The Old Masters – re-interpreted 42

While the rest of the world clamours for its next fix of  sensationalism and gossip surrounding Oscar… The Oscars (*)… and Putin’s peccancy, we happy few, we band of brothers shan’t sully our noble characters with such dreck. No,  we’re going to shred the skills of the next Old Master.

(*)
Oscar – Pistorius
– a physically challenged (no feet) man who is on trial for murdering his girlfriend. He faces a possible life sentence
The Oscars – a gaggle of actors who are on trial by their peers for murdering character parts and massacring plots of movies written by apparently mentally challenged scriptwriters (mostly). Instead of punishment, they are lauded and awarded a statue – whereafter most of them will get entirely legless at several parties.
Putin – Russian President taking after the little Austrian house painter of yore, Putin appears to be invading Crimea.
The fine art of domestic budgeting: "Confound you, woman. We'd have had enough for TWO pizzas and Cokes if you hadn't bought that stupid hat. But no. Apparently you WANT to look like a delapidated coat hanger.

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.
