Yesterday saw BIIIG TROUBLE at the O.L.D.B.A.G. when, while photographing a bottle of vintage Tadpole Wine, a clumsy, overweight, oafish tourist managed to smash one of our priceless Pong vases (from the Pong-ing dynasty).........What made matters worse was the fact that the troublesome tourist was actually LAUGHING the whole time!.........
If there had been anyone else in the Gallery, he would at least have had the excuse that there was no room to 'get into position for his shot'..........the place, however, was empty (apart from the Goliath Frog living in the vase......which has now lost its home)........
Any information regarding the identity of this man will be greatly appreciated as this incident is being treated as sabotage..........

still, seeing as it's you

A fat guy, while taking a hike,
Got tired and acquired a bike
When a nice girl passed by
He would let out the cry
You can sit on my bar if you like!

I would say so too, patsquire!! She is GREAT!! I do vote for her!!

juneshone

don't encourage me I have a never ending stream of the things that I made for the jigidi group a while back

patsquire

And the sparkling-bright-non-July IS our poet laureate, by dint of her amazzzzzzzing limerick!

Huzzzzzzzah and hurrah a la limericista!

(I'd always heard it was the birds and the bees. Now I realize it's the flowers and the bees! In my pleasures I will gladly be! Thank you lelabug!)

juneshone

A tourist in Old Bonga bonga
Said the tall tales get longer and longer.
Bonga's riddled in mystery
That they tell me is history
And the Tadpole wine's getting stronger

lelabugosi

And now you ask in your heart,
"How shall we distinguish that which is good in pleasure from that which is not good?"
Go to your fields and your gardens, and you shall learn that it is the pleasure of the bee to gather honey of the flower,
But it is also the pleasure of the flower to yield its honey to the bee.
For to the bee a flower is a fountain of life,
And to the flower a bee is a messenger of love,
And to both, bee and flower, the giving and the receiving of pleasure is a need and an ecstasy.

People of Bugosiland, be in your pleasures like the flowers and the bees.

Five busy honey bees were resting in the sun.
The first one said, "Let us have some fun."
The second one said, "Where shall it be?"
The third one said, "In the honey tree."
The fourth one said, "Let's make some honey sweet."
The fifth one said, "With pollen on our feet."
The five little busy bees sang their buzzing tune,
As they worked in the beehive all that afternoon.
Bzzzzzz! Bzzzzzz! Bzzzzzz! Bzzzzzz! Bzzzzzz!

pretty, pretty Tennyson, my favourite

Elfie

Arthur? - or one of the others?

juneshone

All in the blue unclouded weather
Thick-jewell'd shone the saddle-leather,
The helmet and the helmet-feather
Burn'd like one burning flame together,
As he rode down to Camelot.

juneshone

ooh trepanning, can I watch?

Plumpossum

I seem to have contracted an annoying buzzing in my ears.

lelabugosi

......electric......drill........bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz..........

Robbiel

Heh heh David, actually you are right, I forgot them for real!! (Blood pressure ones) I may have to use the electric drill to relieve the pressure tonight!!

Hmmm... Does Bonga Bonga have an official poet laureate? There seem to be several candidates for the position......

patsquire

Gayly bedight,
a gallant knight,
in sunshine and in shadow,
had journeyed long,
singing a song,
in search of (bzz bzzzzz WHERE?).

Get off my bike, you fat lump of lard!.............

juneshone

go look for fat guys on pink bikes, good doggy, look at those lovely juicy bare legs run boy run

patsquire

Are you kidding, Robster, a CD player in Bonga-Bonga?

More likely a hand cranked Victrola with the large speaker trumpet! And Dogdaze sitting there with his head cocked, listening to his master's voice saying over and over, "Go play in the street you mangy mutt."

Robbiel

Yes Tatinha, good idea and while applying the S.A.C.O. on the artifacts and ourselves we can dance ourselves silly to the music called S O C A!! You do have a cd machine there , don't you Lela?

juneshone

it's an ill wind that brings nobody any good

lelabugosi

Maybe some good will come out of this incident, after all.........

Elfie

And it will be considered much older when it looks like an old puzzle - perhaps the first one in the world!! Great idea Tatinha!!

juneshone

some Bugosians could benefit from an application of that stuff

Tatinha

I?ve been organizing your photos so let me fix the vase and everything will be ok. Don?t waste your money sueing tourists - it?s not good for business - or buying another Pong, Ping whatever vase. There?s a great product here called S.A.C.O. para Velharias (Super Artística Cola Original for Old Things) It?ll be perfect again, as new.

Plumpossum

Sorry it wasn't a drawing. I had high hopes of winning.

lelabugosi

Yes, that idea sounds good, raincoat-infusion........we have already banned motorbikes, after granny had an unfortunate accident when she crashed into a statue by Pickleangelo.......
Mr.Many-numbers-with-a-name.......No, they are antique Bonga-Bongan stilts, from the days when our country was all marshland......Stilts were the only way to get about, and as the houses were also on stilts our people could just open their doors and step inside without having to jump off their lofty perches...........

teamac

It seems to me the cause of the incident was when the visitor tried to take a photo of these priceless works of art.
If I might be so bold as to suggest ... Perhaps a ban on the photo taking...they have that restriction in other famous locals like the Cistine Shapel. Let them purchase a post card!

lelabugosi

Well, dancing-pecan, it's that as well, also........
raincoat-infusion.......I see nothing wrong with the floor covering........except the colours may be a little muted, perhaps, maybe, possibly...........
Mr.Shell-shocked........'sloppy' is a very relative term, and it is no relative of mine - yours maybe?.......
L'elangelus is crooked because it has obviously been disturbed by the antics of that 'portly' vandal.......
The Pong vase was not encased because people liked to ping it as it made a pleasant sound.........
The stands are far enough apart for normal sized people.......
Everything was well stuck to the floor with velcro.......
And finally, we are not planning on getting any acts together in the museum, as it is NORMALLY a quiet retreat of repose and leisure........

david06520

Are those objects arrayed on the walls Bonga-Bongan Cricket Bats?

Robbiel

Upon further perusal this O.L.D.B.A.G. museum is quite sloppy. The yellow apparition picture is crooked......the Pong vase should be encased, the stands are too close together and all should be secured to the floor properly. Now I am not defending the porker.......I mean tourist .......but a museum with such price less works of so-called art should get their act together!!

teamac

Poor visitor!!
It is the wild weaving of the floor covering !!
Probably made his head spin Lela!!

lelabugosi

Plumpy-thingy........The vase would have come under 'Oils' as it once held cooking oil for the Pong-ing emperor's fish suppers..........(I suppose you expected me to call it 'a drawing'....hee-hee!).......

jignut

No,no and no....just OLD.

Plumpossum

Was that vase an oil or lithograph or drawing?

Robbiel

I sure "feel" for that perp!!

lelabugosi

Ah, Mr.Le-Squirt.......Juneee has a lovely puzzle for your enjoyment:-
http://www.jigidi.com/puzzle.php?id=CPZD2SJ8

patsquire

This is a case for the Omnipotent Legionnaires Division, Canadian Order of Knights (O.L.D.C.O.K.s), who will automatically be drawn to that delicious rump sticking out and banging into the pedestal on which stood the former Ping-Pong Vase. Once the O.L.D.C.O.K.s are after your *ss, your *ss has had it, or your *ss is grass, or your *ss is theirs! It's another instance of, you can't fight it so you might as well relax and enjoy it!!!

SORRY, PERP, but your *ss's days are numbered!

juneshone

Oh Dear, Bull and China-shop come to mind. Go and sit quietly in the annexe where there is a nice plain Hessian carpet and no frogs for you to frighten

lelabugosi

All I can say is, I'm glad the miscreant left after perpetrating this heinous act of sabotage, before having a chance to do further damage in the adjoining 'Dolls Room' - where we have priceless effigies of the miracle patients cured by Dr.Adonis B. Bugosi (including Desmond Pair - 'Desmondina' - now a respectable member of our community)...........
I would just like to remind your rotundness, that the graceful figure turning away from this outrage hapens to be L'elangelus, painted in the 16th. century by Leonardo DaBugosi jr.sr..............

Robbiel

Is it just a coincidence that the face of that hideous yellow creature with wings has it's face turned away from the "accident" in progress??!!
There seems to be some support for that guy from the ladies...........stacker/lady??........nice of you not to mention his name!!

chickiemama

LOLLLLLLLLLL

gemstone

The Mounties ALWAYS get their man! (Run, Bubba, run!)

Surreal_Heidi

I would NEVER divulge the name of that tourist, since he appreciates Cowries so much..... and sea shells in general.

Surreal_Heidi

Anything that smiling tourist could do to the ''art'' in the O.L.D.B.A.G. could only be an improvement. I wish he had accidentally started a fire in there. The art world would have been mighty appreciative.

stacker

This tourist seems to have a very familiar face!! Could it be? No it couldn,t be!! Yes I think it is!! But far be it from me to mention a certain Robbie's name--- but there is indeed a striking resemblance!!

Robbiel

Lela this is diabolical, despicable and contemptible without doubt!! I am so glad the wine is still in place and the frog will find another container..........or be eaten!!! That floor is WAY OUT MAN!!! Well that is all I can offer, hope you find your man............call the Mounties!!! I'm sure gem can help you with that!!
