Spoofing Bacchus

  
Bacchus showed signs of alcohol abuse at a very young age. 

Note from me" I needed to lighten up so I'm posting this send-up for you.  This is an actual painting by Guido Reni; not an art parody.  I had to do a search on it to make sure!  :-D
I wish I had photoshop; it would be fun to caption it right on the image.

  5. Alas - the ultimate destiny of even the finest wines... At least we can hope they create some joy on the way through.

  7. I'm glad you all enjoyed the chuckle!

    Betmo: I'm tryin' but this winter has kicked my butt. I've been sick with a cold for almost three weeks and I've mostly been a recluse the entire winter, healthy or not. :-(

"When the Amherst sphinx styled herself a pagan, she meant she didn’t believe in the biblical God. What sort of deity, if any, she did believe in is hard to pinpoint."
