That was indeed a bargain you missed! I expect there are very few collectors of such items in your part of the world, so perhaps you may soon come across that SH title at another fair.

Jacob is going to be cross with you. Britain had its opportunity to mess with his country and it is now China's turn.

He always seems to be depicted in the press with a shower above his head?

It is an AIDS-prevention measure.

Hi Frank......

His name is:......

Joe Btfsplk: The world's worst jinx, Joe Btfsplk had a perpetually dark rain cloud over his head. Instantaneous bad luck befell anyone unfortunate enough to be in his vicinity. Though well-meaning and friendly, his reputation inevitably precedes him — so Joe is a very lonely little man. He has an apparently unpronounceable name, but creator Al Capp "pronounced" Btfsplk by simply blowing a "raspberry," or Bronx cheer. Joe's personal storm cloud became one of the most iconic images in the strip.

Evidently not, since South Africa still has one of the highest HIV/AIDS infection rates in the world. There is a lot on the Internet under Zapiro/Zuma/showerhead for those interested in the origins of this adornment.
