The Old Masters – re-interpreted 116

With the stock markets taking a battering on a global scale and the politicians appearing to plummet to new levels of incompetence and buffoonery, we here at the Institute beseech you to stay in front of your screens. Don’t leap off buildings; if for no other reason than a kind thought for the person who has to clean up down there. No, stay glued to your monitor because we’re about to do to an artist what ought to be done to many politicians. As Columbo might express it: “Moider da bum.” However, we won’t just put an end to his end, as it were, we intend mutilating his reputation as well.

If your name was Frederik Hendrik Kaemmerer, I’d tell you to run like blazes – but in all probability it’s not; which is convenient because that’s whose reputation is going up in smoke today.

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.
