The Portrait Of A Bloke Who Knew Dorian Grey
December 7, 2015 11:22am CST
Dear Dorian, When I congratulated you on not looking a day older than when we went to school together twenty years ago, you recommended an unusual beauty treatment to me, namely getting my portrait done by a good friend of yours. That portrait is in my attic, and now, a further twenty years on, I find that it looks exactly the same as the day I bought it, and rather abstract, with my face painted cuboid, and me lying on a badly made bed, surrounded by wildebeest. You remain in porcelain perfection, while I am covered in wrinkles, and losing both hair and teeth. Why pray tell, am I falling apart and going down with arthritis? Yours, Arthur Dorian replied; My dear friend Arthur, It seems you met my artist’s apprentice, Picasso Dali-Emin, who was fresh out of soul-stealing blood red paint. I am terribly sorry. Will you be attending my 205th birthday party on Saturday? D Grey. Arthur Chappell

Dear Arthur, Sell the Picasso and with that kind of money you can be whatever age and look like whatever you want to! I know--I was scammed by Vincent Van Gogh and that's what I did which is why at 80 I look/act/sound 20! Martin The Leap Year Baby!
