We All Have Our Gifts, and One of Mine Is Being Juvenile

“We All Have Our Gifts, and One of Mine Is Being Juvenile”

We went to the mosaic museum in Antakya yesterday, where I found my attention riveted by a piece entitled “The Happy Hunchback.”  Thoughts of “Why was he so happy anyhow?” and “How cool of the Romans to make such a quirky and unique mosaic” ran through my head.

But mostly, I noted that he may have been a hunchback, but the deck wasn’t stacked entirely against him.

Happy, indeed.

    It's not so much a hunchback as a counterweight. ::rim shot::

    Hahahaha! I think he was immortalized not so much because of his deformity, but because of his enormity! Hmmm, art and sex all rolled into one…I'm going to send my readers over here. 😉

    Hahaha!!!!! As my grandma used to say, what you lose on the roundabout you make up on the swings. Still cackling over "it's not so much a hunchback as a counterweight".(wipes tear from eye).

    I have to admit that when I was looking at the slideshow on your other website, this pic caught my attention. I was all, wait, what? And went back to look at it again.
    Maybe something was lost in translation and it was supposed to be "Happy Hunk Front"
