Napoleon Yeah, right

Just wondering

Over in my journal, I was asking folks what odd bits of knowledge they had and benicek posted:

Napoleon Bonapart learned to speak English really badly in his final years of St Helena.

Is it as amusing to you as it is to me that one of the things Illya's use to kid Napoleon about was how terrible his French was?

Accident or just one of those funny coincidences?

Hi, and Archie Comics

Hi, everyone,

I've been following the goings-on irregularly in the canteen for a couple months now (thanks to spikesgirl58 for telling me about this) because I've been a huge fan of MFU since 1964.  From what I've seen, this community is an excellent one.

I've come out of lurking status to share with you a book I found yesterday when browsing at Barnes & Noble:  Archie Comics' The Man from R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E. It's a reprint/reissue of the comic's mid-60s parody of MFU (title gives it away, I know).  Archie and the gang battle C.R.U.S.H.  Haven't read it yet, but since I like Archie and love MFU, it's bound to be a pleasure.
