    No, no, no. It says “2% milk.” It doesn’t say “2% milkfat content.” Ziggy is spot on. Next question, in a mirror why is your image swapped left-right? Why isn’t it top-bottom? Think about it for a while before answering.

    Let’s see … Joseph Stalin … “died” or … “left office” … photo retouching. I think ol’ Joe was erasing more than photos, here.

    Story about Krushchev. Soon after he took over, in a Politburo session he was being taken to task for not being more, ah, “assertive” about calling his predecessor on “mistakes that were made.” Krushchev turned around suddenly and shouted “Who said that!!!”

    There was dead silence: nobody even moved.

    Krushchev said “Now you know why.”

    Nobody on earth knows what any character in this strip is talking about. Neither does any character in the strip know what any character in the strip is talking about. That’s why the whole thing is sheer genius!

    Insects also lack lungs; all breathe through their skin, or at least the skin not covered by chiton.

    Yes. Or, at least, you’re wrong about that. But in France it’s “droit” and “gauche.” Or something like. The French have a different word for everything.

    I do remember the instructions about wire-wheel British sports cars, where the wheel was held on by a huge screw-on cap rather than lug bolts/nuts. Because the acceleration of the wheels, if threaded wrong, could loosen the cap, the right and left sides of the car had the caps threaded in reverse from each other. I was actually glad, once I found that in the service manual, that I had clunky steel wheels on my TR-250!

    Every once in a while you encounter something with reverse threading, but it’s always for a specific purpose like that.
