The current edition of Time Out London includes the third installment of advertising agency Mother’s Four Feet From A Rat comic. Created in collaboration with graphic novel publishers Mam Tor, the comic offers a quirky insight into London life, with one story, illustrated by artist Roger Langridge, focusing on London’s ebullient mayor, Boris Johnson.

The story, titled Young Boris, sees our intrepid mayor cast as a heroic adventurer, fighting off the dangers of the commies, pesky picaninnies, and the evil Livingstone, natch.

The Atheist Bus

“There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.” It’s a refreshing, if unusual, statement for the side of a London bus and if the organisers of the Atheist Bus Campaign raise enough money (you can donate here), they hope to run their message on 30 buses in the capital for four weeks early next year.

Fair enough. But as to how enjoying life bears any relation to a bendy bus is a question that might even stump prof. Dawkins.
