The Old Masters – re-interpreted 160

G’day all. A really quick one today as I feel like an egg in milk protein…. I’ve been whey-laid. [groan – Mrs Chips]. If you took a wrong turning and landed here by mistake, today’s the day we exercise our rights, lefts and the odd boot or two, as we lambaste the reputations of the Old Masters.

Today’s sacrifice is an unknown artist – but don’t let that put you off.

As usual, the bridegroom finds his stag do considerably less amusing than his so-called friends do. Here, Dave considers the alternatives – hang on to the stag and entertain his friends or release the animal and increase his chances of a happy honeymoon.


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.
