My original post 2018:
People Magazine’s sexiest man alive, 1883.
/// Young Sir Thomas was cryptic; a riddle.
Enigmatic: obscure; non-committal.
All his choices, he’d hide—
never choosing a side.
So, he parted his hair in the middle.
Nah, the whip is fine.It’s the pervestache that was his undoing.
My original comment: The ladies who were into s&m didn’t choose Perry because of the whip; it was his punishing mustache that attracted them.
when they told him he should whip it out on grinder I think he got it wrong…
I just sat on a Clydesdale tu*d.
“You go to the women ? Don’t forget the whip !” – Nietzsche
“SWM looking for foxy SWF for a little tally-ho.”
I don’t always carry a whip when I binge drink. But when I do calf’s skin has a nice crack to it.
His favorite pick-up lines: “Hey Babe…..Got any lions that need taming?”
“Hey Sweetheart….Want to see what’s under the Big Top?”
“Hey Gorgeous….How’d you like to come back to the lions den and watch me whip those pussycats into shape?”
“Pip, pip, tallyho! It’s off to the foxes we go!”
He has brought out the whip; he’s done horsing round.
He should crop out the riding crop.
That’s why I wish I had a pencil thin mustache. /The “Boston Blackie” kind. /A two-toned Ricky Ricardo jacket / And an autographed picture of Andy Devine. / Oh, I could be anyone I wanted to be / Maybe suave Errol Flynn or the Sheik of Araby / If I only had a pencil thin mustache / Then I could do some cruisin’ too / Yeah, Bryl-cream, / a little dab’ll do yah / Oh, I could do some cruisin’ too
But he would eventually marry, and his great-grandson would become the lead guitarist in a massively popular rock band.
Though his elegant whip, long and thin / Might imply his intentions are grim / Yet the look of surprise / In his sheepish round eyes / Would suggest they’re to use it on him.
You can tell by the curl of his lip/
On his radar, you aren’t a blip../
It’s abundantly clear/
He was born with a sneer../
The “silver spoon” comes with a whip.
Few know that Raiders of the Lost Ark was a remake of an original film with a much less heroic Indiana Jones
From the length of the whip it is clear/
He’s a sniveling cur/
Who thinks he’s Ben Hur/
With a supercilious sneer…
Dos Equis’s less-successful ad pitchman, The Most Revolting Man in the World.
“Here at Whips-R-Us, we do S&M in the safety of your home. Give us a call today.”
Rick always had the best behaved kids in town. That’s why it was such a mystery to the townsfolk when the kids hung Rick with his whip – for no apparent reason!
Rick later gamed fame as a stand-in for Tim Curry in ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’.
His title is Master of Hounds/
With barking his household resounds./
Drop by for a treat/
But watch out for your feet- /
Since with “droppings” it also abounds.

I have added a comment there (awaiting Mr. Melcher’s approval) with the artist info I used to point to here. So far 4 works, by this artist, have been used here (6 times total, including 2 repeats with this Throwback Thursday), the November 9, 2018, strip being its first use (the public artist info URLs included in my comment there are here links in the aforementioned blog comment).
After years of painting nothing but beautiful women with long curling red hair, Anthony was ready for a change.
I may be a dandy, but I’m whip smart and handy.
it’s a good thing he is rich, but the ladies don’t want him because he is gay and likes boys anyway. he needs a whip to keep them away.
I just couldn’t whip up any comment about the painting today.
