The Old Masters – re-interpreted 135

Well, I trust you’re raring to go, champing at the bit and all those equestrian idioms indicating that you’re keen as mustard to return to work, school or the asylum.

Before you go, why not have a bash at misinterpreting an Old Master, eh what? I mean, it’s harmless innocent fun – and what’s more, it’s free.

Today we minister unto the remains of John Trumbull; and if you happen to be hanging around the Rotunda of the US Capitol, you’ll see this in all it’s gory glory.

I’m sorry chaps. We have to shoot the entire battle scene again. Apparently my horse is too camp…er…refined for Mel Gibson.

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.
