Further to my report, last Saturday, of a Facebook Facecloth postage and subsequent comment, here is another. I will not be making a habit of this, but last night’s brief exchange of comments with Elberry is, I think, worth noting here.
I chuckled at a comment I read appended to a postage on the Grauniad’s Comment Is Free site, and so, on Facecloth, noted
A Comment Is Free comment over at The Grauniad : “Groan, and so the Guardian descends still further into being an upmarket version of Black Flag for the under 16s.” I chuckled.
The subsequent dialogue with Elberry went as follows
Elberry : more on the nature of this chuckling please, the sound, duration, effect on passers-by, etc.
Frank Key : Grating and somehow tragic, forty-nine seconds, solicitude, offers of loose change, thumpings.
Elberry : does it excite frenzies, sexual or otherwise?
Frank Key : Only in the raddled hearts of the unseemly
Elberry : is it pure to the pure, if the pure are privy to these terrible eruptions?
Frank Key : Alas, there are tincts
Elberry : would you consider removing these safeguards, so the many- headed rabble may hark to your mirth, and take heart therefrom?
Frank Key : I will consider it, while my head is upon the pillow, and I snooze, imminently
After tippy-tapping which, I retired to bed, rested my head upon the pillow, and snoozed. Alas, I did not after all consider removing any chuckle safeguards.
