Buggered Bacchus

Skink saw this near Boddington. It’s entitled “Bacchus”, but Skink is right in thinking that Bacchus (or Dionysius to The Greeks) was supposed to be youthful, or even androgynous looking. Not usually represented as a hungover old bastard.

    I assumed that they had used ‘grapes’ as a euphemism for hemorrhoids,
    and this poor old man was suffering terribly with his piles,
    even after having them surgically removed and put in a bucket

    “I have lots of nuts,”
    Bacchus said, “but winter is
    About to frieze me.”

    This is awesome guys, where better to drag your flabby ovarian cyst of a wife and her snaggle gaggle of menopausal friends for a mid-afternoon cheese/compotes platter and nostalgic discussion of the best cassis (rugby talk optional)? Seriously I’m down wid dat! Tuscany ho! Not worst!

    The juxtaposition of this statue with a before-orgy-Bacchus would make an effective gov sponsored anti-binge-drinking advertisement: “Kids, this is what happens to you if you drink too much too often” (substitute photo of self here).
