The Old Masters – re-interpreted 80

Greetings from this primitive corner of Africa. Our DSL line is still down (eight days and counting). In the light (‘a very unfunny choice of phrase’ – Mrs Chips) of the ‘current‘ power problems causing a hiatus in the weekly post of Old Master punishment, I thought it only fair to give you a 50% bonus this week – Vodacrap permitting….

For our first misinterpretation, we shall attempt to clobber Frederic Bazille.

The quintessential bachelor's pad in the 1800s showing us that girly pinups are nothing new

To show there is no favoritism, our super-computer has randomly chosen the next victim; one  James Jacques Joseph Tissot (1836-1902)

Mishearing the Captain's instruction to "Make ready a couple of oars for tomorrow's regatta", caused red faces all round, and a formal apology from the Admiral for casting doubt upon the damsels' virtue.

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.
