Peter's Very Bad Day

By mrswoolybill
A week or so I uploaded Peter Rabbit's Grand Day Out , a seemingly innocent little picture of a car mascot.
But EPZ members weren't born yesterday - as the eagle-eyed among you spotted, that was no carrot in his mouth. Peter Rabbit was smoking a hookah!
This is alarming behaviour in a young rabbit. I have to report that Peter woke up the next day with a very bad headache, a troubled conscience and no clear recollection of his visit to Seaburn Historic Vehicle Display. His mother has grounded him this weekend as a lesson.
This upload is posted as a salutary warning to you all as to the dangers of over-indulgence.
I shall now go and write out 'I am a very silly girl and must try to grow up' one hundred times.
Have a good weekend, and thanks for looking.

Lol are you going to upload a photo of the 100 lines Moira (without manipulation)? Looks as though Peter was having a whale of a time, well that's what you get from giving psychotropic drugs to wabbits!!!

Nice Manipulation.

Been to visit the caterpillar, fell down the rabbit hole on his way to the car show, He invited Moira to come along, but her camera would not fit into the rabbit hole-- so she just snapped away--

However you-all do the manipulations, I think they are fantastic!

One hundred lines,that sounds interesting Moira.I think you have done that with this image.Plenty lines and they are all curved.Good bit of work here and you have even blurry people too.Or perhaps I should stop ''smoking''

I remember the original and I think I remember seeing him bleary eyed then. I bet his Mum was HOPPING mad. So this is what happens to you. I have just had such a laugh at this.
Great manipulation Moira. Thanks for brightening my day.

His head is certainly in a spin. Your narrative is a BUNdle of laughs. I HOPe he recovers soon. Or is there more to the TAIL?

Are you a teacher, Moira? I think you must be.
Peter Rabit seems to have had a very bad day...

Quite a departure from your norm Moira but nevertheless a very striking image well thought out and produced. As ever enjoyed the accompanying narrative.

Ha Ha! Good work. Reminds me of Dillon from Magic Roundabout; he was always slightly space out.
