Love story

I've been having a slow week and not come up with anything worth posting about, then a friend emailed me this short story by Greek cartoonist Arkas. I love the asburdness of Arkas's cartoons and laughed so much when I read this one, I thought I'd share it with you.

Bird: No point in persevering, we are not a good match. You know we are not a good match.
Hippo: I know, but I love you. Let's at least try one last time.

Bird: We are doomed to fail. It's best to stay friends. Erotically, we will never be a good match.
Hippo: But why not? How can you be so sure it won't work?

Bird: I've already told you!.. Because I am an Aquarius and you are a Virgo!

I didn't see that coming, so I quite enjoyed that :)

Per Stromsjo said...

And I agree with Cheryl!

Incidentally, we do need slow weeks once in a while. I'm having a slow vacation, very much off season at the Swedish beach resort Falsterbo. Peace and calm and lots of great food just for me... ;)

I didn't see it coming, either!

Hi Tinsie! Amazing story; great for a short break... ;)
Meanwhile, Blogtrotter has a Rhapsody in Blue post of one of your islands... ;)) Not many words, just the rhapsody! Enjoy!

Glad to see no one saw it coming - one of the reasons that I love Arkas's cartoons is because you never know what the punch line is going to be :-)

@ Palmtreefanatic: The husband meme is up!

@ Per Stromsjo: Sounds like utter bliss :-)

JM said...

Very funny! :-)

@ Kate: I know! I've never failed to laugh at one of Arkas's cartoons, I don't think it's possible :-)
