    Hey, thanks for the link to the Snopes article. I use their website often. Now I feel even better about their validity.

  2. Bunk Strutts Says:

    Leeuna– Snopes is one of the best de-bunking (gawd I hate that term) sites around, even though there’s a slight slant to the reporting. To her credit, Barbara M. provides backup links to everything she posts.

    Best wishes!

    you got too funny!

  4. Bunk Strutts Says:

    Ji– The link above the snopes link is the best.

  5. ZZMike Says:

    I remember Ken Nordine! That was about a thousand years ago. I’m glad to hear he’s still going strong.

    I also remember the Curta. I almost bought one a long time ago – but it was a little pricey – somewhere around $100.

  6. Bunk Strutts Says:

    ZZMike– I discovered Ken Nordine in college. WKSU would play selections from “Word Jazz” in the early morning hours. Great stuff.

  7. Rob Cypher Says:

    Is there some reason sluggo is wearing the flesh of a woman’s face on his face? Did he become a serial killer somewhere along the way in the “Nancy” comics?

  8. Bunk Strutts Says:

    Rob– Way back then the comics were on a tight budget. Sluggo had a dual role as Nancy’s Aunt Fritzi, and Nancy doubled for most of the others in the strip.

    [Whoop! Looks like I already explained that one at the top of the post!]
