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.

cat’s the way to do it!

BRITAIN’S impending exit from the European Union is at a standstill tonight after the government was made aware of a Twitter video that purported to represent the Brexit negotiations in cat form. The gif that goes on giving: Cat falling off roof keeps Britain in EU and (inset) Eurosceptics Fox and Mordaunt. At 12.06pm today, Twitter user Mark Ouspensky, 34, posted an eight-second ‘gif’ clip on the microblogging site depicting a cat scrambling about wildly on an icy roof before tumbling into a hedge.

jobs for the bots

I need your clothes, your boots and your job! Posing as The Terminator, Mahatma takes on burger flipping in a lay-by. THE robots are coming... And they’re after YOUR job! That’s the spine-chilling message from the World Economic Forum, which recently predicted that by 2030, HALF of all workplace tasks in factories, offices and shops will be carried out by machines. It sounds like something from science fiction. But take a quick look around your local high street and you’ll see that it’s increasingly becoming science FACT. From automated checkout systems to package-delivering drones, androids have already begun to edge their way menacingly into the human workplace. And now experts are forecasting that these conniving cyborgs will complete the job within a…

star letter

SURELY the manufacturers of the Qashqai can make it a bit more of a challenge to replace the headlights when they pop. I’ve just gone in under the bonnet to put a new driver’s side bulb in, and I’ve still got the skin left on two of my knuckles. Come on, Nissan, is that all you’ve got? Hampton Crumbhorn, Epping ■…

letter bocks

CAN anybody explain to me how the moon actually works? It seems that it is quite often a different shape from one week to the next. I’m no Isaac Einstein or Alfred Newton, and I was wondering if there might be as many as four moons, each of a different shape, ranging from a quarter one to the big round one. Terry Farricker, Blackpool YESTERDAY I found one of my old Matchbox cars that I hadn’t seen for years. It’s a 1977 Lamborghini and they go for about 25 quid on eBay. That colonic irrigation has nearly paid for itself. Inego Pipkin, Chorley WHENEVER twins are depicted in films, one of them is always the “evil twin.” Well, I’m a…

the letterbocks vip roped-off area

MAY I be considered to enter the Viz Letterbocks Roped Off Area? I used to present CBBC and Live & Kicking, and I currently present the gifts and gadget demos on ITV’s This Morning. Admittedly, I’m not very well known, and I think language boffins may be looking for a new letter after Z to describe my celebrity status.But I do look a bit like Dick from Dick ‘n’ Dom, so can you cause a distraction and undo the rope to let me in while no-one’s looking? Steve Wilson, ITV * Sorry, Steve, but we took the decision to close down the roped-off area due to the quality, or rather lack thereof, of the celebrities wishing to enter. And we’re afraid a Z-lister requesting entry…
