Toon Town

With all the Monets to stare at on the walls of my cliff top mansion, I usually have to don my darkest D&G shades to gawp at anything less. But one of my regular correspondents, who happens to be a cartoonist in his spare time, has just started his own blog, featuring his 'toons'.

It's early days, but I think the lad shows artistic promise.

So take a look at snailspace. I can assure you the fellow behind it is a thoroughly good egg, even though he's not, as far as I know, a millionaire.

At the rate that street lights get engineered, it's no surprise he's not a millionaire!

I see where you're coming from, Lucy, having read his profile, and the fact he's called Snailspace.

But this chap's actually got dilithium crystals in his jocks, if you catch my drift.

Who wants to be a millionaire?
If you walk down a street with 10 lights, and 2 are not working, you only noticethe 2% that are not working not the 98% that are.

How about the 12 that are out as you drive down into Ramsgate Harbour?

Those blinking flying poodles. I'm beginning to feel as if I've relocated to an Alfred Hitchcock movie.

I've not met many men that don't have 'warp speed' knicker padding.
I don't think it's anything to be proud of!
As for this 2% theory, it seems obvious that art and math are mutually exclusive. I think you'll find that 2 out of 10 is more like 20%.
This problem is, in fact, 10 times worse than you are claiming.
And you still think we ought to focus our attention on the remaining 67% that work?
That's only just under a third, you know!

Gosh. Let's call Benoit Mandelbrot and see what he makes of it.

"Clouds are not spheres, mountains are not cones, coastlines are not circles, and bark is not smooth, nor does lightning travel in a straight line."
Also sprach Benoit.
He may have a point, but I think it's a bit of a bloody obvious one.
Like saying the sea is a bit bumpy at times.
Personally, I'd have chosen Mr Hawking to sort this one out. I'm sure he'd be glad of a break from the missus.

I stand corrected. It must have been the Jim Beam
