Back in the annotation for strip #439, I made a comment about using the correct (or incorrect) German definite articles based on the genders of the associated nouns.

Well... After receiving a few e-mails from helpful German readers explaining the intricacies of the German article system, I've concluded that it's way too hard to even try to get them right. So I'm abandoning any pretence and just using whatever ones (die, der, das) sound coolest at the time. The fact that I get it wrong 9 times out of 10 should simply serve as an additional source of humour for German-speaking readers. ;-)

2013-05-27 Rerun commentary: This was the first step to further abandonment of any pretence and just using "die" all the time.

Its amazing how well Monty's plan actually works here. I guess the Nazis are too surprised by this plan to actually fire their guns.
