A small guinea-pig wearing a crash-helmet and flak-jacket and armed with a flame-thrower; the theory being that, if some small child gets in the way, it isn't necessarily the fault of the top brass, they can always blame it on the guinea-pig.

An unlikely explanation to a small child for the recent death of its guinea-pig.

Spell Chick

The angels came and then the angles came and then the devils came and then the circles came and then the guinea pig was so confused by all this that she ran after the rolling, flying, flaming items until she got lost and forever lost her way back home.


an unlucky thing to find in the trunk of your car
Imperfect Reason My thoughts, such as they are.

Gyppo

A gagged, cable-tied, and badly mutilated packet of Cornflakes, because a dyslexic 'cereal killer' had mis-read the number plate of your similarly coloured car and dumped his latest victim in your vehicle before heading back into the supermarket to hunt Shreddies.

An unlikely explanation for finding a naked woman hiding in your fridge.

Spell Chick

She is an Athabaskan touring GB and got terribly nostalgic



an unlikely new thing to be pickled
Imperfect Reason My thoughts, such as they are.

Chocolate caramel or your teetotaling great-grandmother who has never touched a drop of alcohol in her life.


An unlikely place to find said great-grandmother.

Spell Chick

on/in the spinning cups ride at the county fair



an unlikely reason to purchase flyswatters en masse
Imperfect Reason My thoughts, such as they are.

Gyppo

To use as bookmarks in hugely oversized Bibles, bought in bulk as part of a ploy to make the congregation of your local church think they have all suddenly shrunken overnight to Pygmy proportions after reviling a local but harmless witch.

Unlikely reaction of said congregation when they first encounter the oversized volumes.

Spell Chick

Docile and cheerful acceptance of the new normal, unlike any group since the invention of time.




unlikely reason to rescue a lawn chair from the local dump.
Imperfect Reason My thoughts, such as they are.

Something about its jaunty stance makes you think it's inhabited by the ghost of your late Uncle Percival.  He always said, jovially, "I'll come back and haunt you" - and he liked spending time in the garden.

An unlikely garden feature

Gyppo

Charlie Dimmock, working hard but not flashing her cleavage at any passing camera.

Unlikely reaction of any passing camera crew.

Not looking.


AN unlikely excuse to turn down a portrait.

"It doesn't look like me."  Most portraits that are rejected are disliked precisely because they look too much like the sitter, and fail to flatter his image of himself.

An unlikely new medium for an avant-garde artist to adopt.  (Remember, elephant dung has already been taken.)

Gyppo

Belly button fluff and earwax, mixed and used to sculpt miniature holy caricatures.

(May not be new.  Sounds like something Salvador Dali may well have experimented with.)


Unlikely reason why this 'new art' may be embraced by the Westboro Baptist extremists/

Jo Bannister

They believe that, as a form of human sacrifice but without the blood or legal consequences, these oddball icons have a particular religious significance.  Why not? - they probably believe stranger things.

An unlikely decoration for the top of a Christmas tree

Gyppo

A complete stuffed Turkey, still hot and drpping from the oven.

An unlikely thing to find stuffed inside the aforementioned Turkey
