Norman’s Full House

A shambolic post about books, Dear Reader, inspired by the passing of a man called Barry, best known for his love of films…

*Fucking hell, Clicky, how did you find that? I remember watching that interview on telly at the time…*

*No fucking way! That advert was shown every time I went to the pictures…*

Legs and Roobs discusses animals

… And conversations last night with Leggy and Cade…

Cade and Roob discussing physics

I discovered my Native American animal is Stag, Dear Reader…

Pre-Stag Weekend nights out. Jesus. You know the kind.’


Hugo’s a beaver apparently…

*’Cultish’ is incredibly offensive, Clicky… Funny as FUCK but liable to give those with a weak constitution an attack of the vapers…*

Leggy has now published Longrider’s anthology of short stories, Blackjack… And what a stunning collection of tales it is…

Blackjack front and back

*I offer him copy editing services for free, Clicky… That way I get to read the stories for free… It’s a kinda win/win situation…*

Whilst the publisher provided the front cover, the author supplied the artwork for the back…

While a count of 17 is a good hand, the player may wish to draw for a higher total.

Three of Blackjack’s stories appeared in The Underdog Anthology...


… Along with Hugo’s story Jesus Saves

*I hope he publishes it at The Probe, Clicky… I think a lot of people will want to read ‘Cultish’ after that…*

Roob tries to talk to Hugo

*Ah, I can’t make him listen to me, Clicky… I can’t make anyone do any fing…*

Anyhoo, Leggy has now managed to publish a book a month since Christmas. Well done him! And I really hope he’ll publish one of his own stories in July…

*Knot at all, Clicky, it’s ready… He let me read it… /lights up and exhales… It’s been ready for fucking ages…*

UBU The Writing Bug

Of course a ‘full house’ isn’t a term in blackjack, but it is one in poke ‘er

*I guess my shambles can be a bit gaga, Clicky… /bites lip… Oh well, shall we finish up and have a Song?*

      1. Jealous of who? You? Thankful I’m not you would be a more accurate way to put it. What was it you said, Roob? Blue + red = purple = “there’s your growth”. The dreaded C word, right?

            1. I think we have a miscommunication, Huge :O. If you’re talking genitals and ‘purple’, then ‘bell end’ is the first thing that will spring…


              1. Pussy lover, eh? If you say so, Roob.

                “The word pussy is a noun, an adjective, and in rare uses a verb in the English language. It has several meanings, including use as slang, as euphemism, and as vulgarity. Common meanings of the noun include “cat”, as well as “coward or weakling”, and “the human vulva or vagina”, or as a synecdoche, “sexual intercourse with a woman”. Because of its multiple senses including both innocent and vulgar connotations, “pussy” is often the subject of double entendre.”


                It sounds oddly familiar though, doesn’t it?


                I can’t imagine what you might be trying to say, and I’m sure your readers can’t either…

                1. Have you published Jesus Saves yet at The Probe yet, Hugo? You think you should – it’s a good story, written well…

                  It could garner interest for Bunny Snuff…

                  And Cultish…


                2. Oh look…

                  ‘Girls as young as nine are seeking surgery to alter the appearance of their genitals, the BBC has reported.

                  ‘Gynaecologist Dr Naomi Crouch aired concerns over doctors referring an increasing number of young girls for labiaplasty, which involves reducing the size of the labia minora (the flaps of skin on either side of the vaginal opening).

                  ‘She told the Victoria Derbyshire show: “Girls will sometimes come out with comments like, ‘I just hate it, I just want it removed,’ and for a girl to feel that way about any part of her body – especially a part that’s intimate – is very upsetting.”’



                3. Regards J____ Saves?

                  ‘Many people were keen to sneer at the Harry Potter phenomenon, which swept the globe soon after the release of the first book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, 20 years ago. It seemed such a derivative affair, like a cross between Star Wars and an Enid Blyton novel. Indeed, like Star Wars – and Lord of the Rings, The Matrix, Jaws and Superman – the first Harry Potter book clearly employed the universal monomyth outlined by the anthropologist Joseph Campbell: orphaned boy, often brought up by uncle and aunt, is called to his quest by an old man in a beard, befriends accomplices, is given tasks, embarks on a trek, before confronting the dark lord/monster in his lair.’
