Subject: RE: messing about on the river

stand by to be assulted, insulted and derided by all Kiwis!!!

Wal Footrot and THE DOG are not Australian!!!!!!!!!!! We do occasionally acknowledge the existence of our offshore island wherin dwells Alan, Alison etc. but please don't confuse us.

Sadly Murray Ball's Flynn on whom THE DOG was based, died this week aged sixteen and a half. Murray has also given up producing Footrot Flats cartoons on a regular basis, although all the compilations and some new ones are still available in NZ. If you can't find a local source, get in touch with me directly and I'll organise a relief parcel.
