[Photograph 2012.201.B0223.0840]

Description:

Photograph taken for a story in the Oklahoma Times newspaper. Caption: "Only Sporting Thing to do is to let each reader write his own caption to this picture. While it's actually Kokomo Jr., the TV chimp, we're sure you can find a resemblance in his actions to someone you know. Reporters think Kokomo was acting like a city editor; the city editor thought it looked like a disgruntled caller. So have your own fun. Actually, the picture was taken to fit in a strip you'll find on page 15, on how Kokomo Jr. Lives."
