Pieces of cod

By Ericsamson
A rather wonderful portrayal in JPEG tapestry of Tarquin and Marmaduke Joystick each sporting their new 'gentleman's enhancement garment' recently purchased from the well known purveyor of exotic clothing, Mildred Winters. Tarquin is the one with the horn. (Stop sniggering at the back!) The, perhaps, envious looking observer on the right is difficult to identify but historians think it is most likely to be either Julian or Sandy. Kenneth Horne is just out of shot.

Just made it before Silly Sunday gives way to Moribund Monday. Blessings to all, Rambling Sid Rumpo. Smile

The envious observer to the right has an amazing bird's eye view of the Tarquin's wonderful fillet!

We used to call the gentleman's exotic clothing a codpiece. Where the name comes from the mind boggles.
Looks like those at the back are beating a very hasty retreat and I donít blame em

Are you codding? Should that be coddling? That's no Jock - Strap I hear you say. I'm trying... I see the big yin is blowing his own horn too.

Is this perchance the piece of cod which passeth all understanding referred to by Nigel Molesworth in his 1956 oeuvre?

And I always thought he was referring to school dinners . . . . BlushBlushBlush

And the horse has a rather worrying expression...

It is very rewarding that you have all responded to this with the seriousness it deserves. Yes John, the horse's expression certainly gives us pause for thought; is it possible that the poor creature may feel envy or is it merely derision? As for dear old Molesworth and 'the piece of cod which passeth all understanding' I am a little perplexed given that what we have here are pieces of cod; it is hardly likely that such largesse would be a characteristic of school dinners in 1956. Nonetheless a fascinating observation and one which I shall pursue with appropriate vigour.
Yours, Professor Jocelyn Strappe.

I've always wondered why cod? All sounds a bit of a fishy subject to me.... 🐟😁 A well-netted catch, Graham 👍

Of course, the unanswered mystery that haunts this historical stitch up is, what is Marmaduke going to do with that giant 'feather on a stick' ?. Sandy or Julian probably knows but as neither of them learned to use a laptop, there is no historical record. Smile
