Let me say publicly that DonBoy’s answer exudes a combination of intuitive genius and confidence that make me think DonBoy is going to do big things in his life. -- Steven D. Levitt (Freakonomics blog)

Fokke and Sukke Come To America

Hey, did you know there's a Dutch comic panel called Fokke and Sukke? Does that make you laugh? It made me laugh. Innocent explanation of the names here, with the translators' addendum:
For some reason, it’s absolutely impossible to explain all of this to (unceasingly giggling) English speakers, so we decided to do ourselves a favour and go with “Duck & Birdie” instead.
