I, also, would like to know who the lady in rollers and the guy that looks like Beaver's dad is. (50s TV reference for those of you too young)
Hey, I know it's a bit late but I couldn't help stop reading in this chapter to see if someone actually recognised the women in the hair rollers.
I think I do, I might be wrong, but I think she's a character in an old mexican TV show (70's and 80's) called "El chavo del 8", her name is Doña Florinda ("Doña" as in the female counterpart of Don). This was a very popular show in Latin America. And a couple of years ago got a revival as a cartoon.
So far I'm loving Erfworld and I'm kinda sad I'm catching up to the authors. So I guess this is my first contribution to the community.
Some pics, the outfit is not the same, maybe I'm totally wrong and that is a random character they decided to draw, but since most of them seem to have a real character which they are based on...
