* Mentioned once in ''ComicStrip/BloomCounty''... bearing an axe about the size of Milo. Actually a bit of a RunningGag: Blinky's Anxiety Closet occasionally reveals he ''still'' hadn't returned that overdue copy of GreenEggsAndHam... with the AxCrazy librarian showing up to note how many days overdue it is. Every revisit (into the ''Outland'' and ''Opus'' sequels) has the day count go up.
