    Should've been more popular than it was. I wasted many hours reading those on a painfully slow (even by 2000 standards) dial-up connection, while I was supposed to be inputting orders in the shop where I worked.

    Slightly disappointing. Could have been Ursula Cloybeam.

    Soz, none-funny but true answer. He also co-wrote two books on weird UK tourist attractions called (More) Bollocks To Alton Towers in which they recommend eccentric but safe delights such as the Cumbernauld Pencil Museum and Morpeth Bagpipe Museum.
    Oh and a third one is called Far From The Sodding Crowd.

    I remember him playing Philip Glass' Koyaanisquatsi on a Saturday in a crowded Our Price on the King's Road. Perhaps he was actually being funny :D

    Graham Linehan and Arthur Mathews genuinely discovered "perspective" ;)

    New one's out (for subscribers,in shops on Thursday). Haven't had a chance to have a proper look yet but Biffa's in and no sign of Tasha Slappa or Disability Scooter Woman so looks like a good month.

    UrbaneFox Reduced to clear

    I stopped reading Viz when the Fat Slags were in every issue, but when I was in hospital a few years ago, someone brought me an edition featuring The Casebook of Sherlock Homeless, which I liked a lot.

    I liked Alberto Balsom and his Magic Hats, short-lived, Boswell Boyce, and Spoilt Bastard. Somewhere there is a Yellow Pages advert for builders, including Jack Churchill, a name you can rely on - that's why I chose it. Who was tight as a gnat's chuff?

    No Viz is complete without everybody's favourite televisual Titan, IMHO:

    Indeed. Everybody needs a daily dose of Mellievision, methinks. So, with that in mind...

    Again, if you're from the north east it's quite easy to work out which local newsreader RM's based on - the lads supposedly overheard him effing and blinding about his colleagues in the Egypt Cottage toilets (next door to Tyne-Tees studios - both now razed to the ground and replaced with student accommodation :mad: )
     
  24. I used to go to the tube via the Egypt cottage.the only pub I knew that sold chocolate as well as crisps.

    I've still yet to get this months, waiting on me p's ennit.

    but a recent thread reminded me of a letterbocks thing:

    they say you are detained 'at her majesties pleasure'. I don't know why she gets such a kick out of it, the cow

    Sadly the one which shows some sandwiches marching to take over the world, only to find that they have been "foiled again" is not on net of inters. So here's this other Viz thing I found instead:

    It's great. First one I've read in years but I laughed out loud half a dozen or so times. Profanisaurus is particularly fine this month. I won't ruin it for you but there's one that begins 'a fanny like a ...' that had me fucking howling. :D
