Mystery Package Clue #2 - A Trip To Mexico Goes Awry

Today I received a plain 6"x9" plain manila envelope. 

Inside were the following:


I'm pretty sure it's Cthulhu making people go insane and dying.  Norwegian Cthulhu.  Or something.

Mystery Package Clue #1 - The Norwegian comic page

I received a bright yellow business envelope addressed to me (no return address) and inside was this comic sheet in Norwegian and the post it note that is printed (despite looking hand written it is not). So far I've figured out the following:

Post It: Bratteli and Solberg are both Norwegian last names, not place names.

Comic front:
Panel 1: Do not scare the cat, Jens! He has not said a word in several days!
Panel 2: Is THIS what you saw?
Panel 3: IS it? *WHACK*

I included the back of the comic in case there are clues there. It's all in Norwegian and I haven't taken the time to translate it yet.

Sorry if the pages are ridiculously large on your screen.  I use a high resolution on my laptop and so the text was too small to read at smaller sizes.

Mystery Package Company

For my anniversary/Christmas/Birthday present, Andrew has signed me up with the Mystery Package Company  Every few weeks I get a "clue" that tells a larger story.  It could be a letter, it could be a parcel, it could be a crate.  He doesn't know what the story is, so it will be as much a mystery to him as it is to me.  I am going to post this to Facebook, but that can make it hard to keep track of everything and review what we've seen so far.  So I am also going to post it here!

We've been immortalized on the Internet.

So, when my husband and I are out and about we have some pretty strange conversations.  I always wondered if anyone paid attention and, quite frankly, hope that most of the time no one does.

That having been said, I'm pretty sure we had (almost) this exact same conversation at Wendy's once:

(I am waiting in line at a fast food restaurant. The couple behind me, who looks to be in their late twenties, are discussing their orders.)

Guy: “Have you tried the bacon, mushroom and Swiss cheese burger?”

Girl: “Yeah, it wasn’t bad, but I’m not a huge fan of mushrooms.”

Guy: *starts singing super quietly* “Mushroom! Mushroom!”

Girl: *also super quietly* “It’s a snake! A snaaaaaake! A snaaaaake!”

Both: “Badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger!”

(They then go back to their conversation about various menu items, completely normal.)


We may have been immortalized on the Internet.
