I should really put some proper posts in between these, but I rather like this set, which just came to me today. See if you can guess the theme.

Laurie said...

Um...are we supposed to guess each picture first?

Adder, copperplate, that's not Alexei Sayle, uh, Excalibur. No, I really got nothin'. Sorry.

Mr H said...

Are they all twats with revolting cocks collections?

john.g. said...

Monty Python!

Jose said...

I think it's Great Britain, although having seen the monty python suggestion from previous I am tempted by that.

Mr Farty said...

Laurie - Better than you think. You can guess the connection at any time.
Adder - close, but you need the full surname.
Copperplate - Correct!
It's Roy "Chubby" Brown, but Alexei Sayle has the same occupation, which is ??? (5 letters)
Excalibur - Correct!
Also, I'll give you #8, cos it's Elementary.

Mr H - No revolting cocks this time, sorry.

John - I can see how you thought that, but no.

Jose - Nope. This theme runs from Notre Dame to the Wild West, from Aachen to Zyncho, from Galadriel to Galahad. Yeah.

Jose said...

Oh, that makes the world of difference *rolls eyes*

The theme is fonts.

Lesley said...

NOW I AM JUST MORE CONFUSED THAN I WAS BEFORE. Plus now I am crying a little.

Mr Farty said...

Jose - Hurrah.

Lesley - Awww. *stretches arms across to Merka to hug Lesley*

OMG! Jose was right with fonts!! Wow. Between the two of you there are some serious big brains going on over there. (Note to self: "Do not enter academic decathlon with Mr. Farty or Jose YOU WILL LOSE.") ("As further evidenced by the way you had to look up how to spell decathlon.")

but no gill sans? NO GILL SANS? How could you do this to me?

Mr Farty said...

Grit - I give in. How do you illustrate Gill Sans? Sounds a bit fishy to me...
