    /// 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.

    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.

    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?”

    He has brought out the whip; he’s done horsing round.

    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/

    That he thinks he’s a charioteer./

    He’s a sniveling cur/

    Who thinks he’s Ben Hur/

    With a supercilious sneer…

    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!

    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.

    Paste (including the quote marks)

    (syntax supported by the Google, Bing, Yahoo, Duckduckgo, Ecosia, and Yandex search engines) in the address bar (or search for it using one of those search engines) and click the first File: found for info and links that point to more info about this roughly jumbo envelope size painting.


    Again, a larger strip image is shown by merely (⌘- or Ctrl-) clicking the image in Mr. Melcher’s THROWBACK THURSDAY: MASTERPIECE #2078 (11/9/18) (August 17, 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) 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.

    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.
