Nice art, but anyone with their finger up their nose isn't going to get the joke unless they went to art college like us.

Keep up the good work, though! I have a feeling that Scrag Ends can go far!

Attention comic strip Editors! This is a hot one! Don't let it get away!!

Wannabee JOHN :0)

"...anyone with their finger up their nose isn't going to get the joke unless they went to art college like us."

I spent approximately ten minutes at art college, discovered it was boring, that all the girls had rings through their noses, dyed maroon hair and an attitude from Hell, felt the call of a bacon butty, and promptly left. My relationship with Rene Magritte was purely platonic.

"I have a feeling that Scrag Ends can go far!"

Preferably off the end of Fleetwood Pier when the tide's in.

Wouldn't it be better and more fun if the tide was out?

Anyway you've posted this cartoon before so get your finger out of your nose or you'll go blind.

Brian Hughes said...


I thought I'd posted it before as I double-checked through all the previous cartoons but couldn't find it anywhere. Whatever the case, it's staying up for now because I can't be bothered rooting out another one.

JahTeh said...

I remembered, Sedgwick put it on his blog.

My mind is full of this type of crappy trivia.

Brian Hughes said...

Ah well...there you go...although I wouldn't call Sedgwick's site crappy trivia...well, not to his face anyway.

Ozfemme said...

there it is again... bacon buttie....oh dear.

Brian Hughes said...


And again I haven't had my breakfast yet. I'm going to have to have a bacon butty now. As my Mum always says, at this rate I'll end up looking like a bacon butty. Sounds good to'd certainly make me more popular.

Dear John - I didn't go to art college
and I certainly know about applehead.
he had persian rugs where he painted
and dressed in suits to do it.

re bacon butties - despite a lack of college, I have compensated by being widely-read, and this week, HELLO! magazine informs me that bacon butties were served after the dancing at the wedding of Peter Phillips and Autumn Kelly ... Peregrine Armstrong-Jones was responsible for the catering. no apples.

back on topic - the frame is, again, superb.
Q1: Why are you not rich and famous?

... like Koilie who can't actually sing.
and like Kidman who is a crap actor.

"Q1: Why are you not rich and famous?"


That's easy. I don't have any money and nobody's ever heard of me.

LaLa said...

Very Clever. If it hadn't been for the movie Thomas Crown Affair, sadly I wouldn't have gotten it.

I was dying about your experience at art college. It was the same way here in Bucks County.

Brian Hughes said...


You mean somebody actually watched the Thomas Crown Affair all the way through?

LaLa said...

LOL, well I definitely have ADD TV watching tendencies so I think it took me at least 3 tries.

Ann O'Dyne said...

Google Home page has a lovely Magritte masthead for today as he was born 110 years ago.

Brian Hughes said...

It's this season's look...bowler hat and floating apple.
