Dr nose best

By Toobi_Won
Tarquin seated has had nasal problems and discomfort ever since his trip to Columbia, the broken twigs at his feet lie testament to his forlorn attempts at self medication. Fortunately for Tarquin, a Rhinologist heard of his plight whilst visiting his local vintner, what are the chances? to buy a box on the bench of his favourite premier cru. A cheeky little number that doesn't fizz or bubble if, as is often the case, it get's spilled on concrete when fought over by fellow oenophiles

The image captures the moment when the Rhinoligist is preparing to perform a nasoendoscopy, in the field as it were, whilst his assistant, bearded, rummages in his bag for something herbal to dull Tarquin's pain. I would have stayed to record the proceedings but the sight of snot makes me ill, ever since being called "candles" as a child at school The memory haunts me to this day.Sad
Many thanks to Keith (Dark_lord) for his UA for "End of the ride", PM sent.

Indeed my dear old thing young Gussy has spotted this and the newts are mightily amused. This is a delightfully chucklesome offering and it's a rare thing to see a newt chuckle. I'm delighted Tarquin put in an appearance; I was wondering what happened to him ever since he slipped the surly bonds of fabric which had hitherto kept him imprisoned in a tapestry at Haddon Hall. (The one standing might well be his old chum Marmaduke.) As to your personal sense of discomfiture I am able to sympathise; on a breezy day at the height of the hay fever season I am like a candle in the wind ... seriously ... 'snot funny.
