Of all the literary genres, humor has the shortest shelf life'except for Archy and Mehitabel, that is. First published in 1916, it is a classic of American literature.

In poems of varying length, Archy pithily describes his wee world, the main fixture of which is Mehitabel, a devil-may-care alley cat

He stood the cane in a corner, changed his sober street coat for a more sober office jacket, adjusted a green eyeshade below his primly brushed grayish hair, unostentatiously sat down at the copy desk, and unobtrusively opened a drawer. For more than ten years Cleggett had done the same thing at the same time in the same manner, six nights of the week
