Yes, sweetlittleoldgranny has solved the riddle of the sphinx!........The enigmatically mysterious
(or mysteriously enigmatic) figure represents Dr./Uncle Adonis B.Bugosi. (well, the front half at least) who is himself mysteriously enigmatic..........
Which proves, once and for all, beyond any reasonable doubt, that the ancient Egyptians were
pure-blooded BUGOSIS!......
(The search for the sisters continues)......

no.6-at-the-racetrack.......granny is still on her travels....I think!......

monza006

Is there news on the fate of SLOG yet?

lelabugosi

Yes, Plumpy-one.........The ancient Egyptians were full of pride, and always removed their glasses when modelling........As a true-blooded Bugosi, the model for the Adonisphinx threw pride out of the window, and appeared in all his glory........

Plumpossum

This must be the only ancient Egyptian sculpture wearing glasses.

lelabugosi

Always glad to teach history, cakes!..............

Another fun puzzle in your continuing saga!! Thanks Lela!! :)))

lelabugosi

Juneee....Uncle/doctor Adonis will have one or two, or maybe even three, words with the boy........
precious-pebble....please try and behave, or the giggling black-flying-thing will return.......

gemstone

Was that annals or anals?

juneshone

I guess one sphinx looks the same as another to those of us who don't understand the difference between fine art and pornography. Never thought the boy would be thus described and why are all of the church ladies stifling sniggers in church while appreciating 'fine art'? Tell you what Madame the ones i hold in my possession are not fine at all, so you had better divvi up and give KBoy his share.

lelabugosi

Many thanks, Mr.numerous-numberful-numerals for that historically historical poetry-thingy.......there must be so many references to the Adonisphinx in the annals of whatever, just waiting to be rediscovered by an antiquarian willing to delve deep into the mystery and 'get his hands dirty'.....so to speak.......and so I have spoken......
As for you, curtain-pooper - be careful that nobody flushes you down the toilet........jus'sayin'.......

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: A vast enigma made of stone
Stands in the desert. Near it, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered image lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Adonisphinx, Thing of Thingies:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair already!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

lelabugosi

Lady-of-the-temple.......you are corrupting our innocent youth!.....Hmmmmmphhhhhh!.....
Yes, Tom-minus......The confusion is arising from that lump of cement at the other end of Egypt, known as the Spinx-Sphinx, or the Sphinx-without-a-nose........it is a blatant copy of this great monument we see before (but not behind) us, and as such has no mystical (or musical) significance whatsoever......

wicca

Tee hee......TCat said "bottom"

ThomasCat

As usual, Hanne sees everything so clearly...she hits the head right on the nail....we are dealing with the Adonisphinx....the Sphinx Sphinx is over on the other side of Egypt and who cares whether it has a rear end or not. As with any archaelogical find, you have to look at both sides!! The backside of the Adonisphinx must hold many clues as well as other things and we need to get to the bottom of this.

Church_Lady

Juneee,.....obviously you don't know the difference between fine art and pornography! Hmmmmph!

Elfie

Yes Juneee, but that's the Sphinx - it's not the Adonisphinx!! There might be a huuuuge difference!!

juneshone

little note for Kaleidoboy, those pictures are notorious. they were passed around in church folded into hymn books, for when the sermon became boring. Madame, for that is indeed what she is, says they sell like hot cakes. Here is another life lesson for you boy, go tell her you want 30% cut for being the sitter or else I will be forced to release some very unchurchgoingladylike pictures that I have collected. Awaiting just such an opportunity of course.

lelabugosi

Ooooh!....I don't know what came over me!.....
Well, my spirit has spoken and made everything perfectly clear.......so now we know exactly what is happening.......sort of........I wonder what he was rambling on about?.......
Thank you all for sharing your thoughts.......however, it is not for us to penetrate the sacred mystery of the Adonisphinx' backside.........it must remain an enigma.......
Juneee-was-shining.......I am glad you explained that......

juneshone

there are many pictures to Google of the backside of the Sphinx. It looks like a cross between a turtle and a phallic symbol

Elfie

Honorouble MrPogle! Thanks so very much for enligthening all of us - or those who understand your words - about whatever, all times, Isis and Osiris and SLOG. It's a huuuuge consolation to know that nothing can harm the sweet elderly lady but it's a pity that we can't see the backside of the sphinx!! You couldn't fix it somehow - just in deepest silence??

Tatinha

The fourth picture in the link bellow is the back of Sphinx:

Stardust, grain of sand, infinite mistery of the eternal life (in 50 years the science will be there). Reaching the enlightment through join Bugosiland fellows.

ThomasCat

Psquirt this is no time to putting in one of your advertisements...I'm not sure they are even legal....and Juneee any information you get regarding age limit should definitely not be passed on to your "friend"....but more to the point....with whom or who with is granny communicating???is there another post card that we have overlooked??

MrPogle

......(bleeeep),,,,,,,,,Hello......hello?.........Lela's Eternal Spirit here........connecting with Bugosiland.........is this microphone working?...............HELLOOEE.........(bleeeep).......Ah yes.......
Dear followers of Bugosiland, I have appeared before you to deliver a message from beyond the beyond........Sweetlittleoldgranny cannot be harmed, because she is part of the ETERNAL BUGOSI......
The Bugosis are as old as the stars, and have been given nourishment through YOUR MINDS (and plenty of Tadpole Wine).......therefore they shall have EVERLASTING LIFE (sort of)........(bleep)........
Granny was present at the birth of the Sphinxadonis, and will be present at the end of days.....WHICH WILL NEVER HAPPEN!......(ping).......For all you experience is but a grain of reality on a sun-kissed beach of tropical illusion.........
Isis and Osiris are present in the sphinxadonis, the backside of which SHALL NEVER BE REVEALED!.....(beep)....(tinkle).......
And now I must take my leave....though going NOWHERE.........Believe in my words, Bugosiites, for they hold the mystery of all eternity......(BLEEEEEEEEP)................

Elfie

I the mystery solved or isn't it?? Is SLOG in danger or isn't she?? We need to know - where's the reporter??

juneshone

tirra lirra by the river

juneshone

is there an upper age limit? Just asking for a friend

patsquire

And don't forget, GENTLEMEN of Bugosiland, you are NOT invited to call my special toll-free number 1-800-555-getlucky. It is for LADIES ONLY. Well, and WOMEN. Actually, also any HOT YOUNG THINGS of the female gender who are of LEGAL AGE, which varies from state to state, so please consult a reliable attorney in your local jurisdiction, heh-heh. Heh-heh. Heh-heh-heh. I know quite a fair number of them across our magnificent commonwealths, states and territories who would be delighted to answer all questions about age of consent of cute, lovely, nubile young ladies, heh-heh. Indeed I can just imagine............. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Er, ahem, yes. Well. Enough of that.

gemstone

That sounds like a cry of anguish, mr. numerally enhanced. Are you in pain? Missing SLOG? Or just plain lonely? The Church Lady will probably be right over!

david06520

SLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOG

belaminx

IF Sweet li'l ole Gran bathed Dr Adonis as a baby - and IF the sphinx represents Dr Adonis, then SLOG is older than the sphinx and has been surviving for a VERY LOOOOOOOOOOOONG time which suggests that she is VERY good at surviving n'est ce pas?

kaleidoboy

Well, she was very nice to me.........she insisted on washing my costume, and lit the fire so that I wouldn't catch cold........when she was taking photographs of me.......for her 'private' album......

gemstone

May I take this moment to remind everybody that CHURCHLADY is NO lady!

david06520

(sometimes she corrals Bustin Jieber instead)

ThomasCat

Well then I think we are in deep doo doo. If psquirt is to be believed (I know this is hard for some of you) SLOGranny is in great danger with thugs lurking to fire guns and sling knives at her hapless body (I hope she has one of her special t-shirts on). And who are we looking to for help in solving the mystery????? Churchlady who seems only to have one mission in life....corral Kaleidoboy in a corner and tell him he's special. We are definitely off the rails.

david06520

'Tis the fairy
Lady of
Shalllootttttt...

lelabugosi

Oh dear.......I fear Mr.numerical-numerals is reverting back to his old ways........Maybe, possibly, the good doctor can reverse the reversal.....

david06520

patsquire

Yep, she's seen more backsides than your a-ver-age bear!

lelabugosi

........AKA, CHURCHLADY!!!..............

ThomasCat

Gott in himmel....who is LOTT??????

lelabugosi

Of course there is ONE PERSON who could positively or negatively identify the identity of the mysterious backside.......that person is.............LADY-OF-THE-TEMPLE!!!................

patsquire

Then hope springs eternal in my tortured breast, but I wait with bated breath for confirmation of her bonny fate. I wring my hands in anguish until then..........

lelabugosi

Fear not, Mr.Le-Squirt........Granny will never be silenced, just as she will never be out of date........for she is IMPERISHABLE, and therefore we shall NEVER see the last of her!........

patsquire

Hello speed demon. Tore yourself away from the race track long enough to visit Bugosiland, huh? Nice to see you again. You may be just in time to join in the mourning for SLOGranny, if she has met her fate, or to rejoice if we learn she has somehow survived her foolhardy announcement.........

monza006

What a spectacle.... a real sight for sore eyes... very magnificantly illuminating!!!

patsquire

OHHHHHH.......

NOOOOOO!

Granny has made the MOST CLASSIC OF ALL BLUNDERS! She has DISCOVERED an ancient SECRET, and she has ANNOUNCED HER DISCOVERY, but she has KEPT THE SECRET TO HERSELF until later, sometime when she no doubt prolly PLANS TO REVEAL IT but . . . . by then . . . .it'll be TOO LATE!!! The keepers of the ancient secret will have FOUND HER and SILENCED HER FOREVER!!!

What, doesn't she read crime novels? Watch TV? Go to the movies? Is she STUPID???

You don't TELL THE WORLD that you've discovered the IDENTITY OF THE SPHINX, and then NOT SAY WHO IT IS!!! It's an open invitation to assassins. She might as well just get drunk, leave her door wide open, lay a sharp knife on the bedstand and PASS OUT COLD!!!

Poor, dumb SweetLittleOldGranny, I fear we've seen the last of her! OY!

(((Sure, sure, lelabug ASSUMES she means Dr./Uncle Adonis B.Bugosi, but does it SAY THAT in her note, her message, her post card? No it DOES NOT! Maybe it's somebody else ........ maybe it's Benjamin Franklin ........ maybe it's my sister's nephew Looie ....... maybe it's Koris Barloff Jr., Jr., which would prove it's NOT the Bugosis but the BARLOFFS who are the very foundation all of modern civilization!!!)))

Elfie

Impressing really - oh my!! TomKitty, I would like to see the backside too!!

Tatinha

I heard that the sphinx (lion paws and body/naja-adonis shapped head) was built thousand years ago to scare people away. I was scared after doing the puzzle.

Surreal_Heidi

When did the Sphinx get so homely?

david06520

It's a riddle
in
deed

lelabugosi

But....but....the the Adonisphinx cannot lose its nose, for it is eternal!..........

gemstone

Popcorn is good. But meds aren't necessary as "it's as plain as the nose on your face"!!! The British shot off the nose of the sphinx and yet there it is...fully restored...it must have grown back/longer...just like Pinocchio's! As psquirt used to say, "I rest my case."

lelabugosi

Granny says that she won't climb the Sphinx as she believes the spirit would be offended, but she has returned to take a longer look at the backside, though I fear the mysterious mystery will never be fully penetrated......
precious-pebble.........I believe it is time for your meds.......or possibly, maybe your popcorn......

david06520

gemstone

The Sphinx must be related more to Pinocchio than the Bugosi clan!

ThomasCat

Well then the mystery of the mysterious back side shall remain a mystery.

twoclubs

Dr./Uncle does seem to wear that mysterious smile known to latecomers as a LonaMisaMouth. Well, I for one (or two as my case may be) am happy to know SlowGran is getting about. Perhaps she shall hoist the flag of Bugosiland atop Uncle's pate? Now that would be lovely and prove Granny's agility all at once.

lelabugosi

Granny tells me that the backside does not belong to Dr./Uncle......and she should know, as she bathed him when he was a baby Adonis..........

ThomasCat

I do hope S.L.O.G. is able to get a clear photo of the back side...so to speak...That will, of course, be the true test as to whether it is Dr./Uncle or not.

lelabugosi

.......which also means that the ancient Egyptians were in possession of the secret, occult, not-widely-known knowledge relating to Tadpole Wine!.................

stacker

Perhaps he's aged soooo well because of the elixir of life--TADPOLE wine!!!

lelabugosi

You're welcome, gerd-thingy-with numbers........Always a pleasure to help with people's education!.....

many thanks for this great fun

lelabugosi

Well, piler-upper, I was assuming that all this happened in a past life.......however, maybe I should check with him about his age.......

stacker

I hadn't realized that Uncle Adonis was THAT old! He certainly has stood up well to the test of time!
