Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair

Growing up, we always envied those people who had a vocation. Our ambition was formless, plastic. But we're confident that at no time in our life has our dream involved being quoted in the South London Press about turds. Yet here we are. Something to put on our epitaph.

Just so we're clear, we didn't seek this out.

Congratulations, today dog poo, tomorrow the world!

It is a mighty calling and you wear the cloak of responsibility lightly - for S Luxton, on the other hand, it is part of the attire she sought and she may regard it as a self-inflicted hair-shirt.

Still, better than being dogmatic (!) about other things...

First of all: the above pun by "anonymous" is appalling.
Secondly: I read the article and noticed your comment about the "steaming pile of turd" illustration. I was dissappointed. I thought that added a bit of life to the pic. Also the slightly distracted look of the dog (embarassed?) and the leg cocking motion work well. Perhaps a dog peeing alternative to add variety?

On a lighter note, I was filming a scene at the weekend alongside John Sessions about the discovery of Penicillin. Between 'takes' he'd regale stories of famous actors getting pissed, or lapse into impressions; the funniest of which was Ray Winstone as Henry VIII does poetry by Percy Bysse Shelley.

Apols for the shameless namedrop.

That sounds deeply tedious.

unlike the first prize in the Brockley Central raffle, a night out and dinner with Hugh. Second prize two nights out and dinner with Hugh.

Of course that's a fantasy as Hugh tends to avoid eating out in the UK.

You could have stenciled on your grave?

I'm not having a burial - being ingested by dogs instead

The Sessions impressions sounds pretty funny. Of course, Hugh going on and on about how great he is and bikes is far more interesting...

I like the headline!

The council's looked on the dogs' work and despaired. You looked on their work and despaired. The journalist looked on your work and despaired for the future of local newspapers. You looked on your culmination of your life's work being a quote in a local paper about poo and despaired.

Many levels to that one!

Great idea Nick - ultimate revenge, eaten by dogs and then reproduced on the streets of Lewisham in small, steaming, brown piles!

Not every dog owner would allow their dog to eat suspect meat and I'm sure most of them (the owners) are happy to scoop up the dog chocolate that Prolongs Active Life.
