    I was expecting to see the Berenstain Bears multiverse when you mentioned the multiverse.

    Image looks more like a dog than a cat.

      Yes, but the figures (Jip en Janneke) are Dutch and not Belgian. This leads me to guess that this is some Gelmanesque joke. Something linked to multiverse e.g. if we could have labelled or categorized differently, then Jip and Janneke would be Belgian or Leuven would be Dutch.
      I find it often hard to put my finger on the inside jokes on this blog (there are a lot I guess) but I sometimes think I sense the direction where it is going…

      So besides fun for his own, Andrew manages readers to think a bit about the topics-entries-pictures.

    It is actually their dog named Takkie. They also have a cat called Siep. Dutch childrens stories by Annie M.G. Schmidt, illustrations by Fiep Westendorp, both quite famous as a team publishing lots of childrens books.
