Viz has been gracing British newsagents' shelves since 1979. Its irreverent mix of bad language, childish cartoons and sharp satire has seen its creators hauled over the coals by the United Nations, questioned by Scotland Yard's anti-terrorist branch and exhibited in the Tate Gallery. Viz's comic characters, such as the Fat Slags, Sid the Sexist, and Roger Mellie the foul-mouthed Man on the Telly, as well as its hugely popular Top Tips and Profanisaurus sections, are firmly established as national institutions, just like Broadmoor Hospital for the Criminally Insane. *Manufacturer's estimate.

letter bocks

I USED to have great sympathy for those orangutans whose rainforest habitat is being destroyed to grow palm oil. But then I discovered that each ape occupies a territory of around 6 square kilometres. This seems awfully excessive to me. Maybe if these orange monkeys got over themselves and downsized a bit, then this whole fuss could be put to bed. J Crease, Cambridge I HONESTLY thought I would struggle to settle in to my new retirement home, but already I have made so many new friends in the TV room, impressing them all with 9-letter words and farts that last the duration of the Countdown clock. Barry Onions, Saxilby MY wife and I very much enjoy the TV programme…

noughts & crosses corner

I AM delighted to have found a worthy opponent, although I must profess to having sleepless nights over where to go next, as I did not see this move coming at all. With countless possibilities, or seven, as my 6-year-old son pointed out, it has taken me some time to decide on my next move. I do not want to ruin my end-game by being overly aggressive at this stage, but I believe a cross in the top middle will provide plenty of food for thought. I would though welcome any strategic advice from readers, as I fear I may have met my match. S Andrews, Bristol ...If I had been chosen to play against Mr Andrews, I would have placed my nought right in the…

dame of thrones

FLAMBOYANT panto star CHRISTOPHER BIGGINS is set to surprise Game of Thrones viewers when he joins the show’s cast for the HBO blockbuster’s eighth and final series. The veteran entertainer, 70, will dress up to play The Widow Clegane, mother of Sando and Gregor Clegane, better known as the Hound and the Mountain. Series producer David Benioff told us: “Game of Thrones is known as a dark, gritty, and violent drama, and we thought it would be nice to introduce an element of family-friendly pantomime fun to the show for this final series.” “Biggins’s brand of over-the-top, camp slapstick has had kiddies and grown-ups alike rolling in the aisles at provincial theatres up and down the country for years,” said Benioff. “And…

We feel that Game of Thrones and Epson are…
