“What do we leave? Nothing much…”
“Shalom Aleichem” would be doubly appropriate.
Well, be sure to always wear your hats, crowns, halos, etc.
Fiddler on the roof – Anatevka (with subtitles) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWiRetxeviw As they are ordered to leave their homes for a new place.
זייַ געזונט zay gezunt (Yiddish for goodbye)
“Someone should have set a match to this place long ago!” (Just kidding, Pab. I’ve been honored to be a part of this community, and will deeply miss the daily hijinks.)
Go n-éirí an bóthar leat
Go raibh an ghaoth go brách ag do chúl
Go lonraí an ghrian go te ar d’aghaidh
Go dtite an bháisteach go mín ar do pháirceanna
Agus go mbuailimid le chéile arís,
Go gcoinní Dia i mbos A láimhe thú!
I’m so glad we’ve had this time together….. (tug your ear if you appreciate NAQV)
Best wishes for your future creative works.
You should only live and not die altogether!
Pab, we hardly knew ye. Good luck on your next big thing ! :-)
Me thinks the ladies doth protest, just right. And we’ve ALL been amused. Mostly… ;^j
(((((HUGS!))))) And best wishes.
What comes closest to replacing this strip?
See you in the funny papers! Er … um … I guess not.
So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye.
The fictional shtetl in Fiddler on the Roof.
Goodbye, Pab, and thanks for all the fish, etc. Sniffle. :’-(
So I was reading this book called “Everything’s Coming Up Profits” in the restaurant and the waitress asked what it was about. I pointed to the part I was reading about a couple of guys who did an industrial musical about Ford Tractors and then went on to create “Fiddler on the Roof”!
She didn’t know what that was.
She was 19, and the only musicals she knew were “Rocky Horror” and “Across the Universe.”
Of course, this was before “Glee” hit it big…
Sorry to see you and NAoQV go, Pab.
Family anecdote: My maternal grandparents left their shtetl and came to the US. Both ended up as union organizers. One never knows what change will bring, Mr. Sungenis!
A little bit of this, a little bit of thatA house, a broom, a stick, a hat…Thanks for 15 years of smiles, laughs and a few tears (both happy and sad), interspersed with trenchant observations of modern life. Good luck wherever life takes you, Pab!
Live long and prosper, Pab!
I will miss the strip, Pab. Very sorry to see it go. sad sigh
