The Saturday Comics: The Snobby Dalek

Doctor Who has starred in many comic strips, but not this one. It starred his enemies, the Daleks. It is an old TV Century 21 strip, simply called The Daleks, which appeared in the 1960’s. The art is a little off, and in a few short weeks they’d fix it so that the Daleks looked as they should. But for a while, readers were treated to a comic strip header featuring The Snobby Dalek.

DALEK SNOBS

However, the new Daleks still had the same problem. While they looked more accurate, they still had the same snobby expression.

Eventually the powers that were said “the heck with it!” and took the Daleks out of the header entirely, thought they did return towards the end in a completely new layout.

And in case you’re wondering, The Doctor never appeared in this version of the strip.

Imponderable #127: The Strange Death of Dwarf Ramsay

15 Feb

February 15, 2016

This is old news. It is from 2011 but just this weekend popped up on my Facebook feed. (That’s an Imponderable right there.)

To recap: Percy Foster, dwarf-porn lookalike of Chef Gordon Ramsay, died under what is being understated as “bizarre circumstances.” He was found partially eaten in a badger hole. Crack investigators have not ruled out suicide.

Okayyyyy.

Well.

All I know is, if there is a better headline than “Gordon Ramsay’s dwarf porn star lookalike found dead in badger den half eaten” I haven’t read it.

With all his money, he’s buying a soda stream? Jeez, if you can afford a BMW you can afford name-brand soda.
Why couldn’t he buy Pepsi?
The question is Imponderable.

 

There have been 126 previous Imponderables from the news. Check them out starting here with #1.
