"Ecactly - tehy did show the same entusiasm for "exotic" languages as I
the editors of "Jeg, Mikke Mus" did."

I really cant follow ur logic of it. they showed some interest in the
foreign language, but does that automatically mean they (Stefan and
Christina) actually "support" the norway editors' acts to "leave behind" the
swedish names in a book published decades ago?

No offense but you really need to work out on improving ur logics.

>>> as interesting as Swedish names!
I would definitely take that bet with you anytime (cause i'm kinda low on
cash and can use some easy money :)

As for new topic(s):
I've been wondering a while about some words that Barks used in his stories.
I recalled i read somewhere in the list (or was it somewhere else) months or
years ago that Barks created the phrase "Sue one for one's back teeth". I
have read most of Barks stories (not all ... yet) and have read some unusual
phrases, like "jeepers creepers" which later i found out as a phrase
"commonly"(?) used in 1950s in america. What i want to ask is whether or not
the phrase "ad infinitum" was created by Barks or was it also already used
before Barks used it. Well, reason i asked this cause i just recently read
an article in a recently published mag which used the "ad infinitum" phrase.

Keep On Quacking,
