but is no longer published.

 


Thanks to all the Poufies that sent captions for Myscha's cartoon on the
6 March 02 Update.  Here are some of the better ones.

"Why You Should Only Trust a Guy Who Drives an Automatic" - Paige

"Aw, come on Sis, Mom said I could wear that outfit tonight" - Page

"No Steven, you can't wear these petticoats until after we take our ride. You are a closet prissy." - Kent

"Nope… I just don't think you would look as good in my petticoat as I would in your car." - Davita

" No, I don't want to swap. Last we swapped, you wouldn't give them back!" - Nicole

Scott has provided some stillclips from the anime film Porco Rosso ('The Red Pig'). This scene is a flashback to 1910 when the two characters are flying in an early aircraft.

"This is from an old 1942 wartime cartoon titled 'Blitz Wolf.'
  It may be the only tank I've ever seen with a petticoat."

 

(below) In 2003, on one of the groups, there was some discussion of the  British banning of petticoats in the classroom during 1961-62.  Below, a cartoon, from Bee, that speaks to this.
