The reference to COMET magazine is in honor of Bres Planète, a European B.S. magazine that would publish everything as the Truth, as long as it was unbelievable enough. They had little trouble finding subscribers or authors. Dutch writer Simon Vinkenoog ("the unbaked string of dough" as another Dutchman, Jan Cremer, used to call him) went around bragging that his stuff was published in there. But it must have been for the Honor, I'm sure Bres Planète didn't pay very well.Oh yeah, the accent. I can't really do the accent in English. But I took a line through Milt Gross' Nize Baby.
