Tooper has been listening to friends mocking his tendency to take the stairs, rather than use the lift. Pointing out that anyone who didn’t feel a little uneasy while choosing to risk life and limb by stepping into a metal box suspended high above the ground held only by a steel cable, should really be […]

Cool Hand Toop

Tooper and friends have been wondering what it would be like to share a prison cell. After all, isn’t enforced incarceration in unnaturally cramped living conditions bad enough without being forced to co-habitate, they mused?  And then when you factor in the communal (and no doubt, limited) toilet facilities, it really doesn’t bear thinking about, […]

Graffiti Greats!

Tooper and friends have been musing on the money to be made from street art and graffiti. After all, they argued, if someone like Banksy can make a fortune by creating such a hype around a ‘they seek him here, they seek him there‘ elusive persona and spray-paining stencils on walls, surely we should all […]

Keeping eBay at Bay

Tooper has been listening to friends boasting about some of the bargains they have managed to pick up on eBay. While most reported the usual ‘been there, done that’ (got rid of most of my unwanted tat before replacing it with similar) scenario, others seemed quite content to continue buying what appeared to be (from […]

Movers and Fakers

Tooper has been listening to friends complaining about ‘fake’ people.  What’s to be gained from pretending to be something you’re not, they wondered?  After all, won’t the truth come out eventually? Tooper wonders if they are being a little harsh.  Who amongst us hasn’t at some time or other faked a persona to suit the […]

Piercings-R-Us

Tooper has been listening to friends discussing his tendency to ‘stereotype’ people. While  Tooper takes issue with the use of this highly sensitive word, he considers that what most other people define as stereotyping, he would consider to be merely … categorising.  In fact, he believes that since the dawn of time, we have been […]

Cracking Under Pressure

Thumbnail image for Cracking Under Pressure July 14, 2014 Cartoons

Tooper has been listening to friends discussing how they felt they would fare under interrogation. Whilst there were a few brave (some might say foolhardy) souls who felt they could withstand anything from white noise to waterboarding, there were others who were a little more circumspect. Seemingly being exposed to any (or all) of the […]

The Licence List

Thumbnail image for The Licence List July 7, 2014 Cartoons

Tooper has been listening to friends discussing the growth and growth of the government licence. Is there any activity these days that doesn’t escape the all-compassing gaze of officialdom, they wondered?  And who are these people anyway, to tell us whether we are competent enough to wield a fishing rod, perform street theatre or even […]

Shop Til You Drop?

Tooper has been quizzing female acquaintances about why they are always so laden-down with shopping bags. While most described themselves as not serious shoppers, just ‘lovers of a bargain’, Tooper wondered whether there were those amongst them who were kidding themselves.  He contended that, while they may be able to convince themselves that their shopping […]

The Eyes Have It!

Tooper, as someone who knows and understands the condition known as colour-blindness, has been enlightening his friends on the subject.  Not the negatives, you understand, just the positives. Whilst there may be those amongst you who are struggling with the concept of finding anything positive in having your career choices severely depleted, Tooper offers some […]
