Thought it worth mentioning-

Just bought a t shirt off the Viz merchandise website and saved £5.30 because of that Black Friday nonsense. It doesn't look to be mentioned on there until you get to the checkout. More than covered the postage though. Thats a mates pressie sorted.

Yay. My 'To the tasting table' made it into the profanisaurus. Some editing, and some italics, but hey! When do I get my fiver? Ahh.

It got a Sid James style laugh out of the wife, so I'd call it a success.

This has been bugging me for days.

Current issue of Viz. Big Issue ad (real).

Is that the same homeless guy given a makeover on the Friday/Saturday Night Armistice years ago?

What's your least favourite Viz advert? For me, it's "Club De Fromage", and those awful sounding comedy books that have characters with wacky names in come a close second. I respect the Aqua Velvas for giving Viz thousands of quid for the tiny handful of views they get on Youtube.

Yeah the Club Fromage cunts for sure. There's one especially hateful looking cunt in their ads.

My least favourites are that Powerball advert with that tedious “It’s the best workout you can do with your wrist - Seymour Legg” Amazon review quote and those absolutely gash t-shirts with “I’m Barry Scott!” and other assorted shit4cuntz phrases on them.

They always make me think “Are there people who don’t really understand Viz and just buy it because of the swearing and cartoon tits?” Because that’s the only way I can imagine a regular Viz reader brain dead and unaware enough to think “yes, I must spend 20 quid on a cheap t-shirt with ‘Don’t Hassel The Hoff!’ on it.”

Do they still have all the wank lines?  They make it extra difficult to explain to my wife that Viz is well sophisticated humour actually, not just a load of tits and swearing and wanking.

What's with those horrible pants that are always advertised in there? Are they for smuggling drugs in to clubs or something? Why would anyone buy them?

My mate has got a pair and yes, he uses them for smuggling drugs into various places where he shouldn't be taking drugs.

Don't suppose anyone has a scan of Brian May - My Nits Hell?  Can't find it anywhere.

Any help appreciated - even a note of which annual it's in.

Apologies if anyone else has pointed it out, but it's in Issue 58.

p.s Not only did this thread make me sign up for CaB, I also bought a subcription to Viz.

Reckon they will be using this pic like the one of Bowie reading Viz?
viz has posted it across their social media, they're pretty chuffed i think

The placement of the syringe and oxide canister is pretty funny. This is someone dealing drugs from their front door btw. They bagged a real Pablo Escobar.

Hearty congrats.

Not heard a peep from them. In fact, I had to pay for the privilege of finding out I was in it!

Get in!

Always wanted a letter published in Viz but too lazy/unfunny to make it happen.
