Are you feeling glum?

So now the Olympics have finished you might be feeling a little glum. A bit depressed even - especially if you can't fit into a leotard without the use of a crowbar or lift a beer can to your mouth without taking a pep pill.

I have a remedy for this.

Read this story and look at the accompanying pictures. If this story does not make you laugh you need a humour transplant. It's about an elderly woman who chose to "restore" a fresco entitled Ecce Homo (Behold the Man) by Elias Garcia Martinez in the Sanctuary of Mercy Church, near Zaragoza in Spain. Unfortunately, her restoration has made Jesus Christ look like he's suffering an agony worse than the crucifixion as well as suffering from acute constipation. I haven't worked out why he wearing the Eskimo headress. 

My comment on this story is; I cannot wait till I'm eighty and I can get away with that kind of stuff. I'd try it now but I'd probably get arrested. 

Alternatively, I could get a degree in Modern Art and everyone would think it's a work of genius.

Hmm. On consideration, I will till I'm eighty. Three years glueing mothballs together or pulling my laundry out of my washing machine and photographing it from numerous angles does nothing for me. 

Roll on senility!

  1. This little old lady's 'restoration' did indeed give me a shudder.

    But nothing compared to the sight of Prince Harry's bum! Oh, Harry, Harry, what were you thinking?!?! A spokesperson stated he was just "letting off some steam". I do believe he was actually letting off another, er, emission. I'm sure his granny loved seeing those pics. Just the thing for this year's Christmas card. lol

  2. I fear Her Majesty would not be amused, Marie! However, personally I'd love a card with Harry on the front - even with tinsel on his balls!!!
