    I don’t understand what role Raymond plays in this strip. Who or what does he represent?

    Someone did suggest that he’s a cursed pirate, which works for me. But I’m quite happy to accept him for who he is.

    He should get to keep the watch because the jerk was so condesending.

    I wondered about that – perhaps it’s their day off?

    We DO realize this patronsing git is Chip Dunham, the cartoonist, no? I recognize the outfit, not sure about the face.

    Some people have made the mistake of seeing Shunt’s work as a load of rubbish about railway timetables, but clever people like me, who talk loudly in restaurants, see this as a deliberate ambiguity, a plea for understanding in a mechanized world. The points are frozen, the beast is dead. What is the difference? What indeed is the point? The point is frozen, the beast is late out of Paddington. The point is taken. If La Fontaine’s elk would spurn Tom Jones the engine must be our head, the dining car our oesophagus, the guard’s van our left lung, the cattle truck our shins, the first-class compartment the piece of skin at the nape of the neck and the level crossing an electric elk called Simon. The clarity is devastating. But where is the ambiguity? It’s over there in a box. Shunt is saying the 8.15 from Gillingham when in reality he means the 8.13 from Gillingham. The train is the same only the time is altered. Ecce homo, ergo elk. La Fontaine knew his sister and knew her bloody well. The point is taken, the beast is moulting, the fluff gets up your nose. The illusion is complete; it is reality, the reality is illusion and the ambiguity is the only truth. But is the truth, as Hitchcock observes, in the box? No there isn’t room, the ambiguity has put on weight. The point is taken, the elk is dead, the beast stops at Swindon, Chabrol stops at nothing, I’m having treatment and La Fontaine can get knotted.

    Raymond is the most pirate like of the pirates on the Revenge. And now we know why Henry doesn’t encourage shaking his hand.


    Good Morning, Crew!
