Drawers is Drawers - or Pantaloons?

Poor Venus had no underwear
which might make people stand and stare
if 't'weren't for classic chiseled drapes,
so no one's mouth need fall agape.
But what did Dali do forsooth?
He was a most impetuous youth
who made her chest a 'chest of drawers'
with furry knobs ne'er seen before...

What if he'd chiseled pantaloons?
Would history have dubbed him goon,
or would the folks do naught but snicker
at the sight of Venus wearing knickers?

To see the origins of this flight of fancy, pop across to The Mag 157 to visit Tess and Mr Dali in person! But now, here's another version - take your pick!

  1. If he came from our climate poor Venus might have sported Long Johns

  13. Oh! You outdid yourself again! Everyone is having a laugh a poor Venus and her armless burr-ridden state. I like what you did with the image, both of them and I like "furry knobs".

  14. You pose the sort of question that some people take years to answer and then get themselves a doctorate for their pains. Aw, lets just enjoy the joke! Fabulous.
