"I cannotta believa I gotta dis job….dis Italian job at that! They thinka that I ama the look outa…well I ama but only fora myself and the richa pickings of Paizza del Popolo!" said Sabazio Seagull!

“I cannotta believa I gotta this job….this Italian job at that! They thinka that I ama the look outa…well I ama but only fora myself and the richa pickings of Piazza del Popolo!” said Sabazio Seagull!

 

It was true that there were rich pickings of food for I myself had taken on a pork sandwich which may well have weighed 3-4lbs! And I did indeed drop a few pieces of both pork and bread!

So without any care for his new position in the Carabinieri and the punishment he had been warned of should he be accused of dereliction of duty, Sabazio began his descent from the top of the van to the cobbled pavements below…..

"If I ama quick they will never notice I ama gone!" said Sabazion with his eye on the prize…..

“If I ama quick they will never notice I ama gone!” said Sabazio with his eye on the prize…..

"I thinka I have made ita!" smirked Sabazion searching for the titbit he had seen!

“I thinka I have made its! No one a saw me!” smirked Sabazion searching for the titbit he had seen!

 

"Firsta I willa tuck my wings away!" said Sabazio!

“Firsta I willa tuck my wings away!” said Sabazio!

 

"And a now I getta the morsel!"

“And a now I getta the morsel!”

 

Sabazio was so convinced no one would see him that he even posed for me to take some close ups…forgetting the promise of punishment should he leave his post atop the van!

"Firsta I will look this way….

“Firsta I will look this way….

 

"Now I will look that way…..

“Now I will look that way…..

 

"Hey you, give a me some more of your pork!!…..

“Hey you, give a me some more of your pork!!…..

 

"I ama so handsome I cannota believe it!….

“I ama so handsome I cannotta believe it!….

But he was seen…….and look what they did to him……

Sabazio is now forever flying above the Piazza del Popolo neither tourist nor seagull!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Descent

Did you hear the one about the two nuns eating a Burger King meal outside the Santa Maria del Popolo in Rome?

"Hey!" said Sister Constance to the highly impressionable Sister Innocence, "Have I got a surprise for you after dis meal!"

“Hey!” said Sister Constant on the left to the highly impressionable Sister Innocent on the right, “Have I got a surprise for you after dis meal!”

 

Sister Constant and Sister Innocent finished their typically Italian meal (!) and Sister Constant could be seen ferreting through her bags…….

"Yes yes," Sister Constance said as she handed the small item to Sister Innocence, "Just one little sip….no one need ever know!"

“Yes yes,” Sister Constant said as she handed the small item to Sister Innocent, “Just one little sip….no one need ever know!”

Then Sister Constant presented another small bottle……of what???

Surely that's not a little after burger schnifter??? Or is it??

Sister Constant knew that she had nearly got Sister Innocent hooked after all it had been easy convincing her that there was nothing wrong with Burger King!!! All Sister Innocent  needed was one taste of the nectar within the bottle and Sister Innocent's descent into junk food and alcoholism would be complete! Another puppet in Sister Constant's ascent to Mother Superiorship!

Sister Innocent's hands were shaking as she undid the bottle…. Oh-oh….Camera woman has been rumbled by Sister Constant…Time to be off!!
