Editor’s welcome

meekiemonthly Contact details: Editor: Royston Butterscotch

For me, August reminds me of being a child, growing up in Barry Island, South Wales and in particular, the Barry Carnival. Years ago, in its halcyon days, the Barry Carnival boasted over 100 ‘floats’- articulated lorries dressed from top to bottom with bunting, and full of people in fancy dress around a particular theme. These days, it’s just a Variety Sunshine coach with a few kids waving Union Jacks out of the back window. Shame. So in time honoured tradition this month, my family are going to recreate a parade for ourselves in our large country mansion. I’ve bought myself a strapping Tarzan outfit and my surgically-enhanced wife Brenda has bought herself some tassles to put on the end of her enormous juggernauts. Meanwhile, my darling 16 year old daughter has offered to give a hand to help relieve the drivers and young Timmy has set up a Coke stall for the local fete. Isn’t it great to see the kids getting involved? Editor Have a great August.

The “Oo– get me, I’m such a Diva” Competition As you know Meekie Monthly likes to ask celebrities daft questions and in most cases, they respond in good humour. Occasionally though, we get replies that really make our day. See if you can guess which mega star’s PA sent us this little gem: ***** would not be able to participate in an interview unless; you could offer a fee for his time, offer him an excusive interview asking more than 1 question (therefore giving ***** an opportunity to talk about different things he is up to), publish the address of his new website currently in development and provide him with proof of print. He certainly wouldn’t wish to answer just the one question you have posed I’m afraid. I’ve attached a biog of ***** for your interest; Thanks Regards, Alan

Answer revealed next month!

This is a drawing of a meekie by a wellrenowned artist Sigh! Do we really have to go through this every month? For those of you who do not yet know, a meekie is a person with a very large head, usually through no fault of their own. There is nothing wrong with these people. Meekie Monthly aims to celebrate these amazing people and has been doing so since 1988.

It’s Pollard vs. Cooper in Classroom Conflict By Staff Reporter Gordon Stribling Vicky Pollard, the rude, obnoxious schoolgirl created by recentlymarried gay comedian Matt Lucas and his comedy partner, the 'definitely not gay so stop asking' David Walliams, attacked Catherine Tate's almost identical creation Lauren Cooper yesterday during a Geography lesson. Lyndzi Shuttleworth, a teaching assistant who witnessed the incident described how a discussion about earthquakes sparked it off. "Lauren was mouthing off about some unrelated rubbish as she often does and you could see Vicky getting more and more agitated. She just wanted to learn about tectonic plates. Those two have had issues with each other since Lauren started hogging the limelight." Lauren responded to the teacher's request for quiet by shouting, quite loudly, "Am I bovvered?", which was enough to send Vicky over the edge. "She just flipped and leapt over the table over towards Lauren. The teacher tried to retain order but before he could the encounter had descended into a 2-way bout of aggressive catchphrase-tennis". Both participants were stuck in a loop of nonsensical teenage ramblings. "I don't think Nigel [the teacher] could do anything. He tried to break it up but he probably hadn't been taught how to deal with this kind of situation before." Walter Sensibly, a well-behaved classmate of the two girls tried reasoning with them but was quickly shouted down. "I tried telling them that they were both ‘hilarious’ fictional characters, but they didn't want to know." MEEKIEMONTHLY Page 4 MEEKIE

Dear Auntie May


. . . y a M e i t n u A

I'm worried that I have what looks like a fanny under my armpits. I've included a photo to show you what I mean. When I go down the club, I'm worried that I'll be giving away too strong a signal to the opposite sex. How do I tackle the problem of my armpit fanny? Tina

Dear Auntie May I recently caught my husband in bed with our milkman. What annoys me most is that after ordering three pints of red tops, I now find that he's put his price up by a penny a pint. How can I appeal against this extortionate price rise? Debbie Glos

Dear Debbie, Oh dear. What a messy situation - but one that I feel sure you can turn to your advantage with a bit of planning. The next time your husband and 'Ernie' have one of their assignations, simply sneak out to his abandoned float and help yourself to all the milk, eggs, orange juice etc. you want. If you feel really brave and are certain that they will be 'at it' for some time, try calling on his customers and collecting the milk bill. Hopefully you'll soon be able to make enough profit to set up a small 'beaver retreat' in Dunfermline, which I know has always been one of your ambitions. Love & dairy products, Auntie May

Dear Tina, I've studied your picture intently with my tapestry magnifier. It's rather good, you can get one Tina’s armpit yesterday quite cheaply on ebay. I would invest if one if I were you, particularly if you get eyestrain after prolonged cross-stitching. I'm not sure why you think you have a problem really. The opposite sex are generally useless at picking up signals so the more obvious you are, the better, in my book. However, if you feel they may be repulsed by this particular area of your anatomy, try sticking a 'night-time' sanitary towel under each arm. They now come with a ready made sticky patch on the back perfect for fannyflange purposes. See you at the club, when I've finished my sampler. Love & haberdashery Auntie May

Here’s your chance to win Hollywood actor David Hasselhoff. He comes complete with arms, legs and a head and will do just about anything you ask him to do. Just imagine– he can run you a bath, iron your underwear or even just chat to you while you clip your toenails. Bliss! All you need to do to win your life-size Hasselhoff is answer this question:

Back Issues We’ve got lots of back issues of Meekie Monthly left in our cupboard. In fact, we’ve been doing Meekie Monthly since 1988, but we only launched the electronic version back in March 2007. We think you’ll find that we’re getting bigger and better every month. So if you’ve missed out on the earlier issues, fear not– you can order them, free of charge, from us. We think that in this day and age, you deserve something for free.

What is David Hasselhoff’s first name? Email your entries, with “That David Competition” in the subject box to STOP PRESS: DUE TO DAVID’S FILM COMMITMENTS, DAVID IS NOW UNAVAILABLE AS A PRIZE. HOWEVER, WE CAN OFFER THE SUBSTITUTE PRIZE OF A LETTUCE TO OUR READERS.

All you need to do is email us at, requesting which issue you want. We’ve got them all from March onwards. Think– they might be worth something in a few years’ time. Probably not though.

Every month, Meekie Monthly celebrates beautiful ginger people by giving them an award. Aren’t we nice?

Ginger Person of the Month Award Name: Liz Hometown: Cardiff Why I love being ginger: I've always liked the colour and it certainly attracts compliments! I quite like being automatically different, too.

MY LEONARD This month’s cover band are Barry rockers My Leonard. Back in the mid 1990’s, Barry town rocked to the big guitar sound of the Happy Kings. For a while, the ’Kings ruled the town, putting in some legendary performances in Camden and Cardiff. After some rock and roll dust-ups, the Happy Kings went their separate ways. And that was that. Fortunately though, the majority of the band have decided to dust down their guitar cases, plug in and make some more noise. Headed up by Jim on guitar and vocals, My Leonard have added new band members, including Zelda on vocals, and Alan on guitar. Banging on the bongos is Jon and on bass, Dylan, who was writing music at the tender age of 13. My Leonard are now in the studio laying down some new tracks for the autumn, but until then, Meekie Monthly is proud to give its readers one of their classic numbers– the Last Straw.

Catch up with the band at:

Be careful not to catch bystanders with your big daps as you fly around. They could sue you and you could end up on the front of the local newspaper crying like a baby


Rugby World Cup Preview Rugby is a complicated game. In a recent study, over 90% of professional players said that they did not understand most of the rules. Worringly, an alarming 96% of referees said the same. This month, Meekie Monthly introduces the ‘backs’, and what they should be doing in theory Scrum Half (no 9) The scrum half is the link between the pack and the backs. As such, he is the player most likely to get late tackled. He has to put the ball into the scrum in such a way that the first person to touch the ball is the second row in his team. He then takes it out of the scrum where he expects it to (unlikely)

The FlyFly-Half (no 10) The fly-half is generally the person who gets abuse from the crowd for kicking the ball around too much. They also like to try and bluff their way past defenders. However this usually results in a horrific tackle and shouts of “Why didn’t you kick it?”

Centres (no 12 & 13) There are two centre positions– inside and outside centre. The inside centre’s job is to shout to the No 10, “If you’d have passed that then, I’d have been in” and the outside centre’s job is to shout the same thing to the inside centre. Inside centres like to play ‘crash ball’ where he runs heads first into an opponent. This can go one of two ways– a spectacular breakthrough or a visit to the local hospital.

Hi. My name’s Kevin and I’m indestructible

Wings (no 11 & 14) These speedsters are rarely used in a game and often get bored and come infield, leaving the forwards to cover their position. Can cover role of spectator or linesman

Full back (no 15) Full-backs often look a lonely sight. It is their responsibility to be the last person to miss the tackle before the opposing side score. Often put under a ‘high ball’, the full back is often gets ‘swivel eye syndrome’ where they keep one eye on the ball and the other on the opposing team closing in on them. Like to shout ‘Mark’ a lot

Hi. My name’s Matt the Handbag and I enjoy being carried around the pitch

Boys’ Problems

I Snapped My Banjo String

Yes, even boys sometimes have problems that they can’t seem to fix all by themselves. So in a new series, we answer the problems that you were too embarrassed to talk to your mum about.

I Wish My Breasts Were Smaller When I was a little boy I always dreamt of having a pair of wangers to play with. Now, I’m 42 and wish I’d made another wish. I have size 36D man boobs and I can’t get rid of them. What do I do? Terry, Swansea Come on John – this is your fourth letter this month – we all know you’re carrying a considerably more voluptuous set of topbollocks than 36D. Now Tony’s reign has ended, and your official life of leisure has begun, I suggest you join the ranks of your similarly bitch-tit endowed peers, and do as they do – embrace your saggy tits, buy a pair of grotesque national flag beach shorts, and shamelessly board the next flight to Benidorm. Olé!

Please help. Last night I went to make love to my woman but she was a bit dry and I pushed a bit too hard and Twang! – my banjo string snapped. It was a clear E minor and such was the shock, that I swear I saw George Formby at the window. I’m now in fear of trying again. What do I do?

Fruity Tutti


I have a phallus shaped like a pear, and I’m finding it very embarrassing when I pull and girls get to grips with my fruit-shaped friend. How can I sculpt it into another fruit shape – a banana maybe? Colin, Dundee Firstly, fruit-cock, you should be thankful that girls get to grip with it at all; many of our readers may never get that far – I went to school with many such unfortunates. As for your gland, braying it with a tool such as a domestic meat tenderiser will probably yield a penal fruit smoothie, rather than leave you the proud owner of something resembling an 8-10”slightly bent tree-fruit. Faced with your dilemma, I would go with the ‘Trinny & Suzanna’ approach – i.e. deny to yourself your obvious gross physical failings, and try to make the best of a cruel nature’s job. It’s all about marketing, my boy – go find a naïve, preferably drunk young maiden (perhaps try your local JD Wetherspoon’s freehouse between 12pm and 11pm, any night of the week), and convince her gobbling-up your fruity member counts as one of her recommended “five a day”. Bon apetit!

Reg, Teeside Reading these tales of woe as I do so regular, I have to be able to read between the lines and make some considered assumptions: In this case I must – for the good spirit of humanity – assume your pair-some have genuine biological issues, and that you’ve not in fact been trying to play ‘hide the sausage’ with a waxwork in the music section down at Madame Tussauds. Hoping (and praying), that my assumptions are correct, my advice therefore is simple: Issue her indoors with a firm but fair ultimatum – lube-up or get out. Otherwise sex will forever more sound like a few precious notes from some appalling hillbilly movie, with potentially eyewatering health consequences. You may also consider name-dropping valuable family assets during future ventures – nothing gets the ladies more moist than the prospect of a life spent filling walk-in wardrobes with expensive shoes. If you have an embarrassing problem that you’d like the world to know about, email

Big Brother– are all the contestants nutters? Every month we ask a cross section of the population to cast their thoughts on a topical topic. This month we’ve spoken to several high profile people plus a tabloid columnist. Here’s what they had to say about this year’s Big Brother

The former housemate Lisa Jeynes I think since my series when I was put in to stir it up that producers realised they needed to put stronger characters in. (Hey I started that off!). Unfortunately, as the years have gone on the housemates are {well most of them} are quite unstable to start off with and trying to shock the viewer, also fame hungry. Most of them amount to nothing when they come out.

The rock star

The former housemate Imogen Thomas

Stuart Cable I don’t watch that shit mate….!!!!

The beauty queen Eleanor Glynn (Miss England 2006/07)

Apart from one or two of them...they act like 5 year olds carrying teddy bears.!! They need to wake up to the fact its a reality show and stop talking about deals they want when they get out.. You don't necessarily walk into a TV career from Big Brother

The tabloid columnist

One answer– yes

Clinton Handshandi

Are they nuts? Hmmm… Whilst I may not be the most knowledgeable on the subject – due to the fact I generally pass-out after watching the twincredibles for more than a couple of minutes – I would indeed support this theory: Where else would you find a six-foot man scared of animals, and a thirty-seven year old woman who collects carrier bags, I ask you?

Top Tips on How to be a Grown Up Woman By Josie Henley Girls these days don’t get to sit down with their grannies and taught what they should do. There are books on etiquette but it’s all outdated like lifting up your little finger when drinking from a cup. Who drinks from a cup and saucer any more? From my careful observation of more feminine females than me, I have developed the ten most important things to remember. Do this and you can’t go wrong. 1. Learn to walk in knife-sharp high heels without falling over. 2. Learn to get up gracefully when you fall over. 3. Use heels to kill any man who laughs at you for falling over. 4. Insist on drinking with a straw, even when drinking pints of beer. Something to do with your lipstick, I think. 5. Develop the art of putting on makeup in the car without looking like a clown. 6. Wait till the car stops before putting in earrings, unless you need new piercings. 7. Cross your legs when wearing a skirt. Unless you’re Sharon Stone. 8. Always wear good pants. Unless you’re Sharon Stone, see above. 9. Find your perfect perfume- it should attract men like flies and suffocate other women, thus ridding you of competition. 10. Pretend to be a lesbian. If you really are a lesbian, pretend you’re not. Next month: How to go shopping without any money Indulge in your passion for fashion!

Join Meekie in looking into how you can save the world with the help of some popstars. This month: the live earth message with Joss Stone. Alright my lovelies? Me again– Joss ‘Supersoul’ Stone ‘ere with tips ‘n’ tricks I’ve made up to save the world, just like I saved soul music with my supersoul voice. Well here they are my lovelies: woof

1 Don’t drive to the shops to buy my new CD 2 Don’t buy my new CD 3 or any of the old ones (they’re just as shit) 4 Don’t turn your computer on to buy my songs off itunes 5 Turn the TV off when I come on 6 and the radio It may not save the planet but it’ll be the end of my career and that’s something at least. On a more serious note what is a really good idea though is to have loads of concerts around the world spunking carbon from the massive amounts of generators they’ll need to power the shows. Genius.

Editorial comment: some readers may be previously aware that the author James Harris isn’t a massive fan Ms Stone. We respect the fact that James has an opinion on the young singer.

Calculate your carbon footprint We’re all becoming aware of our carbon footprint, and we should all be working to reduce ours. Meekie Monthly tells you how to work yours out– and what to do to help the environment. 1.

Add together the amount of units you use for gas and electricity 2. Now add together the number of people in your household 3. Add the two figures together 4. Multiply it by ten 5. Add on a number of your choice between 1-1000 6. Multiply this by 49 7. Add on 754 8. Divide it by 6 9. Think of your favourite colour 10. Add on the amount of letters in the word of your favourite colour 11. Voila! Your carbon footprint! HOW TO REDUCE YOUR FOOTPRINT Meekie Monthly advises that you chop both your feet off

What a great honour it is for me to be talking to you – via the hallowed pages of the Meekie Monthly!!! I’m truly excited!!! You should be able to tell this purely from my persistent overuse of the exclamation mark!!! I s’pose I should introduce meself too…seeing as most of you won’t know who I am…My name’s Larry Sloane and I plan to bring you a new postcard from Welwyn Garden City every month…just so you know what’s happening in my life…I like to watch pornography, ‘The Fall Guy’ and golf! I like to make ART works too!!! I guess I’d describe myself as an artist/philanthropist/entrepreneur…I currently live at my mum’s due to conditions set out in my parole. You’ll have to excuse me if the tone changes a bit through this piece as I am doing it in between times my mother is asleep, goes to the toilet or nips up the shops – at the moment she is at Tesco’s head office trying out different varieties of finger-food, so I should have a couple of hours unmolested…Not that she ‘molests’ me in the biblical sense – she just gets on my fokking wick! With all her gabbing on about the fokking neighbour’s dog and the cat that keeps fokking laying turds on the lawn…on and on… just shut up! …Well, in case you dropped geography when you were 14 and just discovering the inherent joys-strokehorrors of the opposite sex, Welwyn Garden City is on the death line from Kings Cross – about 20 miles as the crow flies - and has the honour of being the world’s second Garden City!!! Oh yes!!! All you readers residing in concrete-based new-town shit-holes have old Ebenezer Howard to thank for that!!! Oh Yes!!! Anyway, I saw yesterday that a young lad has narrowly escaped death after mucking about with power lines in a disused factory??? On the front page of the Welwyn Times it was…great big picture of the little rat boy ‘n’ all!!! The bastards!!! That’s probably where fokking Posh Spice started – front page expose of the local paper fuelling her incessant need to be ‘seen’…to be ‘famous’ for something… anything…even being the most famous skeletal, talentless bint to come from Cuffley!!! I don’t begrudge her any of it though…I’m happy!!! I am…I don’t need to be shafted by David Beckham to know that…As long as Tim Henman remains in the draw at Wimbledon every year my humour remains undiminished!!!! ...come on then…? Let’s hear you…? Come on Tiger Tim!!!!! …that’s right…you know you want to… Lx MEEKIEMONTHLY Page 25
