If a doddering old fart of a Joe groper was aged 90 he shouldn’t be sniffing round anything!—–he’d probably end up having a heart attack if he so much as tried to look up a young womans skirt 😀
There are some women though who, given half a chance,would take on a doddering, slavering, incontinent, 90 year old git as long as he had one foot in the grave, the other on a banana skin and had zillions in the bank——me i’d rather be poor 😀
Can’t help but wonder what’s in the white carrier bag the mans holding.
Their latest presription from the chemist? all that’s keeping them going now.
3 rashers of bacon each? all they can afford on their meagre pension.
A bottle of brown ale each? a little treat to while away the lonely hours.
not a lot of fun getting old is it.
Nope, it can be real bummer. There again there are some pretty sprightly 90 yr olds around!
As the Spice Girls said to an 80yr old Nelson Mandela, ” You’re only as old as the girl you feel” 🙂
Getting a sniff of a chance at that age though, might seem to be a slight issue for yr average doddering old fart joe groper :))
Fascinating post. Interesting to see Dadaism portayed in photography. I like the example given
THanks Ath’ London Dada, Dada as we see it, for the new times we live in.
” For us, art is not an end in itself … but it is an opportunity for the true perception and criticism of the times we live in.” – Hugo Ball co-founder DADA, 1916.
