The Lobster Thing
which you may recall my mentioning in a previous post has now been explained. Elizabeth Cope, who turns out to have been painting for 41 years, was talking about some paintings in the joint show. One of them featured two of her favourite lobsters. Fortunately the explanation for these was not the Derek and Clive one. It seems that one of her daughters had prepared her a surprise lunch with lobster salad surrounded by lettuce leaves. As she approached the table the daughter pressed a button and the lobster rose and sang. Seems it was a lobster version of the old singing fish. So the joke turned into a bit of a theme. Wish I had seen one of those..
