Aaah, but he doesn't sing about two brothers that go on a date!

That's my favourite part of "The more you ruv someone" (and of course, Kate Monster's shocked "What?!" in reply to it)

Monobrows are like AIDS. You can't catch them from hugging and kissing. Sharing needles, however, is a different story.

Or by using that one product, which suddenly makes you sprout a unibrow.


Dammit, I can't remember which product that was. Have to find that commercial again.

You're welcome. It's my favourite. Probably the only comic strip I read regularly these days.

Also, this just in: chocolate is better than kissing.

Ugh, that made me scaringly nostalgic. Scary because I watched Barney just to understand what they were talking about on full house, and thus way older than Barney's target audience.. Still remember some of the "games" they played..

It's a very nice comic. I really liked the...I think it was Malaria party strip.

Don't you sometimes wish your native tongue is German?


Als Gregor Samsa eines Morgens aus unruhigen Träumen erwachte, fand er sich in seinem Bett zu einem ungeheueren Ungeziefer verwandelt.

Can someone enlighten as to why some translators insist on traslating "Ungeziefer" as "an insect" in English when the term really means a vermin of any kind?

Because they thought they had to clarify it, not noticing that by that they defeated the whole purpose of the choice of words.

Can you believe I read that book in English despite being native German? It was the only version we had in the library (and for some reason they always sorted the English version into the German section. I'd take it out of the shelf whenever I found it there, and bring it back to the librarian telling them it happened again. This happened on a regular basis.)
