The Old Masters – re-interpreted 57

“Put down your knitting, the book or the broom…”
It’s time to malign another Old Master, old chum.
No, you don’t have to sing the rest of the song, Simon Cowell and his supercilious attitude are safely somewhere else and it’s time to don our own supercilious demeanour.

I have no idea who this week’s Old Master is; but that has never stopped us before. What matters is that the artist is probably dead and is in no position to defend himself or his works.

"Come now Eustice! Let's take a leaf out of Hefner's book, as it were, and insert a centrefold into Gardener's Weekly. It's bound to improve our circulation and swell the coffers." "Capital idea George! I can feel an improvement in my circulation already."

“Come now Eustice! That Hefner chap isn’t a complete fool y’know. Inserting a centrefold into Gardener’s Weekly might be slightly off topic; but she is bound to increase our sales and swell the coffers.”
… “Capital idea George! I can feel an improvement in my circulation already.”


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.
