Random LabRats

Here's probably the last bunch of Labrats for a while. The site still looms pregnantly in the ether somewhere, as all efforts are going into the site, which is up, if incomplete.

It's the wettest Summer since records began. Trumpton is drowning and I... live by the river.

For everyone not injuncted who's planning on a Heathrow camping holiday this year. Be of good cheer. Does that look like Charlton Heston to you?

I fully realise that there is nothing clever or original in pointing out that - by and large -men are undiscerning, Pavlovian bonobos, but it is too rich a seam of comic possibilities to walk away from.

But the terms and conditions of my official Ministry of Culture Artistic licence release me from any requirements vis a vis ethical consistency, containing as it does an annually renewable hypocricy permit (available at post offices and most branches of WH Smith). I hope this amuses as many as it offends.

I have been staring at the screen for so long today that my eyes feel like they belong to someone else. I hope he takes better care of them than I do.

Smoke free

Smoking in enclosed public places becomes illegal in the whole of the UK today, as England catches up with the celtic fringe. Throbgoblins International gave up the vile poisonous filth en masse four years ago and are therefore all insufferably smug about the whole thing. Here are some old cartoons to celebrate the occassion.
