For a while now, Friday has been the day when I post a Finger Puppet Show comic strip, but now I've given the Finger Puppet Show its own site. The reason for this, is that Weebly struggles to show strips at the original size at times, and sometimes makes them hard to read, whereas this new site is actually designed for webcomics and has no such problem. So, strips will now be posted exclusively there and every Friday will be a regular entry just like any other day. Having said that, I'll post links at the bottom of the Friday entries, just to be sure nobody misses the new strips. But, yes, no major change, but I thought I'd write this to avoid confusing anybody! Also, a link to the new Finger Puppet Show site will always be available from here: simply click 'Finger Puppet Show' under the blog's banner. Thanks for reading :)
I’m a bit disappointed with how this strip turned out. The last four panels are not supposed to be larger than the first eight (they are actually the same size) it's just something Weebly does when you post multiple images. It's a shame really, because it makes it hard to have a strip which is over eight panels long: either I try and post it all as one image and it comes out almost too small to read (like this) or I have to divide the strip and most two images and they are very obviously separate (like this) which is what happened here too. I had a choice between it all being tiny or the bottom part being massive. Oh well....

(This week on my blog I am posting an entry every day, and each entry will be written by somebody other than me. Friday is the day that a new Finger Puppet Show is posted and so the script for today's strip was written by my old friend Elliott Egan. It doesn't tie in with the current Ghost storyline, so consider it as taking place just before.)
Adam, we get it with the moo puns. Stop milking it.

Oh gosh, they got Girlock. So now this strange 'infection' will begin to spread across all of Finger Puppet Land...

This was photographed at Savernake Forest. I'm going to use this entry to explain the issue of Colin's language abilities which I'm sure may seem inconsistent at times. Sometimes he appears not to be able to talk at all and to be just a mindless cow (like here) and other times he seems to talk just fine (like here). Well, the truth is, Colin can speak Cow, but he can't speak English. So, times like this all everybody hears is a cow mooing over and over again with no words, I've just taken to liberty of translating it for you to make it more enjoyable. As such, there is no inconsistency! Every time Colin 'talks' he is either alone or talking to another cow, he cannot talk to humans (he'd be able to speak to Rainbow Man, though). There is an exception to this (here and here) and the answer to that is that on some unseen adventure, the pirates were granted the ability to talk to animals. So, there you have it, the issue is solved! Not that anybody cares, I'm sure, but I do like to have internal consistency in my work, so I made this explanation more for myself, than anybody else!

Since jokesters answered the question of "how do you know if there's an elephant in your fridge?" (footprints in the butter) long ago, I tried to answer another of life's big question "How do you know if there's a cow in your fridge?" the answer, of course, being that they get stuck in peanut butter pots.
This is the first appearance of David Tubb in a strip in about five months!

And with that, we have the first appearance of Tolin the Cow! Actually a cow shaped torch. Tolin, just like Cooklin, was a gift from my friend Naomi Brennan, this time a birthday present. I'm not sure if I'll use either of them again, but, when I get new cows, I just want to make strips about them! This also continues Colin's desire for all cows to say nothing but 'moo'.

I'm currently in the process of completely overhauling the archive system to make it more easy to use. Bear with me, it may look messy for a bit.
