    I really admire this one, Cory!
    “…a snowglobe-sung by Wayne - IN Russian!” BRILLIANT! BUT … who but Ludmilla would want it? :-]

    They didn’t have a snow globe of Stalingrad?

    Living in NYC for 25 years gives me enough time to look at multilingual subway ads so I’ve pretty much deciphered the Russian alphabet. I think it’s funny that “Danke Schoen” is followed by the English word “Darling” (complete with a Russian pronunciation including the “hard G”).

    I can suspend disbelief about Wayne Newton; it’s much more fun to do that than to actually listen to him (which I can’t stand - he’s as awful as the stupid song, and both are perfect for showcasing in snow globes). If the Beatles could record “Sie liebt dich (ja, ja, ja)” in German - which they did - then anything could happen.

    I like Ludmilla - she’s a multi-layered personality. Triggering her sentimentality is like “touching a nerve” … and Corey depicts that perfectly! This strip feels like a Christmas present to me.
