    Hi Caesar......I found your lost lamb just south on the Via Appia around Ariccia, don't know if you left the gate open or what?
    He's fine, don't worry.....

    Thank You, dear Robyn. I was polluted by too many cultural hints form this place where classical art, monuments, curious traditions, the Pope and quite a lot of other peculiar things are all around. Creativity is a consequent radiative disease you can hardly avoid, I guess.

    Thank You, dear Andrea ... You mean omaggi to ...Voldemort?

    Thank You, dear Steve. I was really worried! That lamb near Ariccia? What a dangerous place and risk it was running! It's where they prepare good porchetta, i.e. the most tasty and typical skewed roasted pig we cook in centre-southern Italy. When I saw the picture I thought it was in Colorado waiting for Roadrunner to arrive ... LOL

    Hahahaha. I laughed out loud when I saw this. You're really getting cartooning under your belt. Wonderful cross-association and jumbling concepts together for the surprise and delight of the viewer.

    It put me in mind of the famous hitch hiking sequence of Claudette Colbert in It Happened One Night. . . a sheep trying to look enticing. Very silly. Good one Caesar. It's the one trick the Popes didn't ever try. . . at least it's not a matter of public record that I've seen.

    I think I remember that movie and that I liked it very much. I just cannot remember of an acting lamb though ....LOL Actually there are really many cross-cultural jokes and reference chaotically entwined together herein, as you say, dear D Akey. Thank You!

    @ Andrea:
    Hahah. By the way, if you want to enter the strange, frightening landscape of the English speaking world's psyche, it's an important idiom so I'll gently correct your funny comment to "in deep sh*t". I know it sounds like 'indeed' should work there, making it sound profound and emphatic. But alas, that's far too mental. This aims for copious reminders direct from an engagement at the other end.

    Perhaps it's thanks to your countryman Dante, identifying one of the circles of Hell as being a river of it. . . though I doubt many who have used the term would give a sh*t who Dante was nor what his pedigree was to have a clue about such fecal punishment. Still, "deep sh*t" has a nice ring to it. . . so to speak, so they embraced the visual. It's just meaning crap so deep it's hard to get out of, and by thunder, it's useful.

    Mouse was sent on holiday for few days, dear Andrea, he cannot hear us ...

    Our idiom, dear D Akey, either from Dante or Shakespeare, has a quite similar expression when someone's in serious trouble, or "we are in deep sh**t", i.e., we say "siamo nella m***da fino al collo", literally "we are in sh**t up to our neck". The word "m***da" is just the same of that famous expression of General Cambronne at Waterloo, apart that he stated it in French instead than Italian. LOL
