  1. Hilarious! The guy with the belly has a sword and is choosing to fight with the umbrella. He's either overconfident or not too bright. Or maybe they're fighting over the umbrella?

  5. He must've pulled from his right-side scabbard instead of his left...such a rookie....or else someone played a trick on him. I love your film-making take on this week's picture, Peggy!

  11. Cut! is right, Peggy. Excellent! :) In another second he will be all cut up. If he gives in I am betting he will lose an ear so he won't ever forget being disgraced.

    At the very least his brella will look like a piece of origami.
    Might be pretty, as long as he still has his fingers!
    Have a great week and see you next time!
