Kilroy Was Here Login/Join

When I was a kid, about 40 years ago, the 'Kilroy was here' graffito was pretty common. Can't remember seeing ol' Kilroy for about the last 20 years or so. What happened to Kilroy?

“Forty years ago?” Kilroy originated during WWII. The echoes of Kilry you saw 40 years ago were post-War memories.

That is indisputable. I was not yet alive. Although I may be the reincarnation of General George S. Patton. I don't yet remember. Perhaps visiting North Africa would stimulate the memory bank.

Last time I saw it was in the movie Kelly's Heroes
written on the wall of the German bank at the end.

I say we bring it back.

Here is a round sticker:

It would also make a good tramp stamp.

My grandpa had it on his letters and emails to me.

I still draw it places. Few my age understand.

Some joker is trying to trademark "Kilroy Was Here"

Much to the chagrin of the Admiral Shoemaker, Kilroy visited with his buddy Tess.

When I was building modular Christmas houses for malls I would draw that on the plywood. I always wondered how.many people would understand it.
