Mail art postcard. No. 4509…

But first…
Dulltown, UK/Europe: Today’s dictionary words are: ajowan, aitchbone, aguacate, Ahuramazda, agouti, alabamine, and welladay. 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 the top of a makeshift cardboard pillar in the style of Simeon Stylites the Elder. (click) You must not allow this to interfere with your studies.

Hm, yes, it’s another of my mail art postcards, a simple collage on brightish card using a couple of clippings from that dreary UK TV listings magazine, What’s On TV.

I’m pretty sure this chap is an actor – looking at him, he’s acting away really convincingly – he’s quite good, isn’t he? I think he might be a central character in some British soap opera, I’m afraid I can’t tell you which one, as I never watch such things – I once sat in front of one at someone else’s house for a few minutes and straightway broke out in a throbbing red rash – which fortunately disappeared completely as soon as the TV was covered with a thick rug.
For this card (which I think I should allow you find some meaning in for yourself) I think I was drawn in by the phrase ‘glamorous soap starlets game’ – it’s catchy, isn’t it? I see that it has an exclamation mark after it, as if it should be shouted.
Come on dear readers, let’s all shout it together across the world – Glamorous soap starlets game! Glamorous soap starlets game! Glamorous soap starlets game! Glamorous soap starlets game!…
Do you think it’s the game that is glamorous, or is it those lovely soap starlets? What are soap starlets anyway?… Sound’s like something you might find around your bathroom sink and spattered on the mirror above it…

Gosh, I think I feel alright, no sign of a rash yet…
