Spike Milligan was undoubtedly a troubled, conflicted soul and it’s clear that some of his humour hasn’t worn well. But the deceptively simple and silly jokes and pictures he filled up books are a childhood joy that I’ve never lost. I can’t believe I’d have understood the Judith Hart poem above but would have laughed (and still do) at the ridiculous birds like the one below.

That’s a lovely blog that you’ve written. Made me smile on a gloomy Monday morning.
