It is now 18.51 on the 15th October 2013 AD. So what better time to bore you all rigid with a short introduction.

My name’s Clive, although I was once dubbed Olive by a girl in the chemist as she announced that my prescription was ready. That walk of shame as I shouldered my way through a gaggle of unmarried mothers will live with me until my dying day.

I repair cars and write satire, although not necessarily in that order.

I have lived in London all my life so if you’re from up north or Cornwall could you speak slowly or hold up flash cards.

  1. So you decided to join the small clan of Uncle Spike followers Clive (btw, Olive – that’s a blog post all of it’s own!)…. That makes me a happy blogger now – I really appreciate you making that special mouse click.

    Hope you like my upcoming posts and if you get bored one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too.

    If you have any likes, dislikes or suggestions about my blog, just let me know, either through ‘comments’ or via email. Always welcome reader input 🙂

    Have a great old day…



    • Thank you my friend for the friendly acknowledgement. Much appreciated.
      I noticed that you’d given my rather “left of field” skit the old thumbs up so I had a quick gander (that’s cockney speak for look) at your blog and decided almost immediately to adopt a kind of benign stalker stance by following you.
      If at any time you wish this state of affairs to cease, just beat me about the head with a piece of wood or tell my wife I’ve been drinking beer in the shed again. Either will be extremely effective.
      Thanks again for your kindness.

      All the best

      Clive (Olive)


  2. Like your new blog link. And the ‘hulk’ write was awesome by the way. loved it!
    P.S Is there any place to comment now on your writes? Can’t find it.

    Cheers eF, that’s very kind of you and much appreciated. New link you say? Blimey I didn’t even know I had one! I must pay more attention haha.
    Unless of course you’re referring to the Soz website link I stuck on my profile page t’other day? http://sozsatire.wix.com/soz-satire
    If thou art, then there’s no feedback facility available on there I’m afraid. We used to have a Facebook “comments” link type thingy but we took it down to save bandwidth and to prevent our mates from hurling spiteful abuse 🙂
    The copy that you get on this blog however, should be fully “commentable”, you just have to scroll down a bit.
    Incidentally, I was going to ask you if you’ve ever had any of your poems published, perhaps under a nom de plume? If not, why not? They are seriously good you know?
    Anyway, thank you for your kindness, your support and your interest. Have a great weekend. For myself, I’ll probably go down the pub at some point. 🙂




    • Hi Soz! I think the comment section must be playing up then, I can’t access it from my side. It must be a fault of WordPress because the Reader’s gone a bit nuts too. Will keep trying though, and until then will comment here, if that’s okay?

      As for publishing, well I’ve had a few published in mags and journals and stuff – under my real name.Which I may or may not disclose at a later date. haha. Ezekiel is my nom de plume, which I go by at the moment.Thanks for inquiring friend and for such a sweet comment.

      Enjoy the beer!


  4. eF Of course you may comment here if and when the spirit moves you my friend.
    Forgive my idle curiosity and do tell me to mind my own damn business if you dont wish to answer this one, but I detect certain “Americanisms” in your speech. Are you a dweller in The Land Of The Free perchance?


  5. Hahaha. No, I’m British. From Windsor originally. Reside in the south coast now –
    love the sea.


  6. Just realized something. The youngster in your avatar pic is FAR too young to be smoking that pipe! What in Allah’s name is wrong with you? Go home right now, take the pipe away from the boy, and pray to Odin he hasn’t already developed mouth cancer or moved on to a worse addiction like heroin. My God, man! What were you thinking?!


    • That’s actually a family album pic of my middle son Steve. His mother and I found that a nice, calming pipe of St Bruno used to take his mind off his nappy rash.
      Even to this day he’s still quite partial to a good rough shag.


  7. Well, now why didn’t ya just say that in the first place! Let the boy smoke all he wants.


  8. It’s a pleasure to meet you, Clive. I’m sure I’ll find your satire funnier than my dry humour.
