I'm not a fan of Halloween (it's too scary!) but it seems to be an ever growing trend in the UK, so here's my quick attempt to be 'trendy':

... I do wonder... if bugs did have Halloween parties, which costume (i.e. tester) would be the most popular? Or would it be a Test Driven Develop'er? My bet is on the evil tester.

The Inevitable Breakup

My wife thinks I love bugs... I don't know where she gets these ideas from...

Thanks for all who have already completed the Cartoon Tester merchandise questionnaire. If you haven't completed it yet, I would really appreciate if you could spend a minute or two answering just 3 questions. Thanks!

3 steps

Steve Irwin was one of my heroes when I was a kid… OK, I was 22. Looking back at his adventures, I’m convinced he would’ve made an awesome tester. I remember watching one of his programs, he was driving a 4x4 in the outback at say 60 miles per hour and suddenly he spotted a tiny snake 40 yards off the road (by crikey)! I wonder if I could spot a bug under comparable conditions?!!!

Here’s a simple diagram on how you can spot and raise bugs in three simple steps (don’t be fooled, it really isn’t that easy!!).
I think this image would make for a good t-shirt (IMHO), with that in mind I’m considering in producing a book with the cartoons and some t-shirts & mugs. But before I invest, I feel I should listen to some advice from Dragon’s Den and do a bit of market research. I would really appreciate if you could complete 3 multiple choice questions in my questionnaire… (it’s only 3 questions – it will take you a minute or less).
Thank you :)
