Jan: A while ago, Max Gustafson requested more of his favorite character Swastika Guy in our strips. Since when we didn’t seem to listen to his wishes he made his own Swastika Guy-strip… And damn we’re glad we were deaf! Enjoy!
Fredrik: This is a guestcomic by the great Max Gustafson. His one of the top cartoonists in Sweden and me and Jan really like his stuff so this is a great honor. He’s got a really god strip comic called “Samir”, but I’m even a bigger fan of his political cartoons about Swedish society. For his guest comic Max chose to make some sort of a White trash-Nazi-version of the classic Four Yorkshiremen sketch!
Wikipedia: The “Four Yorkshiremen” sketch is a parody of nostalgic conversations about humble beginnings or difficult childhoods. Four Yorkshiremen reminisce about their upbringing, and as the conversation progresses, they try to outdo one another, their accounts of deprived childhoods becoming increasingly absurd.
The sketch was originally written and performed for the 1967 British television comedy series At Last the 1948 Show by the show’s four writer-performers: Tim Brooke-Taylor, John Cleese, Graham Chapman and Marty Feldman.
The “Four Yorkshiremen” sketch has been performed by Monty Python during their live shows, Live at Drury Lane (1974, no video recording available) and Live at the Hollywood Bowl (1982), each performance varying slightly in its content. It was also performed by Cleese, Jones, Palin and Rowan Atkinson for The Secret Policeman’s Ball, the 1979 Amnesty International benefit gala.
