The Humourous Japery of Reginald Whiskers
February 18th, 1857.
My man-servant, Botter, bought me the morning’s news-papers today, as he does every day lest he wishes to receive a swift boot to the backside. Today, however, I rather wished he had not bothered, for a quick flick through the day’s copy of The London Early Morning News Stories and Illustrated Plates was filled with nothing but depression; trouble with the natives in India, crime on the streets of our great nation’s capital, disease rife among the filthy working-classes, and so on and so ruddy on.
Is it too much to ask that I can enjoy my breakfast of grilled salmon, caviar and champagne without having the woes of those less fortunate than myself thrust in my face? Indeed, I was so enraged by the morning’s news that I hurled the paper at Botter, causing him to receive many nasty paper-cuts to the face and eyeballs, which cheered me up somewhat.
Happily, there is always one part of the news-paper that never fails to fill me with joy, and that is the section containing all the marvellous strip-cartoons. They really do publish some jolly fine comics there, including such spectacular strips as Ala Kazam, The Magical Muslim; Ethel Ethereal, The Little Dead Girl and my current favourite, The Humourous Japery of Reginald Whiskers.
The latter comic-strip, about a most amusing sarcastic cat, is never less than smirksome, and today’s was thankfully no exception, which brightened up my day quite considerably.
I have included the comic in question with this entry, so that others may enjoy the comical cartoon cat. Enjoy!
Those of you who have not masturbated so regularly so as to diminish your eye-sight completely, will have noticed that there have been a few aesthetic changes around here, as well as the introduction of an astonishing new About Page. Please do take a moment to admire the fresh decor, and do let us know what you think. As long as your thoughts are firmly in the positive, that is.
Mr. Diesel, long time supporter of his lordship and the chap behind Mattress Police and humor-blogs.com (where his lordship currently resides at an incredibly sexual 69th place), has launched a new offensive upon the world of comedy, called The Clay Pigeon, chock-full of amusing articles and witty writings. Although nowhere near as hilarious as his lordship’s own scrawlings (naturally), we still encourage you to visit the Pigeon by clicking the image below!
News Just In This Very Moment!
