An even better one was the aliens in their spacecraft with the rednecks strapped to the bonnet...

I just can't fnd it right now.

Well that's the more blunt way of putting it but as usual he's dead right.

I think it's on Pinterest, but you have to be logged in to see it properly, so the next best thing is this t-shirt that someone made:

"Bummer of a birthmark, Hal'" was my fave Farside. Can't find a picture though.

Funnily enough, I came across that one while looking for the one linked to earlier but it didn’t have the caption on it, which kind of spoils the gag.

Gary Larson - very much not a twat.

Philip Green, on the other hand... now why was I not at all surprised when his name surfaced in connection with that story? He goes way beyond mere twattery, into far more sinister territory.

Mind you, Johnson Sr seems to be just as much of a twerp as his son, so who knows?

As a PSO I had a job as a barman for a posh events company. Among the many junkets for the rich and famous i worked was PG's 50th birthday party, which was every bit the bastion of understated good taste you might expect...

(Actually, I vaguely recall being treated better than some gigs on that one - it was a very long shift, but we were fed and watered ok)

Part of me disagrees, especially when he states:

These cartoons are my “children,” of sorts, and like a parent, I’m concerned about where they go at night without telling me. And, seeing them at someone’s web site is like getting the call at 2:00 a.m. that goes, “Uh, Dad, you’re not going to like this much, but guess where I am.”

That is brilliant. Disappointed that the rewards for the larger donations are not similarly irreverant tho!

yes
as a consultant for the law firm, although denying knowledge, does feel vindictive.
The name would have come out in the foreign press.
Will there be ramifications for parlimentary privilage? as he has pissed off a lot of people

I'm no fan of Peter Hain and there are things he has done in the past that could be enough to earn him super-twat status, but on this occasion? Questionable action for apparently questionable motive but right result, which I think is enough to let him off the hook. It would have come out sooner or later anyway so all he has done is bring forward the inevitable.

No. HTH.

And in any case, if it did, what of it? Is parliamentary privilege a cause worth defending?
