    My lunchtimes just got duller.

    Don’t go too far.

    Can’t make up my mind whether to cancel my subscription now – I’ll need to think about that. FDOTM was often the only bit I ever read. Oh well, life goes on. But without the ABC interpretive bandicoot?

    That’s a small step for a FDOTM, but a big loss for Crikeykind. FDOTM, you have done an amazing job of bringing humanity, razor-sharp analysis, and marsupials to the political debate.

    Its just not on. Get back here. [whistle whistle] Sit Sit you mongrel . Get on your chain & don’t let hear me you barking that “I’M LEAVING SHITE” again. Now here’s your PAL cause its so chunky you can carve it. … Now sit sit SIT I SAID.

    We will all be watching the Guardian very closely to see whether they try to bland you down even slightly. And if they do…BAM! in a non-violent and probably figurative way.

    Thank you for the life affirming, soul searching, teenager transforming, laugh-out-loudly brain stimulating empathetic ‘toons. Long may you continue. Otherwise my fridge door is just about to get a whole lot less colourful.

    Thanks some more Firsty, you’re truly a National Treasure and as lovely as it says on the packet.

    No shout out to Political Correctness and all of his custard? That was pretty much my favourite cartoon of all time.

    Godspeed First Dog.
