'E gave Jim fair stars.' - So do I, love that line, and love the language of the conversation all together. Comic homegrown characters.

I hope your going to compile these into 'wan wee storee jimbo', would be worth a read.

Write on.

Jim Murdoch said...

Thanks, McGuire, and just for that there'll be another one up tomorrow. So there.

Ken Armstrong said...

Oh dear, I had a sort of Russell/Jonathan moment over in the reviewer blog. I was going to post an apology but feared it would all just be made worse.

Nice review. :)

Jim Murdoch said...

Er, Ken, I think Shuggie would like a word...

Conda Douglas said...

Great fun post, Jim and perfect illustration--I had to forward it all to my brother and his family who live in Waller "Walllrrr in Texan" County about 50 miles out of Houston.

Now, just how big is that candy bar?

Jim Murdoch said...

Conda, the bar actually was brought back due to popular demand for a short time. You can see a better photo here with a coaster in the picture which gives you an idea of size. I can think of a dozen bars I'd like to see brought back before a Texan to be honest. It was a long toffee chew, that's all.

I've told you before that your scurrilous skits bring opprobrium on shugs everywhere. I must ask you formally to desist and abandon this blatantly shuggist behaviour. Shugs everywhere are appalled that their human rights are being flouted in this manner.

Jim Murdoch said...

Thanks for that, Shug. Er, my Shug would just like you to know that any attempts at 'probing' will be resisted with deadly force. Not his exact words you understand. Aggie had to sit on him to calm him down and he was a bit hard to follow...but that was the gist of it.
