Seagulls are hooligans! I'm surprised it's taken me this long to come up with a strip like this. It's so obvious. If ever you visit coastal towns you'll see seagulls attacking tourists for their chips.

I originally drew this with Quentin telling the story but something wasn't right. I think I have to be careful about how "human" Lugworms can be. Somehow a gull having a tummy tuck seems more believable than a worm whose body is simply too different to ours.

I've been thinking about using the frame gutters for a while. I had meant it to be where the ghost of Quentin's boring Uncle Keith is stuck. Maybe Quentin and Ollie would use a ouija board to summon him? Boring uncle Keith could talk for an eternity so this gutter is pergatory for him 'cos he can't get a word in edgeways. Thing is I couldn't get it right and this one just leapt into my head a couple of hours before I had to show King Features what I'd done this week. Amazing what a bit of blind panic will do.
