before internet dating, this is how it worked . . .

I don't use many audio alerts, but of the few I do, a wav of Mole's giggle is one. So far no luck with a DVD of the series...

Thanks for the HL chaps.

In some way the words of the story are more disturbing than the pictures, as whilst sitting on his log crying, the rabbit thinks to himself "I shall eat a poisonous toadstool and die".

how did I miss this!
what a cartoon and what a cartoonist!

Swamprose - in that case the men on your internet dating sites aren't worthy of you (or the organisers aren't worth your money)

With one exception I've always got flowers for myself anyway. It ensures you get the ones you like..

I've never seen this. It's kinda groovy. I hooked up just before the internet dating thing boomed. I wonder if I missed something?

taniwha - I've done quite a bit of internet dating. It has helped me learn loads about myself and I''ve met some wonderful people, a few of whom have become very good friends....... but I'm still single

(happily so I should add.. too much to do atm and if I had a partner something would have to go in order for me to spend quality time with him)

The seventh panel—with the scalpel and the tube of whatsit and the toy train—has to be the most surreal thing I've seen this year.

it was a complicated birth???

That might explain the witch-doctor rattle and the cannister of abrasive cleanser in the bag....

just awesome. I recognise the illustrations but couldn't name the author. seems he had the same mix of whimsy, warmth and despair as tove jansson.
