Strong Silent Types

Commy has been listening with surprise to female friends bemoaning a dirth of male ‘strong silent types’. Given that they had previously always informed him that the key to any good relationship was keeping the lines of communication open, he felt compelled to enquire whether what they were now referring to as strong, silent types, […]

Nom de Plume

Commy’s friends have been discussing Celebrities and the naming of their offspring. Can there be any better manifestation of their egos, they wondered, than the saddling of their poor, unsuspecting progeny with such self-indulgent epithets as Apple (Gwyneth Paltrow), Jermajesty (Jermaine Jackson) and Pilot Inspektor (Jason Lee – an American actor/comedian, apparently!).  Don’t they realise […]

So Macho!

Commy has been listening to one of his female friends castigating men for laughing at her so -called ‘irrational fear’ of using lifts, or elevators as our US based clientele prefer to refer to them. She further wondered why men pretend to be so macho.  After all, she argued, things have moved on considerably ‘evolutionary-wise’ […]

Target-Weight Tyrants

Commy has been listening to friends discussing the waning of resolve that inevitably follows the start of any new diet. Why does it all start so hopefully, they wondered?  After all, armed with the latest dieting tome, an unflinching attitude to booze and chocolate and a new-found evangelical spirit, shouldn’t it be inevitable that target-weights […]

The Body Bonus

Commy’s friends have been wondering why they never come up with money-making ideas, unlike the person who, no doubt, made millions ‘inventing’ and marketing the blindingly obvious neck-brace. Somewhat high-handedly, Commy felt obliged to point out that most of the time this had very little to do with true entrepreneurial spirit. Rather, it was more […]

Prestigious Or Pretentious?

Thumbnail image for Prestigious Or Pretentious? June 19, 2014 Cartoons

Commy has been discussing some of the ridiculous ways we find to spend our money, whether it be for cosmetic surgery or for the latest prestigious branded clothing. Not that he has a problem with the notion of the flaunting of wealth, per se.  After all, there can be very few of us who haven’t […]

Post Relationship Positives

Thumbnail image for Post Relationship Positives June 12, 2014 Cartoons

Commy has been listening to female friends discussing an absent member of their group’s relationship breakdown. Now, sad as it is to listen to this well-meaning outpouring of sympathy for any heart-broken, abandoned female, Commy made the mistake of wondering aloud if they weren’t doing their friend a dis-service.  After all having been forced to […]

Extreme Auction

Tooper has been listening to friends discussing their experiences of Ebay. Apparently for true aficionados there’s really nothing to match the thrill of the chase for the ultimate Ebay bargain. It seems not only do you require the skills-set of the hunter in locating and stalking your target, you also need nerves of steel in […]

Walk The Walk!

Thumbnail image for Walk The Walk! May 29, 2014 Cartoons

Commy has been listening to friends complaining about London’s crowded streets, particularly during their daily commutes. Is there anything more guaranteed to raise stress levels, they asked, than negotiating a way through the heaving mass of humanity that makes up our crowded inner-cities? Commy argues that before criticising others, we need to consider the impact […]

The Fridge Years

Thumbnail image for The Fridge Years May 26, 2014 Cartoons

Tooper’s friends have been discussing the pivotal role ‘the refrigerator’ plays in all our lives. For some, this was the ‘go-to’ place at the start and end of the working day to titivate the taste-buds and draw inspiration for the day’s culinary journey.  While for others it represented our on-going love-hate relationship with food, symbolising,  […]
