    My original reply in 2018. Still appropriate now, if I do say so myself:

    Man still angry at himself for not selling Netflix at $400.

    /// "I’m a masculine brute, that’s for sure.

    With my manliness I am secure.

    Those who’d ape my look seek,

    not my muscled physique,

    but my lustrous full-bodied coiffure."

    He’s trapped in a foreign land/

    He’ll be visiting longer than planned/

    He exudes indignation/

    For the train left the station/

    While the door knob came off in his hand///

    Now he sits at the table drumming/

    Til his fingers are slowly benumbing/

    But his woes are not done/

    He’ll be told “Sorry,son,/

    Compensation will not be forthcoming.”

    Now travel has lost its allure:/

    Where he’s spending the night is unsure/

    His luggage is at gone/

    And he faces the dawn/

    With no comb to control his coiffure!

    Portrait of a Venetian Gentleman

    Paste (including the quote marks) 

    "File:Tizian 080.jpg" site=commons.wikimedia.org 

    (syntax supported by the Google, Yahoo, Bing, Duckduckgo, Ecosia, and Yandex search engines) in the browser address bar (or search for it using one of those search engines) and chose the first File: link found for info and links that point to more info (best viewed using Google Chrome, which can automatically translate most webpages if necessary) about this roughly jumbo envelope size painting. File history has strip coloration image.

     

    Again, a larger strip image is shown by merely clicking the image in Mr. Melcher’s THROWBACK THURSDAY: MASTERPIECE #2008 (8/1/18) (May 25, 2022) blog entry, accessible by the Check out the blog! box after the last comment. I have added a comment there (awaiting Mr. Melcher’s approval) pointing to the artist info I used to point to here. First work by this artist used here (2 times, including this Throwback Thursday repeat). The August 1, 2018, strip has this painting’s first use (the artist URLs in my comment there are here links in my blog comment).

    Poor Giovanni. He bought a gray squirrel from the pet store, imported from North America. He brought it home to hold it and love it and call it “George”. But the squirrel kept trying to wriggle free, so Giovanni had to hold it tighter, until it became the size of a mouse and stopped wriggling…
