something in VIZ that cracked me up....

just got this months VIZ and had a good laugh at this readers letter...



"whenever i drive past my local school a large roadside sign excitedly flashes up the number 30 surrounded by orange and white lights. It must need fixing or something, because im always going loads faster than that"

Re: something in VIZ that cracked me up....

yeah viz is still going strong. ive never stopped buying it.
the comic strip parts have lost their feel, but the written words and adverts are stil just as funny.
for example- Enlarge your Denis. Women say its not the size of your Denis, its what you do with it that counts, but its a lie. Try this new method to get a thicker, lengthier Denis. -

oh and i got a 30 thing near me too. its almost the instant where the road turns from a 60.... if you lived next to it then it must be like living next to a strip club with the flashing lights all night through the curtains

I haven't bought Viz for nearly 20 years, glad its still going.
I love the signs that tell your speed, its like having a personal target to beat every time..........

viz had a slope in quality a few years back, but its back now. They STILL to this day carry on the 'shed' adverts in every issue.

Re: something in VIZ that cracked me up....

ha ha what matt just said. They have those in an industrial estate near me. 15mph. The target is to get the highest number on it without it flashing two zeros for a 'no read'.


In outer essex once i saw one of those flashing 30 ones and as soon as it was in sight there was thick black tyre marks on the road leading off into trees...yellow "anyone know what happened?" police poster up beside it......christ, aint that hard to figure out hehe.
