    Oh, I’d love a silk GoComics ascot…
    And a cold day in Hello Kitty.

    My good friend Nini is under the impression that all Frog Blog readers are burnouts who’ve done lots of drugs:

    Actually, I think she may hold that opinion of GoComics readers in general.

    I’m still burning quite brightly, thank you.
    And my skewed perspective is not the product of drug abuse.

    Casting aspersions on silk GoComics ascots simply will not be tolerated.

    RE Blog: If the naked boy is a cow by day and a boy by night, how did he get the tan legs and arms? And when was he wearing the clothes that kept his torso from tanning? Just wonderin’…………….

    Which was the bigger surprise for the father: the fact that the cow turned into a boy or that his son was bovisexual?

    I resent your good friend Nini’s implication that the ephemera of LSD flashbacks are splashed all over the Frog Blog page.

    I submit to you that they are painted with a fine tipped brush.

    (However, Ms. T may twirl that brush in her mouth to better define the tip if that has anything to do with it.)

    It would add a whole new dimension of interest if the comics would intersect with ‘real life’ like that…not to the comics, to real life!

    On the blog: That person who complained about the blog being neo-Dada should have waited for the underwear with chickens. Who could resist neo-Dada like that…or whatever name you want to give it?

    “Finnish Continuation War” was the follow-up to the Winter War between Finland and the Soviet Union. In August 1939, the Soviet Union attacked Finland with the goal of grabbing as much territory as possible (I think the official excuse was they needed a defensive zone to protect Leningrad and Murmansk). Stalin had just purged the Red Army, and when they attacked Finland they got their butts kicked at first. The Finns made good use of ski troops in hit-and-run attacks on the Soviets; one of their improvised weapons, used against tanks, was glass bottles filled with gasoline and stuffed with rags. These fire-bombs were mockingly named after the Soviet Foreign Minister: Molotov cocktails.

    The Red Army kept grinding away at the Finns with the standard Russian tactic: throw enough bodies on the enemy and eventually you’ll crush them. The Finns had to sue for peace in mid-1940, ceding a considerable amount of territory to the Soviets. The Finns obviously did not appreciate this. A few days after the German invasion of Russia in June 1941, the Finns became co-belligerents with the Axis. The Finns called this the “Continuation War.”

    Fighting resumed with the aid of some German-supplied equipment, although the Finns did not greatly aid the German war effort. They made some inroads against the Soviets, but by mid-1944 the tide turned and the Red Army was pushing them back. The Finns again sued for peace in the autumn of 1944; there was an armistice, with a peace treaty signed in 1947.

    The Continuation War posed diplomatic problems for the US. On the one hand, the Finns had allied themselves with the Axis. On the other hand, they were responding to the earlier Soviet aggression. In addition there was favorable sentiment toward Finland because it had kept making payments on its WW I debts to the US (we loaned them money after they won independence from Russia in 1918). We never declared war on the Finns, and maintained diplomatic relations with them through most of the war, to the chagrin of the Soviets.

    Is this opinion based on her association with you ?
    I’ve always said that, if you remembered the Sixties, you didn’t have a very good time.
