Do you think you could red line the bit where the funnies are supposed to be .

By the way, could you do it? No , didn't think so , all you can do is gas .

Maybe I'll have a go, when the first one is ready I'll be sure to let you know so you can try it for size.

On a more serious note I would have thought that it may be quite an interesting posting, certainly much more interesting than Tipex'ing over newspaper spelling mistakes.
