Knowledge pursues me but I am faster.......

If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, then baffle them with bullshit.......

.......One day, we will look back on this, laugh nervously, and change the subject…

Only in our dreams are we free. The rest of the time we need wages.

No. 51 Electric Sheep is not an EMO

(viewed 1687 times)
ES is not an EMO,
Of that I am quite certain,
His hair is short and quiffy
And nothing like a curtain.

His eyes are bright and shiny
And he has a lovely grin,
If anything he looks like
A Scottish born Tin Tin ...

Now that coursework is over
He's abandoned all his books
He's clubbing with the girlies,
(and can match them for good looks).

Just to emphasise the non EMOness of Electric sheep I have dressed him in a bright pink Lacoste jumper ;-)

One last blogger to mention
And that happens to be me
If only I could find a pic
That could capture all 50 ...

and strangely enough that is 50 mobloggers spread over 50 cartoons ....

Edits: Oh yes, and Swamprose ... none of us really exist, we are all just cartoon characters, the figment of my rather warped imagination .....

No. 49 They're shooting, up in London .....

(viewed 1202 times)
They're shooting, up in London,
But please don't be alarmed
It's not the kind of shooting
Where anyone gets harmed.

A photographic treasure hunt
With water as its theme....
Mobloggers got together
And entered as a team....

Racing all round London
Following the clues,
With all that running water
I hope they find some loos...

The best of luck to one and all,
I'm sure it will be fun,
With cocktails waiting at the Tate
When the long day is done ....

Shoot London, Saturday 19th May. I think Moblog have two teams entering :)
Just to wish you all the best of luck and to say that I will see you for breakfast at the Tate at 10am.

No. 48. Moblog Bar-B-Q .....

(viewed 1487 times)
Swamprose and Factotum
Have planned a UK tour,
With Moblog meets at every stage ...
What fun there is in store.

540 and SLG
Are having a Bar-B-Q,
Another opportunity
For a real Moblog fun 'do'

Mobloggers all are welcome
On 27th May,
Note it in your diaries
And be there on the day!

Thought I'd give people a reminder about the Moblog Bar-B-Q in honour of Swamprose and Factotum's visit .....For more information contact SLG or 540 ...

The Naughty and Good Family ....

(viewed 1043 times)
I got a lovely letter
From a lovely little girl
And with it came a drawing
That sent me all a whirl ...

I can see that in the future
I will have to watch my back
For Jasmine H the artist
Sure does have the knack!

Thank you Jasmine for your lovely cartoon drawing... It really made me laugh :D ... I think you have real talent and one day may take my place as the Moblog Cartoonist .....

Sorry I did not post this sooner .... but it has been a busy week and I only just got the camera back .....

No 47. Dhamaka is travelling tonight on a plane .....

(viewed 1217 times)
Well this might not be strictly true, as I think she is flying tomorrow .....
......Just wanted to wish her a safe and productive trip (and fingers crossed, a bit of a relaxing holiday) ....

PS. Can anyone spot where my camera is? .....

No 46. Boet and the Joker have begun their UK tour ...

(viewed 1735 times)
Boet and the Joker
Have begun their UK tour
They have matching shades and t-shirts,
(who'd ask for anything more).

On the roads near Milton Keynes
They should be somewhat wary,
For there may lie a daring dude
Who could make things quite scary.

Hairless for the most part,
And a certain shade of lime,
You'll find him on his belly
Face down in all the grime.

With his vital bit of tackle
Pulled out and polished bright,
He strives to do his very best
To gain his next highlight ...

Inspired by Boet's and Joker's UK tour ..... I have added a bird to test out Swamprose's theory ;-)
