My guess it’s so we can tell the difference between them, if you ever watch anime the girls all have elaberate/distinctive hairstyles so it’s easier to tell them apart.
Weird Al forever.
You forget that this comic is a “classic” comic, the original date on the comic is 2004, the year the Olsen twins turned 18.
When I was younger there was a joke where someone would ask you if you could stick out your tongue and touch your nose. The idea was that people couldn’t touch their nose with their tongue but they’d try a few times and then give up and the person would demonstrate that you could stick out your tongue and touch your nose with your finger. The first time someone pulled the joke on me they were shocked to realize that my tongue was long enough that I could actually touch my nose with it. For the longest time I didn’t understand the joke or why people kept walking away after asking me the question. One day I saw someone pull the joke on someone else and finally realized what it was all about.
Gandalf certainly was.
actually Andre Alice Norton (originally Alice Mary Norton) was never married and died with no descendents in 2005.
I wear shoes everywhere for 3 reasons, first, I have deformed feet so when I go barefoot over a lanolium floor it feels like I’m walking on marbles, second, I have very little sensation in my legs and feet so I don’t feel it if I step on something or into something, and third I have a tendancy to pick up pressure sores and caluses on my feet and need to wear my shoes to protect my them.
I think it was actually Pablo Roberson, he was still “short” as an adult and was considered one of the globetrotters best ball handlers and dribblers.
I remember reading once about a small country (a Russian satalite) where the government was ordered to make stamps comemorating Marx and Linin, the resulting stamps comemorated Groucho and John.
I remember reading once about how one of the Harlem Globetrotters was so short as a kid that he was always benched during the basketball game so he started amusing himself by dribbling while he sat out the game. Over time he got so good that he was able to combine his height and dribbling skills around his opponents and leave them in the dust and eventually his dibbling skills got him on the Globetrotter’s team.
