The latest news on the geckos is that they are gathering behind the lamp on the front porch. They appear to be taking advantage of the moth traffic in the region, but intelligence informs us that they are mustering their forces for a more sinister purpose. A description of the ringleader has been issued by the police: "light is shining through him so that you can see his beating heart and pulsating squidgy insides." We are certain that they are up to no good and will keep you posted on this fast breaking story. News sources are saying it could be an international crisis on a scale comparable to the Martian invasion of 1938.

(Nathalie correctly noted that the label below is reminiscent of Gaiman. When I inaugurated the custom of labels here at Campbell blogspot, hayley campbell commented: "ah, brill. you should tag completely ridiculous things like neil does sometimes. his tags have become my favourite bit of his blog.". So I immediately decided, 'there's one idea I'll be plagiarising!.

You may be on to something Campbell. Over here in America we have a gecko that's trying to sell us car insurance, and a man who is trying to convince us that our car insurance is provided by aliens from the planet Mercury. Coincidence? I think not. I wonder what comics are like on Mercury. Probably very hot.

Gaimania all over ! (this seems to be an extremely contagious condition, by the way, you might want to watch out for that)
And geckos !
Doesn't your cat chase them ? Mines are doing a regular slaughter of Rome's lizards population so much so that there are been talks of genocide.

Not enough that you're a f*cking homosexual, now you're turning into a Gaiman.

BTW, since you've been in the home ownership game for a awhile, do you still harbour a preference for renting (as described in your "Snooter" book?

(can imagine you calling the landlord to "come dispose of this reptilian riffraff, my good man")

I can see no other recourse available to us... Let's sue each other!

I can see the headlines now:

"Artist found suckered to death. Geckos helping police with their enquires."

Geckos already took over the world, but don't worry, they won't harm us. They need us because with our blood we feed the mosquitoes they eat. :)

The last gecko posting stands at 24 comments and counting.

Geckos don't make my brain hurt.

Um, I replied to you about Burns in that other posts comments, but I wasn't sure if I had to let you know in this comment? I realise I'm adding to gecko post comments, maybe this will lead to interesting google weighting on your blog.
