You're assuming sirens eat people. It's already been established that parts of Greek mythology are propaganda, so I rule that out as an authoritative source. And we've had no other indication in WS itself.

The blind man says we do it just for sport
It's a myth and no more
Just goes to show you can't believe everything that you read
We just come to this beach to sing"

If you're dealing with PayPal it might break your PayPal account.

I dont see Paypal on the wapsi comic website..and it also has ads for PG18 websites...

Of course, if you dont host your own website, you have to follow their hosting rules.. Pibgorn had worse problems AFAIK, they thought his characters were too curvy, did not believe they werent naked...

If you're selling through eBay you almost have to deal with PayPal.

Yet there is NO CLUE that they are. (no link address or description, could be *anyone's* graphic...) - even when you get to paypal, NO REF of where that came from.. (except that you know..) and other websites I have seen do mention paypal - but not wapsi... :P

Ummm, the link from the button begins"paypal.com", and the PayPal logo is clearly visible on the page it leads to.

Well, technically, both Pib and Dru (and what's-her-name the hair fairy) often go naked. Not as often as Berdine and Nadette, but when they go naked they look like they are wearing modified body suits rather than current fashion.

And Oognat is definitely an expert on scary stuff, and Orwellian totalitariansm. Along with many other hair fairies (and humans) she was forced to leave her original home in Europe during World War II, when the Nazis invaded. The hair fairies never did go back... too many painful memories.

She stayed in France as long as she could, but finally had to flee for her life... one of the last to make it out safely. As is traditional for fairies, she changed her name when she moved... reversing it, to commemorate the reversal in her fortunes.

She was the last Tangoo in Paris.
