The series was so successful, he spent the next year releasing other projects he'd been working on. Now, for the first time, the stories he wrote while learning his craft are available.

    Jason is single and has been for all of his 32 years. It's depressing. But not as depressing as being told by his mother that he looks like Humpty Dumpty - after the accident. With a face that not even his own mother can love, it's hardly surprising that he'll try anything to get a woman to go out with him, even if it's only for a single date. With little interest in anything other than his quest for a woman and a nice bit of cod and chips, Jason needs to think outside the box if he's going to find someone who'll give him a chance.

    We've all seen the news over the last few years, watching in wonder and disbelief at the situations the people entrusted to run the country get themselves into and then proceed to lie their way out of. Just imagine--and this won't be hard--that they were so stupid they wrote reviews of the items that got them into or out of their latest bits of trouble and posted them online.

    It's been just over a year since we last visited Hogsbottom plugs, and there's been lots of change. Jeff no longer has an obsession with Westlife or The Jackson Five, Hogsbottom has brought in a lawyer with a height complex and a dodgy bowel to help him sell the company, so he can leave his wife and live the life of Riley with his mistress, who is also Jeff's mother. The question is: will Hogsbottom be able to get the sale though without Jeff finding out and ruining the future for everyone?
