Mail art postcard. No. 4618…

But first…
Dulltown, UK/Europe: Today’s dictionary words are: gadwall, Gadhel, Gaekwar, gadroon, gadsman, and thrum. Please have these words looked up and placed in suitable sentences ready for Professor Mouldie first thing after breakfast tomorrow morning. The professor will be conducting the lesson from a platform on top of scaffolding erected specially for the occasion in the north corner of the classroom.

Mm, another mail art postcard – a simple collage on bright card using clippings from that tawdry UK TV listings magazine What’s On TV.

I’m not at all sure what’s going on here.
Who is this chap? He’s probably famous in his field, and most of you will be saying ‘Oh, I know him, that’s Willy Sweeze the famous…’
The famous what? Oh, it must be diving – or, perhaps it’s gritting your teeth, holding your breath and levitating? Just look at those beads of sweat! Is levitating an Olympic sport now? If it was, I might even watch it on the TV – I don’t like all the other sports they have – all that pointless running about, and throwing things, and jumping over things, not to mention hitting each other in the face and body, or rolling about on the floor with each other. No, sport has never been my thing. Do something creative with your time, I say – and for god’s sake stop showing off and wrapping yourselves in your national flag – it’s all just too embarrassing!…
Oh, sorry about that.
Isn’t it odd that he is lit from below by blue light? Perhaps it’s in his contract – I’m not performing unless I get my special blue lamps installed! And that’s the end of the matter! I’ll be in the bar of my hotel, you can call me when you’ve got them sorted out and glowing!… Ha!…

So, what do you think of my choice of stuck-on text, Exposed!?
Are you searching for meaning dear reader?
I am – I don’t know what it signifies either, but I think it does work quite well… Ha!…
