“There is one advantage to having nothing—it never needs repair”

"There is one advantage to having nothing—it never needs repair” is a saying that has been printed on many images. “There is one advantage to having nothing—it never needs repair” was printed in “The Country Parson,” a one-panel comic strip by Frank A. Clark (1911-1991), in many newspapers on December 14, 1977.


Wikipedia: The Country Parson
Country Parson, a series of one-panel syndicated newspaper cartoons, always featuring a short aphorism or observation (modeled in part on the original anonymous Country Parsons’ writings), created and written by Frank A. Clark (1911–1991) of Iowa, illustrated by Wally Clark and later Dennis Neal, running from the late 1950s through the 1970s.

14 December 1977, Des Moines (IA) Tribune, “The Country Parson” one-panel comic strip by Frank A. Clark, pg. 3, col. 3:
“There is one advantage to having nothing—it never needs repair.”
