The Old Masters – re-interpreted 41

It’s been seven sunrises and sunsets since the last post, and what prompts us to bludgeon the noble efforts of the Old Masters? Tradition!

Well it’s got to be something like that because if you were a rich man, you probably wouldn’t be trawling the net, reading questionable blogs by total nonentities. However, seeing as you’re here, we might as well have a chortle at the painting below.

Jerry Bock's older brother Jeff, who, with his failed attempts at popular tunes, "Fiddler In The Basement", "Fiddler In The Closet" and "Fiddler In The Veggies", provided the inspiration necessary for Jerry to compose one of the more popular film scores of the 20th century... Moral of the story: Vegetables are good for you.

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.
