Stern Plastic Owl

Behold! My latest collection, Stern Plastic Owl, is available from Go Faster Stripe.

“Delightful and insightful and quite simply rightful, Robert Wringham’s observations and commentaries on our strange old world make everything better.” — Ben Moor.

Here’s the blurb:

“Sir, you couldn’t count the cylinders I’m firing on…”

Meet Robert Wringham. He strides across the landscape of a slightly fantastical world. It’s the same world that you and I live in… only more so.

It’s a STERN world.

It’s a PLASTIC world.

You’d better believe it’s an OWL world.

It’s the world of the STERN PLASTIC I-KNOW-NOT-WHAT.

  • Is it possible to walk through a duckpond using a corncob pipe for air?
  • Just what was H.G. Wells like in bed?
  • And how high can you raise the eyebrow before it interferes with the flight paths of planes?

Deft Mr. Wringham skirts around these questions and more in his latest collection of what The Financial Times recently described as “some dope shit”*, some thirty classic pieces tenderly gouged from their original contexts and artfully mashed into book form.

*they said no such thing.


And here’s a nice interview about Stern Plastic Owl at the British Comedy Guide with comedian Gabriel Featherstone.


Go Faster Stripe again? Great to be back.

I’m happy to have deployed my “cylinders” line somewhere other than this old show poster. You can’t say I’m not resourceful.
