Hiya. Please can you appraise the pic I've put on Topless Harry to see if you think it's appropriate? Cheers. --Knmatt 12:57, 18 July 2007

It's hard to see how the picture could be anything other than graphic... but I'd venture this would be no "worse", objectively speaking, than a drawing of Reg Shoe looking for his arm after it's fallen off, or being assisted in stitching his head back on following an interaction with the D'reg... depending on the detail, an animated corpse showing the inevitable degredation of Time could be even more graphic a proposition, especially with Reg's periodic and personally shameful infestations of mice! (Shades of Kenny in "South Park" being eaten by rats, as happens in every episode...)

Nope, no problem with this - Terry Gilliam's animations in Monty Python used worse, especially in the "cannibalism" episodes (where a human head really DOES have its top sliced off as though it were a hard-boiled egg - it's even sitting in an egg-cup...)

Perhaps, though, some concepts are meant to be in words only so the mind of the reader fills in the details and makes the picture? Although this is a matter of personal taste and discretion...--AgProv 13:37, 18 July 2007 (CEST)

Thanks. I'll leave it for now, but won't take it amiss if someone else removes it. --Knmatt 13:46, 18 July 2007 (CEST)
