The Lesser Spotted Devonian Wellie-Wearing Blob Monster

Blob Monster Doodle by Hannah Sterry
A highly accurate self-portrait! 😛

This happened after I came across Jess Smiley’s blog and saw that he was looking for monster doodles to include in Rumpus on the Run: A Monster Look-N-Find BookIt’s well worth having a look at his illustrations, because you won’t be able to help but smile!

NAQs (Never Asked Questions): “Why does your monster have wellies?”
I’m not sure how many monsters wear wellies, but I basically live in farm country and had to climb a hedge to avoid sinking in a muddy lane the other day. Proper Devonian monsters would need to be able camouflage themselves against tractors, hedges, cliffs and mud and would probably only be able to live on Devon cream teas*!

*For some reason, the order of jam and clotted cream in a cream tea causes a lot of arguments between Cornish and Devonian people and nobody knows why.

If you’re interested in silly Devonisms, you might have a giggle at Things Devonians Don’t Say!

Please recommend any great comic/music blogs in the comments – I’d love to follow a few more!

Anyway, I’m off to have a nice dinner with my grandparents, so I’d better  go!

Blog to you soon! 😀

  1. I’m an Aussie but we love our Devonshire Teas as well [scones, jam, cream and a pot of tea]. I’m not quite sure what clotted cream is though. We have light, ordinary, pure, double, biodynamic, whipping, cooking and god knows what else, but no clotted. 😦

    1. I’m not sure how to describe clotted cream – it’s very, very thick and is probably the unheathiest, fattiest cream there is! It’s locally produced and doesn’t keep well, so we can’t really export it (in Australia the heat would probably make it melt far too fast too).

      There’s loads of information about how it’s made on wikipedia (I hadn’t actually thought about how it was made before reading this):

      1. OMG – 64% fat? I’m almost glad it can’t be exported! -grin- Maybe they should rename it cardiac on a scone. However if I ever get to England again I /will/ try it for myself – for scientific purposes only, of course. 😉
