THIS PANDEMIC COULD BE THE REBIRTH OF MORRIS DANCING WITH CLEAN HANKIES!

"The new lad, he's not from round here is he?" As PAUL SIMON once said, "For Cathy wherever i may find her.", or something like that. This cartoon is dedicated to the loveley CATHY SIMPSON. A freelance illustrator to be found on her well worth a visit website at:

http://www.cathysimpsonillustration.com/ Cathy left a comment on my previous rambling about dancing men in Manchester waving hankies. It struck me that as everybody on the planet is going to die from a mexican swine flu pandemic within days or weeks, or definitly before the next footy season. We need something to take our mind off our ills n' troubles. SONG, DANCE and CLEAN HANKIES , along with grown men drinking a lot and hitting each other with sticks( and thats not just the dancers).The MORRIS DANCER would seem to fit the prescription bill for your flu antibiotics admirably. The pandemic could bring about the rebirth of the MORRIS DANCER. There y'go, as they say when times look bad,' every cloud has .......Another cloud trailing along behind it'

Oooh ... thanks for the mention, Tim. After I'd finished laughing at your post - which took a few minutes - I remembered one of the top tips from Viz, which suggested a cure for bird flu. Something along the lines of 'Simply put Lem Sip, or Day Nurse, into your bird bath. And Night nurse at night, for owls.' Looks like you've already cracked the cure for the latest plague!

Way too long an exposure at school in woolybackland methinks.
