    Not pen related specifically, but still one of my favorites.

    On seeing this strip, I wanted to say, "why not use a fountain pen and choose your own ink?" In fact, I did say it in the comments when this strip appeared on the Go Comics site.

    I generally prefer blue to black ink, but my contrary streak might kick in if I had to use blue. I might pick Iroshizuku Kon-Peki, which wouldn't be the blue they were thinking of.

    By the way, I hope you didn't conclude too soon that the creator of this comic was semi-literate.

    Yes, a steam-powered fountain pen, but where to acquire powdered coal for its tiny boiler?

    Following on Fred's Peanuts, this isn't *precisely* humor, but I've always gotten a smile from it - vintage ink blotter:

    "When Men differ in Opinion, both Sides ought equally to have the Advantage of being heard by the Publick;
    and that when Truth and Error have fair Play, the former is always an overmatch for the latter."
