    The funniest thing I ever saw in Viz was about a boy who believed himself to be the Son of God, to the considerable annoyance of his father.

    After telling him off for this silliness, Dad sends him to the corner shop to get some fags. The kid sets off, with a peculiar trembling sort of walk, and Dad shouts down the garden path after him "And stop moving in a mysterious way!!".

    I still giggle at this donkey's years later... but what was the character's name, and was he a regular or a one-off?
     
  2. Must have been a one off. Not one that I remember. Sounds funny though!
    My favourite Viz strip ever was "Deathbed Chortles with Bob Hope". All about Bob Hope trying to sort out some amusing last words and failing dismally.:wacko:

    Don't remember it but your description is enough to make me laugh!:wacko::biggrin:

    Kind of reminds me of an old school friend of mine who used to mumble the word "Nothing" under his breath, much to his Dad's annoyance. When he was grumpily asked 'What did you say, Graham?' he'd answer," Nothing" which made his old man even grumpier.

    It’s not a regular strip, but there are occasional one-offs with various religious figures in. The last Viz that I saw had Mary, Joseph and young Jesus at home on Christmas day when Uncle God turns up with presents for the lad. Joseph turns to Mary and mutters, ‘Your bloody ex today?’ It’s very funny….:wacko:
     
  5. ^^I liked that one too. Viz works on so many levels.:wacko:

    I used to know one of the artists on Viz, not one of the originals, but the guy who did what was originally called Kappa Slapper, until Kappa sued them...

    My favourite strips were the surreal ones with utterly implausible back-stories that used to take the piss out of old children's strips from the 50s - the best one of these was the Vibrating Bum-faced Goats. Oh, and Billy the Fish, of course...

    I don't remember the one Nick mentions, but it does sound class...

    FM,

    those are indeed great strips, I particularly like the ones with the boy Jack who stays with his aunt Meg, where everyone in the village is staunchly racist/homophobic/etc but not an eye is blinked!

    legendary stuff


    and the pisstake adverts are great too
    the one where tramps could borrow ten pence for a cup of tea and then pay it back in installments over 50 years!

    I think mine is the 'Modern Parents'. I work with an old hippie who is a dead ringer for Malcolm.

    Funny thing is the kids turned out OK even though they have weird parents

    I had my pic in Viz once.
    I was Mountainbiking in the Chilterns with some friends and came across a sign: "Bellingham End Farm'. I stood in front of the sign obscuring the 'ingham', while another of the party took my photo.
    I considered the result to be commensurate with the gutter-level, puerile type of humour that Viz specialised in ;) and duly sent the pic in. They published it and it sparked off a competition for similarly-named places around the world.
    I got sent a couple of Viz mugs for my troubles, which I still have!

    Despite my moniker, avatar and love for smutty humour, I honestly haven't read it since about 1993! Used to read it regularly though, Billy the Fish, Modern Parents, Sid the Sexist, and occasional one-offs like Jelly Head:

    I used to love "Black Bag, The Faithful Border Binliner". I remember being unable to control myself once in Manchester Airport when I read the Viz story "Dr Poo - Travelling Through Time and Space to find somewhere to do a sh1t" - utterly, utterly hilarious.

    Got the latest Viz annual for Christmas - a real treat, and then bought 'Roger's Profanisaurus - The Magna Farta Edition' in the sales. Amazed to find what 'Edinburgh' is the slang for.... ;)
