Appreciation of art is a wonderful thing, if you can find art worth appreciating of course.  This lot clearly didn't and possibly will produce an essay lacking in the finer understanding of Dutch art.  Not that this matters unless you are going to get involved therein I suppose, and this lot would probably not get beyond one of those Australian soap operas that dominate the telly in soft minded households.    

They might find it ironic that a double decker bus on 'rail replacement service' decided to crash into a railway bridge.  Good job the bus was still empty and the rail line not in use as folks were going to use a bus instead.  Sadly drivers unused to a route sometimes forget they were in double deckers, possibly they are more often driving that route in single deck buses, but occasionally this kind of accident happens.  More often lorry drivers hit the bridge ignoring height restrictions and just run off rather than stopping!  That too happened the other day.  
Also quite interesting was the 'Immigration Judge' who demanded a woman named Patel was brought to court so he could finish the case (an abusive boyfriend) that afternoon.  As her whereabouts were unknown it was said it would be difficult, indeed she might not get time off work.  The judge commented 
“It won’t be a problem. She won’t be working anywhere important where she can’t get the time off. She’ll only be working in a shop or an off-licence.”

Oops, a small slip which has cost him his £150,000 a year job.

Oh yes and being grumpy is good for you!
'Grumpy Cat,' or at least the owner, is supposed to have made around £64 million out of the miserable creature.  If being grumpy does this how come I'm still poor....?

If the cat can do it...when do you go viral?

Art is wasted on the young obviously ~ they were probably checking their Facebook status. Does Grumpy Cat have its own Facebook? I wonder?

Grumpy Cat personifies how I've been feeling these past couple of days!

Oh kids with phones in an Art Museum is very offensive to my poor tired brain. All phones should be turned off and placed out of sight and if seen the offending person kicked out. Grumpy could describe me after finishing my first batch of fruit cakes. This may be my last year to make them unless I get a strong male aka my son to stir for me. My body feels as if I hit that bridge in the news. Peace

Fly, What are you implying....??

Carol, I suspect the cat has a facebook page and more.

Lee, You're feeling happier then?

Lady, The world needs your cakes!

They'll produce excellent essays. Just not their own. They're probably cut and pasting right now.

Lee said...

Nope...just as grumpy.

Is cogitating anything like constipating?

Soub, I guess your right (I copied this answer).

Lee, Normal.

Jerry, You need a Thesaurus.
