     I haven't said anything about ABBA, but thanks for the information
     About those Marvel Disney magazines -- I have, for some reason I
haven't found out yet, bought all of these (except for two issues that
the comic shop somehow lost), so I would be glad for the information.

A Dolt in the Deep
DAVID: I don't think that the idea of counting fish was that dumb. Of 
course it is a bit strange, but it is not a bad parody on how the 
population (of fish) is measured. It isn't that different from how the 
Nowegian whale populations are counted either (I _know_ they are not 
fish ;-). They aren't counted by divers, though -- they are observed 
from ships.

Maybe you use to call stamps "stempelkussen"?

Race to the South Seas
I haven't looked very close at it, but I'm quite sure I noted the name
"Kwaak" on the boat, so it's probably Jippes' version. At least I know
I have seen "Kwaak" somewhere :)

DAVID, what's your snail-mail address? I've got that DD&Co #39 (with your
Double Hex story) for you. It's not a used one :-)
