  1. By the way… just noticed that Jeffrey is wearing a Bohemian Grove shirt in the comic, and it made me wonder:

    Do you suppose that the hoi-polloi who gather at the grove have started a jazz/fusion group called “Bohemian Groove” ? And if not, what do you suppose it would take for me to convince them to do so??

  2. I was vaccinated against Cooties once. It didn’t give me autism, but now I sometimes get this weird feeling when I see members of the opposite sex.

  3. Ha! I noticed the Bohemian Grove shirt, too. Being from S.F., I’d always been aware of the Bohemian Club (I think my dad might have played gigs there or something…so “Bohemian Grove” sounds as familiar to me as “Chinese Funeral”)..

    It wasn’t until years later that I heard about the BC’s alleged New World Order connections.

    Expatria: isn’t it funny how most people think that “hoi polloi” means upper-crust? I think it’s because it sounds like “hoity – toity”.

  4. Sweet, humor once again rises up to fight dangerous stupidity.

    Rousing music in the back ground. Deep gravely voice over.

    “When stupidty threatens the world with its siren song of meaningless drivel and all of the smart people are too scrared to face it what do you do? Who will save us from the stupids? Humor will. From their secret headquarters backstage at the laugh shack they plot their counter attack and. it. will. make. you. laugh. and. think.”

  5. @Steve: Thanks for the link. That’s hilarious!
