Theme day-EDGES and April Fool to you...

Hey, guess what? The world really IS flat! While helping my mother move here in the US, I came upon this painting (reproduction, actually) entitled "I Told You So!". and thought it was perfect for today's theme day of 'edges'.

So you see, the world really IS flat, no matter what you have heard, and these sailors are headed right over the edge down to....where? Where do you think?

This means that they must have lied about other things as well at school!

Now I don't know WHO to believe! I always thought the world was round but I can clearly see those ships sailing over the EDGE.....

Excellent Bibi!

Perfect, indeed! The quintessential edge for the theme.

The bottom.

Love the image.

Bibi, you have to win the prize for the best use of the word 'edge' - totally brilliant!

Andy said...

Also an excellent post for April Fool's Day.

Nathalie said...

I fully agree with Jilly, this is brilliant !

I've been looking for ways of incorporating an April fool's day prank into today's theme and haven't found anything. Your choice for today is fantastic !

(can you think of what it was like to set off on a sailing expedition with the idea that at any time you could meet the end of the world? It would have been terrifying !)

Great post, I racked my brain for an April Fools Post. Well done!!! Hope April is a fantastic month.

I think that you win the prize for both the April Fool's joke and the scariest edge! I have seen this before and it really does make you think, n'est-ce pas?

Thinking of you and hoping you are well in Seattle.

Bises,

This is the best theme day post I've seen so far! Love that painting! I know some teapot crackpots I'd like to show it to!

Oh, I do love a good water-slide!!!

Interestingly, the verification word is somewhat pre-cognitivie ... ruinsess ... looks like those ships are on a collision course with "ruin-sess" ... perhaps a new title for this piece?

Hi my mother is looking for this painting for a family member and we are having trouble locating a nice sized print of it, didn't know if you could recall where you found it. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!

Hello, Andrew. Sorry not to be able to answer you through email, since your address does not appear. I hope you see this. I did a google search for this painting and found this site: http://www.miraclesart.com/

Good luck!
