Viz August 2019

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.

top tips

BULLDOG clips with fishing weights attached, clamped to the bottom seam of your trousers, can stop them riding up under certain circumstances, providing you are wearing baggy trousers. This tip is not suitable if you are planning a romantic evening. Gunther Arboretum, Skate SEAGULLS. When somebody starts feeding you bread at the seafront or in Morrisons car park, don’t start squawking at the top of your avian lungs. That way, you won’t attract dozens of your mates and you won’t end up having to scrap for it. Edna Shitcrumbs, Issinghurst STAND on your doorstep during the day when you are not busy. That way you can greet anyone coming to your house and save the batteries on your doorbell. Frank Cheeseboard, Hull BIRDWATCHERS.

letter bocks

IF people think Daenerys Targaryen’s character switch in Game of Thrones is shocking, they should see my wife when I come home late from darts. Kirk Flatus, Filey I ENJOY watching the local news, as it’s usually about stuff going on close to where I live in Suffolk. However, it can’t be very interesting for anyone at the other end of the country, so I have often wondered why they don’t they add a bit of news from other regions. In fact, they could make a programme with news from all around the country which would appeal to a much larger, nationwide audience. To be honest, not much happens around here. Julian Wiseman, email ON the escalator to the underground the other day, I couldn’t help but notice how many advertising boards had models…

noughts & crosses corner

HA! Nice try, Mr Andrews, but you must think I was born yesterday and that I might fall for the old ‘straight-down-the-middle’ charge, which you might get away with down the pub. Your offensive style is the noughts and crosses equivalent of the missionary position, and unfortunately for you I support Oxford Utd, so I’m accustomed to bland, route one tactics often employed in League One. I will place my nought bottom centre to end your foolish run for glory. Now, are we going to piss about or are we gonna play some noughts and crosses? Nick Lawrence, Oxford I WAS so disappointed with the Kamikaze move made by Mr Andrews (Letterbocks 286) that I put my foot through the comic and sent the bill to Dennis Publishing. Geoff Greensmith, Chipping on the Chod Bin IF…

an embarrassment of riches

WE ALL get embarrassed from time to time, and celebrities who are called Richard are no different. So we phoned up 3 of our favourite A-List Riches and asked them one simple question: What was YOUR most embarrassing moment? Richard Dawkins, godless egghead MINE happened a few years back when I was due to give the keynote address at the Atheists’ Alliance International Conference. It was a huge crowd and I was pretty nervous, so I did what I always do before a big speech: I popped outside to say a quick prayer and ask Almighty God to watch over me in my hour of need. When I stepped on stage a minute later, the entire audience was looking at me in abject horror. And that’s when I realised... I’d left my…

anniversary surprise for lyn

The pair returned to their home in Chorley, and life returned to normal with the couple raising a family of three children in the forthcoming decades.

komod - oh no!

THE DUKE of Edinburgh was being treated by doctors last night after being bitten on the arse by a Komodo dragon. The 98-year-old Prince had sat on the wall of the animal’s enclosure at London Zoo to eat an ice cream, when the 12-foot lizard reached up and sank its razor-sharp teeth into his buttocks. Prince Philip was rushed to the first-aid room near the gift shop at the zoo’s visitors’ centre, where the 6-inch wound was adjudged severe enough to require hospital attention. A luxurious stretch Rolls-Royce ambulance was summoned and he was taken to the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington for assessment and treatment. toxic According to experts, although Komodo dragons’ bites are not toxic in themselves, the animals’ saliva is teeming with harmful bacteria. Those who are…
