Maxim of the Week


Even though he'd never won any of his boxing matches, Teddy firmly believed that he would one day be Welter Weight Champion of the World.
Maxim:
I have not yet begun to fight.

  1. A little battered, many a bruise,
    Two of my teeth are in my shoes.
    My eyes are bruised, my knees may knock,
    My brain is addled by the shock.
    My nose is crooked, the septum twirled,
    But what the hell, I can rule the world.

    1. Johanna,
      Oh yes, a frightening scenario, I agree! It used to totally creep me out when I was a little kid at the age of losing my baby teeth. Thank goodness for the compensation from the Tooth Fairy.

  8. What a great face. And I love colors and especially, how you applied the color. Looks like he could use some of The Sagittarian's Vodka jelly!

    1. Stickup,
      I think Teddy's the kind of guy that would put vodka jelly on his burnt toast for breakfast. I'm fairly certain that those colours in his face are the result of "natural" causes and not just applied for effect in his 8x10 glossy promo shot.

  9. Your characters are fun too! Such personalities!

  10. this made me remember this old joke :-)

    A man is walking down the street when he hears a voice, "Pssst you come over here!" He looks round and can see no one but an old mangy greyhound. "yes over here!" Said the greyhound "Look at me I'm tied up here, I should be racing I won 14 races in my carrer you know?" The man thought to himself "Oh my god a talking dog, I have to have it, it will make me rich, tv appearances cabaret bookings" So he goes in search of the owner. He found the owner and said "I'd like to buy your dog, is he for sale??" The owner says "No mate you don't want that old moth eaten thing!" "But I do!" Insisted the man "I'lll give you 1000 pounds for him. "Ok said the owner but I think your making a big mistake!" Handing over the money the man said "Why do you think that?" The man replied "Because that dogs a bloody liar it's never won a race in it's life!"
