Reach for the starbucks

So another 70's celebrity is arrested for child sex abuses. Jimmy Tarbuck this time. Tarbuck was from a generation of comics who seemed to base their act on jokes that started, "I wouldn't say that my mother in law is fat, but... " Now I wouldn't say that Jimmy Tarbuck was funny... I wouldn't, really, I wouldn't! My favourite comedian of that era was always Dave Allan, absolute genius. At least no one can say anything bad about him now that he's passed on, but we never did find out where he lost that finger!!!

How black was my sabbath

I swear I'd posted this caricature ages ago but can't see any sign of it on here so may as well post it now. Tony Iommi is without question the master of the heavy guitar riff. I think most people know that he lost the ends of two of his fingers on his fretting hand so it's amazing that he's as good as he is. Apparently he glued the the tops of a couple of washing up liquid bottles onto his fingers so he could play. Bet Blue Peter never thought of that!! I did hear that porn star, Chad Thrust lost half of his old boy in a car door and he too used a washing up liquid bottle. It also came in handy when it was his turn to do the dishes... and press the button for the lift when he was carrying 2 bags of groceries.
