Stookie, the beginning

May as well upload the Stookie strips that I've already done from the beginning. There is a facebook page that John's sorted out (John writes the strip). We've all collected stuff. Remember standing in the playground staring at another kids bulge?  Er, bulging wad of panini football stickers hoping you could swap one of your 20 copies of some Birmingham City centre forward for a much rarer Kevin Keegan (yes, I'm that old, piss off!!!) The scene always unfolded in the same way : got, got, got, got, got, got, got, haven't got! What I did have was 20 copies of a Birmingham City centre forward that everyone had got and even Birmingham City couldn't get rid of him. In all my years of collecting football stickers I never completed a single sticker album, a trait that was passed onto my daughter. Never did she ever complete her Hercules sticker album, nor her Lion King, Hunchback Of Notre Dame... etc.

A second Stookie strip

I love a cuppa, I does. I'm very partial to a nice biscuit to dunk in my cuppa.... er, make that a plate of biscuits.... er, make that a packet of biscuits. To be honest I dunk so many biscuits that when I get to actually drinking the tea, it's all be soaked up by the biscuits and I have to boil the kettle again. I've never used misogyny in a cartoon before, like I've never used, I'll do the dishes in a sentence.
