Abdul: You'll really like this video. It's packed full of naked ladies.

Beau: Can I get it out for one night only?

Abdul: I'm not one to advise on personal matters.

Abdul: So much depends on your self-control...

The winner gets original strip artwork by Mince. Second place gets a week's worth.

Beau Peep Book 12. Yours for a tenner.

I must admit I'm tempted.

For an extra fiver I can get it signed ...

By Shuggie and Duggie.


Number of balloons - correct.
Humour - questionable.
Incestuous element - marginally admirable.
I'm dafter than I look.

No, they're only cartoon characters, and not real people.

If they do, I'm sure they won't mind. Our connection with the guys goes back over 20 years when Andrew and I came up with the strip. It was originally called "The Border" and featured the two main characters, Shuggie and Duggie. For several reasons, Andrew and I decided not to go ahead with it and passed the idea on to the guys who took it in a different direction. (For example, we had set it in the sheep-stealing 18th century-----they moved it to the present time while, with more than a touch of the surreal, retained the 18th century clothing and housing.) I DO have a tiny problem with some of the material. They have a tendency to, rather than come up with fresh ideas, simply illustrate old, established jokes. (Shuggie and Duggie sitting on a plane. "Those people down there look like ants". "They are ants---we  haven't taken off yet".) But that's a personal bugbear of mine and certainly doesn't mean I'm right. Shuggie and Duggie is popular and has been running a long time. That, in itself, is a great achievement in a very competitive market.
