Happy Birthday James!

Thanks to the person in the library telling the really bad jokes...

Let Down - Grimmer Than Grimm 2

Beauty is in the eye of the person 40 foot below who has yet to acquire binoculars. The sequel.

Grimmer Than Grimm 1

Personally, I never saw the point of taking a lock of hair as a keepsake. 'I love you so much! Here, have some of my dandruff to remember me by!' How romantic.I have a feeling that fairy tales may become a recurring theme...

Yeti Angst

Wait - they're not made of snow? Yeah... I'll try and make the next one more interesting.

Appropriate Action

There was a slight change of plan. We upgraded the Uranium to Plutonium. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.
I thought I'd posted this months ago, so sorry about that. However, since fate has been averted and I will not be needing to put the proposed plan into action, I feel I can post safely without jinxing anything.
Some more awesome guest art, this time by El.

Obviously I never actually considered this plan. Honest.

Lies Your Parents Told You

A trip to the zoo.
Mummy knows best. For Beth and Hats and those REAL zebras. "It's like we're going to our doom..."

Salem Vampires

Why didn't we think of that before? Another alternative plot for The Crucible.

The lack of new posts recently has been due to large exam-shaped things which loomed ominously for several weeks before finally attacking in a hideous swarm. However, I managed to fight them off, sustaining only minor imediate injuries. The full extent of their effect on the future remains to be seen. Up next, something a little less Crucible related.

We Thought He Was A Witch

Actually, we don't think much at all these days, what with being dead.We no longer think that.

Following on from Nomi's "Reduced Crucible", this is one of the sketches I did to while away the time behind the lighting desk. I can't decide whether or not "The Salem Vampires" would be an improvement; the fact that vampires don't die when hung would make the play even longer. However, I still think it would be an entertaining alternative.

Oh Dear We Ran Out Of Rope

You don't mind if we reuse an old noose do you?

All that fuss just because some kids wanted to dance. Kind of like Billy Elliot really - only with a higher death toll...

Over the next few days I plan to post a couple of toons I drew whilst crewing a school production of The Crucible. However, unless you've seen or read the play, they won't make much sense to you, so to solve this problem my fellow techie Nomi has drawn a strip which conveys pretty much everything you need to know about the plot.

Green-eyebrowed Monster

Next week, nostril hair. No, really.
What would he have done if I'd given the guy a monobrow? Died of fright? Wimp.

Next up, some more guest art!

Decimation of the Hermaphrodites

Oh, the terrible hubris that is knocking the genitals off stone statues. I wonder if he felt that same guilt you get when you accidentally squish a snail... Somehow, I doubt it.And he was sentenced to death for his impiety, though he didn't stick around to find out how they planned to execute him.

Obviously the reason I took Classics was just so I could make terrible jokes like this one.

The Hat

Who knew there were re-enactment groupies?
Picture the scene... A Robin Hood Pageant, complete with jousting re-enactments... And crazy fan-girls.
The Hat smelt ever after of beer and sweat. Nice.

Another amazing guest art by Nomi who can be found here.

Awww - I was looking forward to bringing about Armageddon.

Some great guest art from Nomi, as promised.

With thanks to Nomi, who can be found at YouTube - icclenomi. Look out for some more of her art here in the coming week.

Very Appealing?

Or just very disturbing? Since the last toon was something of an inside joke and thus probably not very funny to anyone who has never found a boiled woodlouse (a delicacy, just not in this country) in their pasta (most of the population then), I thought I'd do something out of my own head this time. Not sure yet if that was a good plan...

Coming up next, some weird and wonderful guest art.

An Educational Puzzle

Or death, in the case of the Woodlouse. R.I.P. A lesson to Carrie.
Drawn from life.

Is It Contagious?

That strange disease.Exams are coming and they're bringing their friends Boredom and Depression.

Thanks to Kate for looking so terribly bored that I was compelled to do something to alleviate her pain.

Context is Everything

Serve not service.
How to get a barman to serve you.

And yes, once again, she did actually say this. We have come to the conlclusion that she lost her verbal filter long ago, though I'm not convinced she ever had one. Personally, I can only see that as a good thing, as it means endless inspiration for 'toons.

Another Unobservant Person

This was not the worst atrocity commited in this episode though: that prize goes to Guy's hair.
If there was no hidden reason for this major blip, my opinion of the BBC is going to fall even further. Not only did they kill her, but now they can't even be bothered to find the right props?

Your Main Strengths and Weaknesses

An imperfect perfectionist; the best way to be :) Life would be a lot less amusing if we were all perfect. El, you will never live this down, mostly because even months later it's still funny!

I'm not sure if I should apologise for my tendency to write in random asides which detract from the original point of the cartoon. I have yet to decide whether they enhance my work or simply confuse people even further.

Homophones of the Worst Kind

And you thought incest only happened in Greek tragedy. Bread happy at BreadFest09 - thanks to Nomi and El for the brief and vaguely surreal exchange of which this is the result.

Yeah, I still can't see it

Consider me the guy who still can't see it.

The Point: Visible, Existing or Otherwise.

Stare intently into an empty cage and see how long it takes before you have a crowd of fellow gawkers, all convinced they are looking at something amazing.I started the above strip last week, but you know what? Life's looked up since then so I've written another and I'm posting them as a pair.

Thank you.
Apologies for the bad quality - for some reason unbeknownst to myself, I decided to draw them on my squared maths paper... Turns out it doesn't scan so well.

You Got A Pen I Can Lend?

The moral of this tale? You only have one life. Also, don't lend people pens. There is such a thing as too much sharing.
"What's mine is yours." Pfff.

Twilight On The Brain

Well, it's not my fault he didn't undertand that being mistaken for Edward Cullen is a compliment. No comments about how Twilight fans should get lives please - we already know this.
Thanks to Clare for the inspiration.
