Apologies for entirely gratuitous post, designed solely to enable stock pun and to show off gorgeous green vase what Lucy Tartan and Dorian guv me.

Dale Slamma said...

Lovely. Very high on the loveliness scale.

Beth said...

LOVE the vase. Not so much the pun....(ah, who am I kidding. Of course I love the pun)

Your pun sent me straight to King Lear -- watch out humans, especially if you break vases, or advise people against accepting unwise inheritances!

Alexis, Baron von Harlot said...

The pun comes in forty different flavours, i.e., "Invest in stocks [picture of pillory]", "Invest in stocks [picture of them things that help you ski]", "Invest in stocks [picture of vegetable stock], "Invest in storks [picture of stork]", "Invest in stalks [picture of stalk]", et cetera, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera, et hoc genus omne.

Meanwhile, it's the beautifullest vase I've ever seen, and I've seen a few.

As for King Lear, gosh he makes my skin crawl. And I still think it's strange he named his daughters after venereal diseases: Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and the other one. What was her name? Rabies? That'll teach the zoophiles.

Myself, I invest in Bonds regularly.

Flours? Flours? Would anyone like to by my beautiful flours?

Alexis, Baron von Harlot said...

If they're gluten-ough for you, Tim, they're gluten-ough for me.
