Che

Remember when I said that Mozart was the Elvis of Austria? Che Guevera is the Elvis of Cuba. His picture is everywhere. I even bought Loinfruit a Che shirt.

¡Caramba! Che is all over the place.

This is the back side of Plaza de la Revolución. The big monument on the other side is the José Martí Memorial.

This is where Fidel gave all those long speeches. Our guide told me that the people of Cuba never considered Castro to be a dictator. They thought of him as more of a father. Below is the Museo de la Revolución.

During the Bay of Pigs invasion, Fidel Castro drove this tank.

    It dawned on me the other day why I have never picked up on the fact that Enos Pork’s mother-in-law is called Alferda. Dagens Nyheter, one of the leading Swedish newspapers, is running another useless son-in-law throwing contest series at the moment, and I noticed in yesterday’s strip that Mrs. Alferda Packer is in fact not called Alferda in the Swedish translation, but rather Alfreda. I would assume that this is because everyone would take ‘Alferda’ for a type-o. We certainly have not heard about any Alferds (or Alferdas) in these parts (but there are Alfreds around, and Alfred Nobel, who instituted the Nobel Prizes, was of course a particularly famous Swedish Alfred).

      Alferd Packer was a famous American cannibal from the 1880s. I named Mother Packer after him. The student dining hall at the University of Colorado is named the Packer Cafeteria.

    Why would you support a person like Che Guevera? He was a ruthless murderer and a Marxist communist. We forget because we are not taught about the past.

      I didn’t say I supported him. But Che t-shirts are a popular novelty. I don’t support cannibalism either, but Enos Pork has spent a lot of time in a cannibal stew pot. I try not to take anything too seriously. You can’t change the world, so you might as well laugh at it.

      I’m no fan of people who kill other people.
