Viz June/July 2021

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.

I wept royal tears of grief for the Queen’s consort. Her Majesty the Queen’s consort. And just at the exact moment I stopped wepting over Prince Philip, I heard the news that Les McKeown out of the Bay City Rollers had died, and I wept again. I wept again and I wept again and I wept again. For fate had taken these two iconic men off the face of our globe just days apart. Two men, a duke and a troubador, who had never met, yet shared so much (subs check if they ever met actually dont bother). Both were royalty:…

Allan Clark, Totnes □ IN REPLY to Eli Wallace’s letter about people injuring themselves in a dream (last issue), I once dreamt my cousin threw a tarantula at me, so I punched him.

letter brocs corner

I’M STARTING to suspect that Tom Ellen hasn’t actually written the much anticipated broccoli-themed ‘zinger’ that we have been promised. I am sure I speak for all right-thinking Viz readers, who have been more than patient thus far, in calling for Mr Ellen to either publish his broccoli letter, or be placed on the sex offenders register. Kevin Caswell-Jones, Gresford * You have a point, Mr Caswell-Jones. We have all have waited long enough and it’s time for Mr Ellen to piss or get off the pot. If we do not receive his humorous broccoli-themed letter by 17:00 GMT on 31:05:2021, he will be banned from the Letterbocks pages. As for his being placed on the sex offenders register, we’re afraid that is not within our gift.…
