    Ha. The one on the right is my wife. She didn't even take my name when we married! :smiley:

    Yes. That's a fair shout.
    Also, I was looking at a Luc Tuymans painting ("The Conversation") recently that was a direct influence.
  • Now you've got me. I don't think I know Luc Tuymans.
    Time for a little Googling.
  • Nice! I'd like to see some of his work in the flesh.

    Conversely my wife was the last in all her extended family to carry her particular surname. I suggested that when we married she should either keep it or go double barreled.
    She instead took mine and since regrets not taking my advice.
  • I can imagine.
    My wife is from an Italian family. She's proud of her heritage and sir name. I didn't mind at all her keeping it. Sadly she has only sibling and he has only child, a daughter. So her name will die out in Gloucester.
    We didn't discuss giving our son a doubled barrel sir name. He doe at least have his Italian grandfather's name as a middle name. So there is that small acknowledgement.

  • It's good!

  • Very topical, Ben. Reminds me of Cold War Steve in it's commentary.

  • Satirising both sides of an argument, eh?

    I thoroughly approve!

  • LOL! Whilst grinding my teeth at the way the world is.

    Chicken's way out maybe.
    It's such a complicated issue.
    I'm probably more the first cartoon than the second. Especially what it comes to people like Colston who effectively bought their own legacies with money made from slavery.

    I'll buy you a teething ring.
