1. forbiddenplanet: Ten great cartoonists - (above) Heath Robinson with a wonderful mix of his bizarre inventions and gimmicks combined with humour and wartime propoganda here.

    William Heath Robinson (signed as W. Heath Robinson) (1872–1944) was an English cartoonist and illustrator, best known for drawings of eccentric machines.

    In the UK, the term “Heath Robinson” has entered the language as a description of any unnecessarily complex and implausible contraption, similar to “Rube Goldberg" in the U.S.
