The Sinister Mr Snilloc

Some school reading book which my kids had featured a 'bad guy' called "Mr Collins". This Mr Collins, made quite an impression on the kids, because they designed a face for him, which started appearing in places such as the obligatory "Keep Out!" notices on their bedroom doors. The character took on a more sinister aspect when they re-named him, Mr Snilloc, as the word in reverse sounds infinitely more menacing. Mr Snilloc now appears routinely on the steamed-up glass by the shower, or icy car-windows, and birthday cards invariably are signed by both the sender and Mr Snilloc! The picture above is Snilloc's recent appearance on Tentsmuir beach.
