The Old Masters – re-interpreted 34

Quick! Grab a weapon. It’s Wednesday and we need to assail the integrity of the Old Masters – well, one in particular today. Next week, another one. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves shall we?

Today’s victim is Peter-Paul-Rubens. Sorry hey.

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.

    Lucille saved the day by noticing the approaching bus and flagging it down.

    Then and now the average Glaswegian still cannot comprehend that deep fried Mars Bars can make you hyper!

    • Hi Mike,

      I believe a deep-fried-Mars-Bar isn’t an urban legend but a cholesterol-filled fact!?!?!

      I think my heart, liver and giblets would simply give up the ghost right there.

      PS Thanks for visiting again. Great to see you here mate.

        Tis a delicacy in Glasgow – once upon on a visit there I noted a frozen pizza being deep friend also!

      • It’s a sad realisation I know. The Scots might be a great nation – chock full of inventors, theologians, etc etc. But it appears there’s something deadfully lacking in the tastebud department. 🙂

        As a Glaswegian, I can attest to the teeth-rotting sugar saturated obesity inducing diet of the town. A typical days intake:

        1. Deep-fried pizza left over from the previous night;
        2. Deep-fried ice-cream;
        3. Deep-fried <>;
        4. Sweeties of infinite variety and sugaryness;
        5. Cakes, pastries, fancy cakes of infinite variety; and finally
        6. Eleventeen pints of heavy and a mince vindaloo.

      • [Puts on pious expression] Oh no!?!?! That’s not very healthy at all.

        [private aside to MadMcMax] Vindaloo you say. I’m rather partial to quantities of Vindaloo. And Choccies too…..[dribble].

        Hang on a mo – I’m just getting my passport. Be there in ten….Chortle.

        PS Welcome again. It’s great having a Scot on my page.
