It's Vulgar But I Did It Anyway

A while back, I was asked to pitch ideas and sketches for a proposed TV sketch show. Needless to say, it was unpaid and remains uncommisioned. This was one idea- the "Sorry mate!" guy. If you're a guy in Britain, every other guy calls you mate. If they are in your way going through a doorway, accidently standing on your toe, or heaven forbid, spilling your pint, a quick "Sorry mate!" usually irons everything out. It's some kind of unspoken ettiquette in public to avoid bar brawls etc. I suppose in the States they'd say "dude" instead. So I thought you could apply this to some slob in ever-increasing awful situations, where no matter how vile his actions were, he always apologised and got away with it. Anyway, it's a very British-English, even-idea, and I probably haven't explained it veRy well, but that's A bit of context for this this revolting scene. And of course, if you see somebody else use it, you saw it here first!

Inch High Samurai

This is a real Japanese folk tale. I think it's got potential. Also, it rhymes, just like Inch High Private Eye used to.

I apologise for the delay, but my internet connection is now back to full speed.

An Unforseen Intermission

Normal service will be resumed next week. My internet service has slowed down to the speed of a tortoise with gout, so posting images is virtually impossible this week. Blame BTOpenworld. I know I do.
