Rock and roll on a PC

Rock and roll on a PC

Even though he was outdoors and in open space, Doova managed to find a place where he could suspend a large boulder and drop it on his misbehaving computer.

Puppies love their PC

Puppies love their PC

It isn’t all about hate. Sometimes a nice pair of puppies can make everything better!

Acid never really helps PC repairs

Acid never really helps PC repairs

Singing in the acid rain. It is good to see Doova has a drip tray to catch the toxic waste. I’m not sure that’s gonna work though.

Feel like punching your PC?

Feel like punching your PC?

I once punched a printer and cut my hand quite badly. So here’s a warning to kids at home…don’t try this! Doova is a trained professional and a cartoon character. His actions can’t always be copied without risk of serious injury.

Special treatment for good PCs

Special treatment for good PCs

“Breakfast in bed…”. Personally I can’t think of anything that a computer could do that would warrant this sort of luxurious treatment. Unless Doova plans to spill that hot coffee?

Cannibalising computers

Cannibalising computers

Taking no prisoners - OK taking two prisoners. Doova plays dress-ups and boils personal computers of all types. There’s something special about cannibalizing a computer. The taste though is dubious.

PC vice, Don Johnson it ain't

PC vice, Don Johnson it ain't

Sometimes the love doesn’t last long though. In Doova’s toolshed a vice is the perfect tool for destroying those stubborn bits of PC that refuse to yield with normal violence.

Why is the PC in his soup?

Why is the PC in his soup?

Hey Doova, I am not sure that putting your computer in your soup does anything other than make your soup taste bad. Granted, the computer probably won’t work after that. It is hardly a drastic and dramatic punishment for a bad computer though.

Boogers, that's just gross

Boogers, that's just gross

Oh man this is gross. 10 points for your aim though Doova. My snot is never so obliging. P.S. why is that PC in the middle smiling - he’s twisted.

Pirahnas take care of business

Pirahnas take care of business

Now this is more like it! A friend of mine has a tank of Piranhas. They are ruthless. Once he fed them something they didn’t like so they ate each other. Harsh!

Bad dreams for naughty PCs

Bad dreams for naughty PCs

If computers behaved themselves they wouldn’t have bad dreams. A clear conscience is always the best thing for a good night’s sleep. And remember; don’t go to bed angry unless you are the lead singer for Rose Tattoo.

Ooops, my mistake

Ooops, my mistake

I can’t explain it but I suddenly feel like a baguette and fromage. Doova likes to let his friends partake of the fun. He seems to know a lot of dogs.

180!!!

180!!!

180! Nice hair by the way Doova. It looks like a cow has licked the back of your head. The picture on the wall is a bit spooky.

It is knife to have you hang around

It is knife to have you hang around

This makes more sense than the outside one with a rock. At least there’s a roof here for the PC to hang from. Is it legal to own so many knives Doova? They look pretty sharp. What is your secret (aside from a psychopathic knife fetish)?

BING, but not that kind

BING, but not that kind

Oh yeah, radiation! Now that will mess with your circuits. I’d take a step back if I were you Doova. You know how well metal and microwave ovens mix.

Go ahead, make my day

Go ahead, make my day

After watching too much American television, Doova pulls out his magnum and tries to plug the holes in his PC. Sadly the bullets just flew straight through. Who would have guessed?

How romantic, it's a good day

How romantic, it's a good day

In the end, we love it when they work :-)

Darth Vadar from Planet Vulcan

Darth Vadar from Planet Vulcan

When I blow dry my armpits I sometimes find that the air from hairdryers can be quite hot. Because Doova doesn’t have hair or armpits he turns his blow-drying frustrations onto an unsuspecting PC. Well that is what he told the cops anyway.

You do that voodoo you do

You do that voodoo you do

After failing at starting his own religion and being expelled from a cult for being too serious, Doova decided to try Voodoo. Is it me or are there just way too many Vs and Os in that sentence?

Stop, I think I hit something

Stop, I think I hit something

Doova borrowed the idea from the 1980’s when computer clones were being crushed. He got the tank cheap on eBay. Nice!

"You literally blend it"

"You literally blend it"

Feeling a little like a celebrity chef, Doova blitzes the PC to make a braised quad quad in a rococo of couscous. When cooking make sure the mixture is turned frequently to ensure thorough and even burning. Hmmm, silicon and solder! Yummmm!

OK, you're pissing me off

OK, you're pissing me off

Fair call, I don’t know why we are watching you in the bathroom Doova. You have to admit though, peeing on a computer is a little mucky even for you!

Happy new year

Happy new year

Our hero Doova, named after those nameless gadgets we all despise, was born in the year 2008. Despite being quite young, the first thing Doova decided to do was see-in his first new year with a bang. He wasn’t expecting it to go well.
