    Yeah, I remember seeing this strip not long ago:

    I wonder if this means that the re-runs here at GoComics are on a four-year cycle?   If so, why don’t we get strips from more recent years, and more importantly, from earlier years?

     

    (OBH was started in 1988 according to Wikipedia, but I can’t recall ever seeing a strip from the previous century.)

    Oh, H1N1 as in the subtype of influenza virus of that caused the swine flu pandemic of 2009:

    I was wondering what on Earth Mark was referring to with “heinie talk” and how come he misspelled heinie so badly.

    Oh, you mean in the final Bloom County strip from August 1989, right when it transitioned into Outland, right?

    Man… I would really freak out if I saw a frog big enough to do that to a dog…

    “…and the other half of the sandwich was slobbered all over and smelled like dog breath.”

    For those of us who may be a little mystified by the lonely Rajneesh refugees looking for a new Bhagwan (from the New Oxford American Dictionary):

     

    Rajneesh, Bhagwan Shree |ˌrɑdʒˈniʃ|(1931–90), Indian guru; born Chandra Mohan Jain; known as the Bhagwan (Sanskrit, “lord”). He founded an ashram in Pune, India, and a commune in Oregon and preached his doctrine of communal therapy and salvation through free love. He was deported from the US in 1985 for immigration violations.

     

    Way more info on Wikipedia, of course:

    But Billy did grow over the years, even if it was not intentional.

     

    Even though he was supposed to be always 8 years old, at the beginning of the strip’s run he resembled a kindergartener and at the end he looked like he could be 10 to 12 years old.

     

    Part of it had to do with body proportions: at the beginning his head was proportionally much bigger, like a baby’s or Disney character’s head, and at the end the head was smaller and the body slimmer.

    Hmmm… it seems you can’t use URL shorteners on archive.org archived websites. Oh, well.

    The strip that mentions Hamon Eggs is item 6 here:

    (Yes, that’s a single URL, all in one long line. I didn’t mess up and slapped two URLs together. BTW, it takes quite a long time to load.)
