Overheard Conversations ┬╗ Doctor Fran├žois von Barkle

Upon graduation from ├ëcole Idiotecha with a doctorate in animal studies, Doctor Fran├žois von Barkle observed animals around the world in their own habitat. Then, after many years, von Barkle successfully translated animal communication into English and has disseminated his work in short funny stories collected in “Overheard Conversations” a social satire webcomic.

All observations were taken in the field, often at great risk and hardship by von Barkle, to bring authentic and true messages from animals around the world, extending Dr Dolittle’s studies published in 1967 and 1998.

In recent years von Barkle has been the target of unfounded accusations from naturalists and academics who consider his scientific work fraudulent, dismissing it as absurd humor.
