Deep Six for the abu­sive Derek, and Dr Inky bows out

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

DEREK the An­gry Du­gong has left the Gazette af­ter de­cid­ing peo­ple are ‘‘too an­noy­ing and stupid’’ and has al­legedly left town with Miss Dol­phin for a fresh start in the South­ern Great Bar­rier Reef.

Mr Derek told the Gazette he was only ever writ­ing what the stars told him af­ter smok­ing some ‘‘her­bal tea’’, but he could not stand to be around hu­mans any longer.

‘‘I tried to show peo­ple they are ugly stupid crea­tures but they kept hurl­ing abuse so I’m off,’’ he said.

‘‘To all my fol­low­ers thank you for be­ing true to your­self, and for ev­ery­one else: Go get. . . ’’ Thank you Derek. Also this week it’s good­bye to Derek’s part­ner in crime, Dr Inky, drawn by Mike Drinkwa­ter for the past two years.

Dr Inky kept us en­ter­tained with his creative comic strips de­pict­ing life in the Dou­glas re­gion.
