aphorism.
For those of you who who are new to the blog, I developed the Griggits when I was in high school. There were teenage daydreams of Griggit tv shows and movies. By the time the Griggits had run their course, there had been t-shirts, cofee mugs, and a comic strip run in a popular Los Angeles newspaper. Not bad.
As far as Mr. Obama goes, he had absolutely nothing to do with the Griggits.
