Do church services everywhere start late? We have a 7pm service at our church and occasionally I stand at the front and welcome people. "Welcome," I want to say, "welcome to St James for our ten past seven service." And then people still continue to arrive until about eight o' clock!

'Arry 'ad the wrong idea about the 'Ealing service.

 

The idea for this cartoon came from a healing service one Sunday evening, and the destination board on a bus I saw the next morning. I expect they thought of this joke in Ealing churches a long time ago.

   
 

Cartoon service
The cartoon service was a great success.

 

These are some of my favourite cartoon characters, so to give their creators the credit they deserve, thanks to: David Law and the Beano for Dennis the Menace and Gnasher; Matt Groening for the Simpsons; Charles Schultz for Charlie Brown and Snoopy; Carl Giles for Grandma Giles; Peattie and Taylor for Gary Bloke; Gary Larson for the Far Side caveman and cow; Carlos Ezquerra and 2000 AD for Judge Dredd; Hergé for Tintin and Captain Haddock; Hanna Barbera for Dick Dastardly and Muttley; Oliver Postgate for Noggin the Nog; John Ryan for Captain Pugwash; Bob Godfrey and Grange Calveley for the birds from Roobarb; Albert Uderzo and René Goscinny for Obelix and Asterix; and Walt Disney for Mickey Mouse. And you can just about see Rodney Rower's vest and shorts behind Asterix.
