    The Snort Atlantic Treats Organisation

    Colin Powell has some vials of white powder he’d like to discuss with you.

    That'd be down to the joys of using the same toilet as George W. Bush, and other little white li(n)es

  • Hard News: This time it's Syria,

    But the regime’s use of chemical weapons on its people....

    Has it definitely, irrefutably moved from the 'regime's "alleged" use' status...?
    Culprits caught, fingers pointed, boxes ticked, et al...

    Because I still can't stomach John Kerry's high-horsed hypocrisy, quibbling over the method of despatch of innocent civilians, his inner ordnance-salesman seemed mostly outraged by their 'untouched bodies' - the US cannot claim any superiority in the 'killing innocent civilians' outrage, and all their posturing just makes them even less believable or trustworthy...
    IMHO...

  • Hard News: In the red zone,

    ... whitebaiters ignoring the health warnings were almost the only people not in motion.

    Arguably, they were in 'motions'...

    OMG…
    I think I just invented the off-your-face-smiley©

    I might need to have a cup-of-tea-and-a-sit-down,
    while the full import washes over me,
    hold on to this moment,
    life will never be the same…

    If I charge just a mere .0025 cents per use, linked to a NSA keystrokeclocker, why the Facebook use alone in the first month would see me set for life…

    Wonder how much those catamarans cost?

    Now where is the Unique Graphic Punctuation Royalties Association at these days?

    off script?

    anti-inflammatory of choice is Voltarin (25mg capsules).
    … Ibuprofan also worked

    Do side effects include inadvertent vowel movements?

    I reckon, as with all magicks, when prescribing, the right names are crucial in the balance betwixt nostrum and remedy…
    Voltaren® and Ibuprofen
    Just sayin’…
    O;- )

    Picky?
    I know, I know, quality control is a never-ending vigil…
    …and a team effort, Team Earth People!

    Imagine the possibility of someone mis-taking Oxytocin for OxyContin® - or vice versa...

  • Hard News: Political Idol, or whatever…,

    bewilder-led...

    ...the Labour leadership contest would be “three weeks of reality TV” and “Political Idol, or whatever you want to call it”...

    Yeah, whatever happened to heading out into the wilderness for 30 or 40 days?

  • Hard News: So long, and thanks for all…,

    Sight & sound…
    From a cartoonist’s point of view, Cunliffe would be an airy lozenge-like economy of line, while the other two, with their angry hair and changing faces, could mean hard work, cross hatching even!

    But listening to Cunliffe announcing
    his tilt at the big windfarm,
    I couldn’t find him in there,
    he vibrates all wrong,
    he didn’t make me believe it…

    Jones, is at the other pole, I think…
    but always comes across like someone
    I would rather not do business with,
    a whiff of abrasive bully?

    There’s a lot of people’s support to lose either side of that cut…

    Robertson seems to be a workable middle ground,
    and appears comfortable in the media melee….

    ‘The Leader’ is really just ‘The Messenger’…

    ..but what do I know?

  • Hard News: So long, and thanks for all…, in reply to Rob Hosking,

    Actually, Chris Keall used it on NBR ONLINE, last Thursday afternoon, only an hour or two after the announcement.

    Neck and neck with Russell, then...

    Does either of them have access to an Infinite Improbability Drive?

    Polly math…

    The elderly lady swivelled her head in my direction and gave me a long, condemnatory stare.
    Possibly the sort of accusing gaze that you inflict upon a man who…

    …would two-and-a-half-years later still recycle his daughter in a clearly labelled child killing bag!

  • Capture: Upside Down, Inside Out, in reply to ChrisW,

    out of reach?

    the real twisted (foot) bridge over the Avon looked profoundly sculptural and more meaningfully so than that Hagley pond effort? Does it yet survive?

    I believe it now warps under wraps at Ferrymead Heritage Park...
