CCQ Teaser


EDIT 4 March: The previous version of this post had no title, tags, or words, but it upset Ms Scarlet, so I've included a minimal amount of those items now.  But what can it all mean? 

Answers on a postcard in the comments, please.

  1. I had to check to make sure Angela Lansbury was still alive and it seems that she is. Perhaps this could be a sequel where she becomes a paleobotanist later in life.

    1. Crikey! How much later in life has she got left?!

      (Obviously, I hope she has many, many years left. Enough to have two or three career changes, perhaps?)

    2. Awww, You've added me to your sideboard. I'm honored! Thanks, dear!

      I'd like to see Angela Lansbury and Betty White do a show together with other old greats stopping by like Maggie Smith, John Cleese, Robert Redford...

    3. Well, I had a bit of space - I just had to reposition the fruit bowl and get rid of that vase I don't like.

    4. Wrinklies' Reunion!

  2. Did you mean to publish this, Mr Devine? Where is the fitting title, where are the tags, and most importantly - where are the words???
    It is true, I probably could write a book, or produce an in depth photograph album, about mud!

    1. I did mean to publish it, Ms Scarlet. Although I can understand why you thought it might have been a mistake.
      I was going to add some words, but I didn't want to give too much away...

      Perhaps mud with a thin enough consistency could be used in place of ink?

    2. In the words of Miss Toyah: "It'th a Mythste-wee"... Jx

    3. Ew! I'm covered in spit now, Jon!

    4. Now the spit has dried, this post has suddenly appeared at the top of the Reading List, adding to the mystery...

      What subtle changes have been made to this "teaser", I wonder? Is it going to be like one of those peculiar "treasure hunt" books like Masquerade, where the dear reader has to pore through a magnifying glass at every detail to look for clues?

    5. The only things I've added are the tags 'Books', 'Ms Scarlet', and 'Triffids and such', but there's no more mystery. And certainly no bejewelled gold hare (or triffid) buried anywhere.

      Unless one the SubConsciousnesses has been out and about with a spade...

    6. That would have done it; all it takes is one small tweak and bang! off it shoots to the top of the list - although the gnomes of Google seem to have (at last) fixed the issue, because it's shot straight back down again to its rightful place in the list today...

      Good Gawd! WTF is that giant green Ziggurat doing in your sidebar??!! >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    7. I know! After the Pink Monstrosity, the Giant Old Lady, and a Narrowboat on the Moon that Dinah "lovingly" placed on my sideboard, it's getting quite used to oversized pictures now.

  3. I don't know what it means but I am ready with a hat.
    I will have to watch the season 1 episode where Jessica Fletcher buys a football team.....

    1. I bet Jessica's as big a football hooligan as Delilah Smythe!

      As for your hat, I hope it's of the tin foil variety?

  4. Mud? You could have warned me that hip waders are required.

    1. Even hip waders won't cut it. Perhaps a diving bell would be more suitable?

  5. This is clearly a post about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. You have Leonardo in his blue mask menacing a blue eyeball thing 'below' the 'Mud' which was written, and a mutant plant to put over the whole 'mutant' vibe. It's coded toon imagery. Yup.

    1. Well, that is certainly an interpretation. I hadn't thought of turtles, but now you mention it...

  6. I'm lost at the CCQ.I don't suppose it's the Congregation of Celestial Queers? Nah, too obvious. Councils Cooperating on Quagmires. Unlikely!
    I give up.

    1. You see - that CCQ title wasn't there when I first commented! Community Care Questionnaire? Concept Checking Question??? Oh!!!! We are going to have a quiz!!! I will shut up now.

    2. Well, really, it's tCotCQ. And no quiz because all shall be revealed tomorrow!

      (But I do rather like the Congregation of Celestial Queers)

  7. You have a big plant on your sideboard! It going to need a lot of water.

    Thank you, Melanie, for the overgrowth!!!

    1. It's a good job that it's tipping it down, then!

  8. Imagine if that were Aidan Turner in a towel.

    1. Oh, yes! We need to get someone with a Wordpress blog to feature (or whatever it is that makes a GIANT picture) a Tiny Towelled Mr Turner!

  9. I'm just happy that Jake's arse is back! xoxo
