Cool as a Cucumber is the second story in The Absurd Tales of Mr Griffs series. When there's a cockroach outbreak in the town of Cornville, Mr Griffs' cucumber patch is suddenly at the centre of everything. When word spreads that cucumbers can be use as an alternative remedy, Mr Griffs is comforted by an angry mob led by his neighbour and arch-nemesis, Steve Moran.
Mr Griffs and his neighbour, Steve Moran, rarely see eye to eye. In Never Assume, their long-standing rivalry escalates when Steve accuses Mr Griffs of digging holes in his garden. In response, Mr Griffs uses his wife’s spicy nuts to get back at him. The tension increases as they both continue to assume the worst in each other. Absurd and quirky, this is just a typical day in the life of Mr Griffs
