I was dead wrong.
But for the record, Charon steers the boat down the Styx, not Death.
You’ve seen their work in The Atlantic and Barrons, and on Gizmodo.com and other web sites. And now they’re creating… the 2018 Bickel Family Chanukah card.
As always, any member of the CIDU Community is welcome to a card. It doesn’t matter which if any holiday you celebrate next month. Or if you’re a frequent contributor, a lurker, an artist, or even a @#$% Squirrel.
Just send your mailing address to BICKELCHANUKAH@GMX.COM (and only there). All addresses will be deleted as soon as cards are mailed out.
(Please note that the other 47 spellings of “Chanukah” will not work)
“Since this was addressed in a comic, I feel justified asking a question that’s always bothered me: was there a practical reason the war ended on 11/11 at precisely 11, or were the diplomats just being cute? And if it was the latter, did they really not understand it could end badly?”
Not only don’t I get it, but I’m pretty sure this is a repeat and I didn’t get it the first time either. And forgot the eventual explanation.
And by the way, Death showing up in the comics twice on the same day doesn’t even qualify as synchronicity anymore.
