Walissy Kandinsky Red Spot II
The Scourge of the Staff Room offers another . . .
Leviticus P. Simpleforth Red Spot I
"What have we here, Simpleforth?"
"A picture, sir."
"I can see it's a picture, Simpleforth. What, forgive me for asking, is it a picture of?"
"It's another red spot, sir. I mean . . it's a picture of another red spot."
"Simpleforth, I know I'm getting old and my memory of last week's art class may be growing dim, but did I not ask you to apply yourself armed with canvas and brushes in modo Kandinsky?"
"I thought about that, sir. Honest I did. Then I thought that re-interpreting Red Spots might be a better outlet for my talents. I'm not really into boomerangs and artificial knee caps. Even red ones."
"Your talents, Simpleforth, have so far remained well below your kneecaps. And this bloodshot eyeball isn't doing much to make them more visible. Please explain your . . um . . I hesitate to say . . um . . daub."
"Good one, sir!"
"I thought I implied it wasn't good at all?"
"No sir, I meant your joke was good."
"I'm not in the habit of making jokes. Particularly when viewing . . "
"You said my eyeball wasn't making things more visible. Eyeball. Visible. I thought that was kind of funny. And just now you added 'viewing' "
"You can't waffle your way out of this, Simpleforth. The picture! Explain."
"Not much to explain really, sir. It's the Red Spot."
"The Red Spot?"
"Yes sir. The Great Red Spot on planet Jupiter. It's a hyrogen hurricane. Been blowing for hundreds of years. The winds blow round it at 950 kilometres per hour. Blow anybody's hairpiece off. Sir."
"That's quite enough of that, young man!"
"Sorry sir. Just sort of slipped off. Sorry. Mean slipped out. Out, I meant."
"I'm tempted to open my punishment book, Simpleforth. Disobeying simple instructions as to what to paint. Waffling. Studied insolence. You'll end up painting double yellow lines in the road at his rate."
"Oh sir! I was only . . "
(Art master exits in search of punishment book. Simpleforth calls after him but sotto voce)
"I'll paint double yellow lines round planet Uranus if you like. Look nice that would. Real purty!"
