Szpylbert has now set his sights on being a successful “academician” in his day job at his university. That will inevitably mean producing more high quality research, and that always means learning new stuff. But as Abigail Adams has once warned, learning “is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and diligence”. Sounds depressing already.
Last post of the year. Szpylbert enjoys messing around with his phone and (more or less accidentally) took this photo. But what is it? An eye staring at you? Or perhaps a flying saucer? Have a guess…
A happy and successful New Year to you all!
After Ferdinand’s recent success with his promotion to Senior Lab Rat, this time Szpylbert is in luck – winning first prize at a Comic Competition held at his university. The prize is a substantial £5 lunch voucher. Unfortunately, it’s redeemable only on campus – which, due to the quality of the food around here, diminishes its value somewhat. But that’s just your cartoonist being nitpicky… Szpylbert thanks the jury!
Dorbonkon was never satisfied with his dead end job as a hairdresser on planet Melmac. So he decided to become a space terrorist and spread fear and violence across the galaxy. Now he feels powerful and respected. He finally knows that he his someone special – just like his mother always said…
Your artist was interested to discover that there’s a surprising degree of controversy about whether it’s okay for a man to tuck undershirts and shirts into his underpants. Some self-proclaimed “style experts” advise against it – even going so far to call it the quintessence of dorkiness. Szpylbert’s position on this couldn’t be clearer: Robert Downey Jr. and John Major can’t be wrong. Tucked-in shirts confidently demonstrate an ability to keep matters under control in today’s world of chaos. What could be more stylish?
Some people claim to do things more than completely. Like trying really hard or telling the truth. These lucky individuals can do stuff 110%, 1,000%, sometimes even 1,000,000%. Truly impressive!
