    Oh, I thought he was just caught with his pants down!

    It’s probably too cold in Finland for most of the year to walk around without pants anyway, so this may be a big taboo there. Back at home in California, Donald can do whatever he wants.

    You’ve got to admit Donald’s complete lack of genitalia sends a very creepy psychosexual message.

    I have to debunk this. Just an urban legend, Donald Duck (or Aku Ankka as we call him) was never banned in Finland. Rumor probably started because libraries had to cut their spending and stopped subscribing to the magazine.

    And coturnix, it IS too cold to walk around without pants for about 3/4 of a year, but we compensate with saunas. So nakedness is not an issue, I think we have a lot “healthier” attitude towards it than, for example, people from USA :)

    Sadly, I don’t have a story involving my 9th grade science teacher that I can relate to this one.

    It’s one of those things you know, but shouldn’t.
