The Thieving Gypsy Bastards


Everyone, it seems, has fond memories of this momentous cartoon. Time and again someone posts a thread on a forum about the amount of thievery and destruction perpetrated by the occupants of their local encampment, and it isn't long before someone replies "Do you remember the Thieving Gypsy Bastards in Viz? It was ace it was really funny it was just like them they should have done more etc. etc. etc." and someone else takes the piss out of the idiotic political-correctness bollocks about them being made to apologise for it being "racist". Racist my arse, racism is attacking a group of people defined by skin colour or some such genetic characteristic. Taking the piss out of a group of people defined by their criminal behaviour is not racist, it's funny.

These forum threads always result in mass googling for a scan of the cartoon to post, followed by mass disappointment that there isn't one to be found anywhere on the internet. Always seems surprising that such a well-remembered classic has so successfully eluded distribution. Well, you know what they say, if you want a job done properly the thing is to do it yourself...

It's not as funny as I remember it being when it was originally published...
