Shaky Kane. Chaka Khan.  Probably unintentional but it just crossed my mind today (and i spent the next hour with an earworm consisting of 'Shaky Kane' sung repeatedly in disco stylee).

Seems a bit of a stretch, but I'm too Scotch to get some English puns.

You know about GBH (dead) though?

I kind o' always assumed Shaky Kane was indeed a pun on Chaka Khan, while simultaneously being a (probably self-deprecating) reference to Bob Kane, with added possibility of intention to conjure up a mental image of a stick-brandishing codger.

...and maybe Shakin' Stevens.

If this was a reply to me sorry for the delay. I was hoping Frank would swoop in with an appropriate scan.

GBH (Dead) was an exiled Sha'Ka'Kan warrior.

I actually got that one, for once.  Just thinking about GBH (Dead) yesterday. What a great character.  Hard as nails, crazy-looking, with the voice of an old English aristocrat.

I was going to observe that GBH (Dead) must be one of the most unique comics character designs, but then I realised that could apply to the entire crew of the Speedo Ghost.

T.B. Grover and the Maestro, a neutron star collision of pure creation.

I've just remembered that I'm friends with Shaky on Facebook, or I was last time I checked. I'll ask him about the chaka khan thing.

Anyone would think you'd been listening to the latest Space Spinner 2000!
