Welcome to The Chronicles of Clithero
The musings of our hapless hero Johnny Clithero in something approximating rhyming couplets and hastily drawn cartoons.
Described as “an ordinary man for ordinary times” Johnny shares his everyday carryings on with the world at large or (if the stats so far are anything to go by) practically no-one. These range from the mundane such as a trip to the shops on the bus and listening to the radio to interactions with super-models and billionaires. There are smatterings of domestic strife, run-ins with the law and opinions on a range of subjects including religion, charity and celebrity. In fact anything that comes into his head at any given time.
There should be something for everybody or maybe it turns out to be something for nobody. Who knows?
A word of warning for the discerning or sensitive: There may be a few naughty words scattered about and terms that some people might find a bit much. This is not gratuitous or unnecessary but sometimes it has to go in for effect and to make a point.
