YAY!!! A thousand points for Oddball !!   |:)\  ::bow::  |:)\  ::bow::  |:)\

It's "Heinrich the Rooster"! Hans's uncle who built Roost-Air before Hans took it over with his Yogurt background. I think it's mentioned in the "Birdseye View" blog on the homepage but I'd have to look.
We had a whole spin-off series planned of Heinrich the Roosters adventures in WW1 and/or WW2 as flyer in the airforce. Maybe some flashbacks or a "WWHD?" (What would Heinrich the Rooster do?) thing but we didn't get to it yet.

Hans's last name btw is "Übergröβenbacher" or in English letters "Uebergroessenbacher". I don't think we've used it in anything yet but the joke is that "Uebergroesse" roughly translates to "big boy" or "XXL" or "oversized" (Literally it's "oversized"). The other funny thing is supposed to be the long name and that it sounds very very German.
There are soooo many ideas and so little time.....

More trivia for all you guys who really care!  ::wave::

And Rooster: I hope this won't keep you from buying the book, but the Feng Shui jokes ARE in the new book, actually 4 of them.... Sorry!  ::sick::

Maybe she'll be like Jessica Rabbit: not really bad, just drawn that way.

Jessica Rabbit is so HOT!!!  ::unbelieveable:: ::unbelieveable:: ::unbelieveable::

Geeze Gil...   ::)  Methinks you want to play "Patty Cakes" with Jessica Rabbit!   ::silly:: ::loony::

I'd Patty her Cakes any day!  ::) ::) ::) >:D >:D >:D

Only thing preventing me from buying the book is a severe lack of steady employment.   ::eek::  It's mighty slow out there right now, but I'll send you an order once I get things squared away.  These last few weeks I've been rubbing two nickels together... hoping they'll mate.  ::sweat::
