    It’s more fun if they struggle.

    What’s happened to First Dog? Is he sick? Dying? Why no new cartoons?

  3. Holden Back

    @StephenD He has a show at the Haddle-Aid Festivule.

    HB…not to mention the gig on RN Sunday Extra (audial cartoons!). I believe he’s auditioning for the plum part of the ghost of Kevin Ruddscat (add your own apostrophe – where depends on whether FD’s characterisation of Jasper is to be believed) in the upcoming Canberra production of Les Miserables, starring Huge Ackman as the parole breaking ex-Con(servative leader) M.Turnbull, Rusty Rabbott as his nemesis, Inspector Clouseau, and Julia Powerfox (sans red tresses) as the grisette Fantine, desperate to keep her child Cossette(d) (AKA Australia’s Working Families) from the clutches of Eddie and Moses Thenardier. The subsequent plot involves a doomed uprising by the Friends of the ABC (really – look up the 1832 Paris uprising), betrayal, redemption, barricades, rousing choruses and lots of mud.

    @StephenD @Holden Back I saw Firsty was at the Haddle-Aid Festivule as Holden refers but think FD went for the Addle bit and would of if he didn’t wanted to buy a pair of swimming trunks … that feels dayzha voo now I say it … swimmers cozzies bathers swimming costume pair of bathers yet only one but with two leg holes in case someone has two left and so on…

  6. Sandshoe

    two legs left …

  7. Sandshoe

    …not two left legs … that would be a mistake of great misintervention proportions wouldn’t it… especially trying on cozzies

  8. Sandshoe

    mmm … read between the lines people…he is claiming he is late … true or false…

    Not to be confused with the Paddle-Aid Vestibule. His selected version of “A Walk in the Black Forest” on RN haunts my dreams. Cocktail piano and clarinets!

    See, we can entertain ourselves in our Glorious Leader’s absence. I wonder how long it will be before we start drawing inadequate cartoons on the walls of our caves? Canine Lascaux!
