Mail Art Postcard No. 4588…

But first…
Dulltown, Europe: Today’s instruction is to experiment to see if you can ride two bicycles at once – by the way, no cheating by riding one and wheeling the other by the handlebar!

4588How’s this for a spot of surrealism?
It’s another of my mail art postcards – a card of verdant green with a couple of snippings from that awful British TV magazine, What’s On TV stuck on it.
This piece of work is obviously offering us a choice, isn’t it dear reader?
Is there an election in the offing that I haven’t heard about? Oh, goodness me, what a difficult choice! Hang on, do you think the cute dog is deliberately trying to make his nose look like the Führer’s moustache, and also is he trying to copy Mr H’s stern expression?…
So, which shall it be? ‘Führer Friday’ or ‘Jack Russell Sunday’ – I must confess that I have no idea what’s going on… They both have quite piercing eyes though don’t they? Is this satire then? Is it a pithy comment on current politics? The choice is between the ‘strong aggressive patriotic nationalistic fellow’ and the ‘engaging good-looking even-handed kindly chap’?… Yes, yes, I know one of them is a dog… What? You mean I have to vote! Oh damn… well, I suppose it’ll have to be the dog then…

  1. That dog has an expression that says “Wait…did you say its Monday tomorrow? Alone all day again *sigh* ” It struck me as amusing. As for that fellow on the other side, well he is more of a dog than the dog is. Hrmph.
