Notes/References

  1. Cat cartoon, based on prototype Serious Cat Cartoon at ClipArt.
  2. Dog cartoon, based on prototype CogHill Cartooning.
  3. His favourite pop song (about a famous wrestler & weightlifter of the times, Koutalianos). Translated Lyrics for cartoon context:
    "Koutalianos chews irons,
    Koutalianos stop trains,
    Koutalianos gnaws on rocks,
    And Koutalianos demolishes mountains,
    And even if he chews irons,
    And pretends to be a lion,
    Koutalianos at his lowly abode,
    Trembles like a fish,
    In front of his lady,
    Ah how poor Koutalianos is afraid of her,
    Trembles like a fish,
    In front of his lady.
    But do not tell anyone..."

  5. Quite a successful business here up to 1993-4, when mass city reconstruction connected standalone house sewer bins to the newly designed global sewage pipe system, connecting & flusing everything into new sewage recycling plants. Prior to that, sewage was flushed into the seashore. Lots of experience with decomposing sh*t, general stinks and huge miasmatic American cockroaches: The "Johnjolis", from "John" the bathroom and "trés jolie" for "very nice" or "jolly" happiness from looking forward to going to such a great job everyday. Has a nice French pronunciation aspect and sound to it. The LEO company truck in the picture is actually outside the Universe, ready to dump its contents at point ∞ of the Riemann Sphere, which means you end up with rivers & piles of sh*t at your favourite doorstep Origin. Kind of like what might happen one day if God decides he's had enough of our stupidity with garbage disposal or general behavior.
  6. Today, if he was alive. I only beat him once when he was alive and that only after he was severely distressed and under pressure from financial and personal problems.
