    One of my favorite jokes growing up was that the worst thing that Hitler did was ruin a perfectly good mustache for future generations.Note to self. Never ever use that joke again.

    Ugh. One of my (petty) pet peeves: use of “both” with “same” or “different”. “They both had different names.” “They both had the same mother.” Should be “They had different names.” and “They had the same mother.”

    Nab: philosophers trying to fool people didn’t wait until 1700. It started with Plato.

    @KZ 71, good idea, but it was a bad mustache to begin with.

    @Fairport fan, I only see 2 panels on my screen.

    In the second panel Frazz meant “converse,” not “inverse.”

    Forget about the grammar issues — what are they doing to that poor snowman?

    nosirrom: And in most of the involved world, WW-II started in September 1939 (earlier in China).

    Not a grammar issue – a vocabulary issue; the two words are closely related but do mean slightly different things. A grammar issue would be saying “would of” when you mean “would have”.

    The strip is implying the converse is untrue, not the inverse. Frazz is saying that Q → P is untrue. The inverse would be that ~P —> ~Q, which is not covered by the last panel. However, the statement implies that the contrapositive, ~Q→ ~P, is true if the first panel is. For a nerd comic, this was a gaffe.
