The World of Norm #8: May Contain Buts

The picture is a clue: we’re sure they left a ‘t’ out of the title. But don’t worry: no laughs were omitted. Ever had the kind of day where you go to the toilet just for something to do? Norm is having one. Things can only get better, right? Don’t be daft – of course they won’t. I mean, this is Norm we’re talking about. Ancient aftershave. Snakes’ bottoms. Being bitten in the you-know-what. (Ouch.) Forget ifs and buts. Norm’s life is all whiffs and butts. Is it fair? No. Does it stink? Yes.
