Joe Btfsplk

He was one of the great characters in Al Capp's Li'l Abner comic strip, which ran from 1934 to 1977.

The world's most loving friend and worst jinx, he always traveled with a perpetually dark rain cloud over his head.

Once he appeared on any scene, dreadfully bad luck befell anyone in his vicinity.

Though well-meaning and gentle, his reputation preceded him such that he was very lonely and feared.

His creator, Al Capp, pronounced Btfsplk with a "raspberries" sound, aka a "Bronx cheer."
