...but so nosy!

 

This robin was quite determined to see what I was doing, so when I playfully moved to put a branch between us, he stretched up his neck and peered down his beak with such disdain!

For those unfamiliar with the face... this is George Osborne, the Tory Chancellor of the Exchequer here in the UK.

Mr Osborne is my number one pet hate (from an ever growing list).

Regardless of my obvious political bias... I just cannot stand this fellow (and I bet I'm not the only one).

 

Helen, this is my submission to the "Pet Hate" photo challenge :>)

In celebration of the Bonzo Dog Band reunion tour I have put together a collage based on Viv Stanshall's 'My Pink Half of the Drainpipe' epic song. Well, it's probably not an epic as most people would understand it, but it does tell a story.

 

The photos are all from flickr, and kosher 'creative commons' jobs.

You who speak to me across the fence

Of common sense

How your tomato plant will win a prize,

won't that be nice,

And by the way, how's your wife?

Your holidays were spent in Spain

You went by train

You'll go again

 

Have you seen me bullfight poster on the wall?

Do you know the ‘appy memory it recalls?

Here's a photograph of me and my son, Ted

That's me cousin with his hanky on his head!

We booked in at our ‘otel just after two

And met a family from Bradford that we knew

 

Oooh, a melody! Burp!

 

My pink half of the drainpipe

Separates next door from me

My pink half of the drainpipe

Oh, Mama!

Belongs to me

 

Rodney's vain saxaphone solo, as promised

 

My pink half of the drainpipe

Semi-detach-ed, ah!

My pink half of the drainpipe

Oh, Mama!

Belongs to moi

 

I have a sister in Toronto who's a nurse

And I've had a bit of bother laying turf

It's life, not books, that taught me all I've learned

Woop, in the b'oven my rice pudding's getting burned!

‘Ere, have you seen the new attachment on me drill?

I must have the cat put down, ‘cause he's ill

 

Hey, neighbour!

 

My pink half of the drainpipe

I may paint it blue

My pink half of the drainpipe

Keeps me safe from

you!

 

I'm a wobbly jelly, you're a pink blancmange

I'm a sherry trifle, you're a chocolate sponge

Your dad wears a paper hat, mine inflates balloons

Whoops! Boodly boop! Pop! Here comes a spoon!

 

My pink half of the drainpipe

Separates me from the incredibly fascinating story of your life and

every day to day event in all it's minute and tedious attention to

detail... And was it a Thursday or a Wednesday? Or, oh, no, it wasn't though. Oh,

who cares anyway because I do not so Norman, if you're normal, I intend to

be a freak for the rest of my life, and I shall baffle you with cabbages

and rhinoceroses in the kitchen incessant quotations from "Now We Are

Six" through the mouthpiece of Lord Snooty's giant poisoned electric

head.

 

So

theeeeeere.........
