Why are you reporting this puzzle?

Today, we pay another visit to the Oils, Lithographs, & Drawings section of the Bugosi Art Gallery (O.L.D.B.A.G.), this time to view the only known portrait of the beautiful damsel known as 'Mad' Mathilda Bugosi, seen here performing her party piece - 'balancing a dead fish on the head of a dog'.......
It is recorded that Mathilda was renowned for her gift of reviving dead fish, simply by placing them
on the head of her pet dog, 'Hookie'........During the great Bonga-Bonga Fish Shortage of 1797, thousands of people flocked to her with their dead fish, and it was common to hear the phrase "Put da fishie on da hookie" to raise the spirits in times of despair......
Mathilda went on to open the first fish 'n chip shoppe in Bonga-Bonga - it also marked the first
appearance of the sign "No dogs allowed" as that would have been bad for business,,,,,,
She requested to be buried at sea, and now rests in the Pond Of Happiness at the Bugosi National
Park.......

Yes, precious-pebble.......and with dogs, also, as well......

gemstone

I bet psquirt could tell us of a number of people who have "slept with the fishes" though.

lelabugosi

Devil-thingy.........Bonga-Bongan scientists are currently working on the theory of the existence of a "Giant pond in the sky" i.e. fish heaven, and one or two of them - well, two of them (uncle Adonis and unclebluebottle) actually place it in the constellation pisces........of course, we may never really know, as fish don't talk......

Demonabolis

So, dogs can bring fishes back from the dead? Do they tell of tales of long toilet flushing tunnels with bright lights at the end? No, of course not. They don't remember that long. The world will never know of the fish heaven.

juneshone

the fox that killed the chickens on our goat field came for one a night, maybe he was the one with the brain. We didn't own the chickens and the man who did own them never locked them up properly.

Elfie

Foxes, wolves, members of the marten family and others go crazy - it's something in their instincts, but cats are different, they ENJOY it! You are SO right Pat!! We had two dogs, one of them a great-grand child from and Alaskan wolf - they killed 28 chickens during a night. They didn't eat ANY of them, but piled them neatly and looked as if they had done us a MAJOR favour!!

patsquire

And a fox in a henhouse will kill 50 chickens and then carry one off to eat.

pdevredis

Anyone who thinks man is the only animal who kills for the fun of it hasn't been around the same cats that I have..... Just sayin'..... :-)))

patsquire

Happy Veterans Day, everybody!

patsquire

Hello.

Surreal_Heidi

Who was the mouse, lela? Topo Gigio or Mickey?

Elfie

Silly mouse to take a nap there!! I'm sure it needed some catastrophe aid!! Guess nobody thought about that.....

lelabugosi

Mice are extremely dangerous.......My great-great-uncle Peregrine Bugosi tripped over a mouse, fell down the stairs, and broke his neck........I don't know if the mouse got any pleasure from that.......

Surreal_Heidi

Very wise observation, Hanne. People are the only animal that kills for the fun of it, except animals that people train to kill for sport. No animal is more dangerous than man.

Plumpossum

Cogent observations, Hanne.

Elfie

I agree totally. There are a lot of animals that shouldn't be made pets, because they don't understand it and we don't understand them. But since I touched a snake and found out how soft and warm it was I've not been afraid of them and when I see some in nature I feel a bit honoured because they are so shy and really don't want YOU!! But P-squire, I think that if I had them around as you had I would do what you did.

June - I don't think it's a fair question, they were here before us and besides what's to like with US and actually what are WE for??

100% agree S.H.. Snakes are great doing what they were "created" to do. I'm not at all afraid of them but I agree keeping them as pets is not a good idea. Great job and thanks for working for the betterment of the horses Heidi!

Surreal_Heidi

Snakes are phenomenal rodent control, but I don't think they should be kept as pets in small cages. These people were driving around with a 9 to 10 ft. long boa constrictor loose in their pickup truck. And they literally stunk of snake.

juneshone

what's to like? What are they for?

patsquire

Dontcha go tossin' no snake in my direction! Ugh! Yuck! The only good snake is a dead snake, at least while I'm watchin' th'action. Found 8 snakes in my yard during my 7 years in south Florida. Mowed one into a dozen wiggly pieces, shot 6 with BB guns, and one I missed and he got away. But he fled to the other side of the canal, so I'm hoping he never came back. Never saw him again, anyway. DON'T LIKE SNAKES!

juneshone

what do you want?

MasterHenry

Hello girls.......and Ms.not-so-surreal!........Hee-Hee!

juneshone

here's one,Catch!

lelabugosi

SAVE THE SNAKES!!.................

juneshone

Horse Worshippers, how very Celtic.

gemstone

Yes...you go girl!!!

Yay Heidi! You go gurl! Great job rescuing those snakes from those horse worshipers!

Surreal_Heidi

Back from my latest trip to rescue 2 horses from some snake worshippers. Or something like that. We spent 26 hours on the road with my motor home and a horse trailer. Mission accomplished!

belaminx

With all that steam jetting out from Mathilda's ears, no wonder this work is considered to be hot property, perhaps we should be questioning M'sieur PSquash's alibi a little more n'est-ce pas?

patsquire

When I lived in Trinidad, Colorado in 1965-66 we had a pretty little white church on the other end of our block. The 4-Square Gospel Church, Holy Rollers. Those folks rocked the whole neighborhood through their open windows, Sundays and one evening a week. They may have had access to the same kind of communion wafers, because when they got to clapping and singing it was glorious, purely glorious.

HALLELUJAH indeed gawldarn!

juneshone

OK well don't invite ChurchLady and it might just be a two-day event. She can go compare notes with the Sista I think they will have a lot in common

lelabugosi

Thanks, thousands-of-cakes.......I have passed through there now......
Well, this idea of the wafers sounds good.......food, taddywine, a sing-song........and it could go on all day and night.....and through the next day....and the next......and......

cakes1947

Lela ~ This is made especially for you:

http://www.jigidi.com/puzzle.php?id=02HJM5A8

juneshone

Noon eh, time for another wafer and a dash of the taddywine to wash it down...........I like the Baptist version of things best where the Gawldarns and I can get a good sing song going

HALLELUJAH!!! Past the wafers Sister Ineeda. Can I get an amen!!!

Of course squirt. I knew you were working FOR Eli Lilly. I just wasn't sure if you were sure who you were REALLY working for. Spy work can be VERY complicated. I myself was actually a double spy working FOR Eli Lilly trying to uncover who the REAL spy was. All I can say is Sister Ineeda was having TROUBLE keeping the congregation AWAKE during midnight mass so she EMPLOYED an UNKNOWN operative to steal the necessary INGREDIENTS from the plant in order to turn the COMMUNION wafers into amphetamines. We KNEW this had been accomplished when we noticed the SERVICES were still going strong almost till noon.

Thank you Sir Wainthorpe. You're looking as............Bugosi as ever!

patsquire

Toes, lelabug? No. Nose. They stomped on my toes, or tootsies, too.

Right Hotpants, that's why I do undercover work FOR them, not AGAINST them. You must have been crazy, trying to take them on. Eli Lilly RULES! Of course, you called yourself an "industrial spy" so you may only have been trying to steal formulas or manufacturing methods. Not an "environmentalist spy" who might stand every chance of disappearing into a vat of (??something??) and eventually coming out in thousands of doses of laxative! Eeeeewwwwww!

Sir_Wainthorpe_Bugosi

Oh!.....And HELLOOO, Miss Also-Aswell!...............You're looking as glamorous as always!

Sir_Wainthorpe_Bugosi

Helloo granny!
I remember that tune, also as well.......I believe it was sung by the Indian mutineers, and it went something like "Pass that hookah, that hooky hooky hookah, pass that hookah, before we all pass out"........but the tune was fa mi sol fa fa mi sol fa fa mi sol si do...........

sweetlittleoldgranny

Hellooee everybodeeee!....
I remember that beautiful melody from somewhere......hold on, I'll ask Winstanley Wainthorpe......

Junee isn't that amazing, we used to sit on the banks of the Ganges making smores and singing 'Put Da Vishnu On Da Hookah' to the tune of mi fa sol fa mi fa sol fa mi fa sol do si. Tis a small world we live in.
Squirt I was an industrial spy in an 'Eli Lilly' plant for weeks. Be warned 'Eli Lilly' is not to be trifled with!

Psquirt I'm certainly glad that you remain safe to this point. I'm not really sure why....oh yeah.....please stay safe until you can remember if it was Com Truise or Tron Javolta who was carrying the 'goods'........Just wondering.

Elfie

Who shall have the fishie on the little dishie who shall have the fishie when the boat comes in! (And then) Dance to your Daddy etc!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utkMQJeiK50

lelabugosi

Well, it would seem this popular phrase, turned into song, went from Bonga-Bonga to the whole world!......

juneshone

reminds me of a little ditty we used to sing on the banks of the river Tyne - put da fishie on the da hookie when the boat comes in. dance to your Daddy sing to your Mammy, dance to your Daddy to your Mammy sing - Oh the memories of junkets in the sunshine.

lelabugosi

All together now........

Since I reed ,""put da fishie on da hookie"" , I cannot stop singing ! It is not hindu at all , this singing twin pair has just stolen it .It is Irish with a Little bit Flemish from a fishermann ! I note here the notes , so we can sing alltogether . The rythm is noted ---for long and . for short

put da fis hie on da hoo kie

mi fa sol fa mi fa sol fa mi fa sol do si

lelabugosi

Mr.Le-Squirt........are you typing with your toes?............(just wonderin')...............

patsquire

Oooooohhhhh........grrrrrroooaaaannnnnn.......can.....barely.......move. Got .... caught ..... by ...... the ...... Scien - - - Scien - - - Scientologists ...... on...a...mission...for... Eli Lilly drug company! Found ... evidence ... of ... a ... MAJOR ... scandal. But ... I ... can't ... remember now. Was ... it ... Trohn Javolta ... or Com Truise? One of them has a huge supply of psychotropic medications - - - drugs! It looks like he's the supplier to the entire upper elite of the Scientologists. Turns out Eli Lilly is right, and the big "Eli Lilly Is Evil" campaign is just a cover to conceal the truth! They're all HOOKED!!!

But grooooaaaannnnnnnn, they beat me up something awful, stomped on my hands so I can barely move my fingers. Had to crawl all night just to get into the woods where they couldn't find me. Don't know how I'm going to solve puzzles. Groan.

lelabugosi

That is a beautiful, well-formed doggie........it's just that people can't stop admiring its elegantly elongated ears............

Elfie

It MUST be, Pat, or perhaps he's going to be......

pdevredis

http://www.jigidi.com/puzzle.php?id=76P5NOVM

Is this your doggie, Lela, or does he just have the same complaint that you do?........

lelabugosi

thousands-of-cakes.....ummm....yes....probably......possibly.....could be.......
raincoat-infusion......hotpants has remembered correctly, it was indeed that very melodical melody 'Put Da Vishnu On Da Hookah' sung by Amos 'n Andy, the famous half-cousin-twins from Calcutta......

teamac you're probably thinking of that old Hindu song 'Put Da Vishnu On Da Hookah.

teamac

Wasn't "Put da fishie on da hookie" made into song? Sounds so familiar...if not, it should be...such a cute phrase. I like it :^)

cakes1947

Another beauty of the Bugosi family!! Is that colored steam & things with wings coming out of her ears?!?!?! Love dress she's wearing!! Nice puppy!! Thanks lela!! :)))))))
(time, 1:18)

lelabugosi

Hookie retired, and went to live out her old age in the Bugosi Aquarium of Tropical Sardines (B.A.T.S.)......

Mr. J.C. if Mad Mathilda breaks the surface again we'll put her in the 'New And Improved' dunking chair on the 'reinforced' north bank of the tadpole pond! What ever happened to 'Hookie'?

lelabugosi

You are right, Mr.Christmas-Carroll.......the mysterious mystery is solved!......
Hanne-with-pipe.......I think the safest thing is to throw a thousand red herrings on top of her......that should also please her spirit......

Elfie

Try with a red herring - might be great fun, really!!

lelabugosi

Tatty-the-writer...........Yes, cats were allowed to play with the fish.......
Juneee.......Tsk, tsk........as I said, all the fish were already well-deaded, and without any dogs they stayed well-deaded...............

juneshone

I guess she got her dog to revive stinking old fish so that when she fried them they were nice and fresh, we have a similar fish shop in out village only their dog doesn't seem to be doing it right

Tatinha

And about cats? Were they allowed into fish'n chip shoppe? Such great fun....

lelabugosi

Heidi-of-the-stuffed-horse...............Bugosi blood has remained pure during all that time.....
Tom-Minus.............all the fish in the fish 'n chip shoppe were already well-deaded and not wriggling at all.........

ThomasCat

Bonga-Bonga has such bizarre traditions...first they use that poor dog to revive all their dead fish and then 'Mad' Mathilda takes the fish to the fish 'n chip shoppe and kills them....

Surreal_Heidi

This picture is PROOF POSITIVE that inbreeding has been practiced among the Bugosi's since time immemorial! Or at least for the past several centuries. Even Kentucky and West Virginia haven't practiced inbreeding that long.
