THE STORY BEHIND THE MUG

Historically, politicians on both sides of the aisle are on record demanding a wall or more immigration control.  Today the aisle is divided, one side wanting to build the wall (with a few detractors dragging their feet) and the other side wants open borders to flood the nation with illegal immigrants.  

Kilroy was here is an American expression that became popular during World War II, typically seen in graffiti. Its origin is debated, but the phrase and the distinctive accompanying doodle became associated with GIs in the 1940s: a bald-headed man (sometimes depicted as having a few hairs) with a prominent nose peeking over a wall with his fingers clutching the wall. (Wikipedia)

The phrase may have originated through United States servicemen who would draw the doodle and the text "Kilroy was here" on the walls and other places where they were stationed, encamped, or visited. An ad in Life magazine noted that WWII-era servicemen were fond of claiming that "whatever beach-head they stormed, they always found notices chalked up ahead of them, that 'Kilroy was here'" (Wikipedia)

lt is time to resurrect "Kilroy" to make a point in the 21st Century.
