The Old Masters – re-interpreted 113

Well, we might as well do something topical for a change. No, I am not going to make any comment on hunting, canned or otherwise; besides, in ten months the world in general will have forgotten the dentist, so we might as well rub salt in his wounds while we vandalise the intentions of another Old Master.

The supercomputer here at the Institute randomly picked on the artist Jacopo Torni (a quick glance at the painting and it looks as if Panthera leo has Torni-s clothes right off).

Ah yes - a cavity in the upper right bicuspid. I'll have to administer the filling with my bow and arrow. Now where did that Professional Hunter go?

Ladies and gentlemen, I have just been handed a note by the editor. It seems over 30 000 different visitors have exceeded 50 000 views of this site. I can only say that you all must be very different to find your way here. As a token of my undying gratitude, I submit another Old Master for your amusement. The bloke to blame for this effort is Amedeo Modigliani – and that in itself deserves a jolly good pounding, what?

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.
