It looks to me like a whale breaking the surface of the water, carrying the parking guide for a Rolls Royce in its flipper - that has just been scratched by Wolverine out of the X-men.

Since a whale is one of the heavier members of the animal kingdom, and it has possession of something from a Rolls and has been attacked by a sidekick of Professor X,I think it only appropriate to call the picture ‘Beefy Rolex.’

In fact, never mind the picture, I think I’ve just found my stage name....

It's good to see you again, Zesty, after four years.

I assume from your description that you're drinking the same stuff Roger is drinking.

Soup is not my award winning answer. I heard the bell ding on the microwave and had to get my soup out (leek & potato).
People will come from strange lands to hear me speak my words of wisdom. They will ask me the secret of life and I will tell them. Then maybe I'll finish off with a song. The Nomad

How did this turn into a creative writing task?

Here's how to properly enter this competition:

1. At least look at the abstract art.

2. Write a competition entry.

3. Back up your answer with reference to the text, paying particular attention to rhyme scheme and word choice by pointing out where you are seeing what you are seeing.

I'm grading a lot of you down if you don't make some kind of passing reference to the artwork. I've got my red pen ready!

Oh, how wrong you are.

Nope! That was genuinely painted by someone.

Egg and Tarks are in the lead here simply for pointing out vague shapes in the painting.

Okay, I'll share with Egg. He can have the hard centres, coffee cremes, and the Turkish Delights.
I apologise, in advance.

I'm going to declare the winner on the morning of Saturday 2nd December. Like Roger in previous competitions, I have concluded that it's best not to leave things too late. Royal Mail is not always reliable, especially around Christmas, and I want to make sure I leave myself more than enough time to look for some sweets that I can nosh with the money I save in postage and by not buying a prize. I shall, however, post a photo here of something you would have been happy receiving.

Wouldn't you rather have a full-sized one?

By the way, toffees count as hard centres.  :\
