090814 Merlion

By August 9, 2014zBlog Archives

This week on the OED front is proving tricky – I have a very limited subject palette and some rather obscure words. Today was particularly problematic – “merlion”, which is: ‘A mythical creature with the head and trunk of a lion and the tail of a fish, regarded as the protector of Singapore’ (OED). Well, that just wasn’t going to happen. I therefore introduce you to Barbie – appetite of a lion, swims like a fish and is MisterMac’s self-appointed protector. It’s not even a very good picture, but hey ho … needs must …

Day #218 of a 365 project, where the daily pic is informed by the OED word of the day.
