East Of The Wantsum BOGOF!

Yes folks, it's Buy One Get One Free week in your super, soaraway Ricardus Eastcliffiensis! Not that any money changes hands for these things. Still, I like to think they're priceless. So here's this week's doodle, as featured in today's Isle of Thanet Gazunderer. Click on the pic to big it up.

And below is the first version, which the powers that be rejected on the grounds that it contained 'too much swearing'. Given that it was Mike Pearce's column in the very same Gazunder that started the whole Turner a*******s row, I think it's a bit rich, don't you? Or maybe they've been 'nobbled' by a 'very senior Thanet Council officer'!

The rejected version is far better!

I thought so too! I only had half an hour on Wednesday to come up with a replacement. Usually it takes me at least half a day to produce these pearls!

Yes rejected version is first class.
Would look good in Private Eye.

I think 9:54am is Peter Checksfield who is probably Roger Latchford anyway.

The naked photos are great but I think you need to stay in a bit more.
