Definitely would not like to get on the wrong side of you Brian!! Your artistic ability combined with a savage sense of humour makes for a great political cartoonist. It is not your interpretation that is the most important thing but that you be allowed to interpret or that you face down those who would not allow you to interpret.ReplyDelete
Love seeing the dog back!ReplyDelete
Brian Mor is so good at this, so perceptive and so very funny.
Thought the one on the end had a striking resemblance to Marty!
(only from the back of course)
Brian is just amazing with his satirical view ..... as always i loved the cartoon but the thing that got me most was the "thugg" written on the "ugg" boots brilliant!!!ReplyDelete
(i know what ugg boots are only because i've had to buy them for my teenage daughter!)
Aine, and Chelsea did the double to boot - not ugg bot!!ReplyDelete
Anthony I couldn't have been happier with my boys doing the double - I have to say that I did have a short period of sympathy for poor pompey - as the had a rough season !!! But hey i'll take doing the double for the first time in our teams history !!ReplyDelete
Roll on next season - you think Rafa will stay ?
a few more should go before Rafa although his transfer policy leaves a lot to be desired. He could sort of making amends by using the transfer market to get rid of them. Gerrard and Carragher before they depreciate in all value would be like 500 dead clergymen - a good start! Brian Mor should have done his 'abandon hope' cartoon with the Kop as the background!
Anthony I,m seeing boxes now a cara .I dont want to scare the life outa our Nuala,she,s a sensitive soul, but are you sending out subliminal messages,or is it just a wee box for Albert to colour in, you and Aine could even use it to keep a record of how many cups Chelsea/L/pool win next season,leave it as it isReplyDelete
Nuala I may be away of the mark but I think the bould Brian,s wee dog may be a ref to a certain mutt belonging to a certain bearded one who was never in anything anyway.which is now like the parrot in Monthy pythons famous sketch,or maybe I just need to get out more!ReplyDelete
Marty, how come when you disappear you seem to come back very vindictive?ReplyDelete
Albert stuck up for you, when people on the blog were saying you had to book Marie into one of those Clinics.
He said, "never! Marty just hasn't paid the internet bill"
I know he has his issues, but what ex-shinner hasn't. At least I think he's an ex-shinner, but just to be sure I hid the voting card.
I hid it in one of those bins that you are so paranoid about.
Marty one question, who are the two in the photo with you?
Nuala hon, seven days in Castlerea wouldnt beat the names outa me, £50 would,I,m not paranoid about the bins anymore they are full. it,s these f,,,in boxes,and for the love of all thats good make sure your Albert doesnt lie beside any open windows, those psf,ers are more deadly than any wee vampire, excuse me I must go now I have to shovel shit as part of my community service,and after the elections the streets of west Belfast are full of itReplyDelete
