Solipsistic Comics


I love Jim Mahfood's work, here's a gag from the latest compilation of his newspaper strips, STUPID COMICS. But "dominate every other sport"? What, like rugby? Cricket? Snooker? Darts? Formula One? Which sports exactly? The ones no-one else gives a monkey's about?

Oh aye, that's hardly a given anymore, either.

You missed the annual lawn bowling championship starring that skinny guy who smokes a pipe. I'm pretty sure it was an oversight...

Was he an American?

Kenski said...

Erm... dunno... We only had a B&W; TV and the sound was broken :-)

Mark said...

Only kidding. The guy with the pipe was David Bryant. I remember it well.

Just another sport the rest of the english-speaking world competes at internationally, while the U.S. plays its own inferior mutation amongst itself.

Oh, and love yer blog Kenski! I've set myself a similar challenge myself - some old pals of mine and I have formed a band (BLACK LAGER!) to play during the interval of "the real band" at a mate's wedding. We're not competitive or nuthin', but we'll blow them off the stage.

That's the fella! David Bryant. Good times! David chewin' on his pipe on Beeb 1 whilst Jockey sweated on the oche (I had to look up the spelling!) over on Auntie Terrestrial Number Two.

Gee, good luck with the switch-hitting band. If all else fails PLAY LOUD. Last wedding I went to, the bride tried (and failed, naturally) to molest me... they're dangerous events!

Mark said...

Well, I'm always up for a bit of molestation.

Hold on, that didn't come out right...

...my advice?

Don't answer it!

Oh lordy!
