GAMBLE

George and Lynne are on a pedalo. A woman on a nearby pedalo says that she and Antonio got married on the spur of the moment while on holiday in Las Vegas. Lynne asks if her that was a bit of a gamble.

George and Lynne are stuck out in the sea. The pedalo they hired was faulty as the pedals face the wrong way. George has been pedalling but they just keep going round in circles.

Antonio has gone out to get George and Lynne and bring them back to the beach. Both the woman and Antonio run the pedalo stall. As they are newly married, the woman is still very excited and likes to tell her customers about her wedding. Antonio just keeps quiet.

After they get back to the beach, an argument ensues about the refund George thinks he is entitled to. It is awkward because at the same time Lynne is making dinner arrangements with the woman. George and Antonio come to an agreement but it isn't pleasant. The dinner is a very uncomfortable affair.

And that, my friends, is it. After 2 and a bit years and 444 explanations, I am calling time on my George and Lynne based endeavours. The site will stay up so you can read forever more, or until a new, more powerful internet is invented that will no doubt destroy us all.

Thank you for all your visits and comments. I do it all for you (and me).

  4. Aww, shame. It has been hugely entertaining. It was amazing that you always managed to find a good angle on even the most vacuous of the strips (and some of them really were awful).

    Cracking good job. Thanks for the laughs.

    Thank you friend, please let us know if you start anything else.

  8. Many thanks for all the laughs over the past few years, Hughesie. I'll miss my daily date with our heroes and their alliterative friends.

    Shame there isn't an archive you could pilfer....

  9. Very sorry to hear that it's the end. I have grown very attached to the 80s world you've created for George and Lynne, a world of gala dinners, fishing trips, shopping and lunching and alcoholic neighbours. A world that I somehow feel is the one that the scriptwriters themselves would have created if they'd been allowed to.

  11. Every good thing has to end, and this blog has been a super example of 'entertaining stuff on the internet that you couldn't really do in any other medium'. Thank you very much for all the time and effort you've put into it.

  12. Later than most, but thanks for these insights. Lynne will probably be talking about, and recommending, this site when she's at anniversary reunions with her contemporaries when she was an undergrad at Newnham...
