The first man ever to have got on top

Here’s some Christmas cheer for those of you who have been enjoying a plump turkey and a really good stuffing today. I tore the following page from the comic Viz when I was much younger than I am now, and it has been sitting quietly in a picture frame on my hallway wall for many years. It’s time it reached a wider audience.

I’m sure many of you will remember Viz from your school days. This particular cartoon strip features the character Finbarr Saunders and his Double Entendres, and is the episode where Mr Gimlet takes Finbarr mountaineering.

With apologies to those of you who don’t like schoolboy humour. And for those of you here for the first time, welcome to my blog and merry Christmas!

    Excellent! Sid the Sexist was always my fave (I’ve been trying to get hold of ‘The Sexist Book of Records’ for some time), but Finbarr was close behind.

    Merry Christmas Mark!

    Nothing like a bit of viz humour! My hubby is just reading his fat slags annual he got for Christmas, whilst I have just finished the last book of yours I had left to read. Looking forward to your next book, merry Christmas and a happy New year.
