  1. M27Holts says:

    Aye. Leave it up to the player to choose. I can see how Mo would be historically fixated by “Camel-toe”…

  2. Dr John the Wipper says:

    Well, being nudists for more than 50 years now, the wife and I are just wondering what all that fuss is about. Most of the sporting I did (swimming, volleyball) was in holidays, and “in uniform”. I still DO have a swimming trunk, but it is Model 1968 and not just worn down.

  3. Dr John the Wipper says:

    Addendum: the wife does does swimming condition training in a pool that regrettably DOES require a bathing suit. If it gets worn, she looks for the cheapest comfortable replacement.

  4. M27Holts says:

    Ah, so john the wipper is a boastful nickname then…haha

  5. Jesus F Iscariot says:

    Mo agrees with the International Olympic Committee, that obscenely profitable mafia-like cadre. Damned female amateur athletes should just compliantly flash their asses for sales purposes and shut up and realize that they are just the act and not the owners. Like Christ with his G-string and six-pack abs hanging on the cross display prop. Me too indeed!!!

  6. Jesus F Iscariot says:

    Love M27Holtz observation: “Mo would be historically fixated by “Camel-toe”…”

  7. Robert says:

    In the original Olympic games the competitors were nude, I believe.

  8. Dr John the Wipper says:


    Yes, but only male contenders and spectators.
    Strictly forbidden for females!

    It would be REALLY hard, and un-wished-for, to implement today.

  9. M27Holts says:

    Naked cricket would be particularly dangerous. And would give the fast bowler an overwhelming advantage…

  10. Dr John the Wipper says:


    I just KNEW there was a reason that cricket was no Olympic sport is those days!

  11. Mo’s disobedient glass of Guiness is a nice touch.

    Fine point of theology: is it disobedience when Mo disobeys himself?

  12. M27Holts says:

    Guinness? Black tin…could easily be “We are ghosts on the moon” imperial stout with honeycomb, maple and pecan. By the “left handed giant” brewery company, bristol…

  13. Son of Glenner says:

    Ophelia Benson: Fine point of alcohology: it’s a can of Guinness, not a glass. M always drinks Guinness, like J, even although it is haram – glasses in the old Cock & Bull pub, cans at home. Personally, I think Guinness is haramless in modest quantities altough I don’t much like it myself.

  14. M27Holts says:

    When in the nuclear…he is drinking a glass of dark dense liquid. It could be any stout? Why do we assume Guinness?

  15. Son of Glenner says:

    M27Holts: There’s enough lettering on the can in panel 1 to show that it’s Guinness! Our esteemed Author goes to all the trouble of inserting little details like that and you don’t even notice them!

    As to why it is haram, please see the Koran.

  16. M27Holts says:

    All alcohol is haram. And the guinness is only worth drinking if the pub is on the atlantic coast of the emerald isle the tinned stuff pales into comparrison….

  17. Rrr says:

    M27, which is the Atlantic coast then, of that isle?

    Or is that the same riddle as in Storm P’s ads for Tuborg? (‘Hvergang!’)

  18. M27Holts says:

    The west coast of Southern Ireland. I had a magic walk along the coast rd. About a mile or so in pitch black, just the sound of the wind and the sea roaring. The pubs lights a beacon in the distance…when you open the door a roaring fire and the landlord is already getting you a pint going…no better atmospheric pubs anywhere in europe…and the guinness was nectar….

  19. Son of Glenner says:

    M27Holts: A nice near-poetic piece of writing from someone who says he only got a “C” in O-Grade English!

  20. Holistic Ape says:

    I am for free choice in clothing, including and especially burkha, in sports.

  21. M27Holts says:

    Well. Like I said, i probably passed by the skin of my teeth…My last exam in early june 1981 was mathematics which was a breeze compared to the english paper about 2 days earlier. I then ran home and binned my school uniform, freedom till sept 6th, three months holiday, longest I can remember having….

  22. hotrats says:

    M27Holts: in naked cricket, could you be out CBW?

  23. M27Holts says:

    Hmmm The wicket isn’t that high. I got hit in the box area several times by fast bowlers and it wasn’t pleasant in each and every occaision. But really, anybody daft enough to open their body up against a fast bowler and get the ball square on the pubic bone, crushing the genatalia under the box deserves the severe pain that will ensue. I got my nose broken twice by the ball as it deflected off the shoulder of the bat. But I was tail end charlie, no 11 and I preffered using my 194cm height and fast run up to bowl right arm fast myself, in the days before helmets and pads othef than gloves, legs and box I managed to hospitalise many a shit batsman when I played at minor club level between the ages of 17 and 21…then I found ladies…

  24. Laripu says:

    Almost everyone dislikes one school subject or another. I liked and did very well in English and math, but disliked chemistry. I could memorize enough for a B but hated every second of it. History was even worse, deadly dull. But as I grew up I started to like the kind of history that describes culture and how people lived, rather than the wars and the political manipulations of inbred royalty.

    The one saving grace was that I had two very nice teachers with opposite and often stated views. One was a socialist, a woman born in Canada. The other was extremely anti-left, because he had spent time in a prison in Yugoslavia under Tito.

    He had a charming Slavic accent. When discussing the conditions of life under various monarchies he would say “De peasants were oppressed, suppressed, depressed and all dese tra-la-las” – while rolling his eyes.

    She taught us this, about resistance to socialism:
    Please don’t believe the use of force
    Is how we change the social course.
    The use of force, you surely know,
    Is how we keep the status quo.

    Fifty years on, I still remember the sweetness of good teachers.

  25. M27Holts says:

    Chemistry was more interesting in a practical sense, we spent most of our childhood making explosives to out do the boring legal fireworks you could buy. How times have changed, weed killer bombs would get you in serious trouble now….our chemistry teachers told us how to build them..its a different world now…

  26. Son of Glenner says:

    Laripu: Whether one likes or dislikes a school subject depends on the teacher of that subject. When I was a teacher, many many years ago, my pupils must have thoroughly detested my subject!

  27. M27Holts says:

    You didn’t teach RE did you? We had that twice weekly, what a waste of our time better off teaching us plasteting or summat…

  28. Son of Glenner says:

    M27 Holts: Me? Teach RE?

    Heaven forbid!

  29. M27Holts says:

    Woodwork then? Our woodwork teachers were both scottish. And the psycho geography teacher we called madman mcduff because he pinned one of the empty heads in the remedial class to the wall with one hand and threatened to gouge his eyes out…can’t imagine a teacher being as incendary now…haha

  30. M27Holts says:

    The RE teacher was a right nutjob as well…went into how sex outside marriage was the work of satan and other baptist shite. He was called Jackson and we all cheered when psycho morris had enough and landed a peach of a headbutt when he was getting the hairdryer treatment from jehova jackson as we named him…he got expelled and joined the army…morris that is…

  31. Choirboy says:

    The naked cricket reminds me of a televised match some time ago when a batsman was hit in the box by a ninety mile an hour delivery.
    He crumpled to the ground and was incapacitated for some time, being ministered to by paramedics.
    As he returned to the crease the commentator informed us,
    “One ball left”

  32. Deimos says:

    A naked summer Olympics could be fun but nothing compared to an unclothed Winter Olympics!
    The ski jumping alone could qualify as the greatest spectacle in history. Let’s get it done before global warming cancels it forever.

  33. M27Holts says:

    Cricket was the most conservative of sports, along wirh Golf , Horse racing and polo oh, and croquet…who knows anybody who has a croquet lawn? Thought not… and Naked Croquet…bet that has been played in the swinging echelons of debauchery…
