Here is a gallery of interesting people: Hitler's nephew, Fallopius, The inventor of the tubes, the unforgetable Dr. Alois Halzeimer, the presumed arsonist Marinus Van Der Lubbe, accused of burning the Reichstag (notice box of matches in his hands!) and the great boxer and Mighty Joe Young's victim, Primo Carnera.

Some sweet kids from Argentina send me by e-mail some charming drawings under the collective signature "Anarchohumor. They are supposed to be full of rage about oppression and injustice, but in reality they are only cute because the kids suffer from that terrible illness called "good maners". Here is a picture by the French artist Vuillemin that illustrates a song by Professeur Choron, the director of Harakiri, the now extinct publication. The song is called Le Tango des Affamés (The Tango of the Hungry). This to me makes the point better about the plight of those without food than any sanctimonious Christmas song, sung by well meaning pop stars!
