The 200% World Cup – Artist’s Impression number 3

As Arthur Bloch writes in Murphy’s Law,” to err is human, but to really foul up requires a computer”. If last night’s match between France and Honduras taught us anything, it’s that BBC commentator Jonathan Pearce may yet occupy a space beyond even that. In the heart of Brazilian cowboy country last night in Porto Alegre, he had what is probably best described as a bit of a mare. Oh well, better luck next time, Jonathan.

Think of it as one of those summer editions of comics you used to get when you were a child. You can follow Twohundredpercent on Twitter here. Dotmund also has a Twitter, which is...

The 200% World Cup: Artist’s Impression number 1

Every morning during the World Cup we are going to send an expeditionary force down to the fetid lair of our semi-trained hominid and resident artist Dotmund to prod him with a stick and see if he’s got any drawings of the previous night’s action lying around. This morning’s dawn raid yielded fruit, as he mourns those players on the fringes of the Brazilian squad who just missed out on the final 23. You can follow Twohundredpercent on Twitter here.
