Separated at birth

Which used to be a regular feature in a magazine called Sunday (1973-1999)

Now am I the only one who thinks this way about THESE two?





















This one used his head to good effect recently
This one is a trifle Victorian in his outlook

I can barely remember the 'Sunday'.

But I remember looking forward to it because of the Blondie comic strip (which is still published, by the way, but I don't like the strip anymore)

Found it pretty odd that they had changed the name to 'Graphiti', though.

Funny word. Even funnier when you spell it correctly.

Yesss, Sunday - died a natural death like the Illustrated Weekly under Khushwant Singh and the JS ..sob

haha! yes!
I remember that feature and that magazine.

Damn. I'm old.

Sunday! Wow. (I remember receiving our copy in the middle of the week.)

@Eve's Lungs: The Weekly died under the Sardarji? On the contrary. The magazine died after Singh left, when it tried to become "respectable" (the M.V. Kamath era, I believe.)

Hades, "Sunday" was a different mag. Started by MJ Akbar, iirc. "Graphiti" is the Sunday supplement with "The Telegraph".

E Lungs, I second KM.

Oz, you do?! I'm surprised at you!

KM, you should tell us more.

Anon, thanks, you're the first one to concentrate on the resemblances.

Matt Perry and Gilchrist, a fleeting resemblance. Stewart (not Stuart) and Laurie closer, but Hugh is leaner.

Patil and Gulzar saab, bang on!
