#84: Technical Difficulties



So, this weeks’ strip did not totally go as planned. After my computer decided to crash and corrupt the strip that I was halfway through drawing and then my graphics tablet decided it was time to be replaced at great expense, I had no time left to redraw the strip (and to be honest, when you have drawn something once, it’s not fun drawing it again). So with a few hours left to get something done, here you go.

We apologise for the interruption. Normal service wil be resumed as soon as possible. Now, here are some local scenes.

    Hate that your compy went ka-blooey, but this is actually a funny and weirdly convenient thing. It’s Mr Hoover’s fault. He does not wish you to reveal things about him and his plot for world domination!… * hides from Hoover under his shield of protective blankets * Can’t get meeee-eee!

        Those little graphice pens can only handles so much creative flow, sometimes Foxx has a creative surge that causes a blockage of “art” and the whole thing has to be reconditioned by someone with an artistic licence

          I think they get excessive amounts of TEH AWESOMES in the nooks and crannies.

            Well, TEH AWESOMES isn’t something I’ve got to worry about yet. Good.

            No, wait…

    Dear Mr Wolff,
    My Law Firm, (Sue, Grabbit & Runne) represents the BBC and we would like a word with you. Two words, actually; “Bend Over”

    PS Do they now have wide-screen test cards? How up to date!
    PPS Who won the 0’s and X’s – you or the scary-looking clown? I am thinking the clown won due to your expression

      Yep, this is a slightly tweaked version of the new “HD” test card that appears briefly on the BBC HD channels. But I retitled it as Test Card F for child remmemberings purposes.

      Ahh, Test Card F. Such memories. Never mind hding behind the sofa from Daleks, fucking Bubbles the Thalidomide Clown here used to scare the Bejesus out of me as a kid.

      And as for who won, well, it may take him five minutes to get to the damn board, but that fucking clown cheats.

      That girl is still alive and kicking and in fact got to KEEP the Insane Clown Posse. I read it on the internet so it must be true:

      Oh, but you do, the test card was resurrected for BBC HD. There is no escape.

        Just noticed the letter “F” in the test card…. maybe it is used to check sharp corners and resolution OR maybe you added it for your favorite letter in the alphabet?

          No, the original card we all know and love was called “Test Card F”, hence the “F”.

            whoah whoah whoah there….. back up, are you trying to tell me that TV actually STOPS for the night? How on earth do they sell crappy foot massagers or hand food processors without “Paid Programming” with 30-minute informercials (“But wait! There’s more….”) You crazy Brits, you’ll be telling me that there is no advertising on the BBC next. Now if everyone had to pay an amuont each year to keep the BBC going without commercials, now THAT would be funny! God bless the USA with our Free TV even if it is all crap. At least it is 24 hours of crap! Where else could you watch “Rupert the bear” at 3.30 in the morning? (and who the hell DOES?)
