The Cartoon Site of the Millenium
is Ods Bodkins? You might well ask. A bodkin was originally a small, slender
dagger usually hidden amidst the layers of clothing worn during the Elizabethan
period. The word "bod" is speculated to be of Celtic origin; probably
from the archaic Welsh "bidog"...dagger. The "kin" in
bodkin is most likely the diminutive form. Ods bodkins was used as a mild
expletive and can be heard sprinkled liberaly throughout the works of Shakespear;
most notably by my favorite character Sir John Falstaff. Ods bodkins refers
to God's little dagger with which He pricked the unwary. These cartoons,
presented here, are my bodkins with which I hope to prick your unwary sense
of humour. Try not to bleed on the mouse. Let me know how I'm doing. Come
often and browse. The images will be updated weekly.
