“Translations (like wives) are seldom faithful if they are in the least attractive”


Yes, it’s all been a bit too serious around here this week; probably an unconscious hangover from last week’s obsequies. They all went well, with laughter and piano jazz, good food and good wine. I wore my skull and crossbones tie, as long promised.

I think it’s time for a belly-laugh, and this lot might make your belly laugh. If it doesn’t laugh, it could well gurgle.

Today’s caustic headline is from Roy Campbell, found in the June/July 1949 issue of Poetry Review.
