Froggy attempts to murder a faux Mexican. The faux Mexican reminds me distinctly of the faux Frenchman and faux Italian. Could they all be brothers?

Leave it to Froggy. We just killed a “insert stereotype” here to make you scared little kids & parents feel better. Now go to church and Sunday school. What a twisted mess.
Indeed… I’m guessing the ethnicity bashing had more to do with laziness creating characters for Froggy to attack than any particular hatred, but the whole thing comes off as bizarrely right-wing to modern eyes. Of course, Andy clearly was a worshiper of Cthulhu, not Christ… you wouldn’t want to see the Sunday Schools old Andy is talking about. Schools of fish!
By the way… I still haven’t received the circus love poem you mentioned, if you’ve sent it again.
