    My British grandmother used to use the expression. My grandmother was born in 1897. I think the comic strip originated from the the word and not the other way round. ‘Perisher’ was used as a slang term for irritating children mostly. I ’m not sure if it was cockney slang or not. There are so many different accents and dialects in the UK.

    Cartoon physics. A friendship between a seagull and a lug worm is ridiculous anyway, the gull would normally eat the worm.

    Migraine covers several different types of headache. My eldest daughter and myself were both diagnosed by a neurosurgeon. He was the person who explained the causes and the foods to avoid.

    The headache is caused by artificial food colouring. Tartrazine is one of the chemicals responsible. They are vicious and have been known to trigger epilectic attacks in sensitive children.

    These are all very old re-runs. I think that Jim Unger died several years ago but left a huge supply of previously published comic strips.

    That depends on where you live. I know that there are certain areas where it is dangerous for a cat to be outside. However, I live in a quiet suburb in South Africa where it is completely safe for cats to be outside. We all have cats that are free to roam. Having said that, we all make sure that our cats are sterilised.
