The Old Masters – re-interpreted 47

Ah yes. Do come in. We’ve been expecting you. Let me take your hat and coat. If we don’t get enough for them we might have to raffle your shoes as well. Pull up a cudgel and prepare to bludgeon the reputation of the next Old Master.

This week, we get snotty with a Flemish artist (Snotty? Flem-ish? No one?… Not a sausage). Well anyway, his name was Michiel Sweerts.

Dyslexia in the workplace: The World Wildlife Organisation summarily terminates the commission of artist Michiel Sweerts after the unfortunate unveiling of his work entitled, "A Pride of loins at rest". The National Enquirer have, however offered to purchase his subsequent work, "Cheater with prey".

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.
