Mervyn Peake Appreciation Day

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The Osseous 'orse sat up at once
And clanged his ribs in biblic pride.
I fear I looked at him askance
Though he had nought to hide...

No hide at all... just...

UPDATE: Bonus Trousered Version

Modified for great dignity! by Substance McG., who is not in the thrall of a trouser addiction, and can stop panting any time.

No hide at all, just hoof and bone
A deviant behavior I can't condone
No muscle or tendon, a complete lack of meat
No offal or skin - that thing's incomplete!
With so much of him missing yet he seems to run fine
I'm gonna take this as an apocalyptic sign...

Substance McGravitas said...

Dignity please.

Finding this all quite morksome.

The fascinating thing is that apparently TinyPic can make caps with animated .gifs on them.

I gotta say, that's pretty cool...

Aren't trousers addictive and therefore controlled, Substance?

Substance McGravitas said...

What? YOU THINK I'M PANTING AGAIN?

Also: got $22.99 I can borrow?

I was tempted by the coffee mug with the animated .gif.
Do horse trousers come in any other colour? I will pay extra for Cameron of Erracht tartan.

Smut Clyde said...

And from this chasm, with ceaseless turmoil seething,
As if Substance McG. in fast thick pants were breathing,
A mighty fountain momently was forced

Another Kiwi said...

Mighty fountain! Pony fountain more like

Big Bad Bald Bastard said...

Oh skel'tal horse, how dost thou stride,
While lacking muscles, blood or hide?

Thou dost excel whilst on the course,
O mighty, trousered skelehorse.

There are some laundry jobs too horrible to contemplate.
