Big Vern is a character in the British adult-comedy comic Viz.
Big Vern is a gangster, a former gangster, or simply someone with a severe delusion about being one. He has no hesitation in killing people and has a seemingly endless supply of firearms. He shouts in time for the next episode. In recent escapades Vern, for some reason, has not killed Ernie - instead, he accuses Ernie of "setting him up" and then kills himself as usual.
Vern and Ernie go to stay at a hotel after slopping out and denounces a fellow guest as a nonce etc. He then goes stir crazy and launches a rooftop protest, sitting on the roof of the hotel and demanding better conditions. The final prison stereotype shows Vern sodomising Ernie in the shower claiming that "he hadn't see a woman for a long time".
One episode has Vern accompany him on a holiday to Majorca. Predictably other cars on the motorway are either full of tailing police officers or avenging members of the criminal fraternity. "Watch yer back, Ernie. We got company." So Ernie turns in the passenger seat to observe the vehicle behind them. It's an innocent little van bearing the legend George's Fruit Shop on the side.
