Where do these things keep popping up from? Anyone would think I'd spent my entire life immersed in computer technology or something. *cough*

Did I mention there's an Xmas Competition where you can win fabulous prizes, lasting glory and that? Just submit mention any picture idea that you think would might make a good illustration for this series. The winning idea will be published prominently with full accreditation to you in this very blog! Gasp!

So far I've had entries from as far afield as, er, Belgium. All from Spanish Goth. Is there anyone else out there? Hello?

I'm surprised you didn't use something like this for "analog"...

Btw, if you like, feel free to enter this in the XMas Competition...

Brom said...

Ah yes the Welsh sign.... absolutley hilarious!!

That sign and the associated story could have been written by Jasper Fforde! Fookin' amazin!

I have one. Ecksmas competition entry, that is.

It took me a long time to find the graphix for the entry, and then a while to do some creative photoshopping, which was done poorly - but I will e-mail it tonite as I am going on holiday tomorrow and it is on my home pooter which is not going on holiday as it needs to stay home and keep the desk from floating off into the ethernet.

Thank the Goddess that all you have to deal with is MY run-on sentances, instead of 4 years of Palin-isms!

oh my God I love this shit!!!!!! WHere DID you find all of it????

Mr Farty said...

Debi - That's not analog, that's downloading. Or possibly taking a dump.

Brom - There's a whole book of these somewhere...

MAW - Yeah, like Jasper Fforde is a real name!

Sew - I can't open your file with any of my paint packages. Maybe you could take a photo of the screen and post that?

VM - I just make them up.

Sorry, Farty--I was breaking the word into syllables...

#Debi said...

Too much Scaryduck, I guess... :)

Mr Farty said...

Debi - Quite a few of my own efforts have been broken into syla- subalil- bits, so that's ok.
