Post scriptum: I don't know the English word for fyrbäbbla, so if you do, you can improve the transcript. The fyrbäbbla is a creature with four arms, four legs and four heads, who appears in Sven Nordqvist's Minus And The Great Wide World. It's the fyrbäbbla who lies behind the name KRYSTPLATT KACSNUTT. He gives Minus a pennant with these words and tells him it says "The fyrbäbbla's fan club".
