The Tweedles #1

What can you say about the Tweedles other than that they have a lot more convictions than brains?

They were always my favorite of the characters Alice meets.
Not sure why... something Captain Kirk-like about all that conviction?

I've worked with and taught some Tweedles in my day.

Pea-brained - that's funny and I ended up learning a new expression in English.

Fresca- They are also kind rubbery/bouncy, as is the Tiberiunater...

CG- I'll bet you've seen it all .

C - heh, puns are a terrible low form of humor, but I'm not proud.

Two peas in a pod... subtle.

Pea- nuts...

Ger-

The peanut sat by the railroad track
His heart was all a-flutter
Along came a train, the 9:15 –
Toot-toot - peanut butter.

This piece of doggerel always cheers me up for some reason.

Great pea-matching too!

They used to scare me, I didn't like them. I prefer them with apples covering their faces.

What an effective detail.
I've been thinking a lot about metaphorical language today. I was trying to explain "head in the clouds" to one of my students and he just couldn't grasp it. . . despite being a person who could be described in just this way. (I wouldn't like to say he is pea-brained, exactly.)

BTW, I received my Charlotte Bronte t-shirt and my Alice cards today. They look great. I'm going to wear Charlotte to my yoga class!

hoo! never heard the peanut butter song before, nor do i remember the tweedles. I'd better brush up on my Alice.

two peas in a pod, oh god, but those chins and 'bellies' - but seriously...i bet they keep their women warm in the winter!

ArtSparker said...

Thanks, Bee - I thought that was you when I noticed I had sold a Charlotte T-shirt.
