Flashman

I write about Flashman over at the ST (that's the Sabotage Times, not the Sunday ones). Unusually, I do this under my real name and, watch out, there's a mugshot.

Since the Sabotage Times is James Brown's organ (others have included Loaded and GQ) I focus on the laddish elements of the series.

I could have done without the closing 'randier than a badger' extract/Cameron juxtaposition, especially after lunch. Made me chuckle reading the frogspawn line again (I hope Noseybonk doesn't mind you borrowing it.) I think it was on Andrew Sullivan's blog, Milliband was described as an 'adenoidal wonk'. Not quite 'with his voice like a man stirring a bucket of slugs' but pretty good I thought.

Heh heh, hopefully Noseybonk will forgive me, JJJ Jnr. That's what I call 'leverage'.

No! seeing your mug shot has now changed the way I view your writing. Like seeing a radio dj or seeing someone else's illustration of a chracter from a book. Still, I enjoy your writing and will try to get over this.

You don't think that's actually me do you Joe?
