from the archives, week 44 

SOB A6 sketchbook number 5, late '94.

Rather fond of a couple of images in these two. Makes a nice change.

Presumably you all know who Reg Varney is (or was - is he still about?) Quite why I had him in mind fourteen years ago I can't recall.

"Oedipus Schmoedipus" refers to the old Jewish gag: "Oedipus Schmoedipus - so long as a boy loves his mother". Something like that.

"Oedipus Schmoedipus" - is also a pretty good album by Barry Adamson. I've never heard the joke before, nice to know the origin.

On a similar, but even less tasteful, note: I was embarrassingly pleased with myself for coming up with "holocaust schmolocaust" about a year ago, thinking myself terribly witty, clever and original. Until I googled it and found out how many others had got there first.
