Wheels Within Wheels

Gordon Brown and sheep-dog Boris both make extravagant claims about the greening of their budgets and the blissful cornucopia of fairy dust technology that will miraculously trump the ugly realities of a finite planet. Should be worth a few votes.

It's a shameless re-tread of this early Frank strip.

Meanwhile the Lords of Saudi Arabia make a surreal plea for special consideration, and plans are laid at the Doc Fiendish Institute

It seems to be very deep in our genes, this buying and selling lark

We at Throbgoblins International are very pleased that Al-Bia Wal-Tanmia (Environment & Development) magazine in Beirut have translated some strips into arabic for middle-eastern distribution; Reproduced here

Would you be so kind as to provide the date for the original of the Arabic one? I want to put them up side by side on our bulletin board (it's an artist coop and some of my neighbors might be entertained).


With pleasure, Susan. The titles and dates are;

Paradise Lost; 3/Jan/09
No Claims Bonus: 7/Jan/09
Bigger they are: 9/Jan/09

Seeing them mirrored that way confounds me somewhat.
