  4. Tried to be funny? You failed completely, you little miserable creature!

    This poor man was punished enough as long as he was still alive and there a many people trying to damage his reputation as the world's greatest archeologist even after his death.

    Howard Carter was never given the respect he fully deserved because he came from a relatively poor family and the so called high society couldn't "forgive" him for that.

    He was never knighted and never got an honory doctorate in England. Shame on this country that only long after his death recognized what a brilliant man he was.

    And shame on you trying to ridicule a man you are not worth to polish his shoes!

    1. Calm down. It was just a jolly jape! A bit of a wheeze. I'm sure you don't mean all that.

    2. I do mean a every last word you disconsolate miniature brute!

      I am considering I will call to your domicile with a sharp cricket bat and show you meaning of pain you ‘mofo’ (as they say in parts South Central Los Angeles.)

      Howard was a very nice man with charming teeth and other physical accoutrements which were fit to make a hungry personage mouth water.

      Shame on you again!

      (Also - I often wonder why Indiana Jones was given a Doctorate when poor Howard was left out in the cold outside with the water from the eaves dribbling down the back of his delicate starched collar.)

    3. I find the lack of respect for the achievements of notable personalities just intolerable! This cartoon has nothing to do with fun at all.

    4. Thank you for your glowing comments Madame. Kind ladies such as yourself make my humble efforts all worthwhile!

I am a descended from a long line of conga dancers. I occasionally wear shoes. I gave up going to the toilet twenty years ago - it's a filthy habit. I have a pet bunny called Mucky - he's a filthy rabbit.
