Are you being rude about poor Andrew's ears???!
Sx

Pat said...

Scarlet: good one - but no.

rashbre said...

I can spot the joins. It all seems very subterranean to me.

Pat said...

Rashbre: I think I see what you mean but not quite the answer I was looking for.

Well I don't know any of the people or what elephant but cute TV !

cheers, parsnip

Chef Files said...

Sweet Mary and Joseph, elephants inside a house is considered by many to bring bad luck!

I cannae look.....

Pat said...

Parsnip: not to worry - I could be the only one who sees it:)

Eryl said...

Is it... no. I have no idea.

Pat said...

Eryl: just goes to show how one man's elephant is another man's wall paper. If you see what I mean.

Chef: well thankfully it's not my room. Nor yours.

Is it that wire poking out of the sofa?

About Last Weekend said...

Ears, papers, join,s shining line at his head??? Do tell, now its driving me crazy!

Pat said...

ALW: OK!
Although I find him quite annoying I usually watch the Andrew Marr show whilst having breakfast in bed. He has some interesting guests and it's Sunday.
Suddenly - 2 weeks ago - this monstrous elephant I.T.R. appeared.
I was sure there would be a public outcry and it would be removed FORTHWITH. But no! As far as I can see no-one else has noticed it.
It's that MONSTROUS scarlet poster upstaging one of our greatest playwrights - or whoever happens to be sitting opposite the blessed Andrew, thus becoming the focus of attention, to inform you that THIS IS THE ANDREW MARR SHOW.
seriously I would demand my licence fee back but I don't think we pay one.
I can't believe no-one else seems to care!

AAAh! I'm glad you explained this Pat...I had no idea what you were talking about, at all! We don't get that show here---and if we did, I still might not have seen the elephant you were talking about....
Sometimes there are such distracting things on these "talk" shows---like moving images behind the people talking which don't seem to have anything to do with the people OR what they are talking about---it's just something moving, as if we need to have that...! OY!

Wendy Ascham said...

I must admit you have me baffled Pat; unless you mean the way the man on the left is holding his hands?

Pat said...

Naomi: sorry to baffle you. it was still there again this morning. Incredible!

Wendy: bafflement all round - sorry:) See my comment above you an Naomi where I hope all comes clear.

rosneath said...

red elephants? I am seriously worried about you, Pat. You need a holiday!

Keith said...

Tut, tut, Pat, have you been at the gin bottle again?

This elephant wouldn't happen to be pink and wearing a funny clowns hat would it?

Pat said...

Rosneath: dam right! Off on Friday.

Keith: never touch it:)


Wendy: see solution next but one above your comment. I in turn have been getting my Wendys muddled.

John: no - see comment from me two below yours.

rashbre said...

Ahah - Now I understand what is marring the view.

Because it's a still it was difficult to realise that this is how it looks all the way through the show.

Then I looked again in
High Definition...

Pat said...

Rshbre: at last:)

GYPSYWOMAN said...

the crimson elephant...a good title for a short story or little poem, but certainly not to be an accessory to a sofa!

Hi Pat

I have been trying to email you, but they keep getting send back.

Thanks for the comments on my blog, but I am no longer in control of it. Long story.

I will let you know if I start again. I shall still be reading yours.

Thanks for all the comments over the years.

Mickle in NZ said...

So Mr Marr cannot remember his surname???

it looks bad enough that he is using a "Parkinson" style wheeled chair - with none of the understated style, classy chair colour or wheel skills!!!

Sending care, love and full-on sympathy!

Pat said...

Gypsy: it is a good title:)

LOM: sorry you couldn't get through.

I don't understand half the stuff that happens on Blogger or FB.
It's a great shame - I hate losing chums.xox

Pat said...

Mickle: I couldn't agree more:)

Guyana-Gyal said...

As a former tv producer, the thing that positively JARS is that HUGE RED SIGH IN THE MIDDLE! How can they not see? It interrupts the 'visual' flow.

But I wasn't sure that's what you were talking about so I read the comments, and I see we're on the same wave-length.

Pat said...

GG: that doesn't surprise me:)

Granny Annie said...

I know nothing:)

Kevin Musgrove said...

My blood pressure couldn't cope with the Andrew Marr show on a Sunday morning. It's a bit like having to sit in a meeting with some very needy managers.

Pat said...

Granny Annie :not much you don't

Kevin: sometimes I can find someone so annoying there is a masochistic pleasure out of watching them.
