Sue (Sooz) Simpson
I'm thirty nine, recently single again. I have two boys Cli' (pronounced clee) Real name Christopher and Mark. I'm a care in the community nurse and formerly (when I was married) an occupational Therapist working with the mentally ill on a secure unit. I love reading and writing and meeting people. I hate offal, seafood and intolerance. I keep dog, cat, polecats, rats and reptiles. And for seven years ran the second largest reptile sanctuary in Britain. Apart from having my lads, I think that's probably the most worthwhile thing I've ever done. Writing wise, I've been the main fiction writer for Legends magazine for three years.And have two books published 'Lizard's Leap' published by Quillusers, and 'Better the Devil You Know' soon to be released by Bestbooks.Um I drive a knackered old Astra, and ride a two litre trike. I live in the lake district of England, and am happy. :-)

Sue (Sooz) Simpson

Dear Aunt Nasty,

My dog is a three-year-old Doberman called ‘Rasta’. He has always been a good boy. Well, that is until three weeks ago when I got a new man in my life. I tried to stop Rasta sleeping on my bed. Every night for the last fortnight he has snuck upstairs and dumped in Cecil’s side of the bed. Please help me. Cecil is beginning to think that Rasta doesn’t like him.

Yours truly, Uncomfortable in a crappy bed.

My dear Uncomfortable,

You waste stamp, envelope, paper, ink and 0.999 of a calorie in expended energy writing me this? You know the answer.
Eat well. Eat rich. Eat hearty…and then go and crap in his bed.
On the other hand of course, maybe the dog is a better judge of character than you are!

By The Way is Cecil aware that he can legally change his name by deed poll?

Aunt Nasty


Dear Aunt Nasty,

My boyfriend expects a good meal on the table every night. But when I provide decent cuts of meat, he throws the food across the room and plays hell about the amount of money I’m spending. I just can’t win.
Yours truly, Hungry in Hampton.

 Dear Hungry,

I have just the recipe for your darling man.

You need to find a pet shop specialising in frozen food for the discerning reptile.
Purchase ten frozen rat pups. Ask for big plump ones that are about a week old. The little sweethearts have no inkling at this age of the fact that within a week some bloody great human is going to come along and chuck them in a freezer, so they see no reason to grow fur. Also pick up a few pieces of mouse poo if you can.

When you get home, lay the baby rats out in a neat little line somewhere warm and in direct sunlight if possible. After one hour, get pissed off with waiting and decide to nuke them in the microwave to aid the defrosting. While in the process of pressing the defrost button, have a little mind warp and press the ‘full power’ button instead. Whap it up to two minutes.

After about twenty seconds you will hear the first sickening wet ‘plop’ of an exploding rat pup. This will be followed fairly rapidly by nine more sickeningly wet plops as their bodies swell like over-inflated balloons with boiling fluid. When all ten bodies have burst from cranium to gusset, there is little point in continuing to zap them with radiation. Just think how proud your economy-conscious man will be when you tell him about the ninety seconds of electricity you spared him having to pay for.

For the next part, you might consider the distinct advantage of wearing surgical gloves. Carefully peel the mangled and steaming bodies from the four sides and several corners of the microwave. Lay them on a bed of succulent wild rice (you know, the kind with the little black kernels), pepper with tiny pieces of mouse poo, but don’t overdo it or he’ll notice.

Serve hot with a warm and loving smile.

Total cost of meal: under five dollars. I’m told by a spaced out junkie friend of mine that this dish tastes “just like chicken”, but then apparently so does everything from alligator meat, through sheep’s balls to slimy squid, so that doesn’t surprise me.

The name of this dish is Ratatenny Surprise, and can be found on page thirty-three of my cookbook (available in all good bookshops). The book is titled “Auntie Nasty Cooks For Lovers”, and is priced at the very reasonable sum of $4:99.

Bon appetite Mon Cherie.
Aunt Nasty

PS: You may like to consider at this point buying that state of the art, high-tech, makes-everything-but-toast microwave you were looking at the other day. Be sure to charge it to your beloved though.

PPS: I believe Habitation have a lovely range of ‘Bangers and Mash’ wallpaper, it would save Mr. Grumpy doing it himself.


Dear Aunt Nasty,
I’m Goth, he’s Garage.
What should I do?
Yours truly,
Black in Blackwell

Dear Black
Sell the car!

Aunt Nasty.

Dear Aunt Nasty,
My life is not worth living. I am so unhappy. Nobody loves me and I can’t face another day of living like this. If you don’t do something I’m going to kill myself
Please help.

Yours truly, Miserable in the pits of hell.

Dear Miserable.
Shut up, you snivelling period that ends a perfect sentence.
What makes you think the next world will want you any more than this one does?
However, if you insist, I do believe that hanging is the fashionable way to go these days. But please, if you do, don’t wear that horrendous floral dress. Spare a thought for whoever finds you, and do something about your hair; it’s a mess.

Aunty Nasty.

PS: do you know you have a string of hideously infected green mucus hanging from your right nostril?


Dear Aunt Nasty,
My wife keeps putting me down. Every time we go out in company she makes wisecracks all night at my expense. Last week she told the football team that our budgie has a bigger dick than I do.
Please help.

Limp in Limbo.

Dear Limp,

Wait until your lovely wife is asleep. Then, you know that huge puss-filled boil at the top of her inner thigh? (You may have to hunt a little through the layers of fat to find it.) Rub it with some local anaesthetic cream to numb it. This is the tricky bit; if she wakes up at this point (bear in mind that she is probably dreaming about some man who’s hung like a donkey at the time), she is going to remember very quickly just why she bought that magnifying glass last week.
Wait ten minutes for the anaesthetic cream to take effect. This would be an excellent time to peruse at leisure my informative self-help leaflet on penile length enhancement (Auntie’s surgical guide to rampant happiness. $4:99 + P&P).

There. Your good lady shouldn’t feel a thing. Insert into the moist part of the boil a fine catheter reed. (It might be an idea not to inhale. After three hours lying in bed with her legs closed, that baby is going to be pretty ripe.) Attach to the reed a hair-fine laparoscopy tube. (If you can’t find one of these then any old piece of tubing will do.) Take the other end of the tubing and insert into your darling’s mouth.

A couple of hours of sucking her own poison should temper her temperance.

Aunt Nasty.

PS: shoot the budgie.


Well, boys and girls, that’s it for this month. Auntie’s got to go now, it’s pension day and the ideal time to startle old ladies outside the bingo hall.

Next month we have letters from:

A lady who thinks she might kill her child if it doesn’t stop whining.

(I say go for it love. You’ll be out in eight years with good behaviour. Beats eighteen years hard labour rearing the little git.)

Also, we have a letter from the man who’s in love with a pig.

(Darling, you have to lie with a lot of pigs before you find the slimy cockroach you will settle down with. Take it from Auntie who has kissed a lot of pigs.)

Keep those letters flooding in folks. They do make me giggle so.

And remember Auntie’s motto:


Dear Aunt Nasty
My eighteen-year-old son has the smelliest feet in living (or perhaps dead and decaying) history. His bedroom is a pit of rancid aroma and when the door is opened or closed a thick, green, putrid, fog wafts down the stairs and into the living room sending any visitors running for the hills. The poor dog whines in misery if her nose is in line with my son’s socks. And the council have hung a toxic poison notice on our front door.
Please help
Yours truly, Overwhelmed in Soxfordshire

My dear Overwhelmed.
This one is easy. Take your aromatic offspring back to his youth, build him a tree house and send him out to live in the garden.
Alternatively next time he really pisses you off, make him a relaxing cup of ‘cotton seep’ tea by soaking his stiffest socks in boiling water for five minutes and telling him its the latest ‘herbal’ remedy for sweaty feet.
I do hope this helps.
Lots of love
Auntie xxx

Dear Aunt Nasty
Please help I am beside myself with worry. Whilst watering my auntie Nell’s plants (she’s in hospital having her prolapsed rectum lifted and her varicose veins pulled) I accidentally smashed her favourite ornament. It’s a hideous pot dog, which has already had its head glued back on twice and has lost one leg. Alas this time despite my best efforts with Superglue and enthusiasm it is beyond repair. Auntie Nellie will be devastated.
Careless in Clarksville

What are you worrying about? You have done the woman a service getting rid of the tasteless piece of crap. Make an equally hideous mosaic tile out of all the broken pieces and tell her its Art Nouveux. She’ll be delighted.
And anyway look on the bright side, she may have a thrombosis and not come out of hospital. That way your sin will never catch up on you. At least if she’s left you the nasty thing in her will you won’t feel obligated to display it with your best crystal.
Give your self a break … oops you already did
Lots of love

Dear Aunt Nasty
My fourteen-year-old daughter has just become involved with her first serious boyfriend. The problem is that she is walking around with the most horrendous bruises all over her neck. She says they are love bites but to me she looks positively maimed. What should I do?
Horrified in Hickiesville.

Well darling, my first suggestion is… Feed the boy.
 He must be positively ravenous.
Isn’t it amazing just how big a teenage boy’s mouth is and how much damage it can inflict? Have you tried the mirror test to see if this young man has a reflection? Smother your daughter in Garlic my dear, it’s the only way. Coat her from head to foot, after all if he’s done that to her neck just imagine what he’s … Oh dear that’s just too horrible to contemplate. Auntie just had a little turn at the thought. This Jack-the-lad may not be a vampire but at least it’ll guarantee that he won’t want to be too near your girl. Neither will anyone else for that matter, I would suggest repeating this procedure three times a day until she is twenty two.
Lots of love Auntie xxx

Dear Aunt Nasty.

I am in my last term of Uni. My final exams are imminent and I am unbelievably behind with my course work. My parents are relying on me to get distinctions in all of my exams and I am doomed to failure. Suicide seems to be the only way out of the mess I find myself in. Please save me.
Harassed in Harvard.

Chill out man.
Do what all the other students do. Take out an enormous student loan that you have absolutely no feasible chance of paying back within the next seventy years or so. Shag as many girls, boys or both as you possibly can. And take so many mind altering drugs that your brain oozes pretty colours all over the place. This would be a good time to drop your course in favour of a modern art degree and then at least you can seep psychadelic brain ooze merrily all over a collage and get one A. Re-sit every year for the next fifteen years. Trust me, no matter what your parents say this is what they expect of you, and they will already have prepared themselves for a lifetime of disappointment.
Lots of love
Auntie xxx

Dear Aunt Nasty
My husband stole a Mars bar from me. I know this may seem a small insignificant crime to you, but to me it represents a world of broken trust. What should I do?
Distrustful somewhere in the Milky-way.

Dearest Distrustful.
Shoot the bastard with a high calibre, double barrel, sawn-off shotgun. Make the punishment fit the crime I say.
Lots of love

Dear Aunt Nasty.
My boyfriend wants to have anal sex with me. What do you advise?
Clenched and tense in Bottomly

Oh my dear clenched.
I whole-heartedly approve. Go for it darling.
After all what could be better for giving the old sex life a healthy boost than some good old fashioned loving in the open air. We have some lovely canals dotted around the country and I believe the Norfolk Broads are wonderful in spring. You need to hire yourself a barge, and don’t forget to make sure it is fitted with lifejackets. Be careful when you go through the locks in case people see your bare bottom bouncing up and down, and if you have a horse to pull the barge don’t forget to feed him plenty of fresh hay.
What a lovely boyfriend you must have I’d love a man to offer me some canal sex.
Lots of love

Ps You might like to buy yourself a new keyboard my darling. Your C key doesn’t appear to be working.

Well my angels that brings us to a close for another month.

 Next month we have the curious case of the man who thinks he’s a left footed boot.
Auntie’s advice to him is to pull his sock up and find a mate.
And the girl who says prostitution doesn’t pay. Well of course not dear when you are promoting buy one get three free and hundred percent discounts.

Take care now children and remember love each other. One kind word cancels out a thousand harsh ones. Ladies attend to those little details that keep your men coming home to you each night. And Gentlemen don’t forget to treat her like a lady.
Till next time, Remember Auntie’s motto

"Shalomar’s Review: This is truly the unfunniest thing I’ve ever read. Perhaps the British have wildly different tastes in humor, I dunno. Didn’t do anything for me except make me scratch my head." -- Cam Davis.
"Wow I'm amazed at the trouble your group has gone to in doing this. Thank you Cam. It's all a litle overwhelming. And thank you too Shalomar. you didn't like this but you were respectful and polite about it. " -- Sooz, Dalton-in-furness, England, Cumbria.
