Too obscure for me , boofon. Fit's the connection?



Animal magic. Animal magic


Nutkins is an animal nut. So much so he got his finger bitten off by an otter.


You post a picture of some mythical croc/ hippo combo, I think that's a magical animal so we get Animal magic and Terry Nutkins.

Went to see 'Headhunters' at the Belmont this morning , Norwegian Noir. The Norwegians are getting affa good at a'thing , a lorra good jazz coming out of there nowadays and this is a decent movie.


The movie involves art theft , in particular a Rubens , worth millions.


Knew little about Rubens before I entered the cinema but reckoned I liked him mair nor Damien Hirst , so when I got hame I did what comes naturally and googled.


Which led to an examination of this particular pintin.....which is not the one in the movie( which may be ficticious - 'Dogs Attacking Boar in Calydonian Forest' ).


A random impulse made me post on here since I hivnae visited ye's a' for a filey.

Can you do Terry next week?






Many Dandies will testify that there's only one Terry....particulary the Torryloon aka WattyFeugh and the inimitable hajduk.....the blinner is also partial to a bit of Terry !
