    Talking Boiled fisheye or the miracle fishing

    As requested by some mate after the other one I could not exempt myself from this political satire vignette.
    I put a little more time for a technicolor version. Imaginary, no reference loose painting. Technically not one of my best, but that was not my purpose anyway ....

    For the few ones that don't know Italian, the dialogue says more or less:
    "Bravo Silvio! You fished a really beautiful mermaid. You used the right bait for sure"
    "Yeah Emilio, but I'm afraid she may be a baby one (fry). I wouldn't be fined by the Coast Guard"

    Poor Silvio! Just defamation and envy ... and a lot of hyprocrisy and weak mixing of sins and crime as if all other people wer saints becoming perverted by him. The peculiar aspect and difference of this trial is that actually no self-defined victim emerged and asked to suit him.

    As for the title, "boiled fisheye", it translates an idiomatic form, we have referred the look of someone that stares to a lady with a watery glance he thinks sexy and intriguing but becoming ridiculous instead ...

    Excellent Caesar, though I now believe you are in for a long prison sentence. You'll have to blame Albert.

    Don't get worried, dear Byron. Just send me a file in a cake in case. Anyway and fortunately I don't live in Lybia, I didn't write the satanic verses, my name is not Julian Assange and I didn't make fun of U.S. government to fear a rendition, so... hopefully I'll survive this satyrical vignette. In the worst of the cases I would ask for asylum to Bob Rowe.

    I don't know, dear Caesar. The long arm of the law is ever reaching out with an ever more distant stretch, with one long finger just itching to reach your collar. Just in case, I'm baking your cake.

    Will do. We'll slip it inside the cake.

    Dear Caesar, this is so comical and well done, but please dont let them take you away, we would miss your wonderful art and humor, but maybe they will let you take your computer and AR with you

    Brilliant Caesar! You should forward this to one of the newspapers in Rome--that is, if you´re feeling venturesome.
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.
