Frick and Frack

Two very close friends. "Frick and Frack" were two characters in the Ice Follies starting in the 1930s. Katie and Molly have always been like Frick and Frack, so I'm not surprised they're going to the same college now too.

Frick and Frack

Two inseparable and indistinguishable companions. Frick and Frack was a Swiss comedy ice skating duo who appeared in the original Ice Follies, starring in the late 1930s show as comedy ice skaters. Dressed in identical alpine lederhosen, they astonished audiences with extraordinary feats of athleticism. Thereafter, any two guys who palled around together, especially if they were of the same build, were called “Frick and Frack.” And since enough such pairs were considered cutups, “Frick and Frack” also came to mean two jokesters, the way a trio of town clowns was the Three Stooges.

Within this cultural context, though, Frick persuasively argues that even the Aiken script--the one that hewed most closely to Stowe's antislavery message--significantly undercut her Christian and sentimental rhetoric by "excising abolitionist characters that appeared in the novel" and "simplifying those remaining characters most closely associated with the indictment of slavery" and by "treating clinically scenes of great emotion" (59).

Discusion: el molar en cuestion se distingue de los similares del genero Cuvieronius por su relativo pequeno tamano, a pesar de que se trata de un molar tercero inferior que corresponde al mas grande de la serie dental; sus dimensiones nos indican que se trata de un Gomphotheriidae de muy pequena talla y el patron de desgaste de los conulos, muy simples, sugiere que se trata de una forma relativamente primitiva, caracteristica de los mastodontes del Mioceno Medio y Superior; por ejemplo el hemilofido postrito segundo de contorno triangular con la base hacia la region lingual, es muy similar al molar ilustrado por Frick (1933) en la figura 5 o por Webb & Perrigo (1984) en la figura 4.
