Bcbkye and Roberto on Finnish teletext

Greetings, Yack-readers. I'm currently taking an(other) extended break from Illogicopedia, but simply had to drop in for five minutes and tell you about this.

When I heard about the International Teletext Art Festival, I started to create some test pieces, you know, just to see if I could still physically do it. I grabbed a bunch of pics from my hard drive to convert to the teletext format, and naturally a bunch of them are Illogicopedia-related. Anyway, some of these experiments turned out quite well, so well, in fact, that I decided to actually submit them.

And that's the tale of how the Illogicopedia forum banana, Roberto and Bcbkye ended up on YLE Teksti-TV.

Here's the demented clown himself. Warning: not for the faint of heart!

This is Roberto, figuring out how to best destroy the Teletext servers.

And this is a semi-tribute to that one album cover
Well not really, but it looks pretty cool anyway.

All sources have been attributed (by which I mean I gave Huge Bob and Silent Penguin credit for some of the artwork). If you're interested, the index of my stuff is here, and is viewable alongside the other fantastic entries until 8 April.

The discerning mind

Today's shipment of belching hyenas will be a bit short, so please bear with us as we make up the difference in land dolphins. As always, remember to treat raw hyena meats with motor oil as a prophylaxis against implantation by space aliens and Belgians.

While visiting our facility, please bear witness to the many wonders and cackling horsies as they impede your vision of a better tomorrow. If you can read this, you are too close... to something dangerous, like fanged meats, perhaps. Beware the nonchalance and indignity, as it's catching. So is your mum.

Yours In Christ,
The Doldrums

Roberto plots against us!

Francis E. Dec can't get a proper treatment on Illogicopedia, just because Roberto is feeling down. I am so tired of this chemically-dependent culture of slack-jawed miscreants, hovering over us like wafting teargas, admiring our descent into driveling waifliness.

Now Roberto can be disingenuous at times, even unfocused in his affections. That's why we had to go to Mexico to purchase mercury-based medicines with which to treat the bandito. Dr.Jesus was obliging, friendly and efficient in his accommodation of our request, and even threw in 2 free resurrections for Sancho and I.

It's times like these that I am glad to be a land-stander.
