Oooh oooh lemon jelly cow handbag fight between Zed and Milady.

Get in there quick if

a) you want some jelly - bring your own bowl

b) you're feeling sufficiently Canadian to peacekeep

I have threatened superpower destruction. I am after all Cow Handbag Queen.

Egad! That's over 60!

Who are all those people in white on the left about 3/4 of the way back (in the middle of the intersection)?

Who are the guys in black with the guitar cases? I thought maybe Blues Brothers.

The yellow and pink clad contortionists in the centre - Twisted Sister or Spandaux Ballet?

How can you people see all this stuff?

Milady and Tatiana share a goldfish?

Blogger Anna said...

Lol, Milady's the one trying to shoot HWIRF, and the goldfish is Tatiana's (no relation) :)

Those guys are the manic Street Preachers.
The guys with Guitar cases? The killers
Behind the Yellow man (also a band) is a picture of a Seal ... Also a singer.
There are two cops walking away in the centre back... The Police.
Iron Mainden .. in the zebra crossing.

Vine: The are growing out of the sewer at the front...

How do I see them? I have a big screen ... :)

Blogger The Wrath of Dawn said...

Aha! I was unaware Milady was trying to shoot HWIRF. I must go read her blog.

I have a big screen too, but have trouble making out what the heck stuff is supposed to be.

The yellow man... is that the person leaning up against the building under the "Shop" sign? And who the heck can tell what the sign to his left is?

What's with the postman at the blue letter box on the left?

I am clearly out of touch.
