The Old Masters – re-interpreted 20

Well, we’ve made 20 attempts to mis-interpret the Old Masters so far; and 20 is also a significant number in that we reached 20,000 readers/visitors this week. Now, I’m not sure whether 20,000 real, live, actual people visited this blog or if it’s just one person who hasn’t quite grasped interweb navigation yet. Either way – you okes need to get out more.

This week, in honour of the auspicious occasion I felt we needed to go highbrow. And who better to inflict our aspersive commentary on, but the innocents of the ballet world (you can do these sort of things when you’re oozing Monet, y’see.)

Ok, who's the wise-arse with the bubble gum?

About Freud Fission Chips

Despite the banality of the name, FFC has led an intensely varied life. Grateful for surviving almost three years as a 'troepie' (soldier for non-South African Readers) in the Angolan war, he determined to wring as much out of life as possible. Currently providing Business Analysis services, trading on the stock market and developing web pages to pay the bills, FFC also dabbles in wildlife, landscape and people photography, writing, and far too many interests for his own good. He has also travelled extensively in southern Africa (working on the sound theory that a moving target is more dificult to hit). These peregrinations also include over 1500kms on foot through some of the worlds most spectacular scenery. It hasn't all been plain sailing, beer and skittles, and endless beds of roses... Chief amongst the prerequisites for surviving Africa, with its mind-bending characteristics, is an appropriate sense of humour.... So, for now, he will be recounting the amusing among the annoying, the frustrating wrapped in the funny and extracting the mirth from the melancholy... Oh yes, there might be some alliteration too.
