DOODLING THE DAY AWAY AGAIN

When I had completed this painting for the Hot Pink and Orange theme for Summer of Colour this week, I decided Juan and Fred deserved one of my doodle doggerel verses, so here it is.
JUAN AND FRED
FLAMBINGO DANCERS EXTRAORDINAIRE
Meet Juan and Fred, Flambingo dancers,
Both renowned as great romancers.
All the way from sunny Spain
- Haughty, proud and very vain.
Adored by all Flambingo lasses
Who flock to join their dancing classes,
Fred and Juan are expert dancers
- Stampers, twirlers, splashers, prancers.
They eye the girls with hot pink flashing glances,
When they perform their
Welly-Booten Stampen-Stompen dances.
Bright plumage marks them out from all the crowd,
They splish and splash, and shout 'Olé' out
very, very loud.
The Welly-Booten Stampen-Stompen dance
Is on in just a little while.
Watch them if you're waterproofed, but me -
I tell you folks, I'm going to run a mile!
This is how Juan and Fred looked in my initial drawing:

You made me laugh with your comment Helena. I'll have a word with Juan and Fred to see if they have room in one of their classes for you!Delete
Love your dancers and wonder where the bingo comes in? BJReplyDelete
Well BJ, you see Juan and Fred had problems deciding what to call their particular style of dancing. It's not Flamingo Dancing, nor is it Flamenco Dancing, so they settled on something quite different ..... and that's where the 'bingo' of Flambingo Dancing comes in. They truly believe it's going to take off and be the next smash hit! Thank you for your comment - it goes to the heart of the matter.ReplyDelete
Hey your birds should totally go out clubbing with my bird... http://all-the-wright-stuff.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/phoenix-from-flame.html They would set the town on fire!ReplyDelete
Juan and Fred are hilarious, yet gorgeous in their colorful plumage.ReplyDelete
So delightful and fun!ReplyDelete
