Blinking Lights then Chinks of Light. There should be a flash photography warning I tell you!
By the way, talking of Yuman Rites, what’s the connection between Aristophanes and a 40-year anniversary in Iceland?
Erm…..gimme a minute. I’ve only had one cup of coffee yet.
Naeh! Try again! 😆
Did Aristophanes not pay his debts either then?
He wrote satirical plays.
That I, one Snout by name, present a wall.
And such a wall, as I would have you think,
That had in it a crannied hole, or chink,
Through which the lovers, Pyramus and Thisbe,
Did whisper often very secretly.
Writing satirical plays would not have prevented him reneging on his debts as Iceland did.
Anyway, Iceland reneged on their debts much more recently than forty years ago. I’m trying to remember if Aristophanes ever wrote a play called ‘Cods’.
My comment, was of course, the earliest known reference to Chinese whispers, of which the photograph reminded me.
OK, here’s the scoop:
Aristophanes’ play, Lysistrata, described how women went on strike to get a say in public affairs. In 1975. Iceland’s women did the same. 😎
