on rude bastards...

the loss...

this is the 1st in a series titled:
"How El Barbudo got his beard back" by Monstee

The Sordid Truth...?

Inspired by this post over at Foot Eater's http://fishwhackerswindle.blogspot.com/2006/01/return-of-limericks.html

More Buttons

After the rush, I've had no new scripts for a couple of days, so El Barbudo gave me some suggestions for a few new banners.

Once again, remember to change the square [] brackets for anguar <> ones.

Running Totals and New Buttons

Blunt Cogs is now 2 weeks old, and already we've published lots of cartoon strips. Running total for submitted scripts that have been built and put up:

Andraste: 1
Anti-Barney: 3
Binty McShae: 6
Dr Evil Scientist: 5
El Barbudo: 3
Kim: 1
El Barbudo & Kim: 2
Foot Eater: 4
Gorilla Bananas: 2
Hungbunny: 1
Sarah Laughs: 3
Twenty Major: 1, although he's never come back to comment

Now some of you have been to El Barbudo's site, found his Blunt Cogs banner and placed it on your own sites to help promote it. So in honour of this anniversary, I have created a few more collectors edition banners, along with the code you need if you wish to place any or all of them in your sidebars.

Do remember, of course, to exchange the square brackets[] for angular ones<>

Advice from the Master

Gorilla Bananas has joined in with his first strip for Blunt Cogs

This is Andraste's first strip

Burns Night

Nearly forgot it's Burns Night tonight. I couldn't let it pass without mention...

Technical Differences

This one was scripted and built by Sarah Laughs. I'm sure feedback would be appreciated

Knock Knock

With thanks to Sarah for building this one - Binty's latest. For those who might be bothered, if you look at the bottom right corner you'll see her different signature icon.

Anonymous Comments

If I ever get another stupid arsehole leaving an anonymous comment on my site slagging me off then I will just refer them to this cartoon strip. Binty, you're a genius and, to use El Barbudo's phrase, I tug my beard with great respect at you.

Capital Punishment

If you're looking for a context for this one then I suggest you follow the postings and comments on Binty's, Kim's and Anti-Barney's blogs on this topic.

New Look

Just a quick thanks to Kim who's been working to the detriment of his family by revamping the site and creating a really cool header.

I've agreed to let him add advertising to the site to try and earn enough to buy a bunch of flowers to placate his long suffering wife who, I get the impression, isn't so enamoured with all the time he's spending here.

So click on the ads you cunts.

Written Comparisons

If you can't make sense of this, I suggest you visit Dr Maroon's site and read the ongoing installments of his Beggar's Opera

Cry for help

Hi folks,

There is no doubt that we're all having a lot of fun with this, and the scripts are coming in fast and furious. What this means, however, is that I don't have enough spare time to keep up.

What I need are a few people that use (and have a copy of) Photoshop, who would be prepared to help build the strips out of the scripts sent in.

I have created templates for the panels and the characters, so as long as you understand how to use layers, it's basically a cut 'n' paste job

If you are a bit wary about leaving your details here in front of this mad bunch of cartoon characters, then please e-mail me if you can help

For that matter, if there are any "Flash" experts out there who think they could build a character generator, like the SouthPark one, then please let me know. If this takes off, we may have to worry about copyright infringement, so I'd like a plan B option to work on.



P.S. Please also take the time to comment on these strips - good or bad. Everyone who's taken the time to come up with the ideas and create them and would love to get feedback. If you have to insult, then at least make it witty, or turn it into another script.

Just Say No...

Remember kids - don't do drugs!

Character Witness

Proof of ID

This is Binty's first strip

Damien Rice

Who the fuck is Damien Rice? Is this one that's more meaningful to the Irish contingent, or am I just totally un-hip and un-happening, man?

OK Ladies...

The first strip from Dr Evil Scientist. In fact he sent me 2 scripts so I'll upload the next one tomorrow.

Blood on a Finger

Here's one from Hungbunny. I was going to post it tomorrow but he claims it's his birthday, so this is by way of a wee gift to the sick cunt

Foot Eater Tries Too Hard

This is Foot Eater's first strip. Please feel free to comment/rate/insult as necessary.
