Denmark just had a reform of the welfare state, in reality they could just have handed out 5.000.000 t-shirts saying: "no work, no eat" (and "whites only" on the back)

- the thing is to be a mensch!
- but what's that?
- it's yiddish!
- yeah, I know that, it means "a human being", so you have to be "a human being"?..

 - listen:  have you seen the blind guy selling pencils outside the Brooklyn Bridge station?
- yeah, he's got a cup full of  pencils, he's selling them...
- exactly, so you put ten cents in the cup and then you take a pencil...
- yeah
- You see: "a mensch", he wouldn't take the pencil...

Real WWII

Pat Blakely's dad served in the US airforce in the pacific during WWII, check out his private photos of the dayly life of a WWII bomber group stuck on a remote airbase (one sees how the idea for movies like M:A:S:H came from...)

Fascist, moi?...since the days of German Nazism it has been impossible to use the swastika symbol, but before Nazism it was often seen in popular culture as a symbol of good luck.

Rumour has it that Robert Crumb has completed 44 pages of a scheduled 200 for his comic book version of The Genesis (no, not the band...)

With Crumb's long standing reputation as the acid-fueled, sex-obsessed wierdo of comicdom this choice of subject comes as a surprise to most.

Not so, in my opinion, and a hint of what we might expect could be found in Crumb's rendition of The Religious Experience of Philip K. Dick where he depicts scenes from biblical times.

Another important clue is Crumb's admiration for cartoonist Basil Wolverton who also did a series of highly original illustrations for The Bible in the 1960's

(gleeful anticipation)
