Knock knock. Who's there? Amphora.

Amphora* who?
A'm phora pint of Fuller's ESB and a packet of crisps, please.
Here are four allegorical amphoras** with attributes chosen to represent the four inner planets.

These two symbolise Jupiter and Saturn. Spaced at appropriate scale intervals.

Sadly, Uranus seems to be completely buggered.

I don't often have an opportunity to say that.

* Note the lack of "Greek urn" jokes, because Riddled is a classy place.
** Can't be arsed looking up the correct plural.

I am impressed that those sophisticated Europeans offer three types of money in their ATMs.

And by Venus's high heels.

What about Mars along the end being all Ahnold. It is obvious why they should be on urns, so I will not say the reason.
I wonder what buggered Uranus, must have been something quite large?

It's amphorices. Group noun is compendium. You're welcome.

Saturn should have a chair on it.

The best part of blogging is the collegiality.

Mmmm. Could I have a Fuller's IPA please?

(Said in my best collegial accent)

I think that I am just emotionally unprepared for a stoat encased beer.
