Michael Edwards




Covid’s struck all of a sudden

The butcher hasn’t any mutton

Life’s in flux

The whole world sucks

It's time to hit the fuck-it button

    Situation well framed in the picture, Michael.
    Did you settle for baked beans on toast?

    • Michael Edwards

      Settled for mince and chick pea curry Burmese style.

      NO MUTTON!!! What the hell is happening to this world!!

      Can I have that pint in the artwork please Michael?


      • Michael Edwards

        Sure can and the barrel's full.

        • Doggerel Dave

          You blokes - if you aren't careful you'll be off to a meeting: "My name is Andy and I haven't found another pint in Michael's picture for three days" ( maybe he's keeping them for himself in case there's a shortage).

          Good write and pic M.
          Is Miss B. mutton dressed up as lamb?!

          • Michael Edwards

            No - snail dressed as lobster - in pink of course.

            I always thought goat meat was a decent substitute,
            fun artwork as well Michael,
            world all at sea: topsy-turvy

            • Michael Edwards

              Do you know - I've never tred goat but willing to give it a go. Tried most other things and certainly not averse to offal.

              Great painting for a “Seafood Restaurant”
              Looked all over cannot find that darn button.

              • Michael Edwards

                It's in a place I daren't mention on a public site, 😊

              • FredPeyer

                Awesome painting Michael and just to let you know I've been holding down that button for months now.

                • Michael Edwards

                  With a bit of duck tape over the button you can take a break. this weeks wacky tip.

                  Once again, in both art forms, you have esquisitely portrayed a global quandary

                  • Michael Edwards

                    Yes - where is that darn button? It's behind you...!

                  • Sam Wolf

                    yes such are the times...

                    • Michael Edwards

                      Indeed - time to use the index finger.
