I've never seen the Who Shop but I have been to the Doctor Who Exhibit - 3 times, first two times in Llangollen then last time when it moved to Blackpool. It was bigger in Llangollen and had a really big shop crammed full of Doctor Who stuff and a café with a TARDIS revolving cake stand. ^_^ In Blackpool it feels smaller, cramped and the shop is so much poorer and space is taken up by Star Wars and other American sci-fi merchendise. :'(

Yes! The WHO Shop is in East Ham (the one in London). It's on the main street opposite the Underground station.
4 Station Parade, High Street, East Ham, London
see website: http://www.thewhoshop.com/
It's ace, aithough they do have a few american things, since the return of Dr Who and Torchwood, they've been doing a roaring trade!

That's a good book John Steed. I've got it too. It's a shame Matt Groenig didn't do more books like that (not Simpsons or Futurama related).
He's done more than one book. Before he did the Simpsons, he spent years drawing a cartoon called "Life in Hell." There were several books made of those cartoons - Love Is Hell, Work Is Hell, The Big Book of Hell, etc. The main character is Binky, a rabbit.

Yeah the book John Steed and I were on about is Love is Hell (which is what the scan is from). I found my copy of Love is Hell in a charity shop in Cork. What I meant was I wish he still made books like that with other characters besides ones from The Simpsons and Futurama. When was the last time he did a Binky one? Must've been yonks.

Whats the official name to describe the involuntary spitting out of your drink when someone says a shocking or comical comment?



"A dreadful, dreadful waste" is what it is and called in my book.

Have you seen the other ones? I think I have the Big Book of Hell.

I think you're right.

I'll have to have a proper look for them. When I get some cash in. I've been very naughty these last two weeks. Been on a spending splurge buying loads of manga, dvds and books. :-//

Since I'm late on the spitting jargon, here's my contrib:

schmootz

I dated a guy once who would make me laugh just as I was taking a sip, just so he could say "You schmootzed!"
