“Oh no!” – shit jokes in Rainbow Comic

Don’t get me wrong, I love Rainbow Comic. That’s why I spend so much time reading it, even though I am not five.

One of my favourite things about Rainbow Comic is the way they end every issue with a rubbish joke on the back cover. Normally the jokes make no sense, and even when they do they’re a bit shit.

During these Rainbow marathons, I’ve noticed a strange phenomenon – the Rainbow house is infinitely big on the inside, with the ability to expand so it contains exactly as many rooms as the cast needs that day, but no more.

Here it is, inside and outside –

And here we see George describing the house as “little”. Not ‘big’ or ‘huge’ or ‘a bastard to clean on your own, I’ll have to get a man in’, but “little”. Admittedly, he mostly seems to be concerned with how shiny the floor is. Continue reading “The many rooms of the Rainbow house”
