    The newcomer came to the wilderness for the reclusion, but is preparing for the inevitable guy who wants to chat.
    The problem is that these talkative walkers-by are just going to respawn.

    This is a comic strip that is “edgy”. The joke here is that the kindly man was killed.

    Thank you Markus, there is room for some actual plot speculation. (1) As per Markus, the digging man could be an investigator, and he gets so impatient with the dialogue that he doesn’t wait to exhume Mary and watch the wheels of justice catch up with the chatty murderer. (2) Or contrariwise, the digging man has just recently murdered his own wife and is digging to bury her. The chatty guy is making him worried that this may not be a secure plan and location, so he eliminates the witness.

    With regards to the size of this comic, I’m not sure who is more envious: Garry Trudeau or my 1998 computer that would still be downloading it.

    Similar gag with the Smurfs : Smurf #1 is running around a hole, shouting 33, 33, 33… ; Smurf #2 walks by, looks into the hole, is pushed into it by Smurf #1 who goes on running, shouting 34, 34, 34…

    The fact that the hole is perfectly sized for the victim suggests that it’s not merely a random killing.

    My interpretation: the skinny guy is a serial killer who was digging a grave for his latest victim. But then the chatty plump guy annoyed him so much that he killed him, and used the grave for him. The moral: being a serial killer keeps you fit and trim, due to all the holes you have to dig to dispatch annoying people.

    Thanks to Olivier (@ 9 & 17)! I had considered mentioning a very similar joke (about a policeman who meets a hippie jumping up and down on a manhole cover), but didn’t have a link to cite.

    Les Schtroumpfs. I really *did* like them before the became the Smurfs. There’s an edginess to Belgian humor that immediately gets lost very quickly. (As opposed to immediately getting lost slowly…)

    That manhole cover joke is old enough that I remember seeing it in one of those ancient yellowing paperback books of jokes that one finds tucked away in a corner of a grade school library… when I was in grade school, which was quite some time ago.

    Does the word “Schtroumphs” come from a word for stockings?

    WordPress database error: [Table 'com0800608122374.wp_users' doesn't exist]
    SELECT * FROM wp_users WHERE ID = '1' LIMIT 1

    @Feuerstein 22 : “stockings”? The story is that Peyo (the cartoonist) was having lunch with a friend, looking for a name for the gnomes when he asked for the …, the …, the schtroumpf ! (he actually wanted the salt).
    @WW 19 : if my link @17 is the cause for your remark, I’m sorry for the first 3 pages (which are irrelevant so I did not bother translating them) but page 4 has no words, so no problems ;) .

    Olivier, I was curious because the name is a homonym to the German for stocking, so I thought it might have a relationship. Anyway, the German word for Smurfs is “Schlümpfe”.

    Re “posts in American”, I don’t think there really is a rule like that here. I thought WW was being ironic because, as you say, the page you posted doesn’t have anything that needs to be translated.

    @ Olivier & feuerstein (23 & 24) - The German Wikipedia confirms the “salt” anecdote, but doesn’t provide a verifiable reference. It seems like an unlikely gaffe, but anything is possible.

    @Kilby 25 : Peyo himself told the anecdote several times, especially in children’s comic magazine “Spirou”. The magazine still exists and the story is told at every opportunity / anniversary (Peyo was born in 1928 and passed away in 1992, the Schtroumpfs’s birth was in 1958). I remember reading it there.
    Here’s a link, but unfortunately, it’s all in French. http://www.franquin.com/amis/peyo_amis.php
    Here’s a (quick) translation of the quotation in bold characters :
    This is the story of the birth of the name as told by Peyo himself :
    ” In 1958 , I was one day on a vacation at the beach with Franquin and , at lunch, I asked him to pass me something without finding the name ;” Pass me the smurf … ” I had forged this term along the lines of ” something, a thing, a contraption ” … He said,’ Look, here’s the smurf , and when you’re finished with the smurf you resmurf it to me ! ” it was so fun to smurf that in the few days that we spent together , it became a joke for us. We devoted our leisure time translating into ” smurf ” tirades of Racine or the fables of La Fontaine, and the hit songs of the day which gave some surprising results and quite hilarious , such as “Master Smurf, smurfed on a tree held a smurf in its smurf…”
    Peyo

    I can’t find anything in English :( Here is a non-Internet reference, though : in 2003, Hugues Dayez wrote Peyo’s biography,”Peyo l’enchanteur”(=Peyo the wizard), ISBN9782873930493 (the editor, Frederic Niffle currently works for Dupuis, historical publisher of Peyo). The Smurf anecdote is the subject of chapter 8 (pages 60-69).

    Olivier, that probably explains why the “t” got changed to “l” in German. It would have been “stocking” instead of “thingamajig” or some other nonsense word. Anyway, it’s not really surprising that the anecdote isn’t easy to find in the English-speaking world. English speakers are srill a minority. I often wonder what the standard English will be if English is ever widely spoken, especially considering there are more English-speakers in India than in the rest of the world put together. : )

    I always expect Smurf dialog to go “Hey! What’s smurfing on?” “None of your smurf!” “Oh yeah? Well smurf you!” “Smurf my smurfing, you smurfing smurf.”
