THREE CHEERS FOR NOTHING

Saturday 16th is National Nothing Day, and we are celebrating the occasion with a new issue. Highlights in the issue include:  A brand-new Lucy story, in which our lovelorn lass goes on a date with a boffin who believes that the universe is 99.99999% nothing, therefore the bit that isn't nothing should also be considered statistically nothing.

Drearyiness As founder of the club, Steve got to share his favourite contributions from the Dreary Condiment category. Steve's speech in full:  Thank you Tom. Being rather new to this role I have noted down what judges on TV talent shows do so I just want to say you fully deserve to be in this competition, you nailed it and good job! Right, strange homebaking lady and I have carefully considered the entries. The best condiment pic goes to Tom’s condiment shoe racing. A fine and powerful work that is playful in intent yet subtle in executing. Execution. The best dreary pic goes to John’s curtain stain.
