Don't tell anybody but when I saw that title I thought of the same thing......SHHHHH
What did you think when you saw this title in the Acrylics Forum: "Blue Tit - Bird" here?
I wouldn't have thought of anything, myself unless the OP had not had such tender regard for my sensibilities as to make sure I KNEW what her subject was, and not anything naughty.

Oh I knew it was about the birds....I see a lot of nice little tits in England when I visit.

What?

Here's a song for you...
ARTIST: Gilbert and Sullivan
TITLE: Tit-Willow
Lyrics


[Mikado]

On a tree by a river a little tom-tit
Sang "Willow, titwillow, titwillow"
And I said to him, "Dicky-bird, why do you sit
Singing 'Willow, titwillow, titwillow'"
"Is it weakness of intellect, birdie?" I cried
"Or a rather tough worm in your little inside"
With a shake of his poor little head, he replied
"Oh, willow, titwillow, titwillow!"

He slapped at his chest, as he sat on that bough
Singing "Willow, titwillow, titwillow"
And a cold perspiration bespangled his brow
Oh, willow, titwillow, titwillow
He sobbed and he sighed and a gurgle he gave*
Then he plunged himself into the billowy wave
And an echo arose from the suicide's grave
"Oh, willow, titwillow, titwillow"

Now I feel just as sure as I'm sure that my name
Isn't Willow, titwillow, titwillow
That 'twas blighted affection that made him exclaim
"Oh, willow, titwillow, titwillow"
And if you remain callous and obdurate, I
Shall perish as he did, and you will know why
Though I probably shall not exclaim as I die
"Oh, willow, titwillow, titwillow"

Mine is half done in my head. Does that count? Maybe I'll get something done before the end of the month.

Well, I had good news and bad news for my son this week. Good news, we're going to Winnipeg today. Bad news, he's seeing allergist tomorrow. But he was complaining about cooked peas hurting his mouth so we need to find out if this could be a serious problem. He's a bit of a baby and just screams when they poke his arm.

Dianna, I love that song! How funny is that, I just learned how to play it on the ukulele. Love Gilbert and Sullivan.

Michelle, I don't like to get poked either (which makes the whole diabetic thing fun) but my son has always watched them, I don't know how he does it, gives me the heebie jeebies. Have a good time and tell the Golden Boy, hello for me.

Attalus, that's a nice painting. We have grey titmouses (titmice?) here, they are so pretty with huge black eyes. Of course they have such big eyes to hunt prey with but still, super cute.

I read once that Mae West got away with so much innuendo because before it went to the censors they added all sorts of things they knew they couldn't get away with to distract them from the subtleties.

I'm done with mine, waiting for good light so I can photograph it properly. It's pretty big for me, I'm used to doing miniatures.

Woody, behave yourself!!

@Dianna:

+The Bronx Bird Watcher

On a branch of a tree sat a little tomtit,
Singing willow, tit willow, tit willow.
An uncomfortable place for a boidie to sit,
Singing willow, tit willow, tit willow.
So I said to him, "Boidie, why don't you go way?"
He said, "Thenks very much, but I'm planning to stay.
I'm gung sit on that branch for the rest of the day,
Singing willow, tit willow, tit willow. "
So I said to him, "Boidie, you look so distraught.
Singing willow, tit willow, tit willow.
You gonna be glad when you'll see what I brought.
A pillow, a pillow, a pillow. "
I said, "Boidie, your pardon I humbly would beg.
Put this comfortable pillow right under your leg. "
He said, "Leave me alone while I'm laying an egg.
Uh willow, tit willow, tit willow. "
That night by the light of a matzoh ball moon,
Singing willow, tit willow, tit willow.
That boidie was singing the same catchy tune.
Willow, tit willow, tit willow.
And I came, and I took him right down from his branch,
And I brought him back home to mine split-level ranch,
And I said to my wife, "Here's a gift for you, Blanche.
He sings 'willow, tit willow, tit willow. '"
Next morning I got up and went to the shop,
Singing willow, tit willow, tit willow.
That tune was so catchy, it just wouldn't stop.
Willow willow willow titty willow willow willow
Titty willow willow willow willow.
That night I said, "Blanche, how's the bird?" She said, "Well,
The boid was delicious, it tasted just swell.
But as I fricaseed him, he gave out a yell:
'Oi willow, tit willow, tit willow. '"

Heard that on an Allan Sherman album, long before I ever heard of W.S. Gilbert

So silly!
About birds I caught a little yellowed bellied Finch of some sort, that flew in the Bakery today, captured him in a cake box. I was lauded as a great hunter, I should be with my name.
I took the little trouble maker outside and let him free, he flew to the nearest bush and was completely hidden. I hope he has a safe journey south soon, and a happy little bird life!

Tomorrow is post day, can't wait to see the Mix Up Mash Up artworks.
Deviant Art is having a Mash up Challenge now too!
They have a generator to do the mash-up and you do the artwork. I think I'll give that a go also. It is open for a badge until Oct 19.

Glad you rescued the bird! I like birdwatching. Right now, there's birds off course all over the place because of the various storms and forest fires.

There's a debate in the debate forum about Aliens!
