H is for Harpies
I have spent the day working on a door although it has a bit of an issue at present as the hole that the door fits into has a curved side. That is very annoying indeed and has added slightly more work to the task involved. Now some of you are probably wondering what is Rob Z Tobor doing with a door in the first place, after all he is the eccentric child of cyberspace and should be doing strange things in that cyber-school of his, not making a door to keep the harpies out.
Well that is true but I need to work on diversity in order to keep the very nice Steven Spielberg interested in the block buster film script. To achieve this I am covering every single plot possible to man . . . . . . . .as long as it involves friendly but slightly scary things, yes OK the odd thing eats folk but that is life, you create a Zombie tell him where the canteen is and what does he do, eat all the cooks, they are rubbish at instructions (that’s Zombies not cooks, they discovered Austria, that’s cooks not Zombies).
So I have drawn a friendly harpy today just to avoid any filming issues when Mr Spielberg shouts cut. We don’t want folk losing arms again do we? Harpies get a bad name historically when in fact they like nothing better than a bit of a fly round the church tower chasing seagulls and eating the odd vicar while hurling grave stones at the congregation, laughing hysterically and making rude gestures with their feet. Ok harpies are a bit naughty and Pooing on Nelsons Column is I agree a little un-lady like, but as they say themselves the pigeons do it all the time. I don’t think I will be the one to tell them that Harpy Poo is a bit smellier and larger than Pigeon Poo, OK they have a bit of a temper too and are grumpy and keep bees in jam jars full of plastic flowers to confuse the bees. Harpies don’t eat honey, unless it is a cute ginger kitten. But they are not all bad. . . . OK they are . . . which is why I am making a door.
